For review:

The Double-Edged Sword by Sarah Silverwood - Orion
This one sounds exciting! And we all know how much I love fantasy!

The Weirdstone of Brisingamen by Alan Garner - HarperCollins
I've been wanting to read this book for a while! I remember being told about it by my teacher in Writing for Children. Apparently Alan Garner is the granddaddy of young fantasy. Really looking forward to it.

Entangled by Cat Clarke - Quercus
I am so excited to read this! Cat is a lovely lady I had the good fortune to meet at the Book Bloggers Meet Up, and her book sounds amazing! So looking forward to it!

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly - Bloomsbury
I am so intrigued by this novel! It sounds brilliant; I love the idea of two stories in one book, in different time periods, yet relating to each other. I can't wait to read it! And it also has one of those cool ribbon bookmarks attached! I love it!

A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly - Bloomsbury
Received to give me a taste of Donnelly's writing before reading her next novel, Revolution. I'm really excited to read this, it sounds so good!

You Against Me by Jenny Downham - Random House Children's Books
I've heard such brilliant things about Before I Die (which I'm still yet to read but really want to), so I'm thrilled to have received this! It sounds brilliant, I can't wait to read it!

Pretty happy at this end! :)
