February 2014

Another month is over - this year is going so quickly already! I've managed to read lots of books this month, however the reviewing has slowed down significantly... Ahh well, it seems you cannot have everything! Now, onto the books!

The Geography of You and Me  Echo Boy  The Blood List

1. Top Girls by Caryl Churchill
2. The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
3. Double Crossed by Ally Carter
4. Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
5. Echo Boy by Matt Haig
6. Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter
7. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
8. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
9. The Blood List by Sarah Naughton

Top Girls and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde were read for school, and while I absolutely despise Top Girls and loathe it with every sense of my being, it's for coursework so I have to suffer through it. I was pleasantly surprised by Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde though, it's actually a good read. As you can probably tell I've read a lot of Ally Carter - I've caught up with the Heist Society series and GAH her books are SO GOOD MAN. I love them and am so sad that there are no more for a while now. Echo Boy by Matt Haig was a really fun read - a hundred miles an hour non stop futuristic thriller - I loved it. The Blood List by Sarah Naughton was really great too - I think Sarah's a really underrated author so definitely check her books out!

My favourite book of the month though, by far, was FANGIRL!

Fangirl

It's SO GOOD and I thought I wouldn't like it but I loved it and now I can't stop recommending it to everyone I know. You can read my review here if you still need convincing!

This month's posts:

REVIEW: Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
REVIEW: How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
REVIEW: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

New books this month:



I actually bought lots of books this month for once! I bought Fangirl, Banished, Jessie Hearts NYC, and both Julie Kagawa books (The Iron Legends and The Iron Traitor). I'm reading Banished at the moment and it's really good so definitely look out for that in shops! I've heard really great things about both Maggot Moon and Every Day so I couldn't pass them up when I found them on the shelves at the library. The rest of these books were received for review, so thank you to Simon and Schuster Children's Books, Puffin, Hot Key Books, Hodder & Stoughton and Chicken House for all of these! Particularly looking forward to Where The Rock Splits The Sky and Sleuth or Dare

I'm looking forward to reading in March...

Dandelion Clocks  Zom-B Gladiator (Zom-B, #6)  How to Love

And finally here are some new releases to look forward to in March!

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
