For review:

Finding Sky by Joss Stirling - Oxford University Press
Oh my god, how amazing does this book sound?! The fantasy/paranormal fan in me is dancing around like a child! I am beyond excited to read it, I really can't wait.

Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey - Bloomsbury
I've still yet to read Blood Feud, but I'm looking forward to it! I loved My Love Lies Bleeding, so it's great that I'll be able to read both the next two one after the other now!

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick - Simon & Schuster
A nice shiny hardback! I absolutely loved this book, and you can read my review on Tuesday! It's great to have such a cool hardback now too! :)


Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Bought to show my support. Read my support post here. Really looking forward to reading it!

I know it's not book related, but The Big Bang Theory series three also arrived, and I am soooo happy! This show is hilarious, and I love it! I'm going to get my geek on! :)

Pretty happy :)


  1. I REALLY enjoyed Finding Sky as it added something a little different to what I've been reading in the YA Paranormal genre, hope you like it too! I've reviewed it together with Crescendo which whilst I enjoyed it, Nora got on my nerves a little bit.

    I'm thinking I'm going to have to get Speak out to read pretty soon too and will order Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Hockler to show my support for not banning books.

    Let me know how you like Finding Sky ;)

  2. You got some nice books this week. I am really looking forward to Out for Blood. I haven't heard anything about Finding Sky and will be watching for your review. My mailbox is here. Happy reading!

  3. Lynsey - Ohh, that's great to hear! I'll have to pick up Finding Sky soon. It sounds amazing!
    Nora got on my nerves a bit too, but I still loved it! :)
    Twently Boy Summer is by Sarah Ockler - no H! I already have a copy, fortunately! I'm going to be reading it for my Death and Bereavement in Teen Lit Month :)
    Will definitely let you know what I think of FS! :)

    Kathy - Thanks! :) I'm looking forward to both Out for Blood and Finding Sky! They both sound awesome! :)
