In My Mailbox #37

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

Once again, this week, the sound in my video is awful. And the lighting's pretty rubbish too... I did my best, it's just I use the camera on my laptop and let's be honest, laptop webcams are not great. Anyway, I've listed the books underneath and typed out all the important bits that I say, just in case you can't watch it ;)


Bought:
Lost In Time by Melissa de la Cruz
Between by Jessica Warman
Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien

Gifted:
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce

(Thanks to my parents for these birthday presents! Have read them both and they were AMAZING and I wanted finished HB copies)

For Review:
After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel
Footloose by Ruby Josephs

(Thanks to Bloomsbury for both of these!)

Then I showed 4 books that I got signed this week:

Crescendo and Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick - I went to a signing in Foyles and she signed these for me :)
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - I also went to a different signing and got this signed, which is also where I got...
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - Cassie was a special guest at the Maureen Johnson signing, and I happened* to have my copy of CoB with me... ;)

*When I say happened... I mean, I took it because I knew she was going to be there and I thought I could sneak it to her to sign for me ;) And because she's a nice person, she did! :D

Haha, this is me with Maureen Johnson :) Cheesy grin! ;) It was such a good event! I met Cicely from Cicely Loves Books and her mum for the second time this week (and ever) and they were SO nice, and Maureen of course was awesome too :D And I met Becca Fitzpatrick for the second time this week too, where again I met Cicely and her mum... I do have pictures but not uploaded onto this computer ;) Overall though, great week for bookish things! :D

Anyway, I think I had a pretty good week this week! Let me know what you got in your mailbox this week - leave me a link in the comments! Hope you have a great week - I'm off on holiday** :)

**Which is why I might not be posting anything this week... Because we're going away and I have NO IDEA if there'll be any internet or signal at all there... I tried to get things scheduled and written beforehand, but I got distracted and haven't written anything... Completely my fault, of course! So if there's nothing posted, that's why! Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

#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

Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
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 …
