Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Books Read Since the Blogging Started

Hey! I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday for yonks so I thought I'd do one today, seeing as I have a lot of reviews coming up and I don't want to bore you with just reviews. So, here's today's topic:


Top Ten Favourite Books You've Read During the Lifespan Of Your Blog 

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: Never would I EVER have gone anywhere near a book that had the words 'French kiss' in the title had I not become a blogger. If I hadn't read all the glowing reviews from other bloggers I wouldn't have read it, and because I liked it so much it quickly became one of my favourites when I read it last year.

The Fault in Our Stars2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: This book is incredible. Seriously. I cried like a baby, and it's so beautiful and powerful and oh my goodness if you haven't read it, you really must. 

3. The Demon Trappers Series by Jana Oliver:  I adore this series! It's fast-paced, exciting, and so so readable :D Definitely one of my most favourite series ever and I can't wait to read everything else that Jana Oliver writes for teens. 
My reviews: Forsaken | Forbidden | Forgiven | Foretold

4. Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth: These books, I'm sure, probably appears on lots of people's lists. They're just so gripping and exciting and so, so good! Definite must reads for all fans of young adult fiction. 

5. The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa: The story-telling and world building in these books is amazing. These have been one of my favourite series for a very long time, and I'm sure they will be for a long time coming. 

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)6. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson: Creepy, gripping, and set in a London boarding school. What's not to love? This book is one of my favourites EVER, and you simply MUST read it. You must. 

7. Paranormalcy Series by Kiersten White: Again, another series you simply must read. It's snarky, sarcastic, and there's a sparkly pink taser involved. If that's not enough to tempt you, I don't know what is ;P  My reviews: Paranormalcy | Supernaturally | Endlessly

8. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly: I've included this because it's the best historical I have ever read. It's quite long but I read it extremely quickly - it's so readable and exciting and so different from everything I've ever read. If you're a historical geek, read it! And if you're not, read it anyway! 

9. Perfect Chemistry series by Simone Elkeles: I never thought I'd enjoy these. Never. But on insistence from other bloggers I picked up the first one and read it in a day. All three books are just feel-good, super hot romances, and they're so good for a day's reading. Definitely recommend! 

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour10. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson: This is my most recent favourite. I read it a couple of days ago, and ever since then it's been on my mind. The road-trip of a lifetime, awesome food, and good music - there's nothing not to like about this. Read it. You need to. My review will be up soon, I hope!

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting! Also, some of my reviews are a bit crappy and short because I wrote them back when I first started blogging... But the more recent ones, I like to think, are much better :)

  2. Every time I see Anna and the French Kiss I want to hide. I still haven't read (but definitely will) and really feel like I'm the last one. But the reason you give is why I love blogging so much! I would never have read Pushing the Limits and it's my favorite book now!

  5. Yay, you're the first person I've seen with a few books in common between our lists! Anna and the French Kiss and Amy and Roger's Epic Detour are two of my favourite books EVER. Not enough people have read Amy and Roger, but I tell everyone who will listen lol. I also love Paranormalcy, The Name of the Star, and The Iron King (the only one of the Iron Fey I've read so far). Awesome list!

    Love your blog (the header is amazing)...new follower. :-)

  7. A lot of the books you've listed I still haven't read yet. I need to get to Anna and the French Kiss and The Fault in our Stars very badly since I've heard an endless amount of good things about them.

#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

Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
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 …
