Letterbox Love #2



So I haven't done a Letterbox Love or IMM or book haul or anything for months now, and I used to love these posts so I thought I'd start them up again, especially as I've got some awesome books these last couple of weeks! I've only included the books I've received in 2013 and for Christmas, because I couldn't remember what I got before... :P


Apologies for the books not being in the centre of the picture. If that bothers you. It bothers me :P

BOUGHT

Night School: Legacy by CJ Daugherty
I absolutely love this series! This one was brilliant, my review's coming soon.
How to Save A Life by Sara Zarr (Not pictured; ebook)
Only 99p in the Kindle sale - looking forward to this one as I've only heard good things!

GIFTED

Ingenue by Jillian Larkin
This was from my parents for Christmas. My only book (unless you include the Doctor Who 2013 annual :P) but it doesn't matter because I'm sure it'll be awesome! Absolutely adored the first one so can't wait to read this!


RECEIVED FOR REVIEW

Dead Romantic by CJ Skuse (Chicken House Books)
Cannot wait for this one! Looks awesome :D Out in February.

Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black (Bloomsbury Children's)
The cover for this one is absolutely gorgeous! It sounds really good too, so I'm looking forward tor reading this! Out February.

Just One Day by Gayle Forman (Random House Children's)
I read and loved If I Stay and Where She Went a year or two ago, so I'm looking forward to reading this romance in Paris! This one's already released.

The Hanged Man Rises by Sarah Naughton (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)
I asked for this one because it sounded good, and completely different to anything else I've really read before! It's nice and short so I might read this one in the week before my January exams, so I can read but not be too distracted because it's not too long! Out February.

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)
AGH I am SO excited for this one! The cover's gorgeous, as the first one was, and I just can't wait to read more about Mara and Noah... They're great! I think I'll read it as a reward after my January exams. Out February.

Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans (Usborne)
I actually was lucky enough to attend the launch party for this book, and met Lenore herself. She was super awesome and the event was great and I'm reading this now and even though I'm only on Chapter 2 I really like it so far :) Out 15th January.

Thanks to Lynsey at Narratively Speaking for hosting Letterbox Love! Let me know in the comments what you've received this week, or leave me a link to your post if you've got one :)

#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 …
