In My Mailbox #27

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and showcases the books you received in the week, whether it came to you in the mail, or you bought it in a shop :) Bought, borrowed, gifted, one, or for review, they all count! :) Also, I have no actual photos today because my camera's out of battery and I can't be bothered to charge it because I am a lazy person. So all pictures are from Goodreads :)

BOUGHT

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour  Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson (UK Paperback)
I'm so excited to read this - I've only heard good things about it, so yay! I'm going to try and fit it in with my summer reading :) Also, the back is so cool, it's like a postcard...

Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done by Sarah Mlynowski (UK Paperback)
Lots of people don't like this cover and title, and I agree that the US one is better, but this one isn't hideous... And it was cheaper :) It looks hilarious and it's got really good reviews, so like Amy & Roger I'm going to try and fit it in with my summer reading too :)

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
