Announcement! May is Bella & Daph's Epic Review Month!


I have an announcement to make! The awesome Daph from Loving Books and I have been plotting something (hopefully) very exciting for the whole month of May - basically, it's a month where you try extra extra hard to make a dent in your review TBR pile! The last month or so I've been in a bit of a funk and I haven't read as much as I'd like to, and Goodreads keeps telling me I'm six or seven books behind on my target so I'm hoping this month will help both you and us! And the best thing? You can join in too! :D

We've got some really exciting things planned - international giveaways for all participants, Q&As with other bloggers on how they tackle their TBRs, their thoughts on NetGalley and loads of other tips and interesting things about being a book reader and reviewer! And if you're finding it difficult to find the time to read and review, we've got a readathon and a reviewathon planned out so you won't be alone!

The dates for these 'thons are as follows:
Readathon: 11th - 13th - make sure you have this weekend free so you can read and read and read!
Reviewathon: 18th - 20th - this is to give you that extra push needed to review all those books you read in the readathon ;P

Not a blogger?
That's fine! The whole point of the month is to get the reading out of the way to make room for all the awesome new books that are coming out in summer, so you don't have to be a blogger/reviewer to take part. You can just do all the reading and skip the reviewing - maybe even read more because of it :)

So, are you up for it? From May 1st to May 31st, a whole month of everything bookish - from reading to reviewing! Hopefully you can reduce your TBR pile, get some of those books that have been neglected read and reviewed, so everyone's happy. But the most important thing - we want to have lots of bookish fun! Kick-off post with more information and a tentative schedule goes up on May 1st - we can't wait to see you then! :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 …

Book Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel
Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
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 …
