I've been a bad blogger, everybody, I know... But it's August now, it's the holidays, and I want to get back into blogging properly! So here is a round-up of everything I've read since I last did one of these round-ups... ;P

MAY

1. Black Heart Blue by Louisa Reid
2. Struck by Jennifer Bosworth
3. The Gathering Dark by Leigh Bardugo

Only four that month! This was my first exam month though, so that's why... Now, onto June! 

JUNE

2. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
3. The Glimpse by Claire Merle
4. Devilish by Maureen Johnson
5. Emma Hearts LA by Keris Stainton

But I guess I can't use exams as an excuse... As in June I had three compared to the one I had in May and still read a whole two more books! Lastly, July! 

JULY

1. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (reread)
2. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
3. Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
4. Debutantes by Cora Harrison
5. Endlessly by Kiersten White

So July wasn't that great either... Oh well! School's over, and I'm going on holiday for two weeks and am planning to do nothing but read and watch Doctor Who so I should get lots read in August, hopefully! 

Oh my goodness, next is my monthly maths... 

Number of pages read in May: 1311
Average number of pages per book: 328

Number of pages read in June: 2188

Well that was fun... ;P So my favourite books of these months were: 

May: THE GATHERING DARK by Leigh Bardugo
June: SECOND CHANCE SUMMER by Morgan Matson
July: ENDLESSLY by Kiersten White

The Gathering Dark  Second Chance Summer  Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)


And these are the books I'm most looking forward to reading in August: 

Foretold (The Demon Trappers, #4)  Speechless  Amy & Roger's Epic Detour

And I'm not going to count up all the comments... I can't be bothered and I'm tired ;P Also decided to put some new releases in August at the bottom so that you can see what is coming out instead of just a whole post on it because they take AGES. So sorry for lots to read but I hope it's interesting and a break from just the reviews that I've been posting the last couple of months or so! I love you guys for sticking with me, if you're still here, you are officially AWESOME. And now, with those new releases! 

Rift  Debutantes  Foretold (The Demon Trappers, #4)
Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)  Pushing the Limits  Gods And Warriors (Gods And Warriors, #1)
  Losing Lila (Lila, #2)  Everneath

#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 …
