February 2012 Round-Up

So I decided I'd like to do a little round up post at the end of each month, just to list everything I've read that month, what I liked best, what I didn't like so much, that kind of stuff. It's more for me than for you, but I thought you might like to see because I like to see what other people have been reading... ;P So here's what I've read this month!

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl  Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)  Vixen

1. Falling Fast by Sophie McKenzie
2. Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
3. The Kissing Game by Aidan Chambers
4. The Killables by Gemma Malley
5. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
6. Wonder by RJ Palacio
7. Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin
8. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
9. Vixen by Jillian Larkin

These are just the complete books I've read this month, I'm currently half way through Forgiven by Jana Oliver, so technically this month I've read 9 and a half books! Not too bad, I don't think, though I would have liked to have read more, especially seeing as half term was in the middle of February... 

Anyway, I did some (not-so) speedy mathematics and I have come up with some useless but hopefully interesting information... 

Number of pages read in February: 2874
Average number of pages per book: 319 

But that's all I could think of to do with my maths ;P So, I'll announce my favourite book of the month: 

AU REVOIR, CRAZY EUROPEAN CHICK by Joe Schreiber



My review of this will go up on its release date which is 5th March! All other reviews of books I read this month will also be going up some time in the first couple of weeks of March :)

Here are some of the books I'll be reading in March, the ones I'm especially excited for!

Spellcaster (Spellbound, #2)  Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2)  Dark Storm

And lastly, I thought I could do a little something to get you guys to comment more. I totally understand that you probably read hundreds of blogs and you don't have time to comment, or sometimes you just can't be bothered (like me...) so I'm going to, at the end of every month, post who's commented on posts the most in the month! Like a commenting competition, but I don't have prizes because I'm broke ;P So this month, it was...

BookLuvr Mindy!

Thanks for commenting! Do you like this idea? Would you comment more if I made this a monthly thing? I don't know if it'll make a difference, and I may well forget, but let me know, in the comments, your thoughts :) I could buy like, sweets and send them to you, if you wanted? ;P Can you even send food in the post? (UK only, sadly) I don't know, just whatever you want to say, say it in the comments! ;D Thanks for reading!

#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 …

Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017

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 …
