No video this week, sorry! I'm feeling lazy ;)


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


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!


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!



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

REVIEW: A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood

Hello all! Hope you're all enjoying the summer! I'm currently on holiday in a huge castle in the South of France and enjoying relaxing, playing games, and of course reading a lot!  Today's post is a review of a dreamy summer romance that's perfect for your holiday TBRs! Title:  A Sky Painted Gold Author:  Laura Wood Series:   n/a Pages:   356 Publisher:  Scholastic Date of Publication:  5th July, 2018 Source:  Publisher for review* Synopsis from Goodreads: Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village dreaming of being a writer, sixteen-year-old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years.

Book Review: Insight by Jamie Magee

Title: Insight Author: Jamie Magee Series: Insight #1 Pages: 314 Date of UK Publications: July 20th 2010 Source: Received free for a blog tour/event Synopsis from Goodreads: Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever.

In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.
