FOR REVIEW






Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (UK Paperback) *SQUEEE*
I was SO excited when this arrived, and it was AMAZING! :D I loved it! If you were a little worried that it didn't live up to VA, don't be, because it's awesome... Thanks to Penguin for this one!


Vampire Academy: A Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead, Emma Vieceli and Leigh Dragoon (UK Paperback)
Again, I was so excited for this one too, as it is a graphic novel of the first VA book, and it was awesome! I read it all in one sitting completely by accident - I was only going to read a few pages but I ended up reading it all! Thanks again to Penguin for this one!


GIFTED/WON






Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough (UK Proof)
Caroline from Portrait of a Woman sent me this; she had a first come first serve giveaway and I managed to get this :) I've heard lots of good things about it, and it looks awesome, (if a little creepy) so I can't wait to read it! Thanks Caroline!

Angel Fire by LA Weatherly Sneak Peak
YAY! I LOVED Angel, the first book, so I was really excited to get this sneak peak! Now I can't wait for Angel Fire even more... And I don't think that sentence makes sense... Oh well, thanks to Usborne for this! :)

  8. I actually didn't get Bloodlines this week, :(

    I ordered mine, along with the graphic novel and Succubus Revealed from Richelle's store--total impulse buy to pay full price for all 3, but I wanted signed copies badly! So can't wait to read them though! Hoping they come either late this week or next!

    Here's my IMM

    Have a GREAT day!!

#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 …

Book Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

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 …
