DNF: Fever by Dee Shulman

So, as always, I wanted to read more than I did this month... Surprise, surprise ;P I don't expect May and June to be any different because I have my first public exams coming up and I'm planning on revising and doing really well so I don't know how much time I'll get to actually read, but hopefully I won't completely abandon my books :S But I did manage to read more than I did in March so that's good ;P 

My monthly maths:

Number of pages read in April: 3032 (+ 150 of the DNF)
Average number of pages per book: 379

My favourite book of this month, hands down, is...

INSURGENT by Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)

My review will be posted on the 3rd. 

Here's what I'm most looking forward to reading in May:

Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry, #2)  Black Heart Blue  Struck

And lastly, let me announce who did the most commenting this month! The winner is...


Thanks for commenting Iffath! ;D I had fewer comments than last month... But I also didn't post as much so I guess that's why... Anyway, bye April, hello May (tomorrow...)! :D 


  1. It looks like you read some awesome books this month, Bella! I can't wait to get my hands on Insurgent. I'm jealous of many of my fellow blogger friends who have an ARC!

#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.

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 …
