FOR REVIEW



Advent by James Treadwell (proof from Hodder)
This one sounds pretty good - not heard much about it but it looks good! 

Black Arts by Prentice and Weil (Proof from David Fickling Books)
Not heard of this before! It looks pretty good - not quite sure what it's about and it's HUGE but I might give it a read nearer it's release in April :)


Fracture by Megan Miranda (Finished copy from Bloomsbury)
This is my second copy of this now - it looks SO good! I can't wait to read it :D


BORROWED



The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab (sent by the lovely Cicely from Cicely Loves Books)
Cic and I did a borrow swap kind of thing - I lent her a couple books and she lent me this! I'm on page 100 and it's very good, I can't wait to see what happens towards the end! Cole is very interesting... ;D Thanks Cicely!


GIFTED


Dash & Lily's Book of Dares


Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (gifted by the awesome Iffath from Painting With Words)
I'm so excited to read this! I'll be reading it nearer Christmas, and I'm hoping it will completely get into a Christmassy mood :D Can't wait! Thanks Iffath!


SWAG

 


Lenore Appelhans (@lenoreva) sent me an awesome swag pack, which contained a German Hunger Games tribute guide, a chapter sampler from Tempest by Julie Cross, and some awesome bookmarks, three of which were signed! :D Thanks so much! And them Cicely sent me some more awesome swag when she sent The Near Witch, (some more awesome bookmarks and another Hunger Games booklet), so I shall have to think of something awesome to send back when I'm done with TNW... :D

That's everything I got for the past two weeks - post has been quite slow but that's a good thing because I'm hoping to read lots before the end of the year! What did you get in your mailbox this week? Leave me a link and comment and I'll be sure to return the favour! :D

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.

Only she can find and decrypt it, if she can unravel the clues he left for her. The closer she gets, the more she finds herself at risk from Cartaxus, a shadowy organization with a stranglehold on the world's genetic…

#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

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: 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 …
