March and April 2014 Wrap Up

I can't believe it's May already! This year is going so fast... Anyway! Here's my wrap up for March and April!

March:

Banished (The Blackhart Legacy, #1)  Dandelion Clocks  Zom-B Gladiator (Zom-B, #6)

1. Banished by Liz De Jager
2. Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner
3. Dandelion Clocks by Rebecca Westcott
4. Zom-B Gladiator by Darren Shan

April:

More Than This  Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2)  Divergent (Divergent, #1)

1. More Than This by Patrick Ness
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth
4. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I've read a mix of stuff these last two months and I actually really enjoyed each book that I read! Harry Potter and the two Divergent books were rereads, and I really enjoyed returning to both series - I don't reread much so it's been really great. Banished was excellent, as expected (I might review it at some point - I have got half a review typed up somewhere so I'll finish that hopefully soon!). I wasn't sure what to expect from Maggot Moon and although it was really weird I really enjoyed it. Zom-B Gladiator was another great instalment of the Zom-B series, and I can't wait for more!

I don't really have a favourite book since they were all so great! I can't choose, so I won't ;)

New books this month:

Sorry for the super messy table in the background... :P 

I only got two physical books in the last two months - so huge thanks to Hot Key Books for Love Letters to the Dead and to Hodder & Stoughton for The Edge of the Water! Can't wait to read Love Letters and I haven't read the first book to The Edge of the Water so I'll see about getting myself a copy of that. 

I also got a few books from NetGalley (I couldn't help myself...) which I'm super excited about! 


Sorry for the small picture! The books are:

Between The Lives by Jessica Shirvington
Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski
Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
Smart by Kim Slater
The Rain by Virginia Bergin

Thanks to Macmillan, Orchard Books and Random House for these titles! 

Finally here are some books that are coming out in the UK in May to look forward to! 

The Bubble Wrap Boy  The Worst Girlfriend in the World  The Glass Bird Girl
We Were Liars  Out of Control  City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Title: The Perks of Being a Wallflower  Author: Stephen Chbosky
Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
