BOUGHT






Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (Kindle version)
I am SO excited to read this! It sounds so awesome :D I loved Forgive My Fins and I love Greek mythology, so nothing can go wrong with this, right? ;)


FOR REVIEW




The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker (UK Proof)
I'd seen this around other people's IMMs and thought it looked pretty interesting, and then it turned up on my doorstep on Monday, and I've read the back and looked it up on GR and it looks awesome! Can't wait to read it!


WON






A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford (US Hardback)
I won this in Daph from Loving Books' Birthday Bash giveaway! I was so happy and the book is beautiful, so THANK YOU DAPH!! I can't wait to read it, I've heard mixed things about it but I've always thought it sounded good :) 


FREE






Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen with bonus material (Kindle edition)
This was free and I've been wanting to read it for a while, so of course I had to preorder it, as it only came out (this edition) on 6th, but that was a couple of weeks ago, and I'd completely forgotten it until it arrived on my Kindle... It's looks really good though, I can't wait to read it!



What did you get in your mailboxes this week? Leave me a link in the comments and I'll be sure to pop over to yours and have a little look! :D

  9. OOh you did good! Can't make up my mind whether or not to get Sweet Venom. I love Greek mythology as well but recent reviews have led me to believe that I might not enjoy it as much as I think I would.

    Oh well. Will have to look for your review to help further my decision! Happy Reading!

#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 …
