Letterbox Love #1

Hello! Seeing as I haven't done an In My Mailbox in such a long time, I thought I'd do one again but switch over to the UK version - Letterbox Love, hosted by Lyndsey at Narratively Speaking. Not because I don't like IMM because of what happened agess ago, but I just thought that I should probably do the UK version now seeing as I'm a UK blogger... ;P


I have absolutely loads to show you, because I haven't done one for ages. Hopefully after this they'll be semi-regular, hopefully at least once a month, but we'll see. So this is for THE LAST FEW MONTHS. Sorry for caps lock, but I always get at least one person in the comments asking how I got so much in one week... ;)

Woah. All finished now. This is everything I received since the beginning of June. I have a question: Do you find this post braggy? I'm aware I have a received a lot of books recently, and I definitely don't want you guys to think I'm showing off or being braggy: I just haven't shown you what I've got for ages... And I like doing book hauls because I like to give books that I'm not going to get around to reading soon or ones that I miss out at least a little bit of a mention before their reviews... And I love looking at other people's! So let me know in the comments what you think of these posts and hopefully I can do them more regularly in the future so it won't be such a chore to read through next time! 

Thanks to Cicely, Viv, Jim, MIRA Ink, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Chicken House, Hodder and Stoughon, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Strange Chemistry, Bloomsbury and Egmont for all my books these last couple of months! You are all seriously awesome! :D

#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 …

Book Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel
Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
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 …
