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

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
