Top 10 Books of 2011

Hey guys. I've had lots of trouble with this post. It's SO difficult to choose because I've read so much AWESOME this year and I don't know if I'll be able to pick just 10... I might have to have some honourable mentions down the bottom... Oh well, anyway, here goes! In no particular order my Top Ten of 2011!

Divergent (Divergent, #1)1. Divergent by Veronica Roth - Definitely my favourite dystopian ever. I think I've decided that it's even better than The Hunger Games... Maybe xD [My review]

2. The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler - SO SO SO GOOD! Read it. Now. [My review]

3. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - Creepy and it freaked me out so much but it's awesome freaking out over a book :D [My review]

4. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini - Greek mythology and starcrossed lovers... *sigh* [My review]

5. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting - JAY. [My review]

6. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly - Honestly I think it's the best historical fiction book EVER. Blew my mind - incredible. [My review]


Supernaturally (Paranormalcy, #2)
7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - So adorable. [My review]

8. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - So adorable. Maybe even more adorable than Anna. *melts* [My review]

9. Supernaturally by Kiersten White - These books are amazing. Mostly because of Evie, but everything else is awesome too :D [My review]

10. Dearly Departed by Lia Habel - Enjoyed it way more than I expected to! So AWESOME :D Can't wait for the next one! [My review]

HONOURABLE MENTIONS - Very nearly made the list! Because I couldn't decide on only 10. 

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles [My review]
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger [My review]
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab [My review]
Wither by Lauren Destefano [My review]
Delirium by Lauren Oliver [My review]

So there we have my top 15 favourite reads of 2011. If you haven't read any of these, YOU SO SHOULD. I buy you a copy myself but I've already spent all my money from Christmas on books for me... Sorry ;P Now go and read them! :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). 


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 …

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 …
