For review:

The Night Sky in My Head by Sarah Hammond - Goodreads / Amazon
This was a surprise review copy, but I'm intrigued. Might be interesting!

Mortal Chaos: Deep Oblivion by Matt Dickinson - Goodreads / Amazon
Another surprise review copy. I'm still yet to read the first book in the series, but I am so intrigued by the whole idea! Looking forward to trying it!

A Dog Called Homesless by Sarah Lean - Goodreads / Amazon
This book sounds like it's going to be so sad! But probably really touching and awesome! I'm really looking forward to it!

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass - Goodreads / Amazon
This sounds so exciting! A high fantasy inspired by Cinderella! I am so looking forward to reading it!

What's Up With Jody Barton? by Hayley Long - Goodreads / Amazon
Yet another surprise review copy. This one sounds interesting! Especially as we're not told anything on the actual book. Not really. Intrigued! I want to know what this twist is!

Metawars by Jeff Norton - Goodreads / Amazon
Again (!), another surprise review copy, but OH MY GOD! I am EXCITED to read this! Sounds in a similar vein to Insignia by S.J. Kincaid, which I LOVED! Can't wait to get stuck into this!

Serpent's Kiss by Melissa de la Cruz - Goodreads / Amazon
Guess what? Another surprise review copy. Lol. This one is for older YA readers. This is the second book in a series, but I'm really intrigued, it sounds like it might be really good! Magic and otherworldy creatures! Fun! Going to see if I can get hold of the first book, Witches of the East.

Gifted:

The Testament of Jessie Lamb by Jane Rogers - Goodreads / Amazon
Ooooh! It sounds amazing! Have already started reading this, and wow. WOW! Really makes you think!

The Diviners by Libba Bray - Goodreads / Amazon
I don't know if I'll like this one or not. The 1920's era doesn't appeal to me, really. I'll give it a go, but I don't know. I'm intrigued by the supernatural twist!

Angel Fire by L.A. Weatherly - Goodreads / Amazon
I loved the first book in this series, so I am SO excited to read the second! Looking forward to it!

Another Life by Keren David - Goodreads / Amazon
I'm yet to read the second book in this series, but I absolutely loved When I Was Joe, so I thought I would pick this up for after reading Almost True. Hopefully soon!

Thanks to Oxford University Press, HarperCollins Children's Books, Bloomsbury, Macmillan, Orchard and Sphere for the review copies!
