Bella and Daph's Epic Review Month: Kick-Off


Hello! Welcome to the kick-off post for Bella & Daph's Epic Review Month! May has finally arrived, so our month of reading and reviewing can get started - and so can yours! :D

If you missed the announcement, basically, Daph from Loving Books and I are using May as a chance to read and review as many review books as we can, to get our review piles down to make room for all of the awesome new releases coming out in the next couple of months. We decided to make it a feature, so you can join in too! If you don't have review books - that's fine - just read as much as you can! :D For more info go here or here.

Here's what I'm planning on reading...
Unrest by Michelle Harrison
We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
Black Heart Blue by Louisa Reid
Rules of Attraction & Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles
*whispers* And then I have some sneaky exceptions to the review only rule...
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

We have a tentative schedule for you, so you'll know who's posting what and when:
Wednesdays: Q&As - with other bloggers about reading and reviewing!
Fridays and Saturdays: Weekly wrap-up days! This is where you'll link up reviews and check-up posts, etc.
Friday 11th: Readathon #1 - the whole weekend - join in when you can!
Saturday 19th: Readathon #2 - mini 24hrs for anyone who can't join in the first one.
Sat 26th & Sun 27th: Reviewathon - to catch up with all those pesky reviews :D

Sound good? We hope so! If you're still not sure, we have giveaways planned too, just in case you need that extra incentive ;P So...
Once you're all signed up and you've grabbed the button from below (not necessary, but you know, sharing is good and all that ;P ) then you can get reading! We'll have weekly check ups for you all, so you can see how we are doing, and we're hoping you'll link up reviews and any weekly check ups that you post throughout the month to keep us updated too! Check back here and at Loving Books too so you don't miss any posts, and most of all, HAVE FUN!! :D We'll see you soon! :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).

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 …
