First Class Post

For review:

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver - Goodreads / Amazon
I now have an awesome paperback copy! Hurrah! I have already read Pandemonium of course, and you can read my review here, but now I have the pretty cover! :D (There doesn't seem to be a page on Goodreads for the paperback, so it links to the hardback)

I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore - Goodreads / Amazon
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore - Goodreads / Amazon
The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore - Goodreads / Amazon
I have been sent the whole series! I requested the first two in paperback when offered the third, because the hardbacks I had were just massive! Not just in length, but general size! They were not bag friendly. So now I have nice small paperbacks. I am so excited by this series! Really looking forward to reading them!

Fathom by Merrie Destefano - Goodreads
This is an eBook review copy, so not pictured. I very rarely review books by indie authors, but not only has Destefano been published by HarperVoyager (I kind of love them), but she also provided me with the first chapter to read before accepting, and ooooh, I am so intrigued! A mother who killed her daughter then jumped off a cliff, with the older daughter left behind. Then dodgy things start once she's held under water... creepy and intriguing!

And Actually... by Denise Deegan - Goodreads / Amazon
I absolutely loved the first book in this series, and now I have the next two! Whoop! And on receiving this book, I discovered I was quoted in it! You can see my quote here, at the bottom.

Betrayal by Gregg Olsen - Goodreads / Amazon
An unsolicited review copy, but one that sounds so intriguing! Based on the Amanda Knox case! I haven't read the first book, though, so I'm waiting to get my hands on that before reading.


Road to Nowhere by Christopher Pike - Goodreads / Amazon
After posting on this blog asking for help finding a book a school friend read over ten years back, Road to Nowhere was suggested as the book it could be, and I think it is! Really looking forward to reading it and possibly being a little spooked!

Thank you to Hodder and Stoughton, Puffin, Merrie Destefano, Hachette Ireland, and Splinter for the review copies.


  1. I remember reading Road to Nowhere when I was a teenager and being very creeped out by it as well! :-)

    1. Oh, awesome! I'm really looking forward to reading it! :)

  2. Yay for the Lorien Legacies series!! I admit, I wasn't totally won over by IANF, it was 'okay' from what I remember, but PoS was BRILLIANT and got me hooked on the series :) Need to get my hands on The Rise of Nine asap!!

    Oooh very intrigued by your thoughts of Fathom! Definitely creepy stuff. Brodie like creepy :D

    Enjoy your fab haul, Jo!!

    1. Oh, really? Well, it's great to hear you loved PoS! I'm looking forward to giving this series a go! It does sound so good!

      Fathom sounds awesome, doesn't it? Really excited to read it! :D

      Thanks, Brodie! :)

  3. Great books! I loved the first two of the Pittacus Lore series, cant wait to read The Rise of Nine! I really enjoyed the first in the Envy series by Gregg Olsen, hope you enjoy all of these!

    1. Thank you! Really looking forward to trying Pittacus Lore's novels, and Envy and Betrayal sound so intriguing!
