FOR REVIEW


Sorry for the dark picture... ;) 


Kill All Enemies by Melvin Burgess (UK Proof)
I was a little bit worried about what I would think of this as it's not the kind of book I would normally read, and it was for a blog tour... But I'm half way through and it's AMAZING :D So good! Thanks to Penguin for this one!


Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan (UK Proof) *SQUEE*
I am SO EXCITED to have this one, it sounds AMAZING :D Thanks to MacMillan for this one!


VIII by H.M. Castor (UK Proof)
This is also for a blog tour coming up in October, and I'm really excited for it! It's a fictional account of Henry VIII's life and it sounds really good, and it's had some amazing review, so I'm excited to read this! Thanks to Templar Publishing for this one!


Abandon


Abandon by Meg Cabot (UK Proof) *Squee*
Again, another really exciting book! :D And the UK paperback cover is GORGEOUS. I mean, the US hardback is nice, but this one is even better :D I've even included a picture so you can see the amazingness of it :) In my opinion, anyway... ;) Thanks to MacMillan for this one!


Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts (UK Paperback)
I'd never heard of this one before I opened the parcel, but it sounds really good so I'm excited to give this one a try! Thanks to MacMillan again for this one!

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada: Review and Giveaway!

Hello! Today I have a review and giveaway for you guys! I was lucky enough to meet Emily Suvada this week, and so I've got a signed copy of This Mortal Coil to give away today!




Here's my review of this great book to whet your appetite!

Her father was the world's leading geneticist, and humanity's best hope of beating a devastating virus. Then, hidden beneath Cole's genehacked enhancements she finds a message of hope: Lachlan created a vaccine.

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower  Author: Stephen Chbosky
Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
