July 2014

Hello! School's out and summer's started, so I have lots of time for reading ahead of me! Here's what I've been reading in July:

Heart-Shaped Bruise  Boys Don't Knit  Bella's Reading...

1. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick
3. Trouble by Non Pratt
4. Heart Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne
5. Boys Don't Knit by TS Easton
6. Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith (DNF)
7. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

I read quite a lot this month (especially considering I was on a summer camp for a week and didn't have much chance to read!) I started off the month with books by Sarra Manning, Non Pratt and Tanya Byrne so that I could get them signed at YALC, which was AWESOME. They were all really good and I recommend them completely! I then read Boys Don't Knit, continuing with reading UKYA (as most of the YALC authors were UKYA) which was awesome (it's about knitting - what's not to love?) and really funny, and I can't wait to read the sequel in August! I was super excited for Grasshopper Jungle, but unfortunately it bored me and also I didn't really like the writing style or voice, and I didn't care for the main character, Austin. I got about half way through - I might go back to it at some point but I probably won't, sadly! I decided then to read Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen because I love her, and I was sure she wouldn't let me down like GJ did! Of course, it was really good and although it wasn't my favourite Austen, it was witty and fun and just brilliant.

Book of the month...


I just love the Pride and Prejudice story, and this companion to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, does not disappoint! I'll be reviewing it later this month so look out for that!

This month's posts...

REVIEW: Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski
REVIEW: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
REVIEW: The Worst Girlfriend In The World by Sarra Manning

New books this month...


I got quite a lot of books this month - some for review, some I bought, some gifted and some borrowed! I bought Vivian Versus America, The Coldest Girl In Coldtown and The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting at YALC and can't wait for any of them, and I borrowed The Iron Trial from Cicely (you can check out her awesome blog here) and it looks amazeballs, so thank you Cicely!. Also, a huge thank you to Hodder, Simon and Schuster, Faber & Faber and Penguin for my review books this month - especially for Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead which I am DESPERATE to read because I love the Bloodlines series so much, and for Winterkill by Kate A Boorman, because it looks super interesting. Thanks to Jim and Nina for Curtsies and Conspiracies, and Grasshopper Jungle and Purity too! :D 

Here are some of the awesome titles coming out in August:

The Illusionists (Fearsome Dreamer, #2)  An English Boy in New York (Boys Don't Knit, #2)  The Girl Who Walked On Air
Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie  Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)  Let's Get Lost

      And nope, I haven't read Let's Get Lost yet! I think I'll read it next though, since I'm on a road trip now and it would be the best time to read it, haha! :D

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
