Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I'd Want At My Thanksgiving Dinner

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish :) Every week we make a list - this week it's: 


1. Maggie Stiefvater - I went to her signing last week and her talk was hilarious! 

2. Maureen Johnson - Again, I went to her signing and she was awesome too :D

3. Kiersten White - I love love love her books, so I'd love to meet her!

4. Stephanie Perkins - Again, I love her books, so I'd love to ask her where she got her inspiration for Etienne and Cricket from, and how she is able to write such adorable books :)

5. Cassandra Clare - She's awesome. Her books are some of my favourites and I'd love to meet her!

6. Lauren Oliver - Her books are amazing :D She'd be awesome! 

7. Stephenie Meyer - Her books basically got me reading loads again... I read before Twilight, but nowhere near as much as I do now. It'd be great to meet her and thank her for introducing me to the young adult genre that finally got me reading again!

8. Kody Keplinger - I've only read Shut Out but I absolutely adored it! I had a convo with her once on Twitter about Gossip Girl and other TV shows, and I just think she'd be great to talk to about anything :) 

9. Jackson Pearce - I LOVE her YouTube videos! And her books too!

10. John Green - I've only read one book by him and it was good, but his YouTube videos are also awesome! It'd be great to meet him :D

#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).

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 …
