March 2012 Round-Up

Hey! Welcome to my monthly round-up post for March - I remembered! ;) This is where I'll just post all the books I've read this month, what I liked, what I didn't like, what I'm excited for next month, and all stuff like that! So, here's everything I've read this month!

Forgiven (The Demon Trappers, #3)  Fever (The Chemical Garden, #2)  Spellcaster (Spellbound, #2)

1. Forgiven by Jana Oliver
2. Fever by Lauren Destefano
3. Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
4. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
5. Raising Demons by Rachel Hawkins
6. Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins
7. Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Shultz 

So I didn't really read all that much this month... I was hoping to read more but lately I've been doing other things instead, even though I don't want to be. Mostly Twitter, to be honest, I just can't keep off it! I'm hoping to read more in April, because the first two weeks of it are the Easter holidays (woo!) so I'll have plenty of time, in theory ;)

Here's my monthly maths: 

Number of pages read in March: 2467
Average number of pages per book: 352

The honour of favourite book of the month goes to...

SPELL BOUND by Rachel Hawkins

Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3)

My review is posted here.

What am I looking forward to reading in April? Lots! But here's what I especially can't wait for:

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)  Fins Are Forever  Starters (Starters, #1)

So do any of you remember I said I'd post who commented the most on my posts this month? Yeah, I forgot too... ;P But I thought I'd count up anyway, see who it was ;D And it was...

Raimy-rawr!

Thanks for commenting! *hugs* I got more comments this month than last month, do you think it was this? I don't - I think it was just coincidence to be honest... Oh well, I'll keep counting up the comments, it only takes a couple of minutes ;) 

Thanks for reading! Leave me a comment about anything you read here, or if you just wanted to say something, etc... I love comments so seriously, just say whatever (but be nice ;P ) I hope you all had a great March and I wish you a happy April! :D

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)

#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 …
