Synopsis from Goodreads:This is the story of how we became freaks. It's how a group of I's became a we.

When Class 10B got their flu shots, they expected some side effects. Maybe a sore arm. Maybe a headache. They definitely didn't expect to get telepathy. But suddenly they could hear what everyone was thinking. Their friends. Their teachers. Their parents. Now they all know that Tess has a crush on her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Some of them will thrive. Some of them will break. None of them will ever be the same.


My Thoughts:
I'd heard a lot of good things about this book from people who've read it on Twitter and Goodreads, so I was excited to get started and once I had I knew it wouldn't take me long…

June Wrap Up 2014

Hellooooo! It's crazy to think we are half way through this year already (which means only six months until Christmas)! Here's what I've been reading in June.


1. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green (reread) 2. Say Her Name by James Dawson 3. After Iris by Natasha Farrant 4. Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski 5. Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
I decided it was about time I reread TFIOS, since the film came out this month and I first read it two and a half years ago. Of course it was great and I also really loved the film, which I have now seen twice and plan to see again at some point soon. I've had the sequel to After Iris for a while now so thought it was high time to start the series - it was a fun and easy read that only took about a day to read which was great. Don't Even Think About It is strange but I really enjoyed it! I definitely would not like to have telepathy... Finally Murder Most Unladylike was really good - I lost my momentum …
