B&DERM: Final Wrap-Up!

Hello! This is the final post for Bella & Daph's Epic Review Month! We hope you enjoyed it, we certainly did! Hopefully you managed to make a dent in your towering TBRs and get some reviews written have been sitting waiting for ages. I didn't get as much as reading done as I'd have like, due to revision and schoolwork, but I think it's definitely helped to know other people are reading as much as they can too!

What I read this month:
We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
Black Heart Blue by Louisa Reid
Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
The Gathering Dark by Leigh Bardugo
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers

Like I said, with revision and everything, I think I've done pretty well! I'm also part-way through The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead, but there's no way I'll finish that tonight so I won't count it...

#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 …
