Top 10 Books I Wish I'd Read In 2011

Good morning/evening/afternoon/night! Here is my list of the top ten books I wish I'd got around to reading in 2011! :D In no particular order, of course ;)

Angelfire (Angelfire, #1)1. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton - Everybody says it's amazing. I read a sample on my Kindle and it was amazing. WHY HAVEN'T I READ IT YET?!

2. A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford - There have been mixed reviews of this one, but I'm still really excited to read it! I won it back in August and I still haven't read it... I'm so bad... Must get round to it soon, or I think Daph will kill me... ;)

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)
3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis - Another one that I've (nearly) only heard good things about. Again, I've had it on my shelf for AGES and I still haven't read it... I'll try and read it before A Million Suns comes out here! :D

4. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - I received this from Sara from Just Another Story for my birthday, and I feel really bad for not reading it... Especially because it looks so awesome and EVERYBODY says it's amazing :D Like, seriously, I literally don't know anyone that didn't like it... So I MUST get to this one in 2012!

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)5. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - Yeah, I still haven't read it. I don't know why, but when I got it I just wasn't as excited as I wanted to be! So I haven't read it - I'm waiting for the hype to die down so I can read it with an open mind because if I'm expecting it to be my favourite read of the year and it's not, I'll be very sad, you know? ;) That said, I kind of wish I'd already read it - people are talking about it and I can't join in because I haven't read it yet!

6. Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman - I tweeted I needed to read this and so many people tweeted me back agreeing. So, I've downloaded it and I will most definitely read it next year because it looks AMAZING. I just wish I'd bought and read it earlier!

Sweet Venom (Medusa Girls #1)
7. Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs - This sounds SO good and I downloaded it onto my Kindle as soon as I could so I could read it as soon as possible... But I never did. Which is a shame because I adored Forgive My Fins... So hopefully I can get around to this one in 2012!

8. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer - I LOVED the first one of these, but I just never got around to reading this one... I think I'll wait until the final book, Bloodrose comes out so I don't have to wait in between the books... ;)

9. Hourglass by Myra McEntire - A YA about Time Travel. YES PLEASE. I won it in September and I haven't read it yet... Again. AHH! I NEED MORE TIME TO READ! Definitely very high on my TBR for 2012 :D

Between Shades of Gray10. Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys - I know, I know, this book is AMAZING. Like, everyone says so. And I HAVEN'T READ IT YET. I haven't even GOT it... Ahh! I'm going to read it next year, I promise. I promise I promise I promise ;D It's cheap on Kindle right now... ;D

And there it is! My list of ten books that I WILL most definitely (probably (hopefully)) read in 2012 because I'm naughty and didn't read them this year... Let me know in the comments the books that you wish you'd gotten around to!


  1. Oh the humanity! Jellicoe Road is SO amazing (but you know that). Get to it Bella, you will not regret. Also Across the Universe was a grand surprise for me. I am very excited for A Million Suns. Enjoy!

  2. Between Shades of Gray and Across the Universe are amazing. Unfortunately I didn't like Jellicoe Road but I hope you will!

  3. There are quite a few things on this list that I own but haven't read yet either. Like you, I wanted to wait on Wolfsbane. I did real Angelfire since I went to meet the author and it was really good. So was Across the Universe and Beth Revis is too dang funny!

  4. I really wanted to read Across the Universe last year too. Hopefully I'll read it this year.

  5. Lots of great books on your list, looks like you have an amazing reading journey ahead of you. Can't tell you how much I ADORE Jellicoe Road and Boys Don't Cry. Between Shades of Gray was so emotional for me as well..

#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 …
