In My Mailbox #45

Hey everyone, welcome to another In My Mailbox, hosted by The Story Siren! :) I've decided I can't be bothered to only do it every month - so now it's spontaneous! Whenever I feel I have enough books to show you, you'll see them :D This week I have lots - I bought rather a lot, so I need to go on book buying ban immediately, I think ;P

For Review:

Fury by Elizabeth Miles 
Unrest by Michelle Harrison
Torn by Amanda Hocking
When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle
Fever by Lauren Destefano x2


Slide by Jill Hathaway
Department 19 by Will Hill x2
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson x2


The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins - So I read the UK paperbacks when they all first came out, and the books are AMAZING. Seriously, if you haven't read them, what are you waiting for?! But the UK PBs aren't that nice, and the US hardcovers are gorgeous, and I need to reread the first one before the movie comes out so I used it as an excuse to buy these beautiful books xD They are definitely among the most gorgeous things I own! :D

So what did you get in your mailboxes this week? I'm especially excited to read Slide, Fever and Unrest, and all books that I have duplicates of (Dept 19, The Name of the Star, and Fever) have gone into my giveaway pile as prizes! I now have six books in this pile, so look out for a giveaway or two soon! :D 

Also, The Name of the Star and Department 19 are both ONE POUND (£1) in Waterstones, to celebrate World Book Day! If you're in the UK, head over to your nearest Waterstones to buy them, because they are awesome books and an absolute bargain! :D 

Leave me a comment and link, and I'll come check out what you got in your mailbox this week! Happy reading everyone!

#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 …
