B&DERM: Wrap-up #4 and UK Giveaway


Hey! The fourth(ish) week of May is now over and it's time for our fourth wrap-up post for Bella & Daph's Epic Review Month! Hopefully you've managed to make a dent in your TBR pile - a bigger one than I have! :) 

What I read:
I've only read one book in the last two weeks - and that was The Gathering Dark by Leigh Bardugo (called Shadow and Bone in the US). I've had my first exams (and they went well, I think) but I've still got revision to do so I probably won't get much else read! But, I have read 60 pages of Fall For Anything by Courtney Summer, which isn't a review book, but shhh ;P 

What have you read this week?
Leave a comment below telling us what you read this week and what you thought of it, etc etc! Or, you can write your own wrap-up post and link up in the linky below :) 

Written any reviews for books you've read this month?
If you have, link them below! They'll make you eligible for a giveaway ;P A couple sentences on Goodreads or Shelfari or Facebook, or a full review on your blog or wherever is awesome! :) Just remember to link up in the format:

Your name: Book Title
eg. Bella: The Gathering Dark

And now for the UK giveaway!
If you've linked up any reviews in the linky above, signed up in the main kick-off post, and you live in the UK, you are eligible for this giveaway! One winner can choose from these prizes:

A signed UK paperback of The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting
A signed UK paperback of The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
A UK paperback of Department 19 by Will Hill
A UK paperback of Fever by Lauren Destefano

The prize will (probably) come with an assortment of signed and unsigned swag :)

As I have now run two giveaways - some of these prizes may already have been claimed in the first giveaway. As I have not contacted the winner yet, I do not know which book they would like so these prizes are subject to change (in that one of them may not be available).

I know the prizes aren't great, but it's everything I have to offer! Again, I'm sorry it's not open internationally, but there are and will be international B&DERM giveaways too!

#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 …

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 …
