Easter Holidays TBR

I'm back from uni for the Easter holidays so I thought I would share what I'll be reading over the break.



I'm currently reading...

OBSIDIO by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I've been excited for this for sooo long. I preordered it back in April and it's finally here! I absolutely love this series; it's one of my favourites and I'll be writing a fuller post about it when I've finished Obsidio so keep an eye out for that. But if you haven't read these yet then I really recommend you get on it!



After this I shall be reading (in no particular order)...

IN PARIS WITH YOU by Clementine Beauvais

I read Clementine's first book Piglettes over the summer and absolutely loved it so I can't wait to read this new one! It's a verse novel set in Paris, when two people meet again after ten years apart and revive their relationship. I haven't read a verse novel in a long time and who can turn down a Parisian romance?! 


GOODBYE PERFECT by Sara Barnard
Sara Barnard is an author on my auto-buy list and so I had to get this as soon as it came out... And then I got distracted by other books and never got to reading it! I've heard good things from lots of people, and I know Sara's writing is great so I can't wait to finally get around to reading it. Also isn't it pretty! 



SCYTHE by Neal Schusterman 
I don't know a lot about this book but it sounds very interesting! Two teenagers have to train to be Scythes, people who take others' lives as population control in a world where death has been conquered. It's a book club book this month and a good friend of mine loved it so I'm looking forward to giving it a go! 




MORE THAN WE CAN TELL by Brigid Kemmerer
I'd picked this one up to buy in Waterstones so many times so I finally took the plunge and purchased it. I'm so excited to read it, it sounds really interesting and I've been meaning to try something by Brigid for a while now. 






THE CHILDREN OF CASTLE ROCK by Natasha Farrant
I love a good middle grade novel and so I'm very excited for this one! It's a boarding school adventure which is right up my street. It's published this month by Faber and Faber and so I'll try to get to it very soon. Also, isn't the proof gorgeous?!

Have you read any of these? I know it's ambitious to want to read all of these in two weeks (especially when I also have a dissertation to write...) but I'm going to give it a go! Which should I start with? 

Also I'm playing around with my blog design as I'm trying to relaunch so please bear with and do let me know what you like/what you don't!

  1. I am super curious about Scythe - I feel like EVERYONE is talking about it, and how amazing it is. I hope you enjoy it. Have a good break!

*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 :)

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
