Journey's End by RC Sherriff (UK Hardback)
Yay... I actually bought a book this week, but for once I'm not excited about it! ;) This is for my English GCSE, but it's a book I got this week so I thought I'd share it because I only got one other, which is good for my TBR pile :D 


Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (US Hardback)
I swapped this using UK Swap Shop on Goodreads, and it's SO pretty and shiny! :D Can't wait to read it, I loved the first one (though I need a reminder what happened...) so this should be great :) 

That's what I got this week, what did you get? Leave a link in the comments!


  1. I wasn't a huge fan of Raised by Wolves, but I can't wait to see what you think of Trials by Fire. I'm trying to decide whether I want to read it or not! :D

In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.
