Dearly Departed by Lia Habel (UK Proof)
This is described as steampunk and zombies - I'm not sure about steampunk, but I LOVE zombies :D It sounds awesome, so I can't wait to read this! Thank you to Random House for this one!


This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel (UK Proof)
This one sounds awesome too! It has something to do with Frankenstein, and it sounds super creepy and I love creepy! :) Thank you again to Random House for this one! 


SWAPPED

My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey (UK paperback)
I got this in my first ever swap (swapped it for Shimmer by Alyson Noel) and it looks awesome! I got it from the library a couple of months ago but I never got around to reading it and had to take it back because realistically at the time there was no way I would be able to read it. But, there’s time now, and it’s mine to keep so I can’t wait to read it!


What did you get in your mailboxes? Leave me a link in the comments! :D


*** I don't have internet at the moment at home, and I probably won't get it back until Wednesday so I won't be able to comment or email, but I can tweet so if you need me, tweet me, @CheezyfeetBooks! :D

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!

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.
