First Class Post

For review:

Jepp, Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh - Goodreads / Amazon
Oh my gosh, doesn't this book just sound awesome?! I haven't even started reading it yet, and I'm already in love with the idea! I believe it may make me cry.

The Disappeared by C.J. Harper - Goodreads / Amazon
This is a 2013 UKYA debut, and it sounds SO good! Another awesome dystopian novel to read! :D

Burning Bright by Sophie McKenzie - Goodreads / Amazon
This is the sequel to Falling Fast, though I've yet to read it. This one looks like it might be quite Wintery, so I think I'm going to try and get to Falling Fast soon, so I have an awesome almost Christmassy read to follow!

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly - Goodreads / Amazon
This was recommended to me by someone at work, which I thought was quite cool! It sounds awesome, and I'm looking forward to giving it a go!

Don't Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble - Goodreads / Amazon
This is for my LGBTQ YA Month. Not only was this book recommended to me by both Sarah of Saz101 and brilliant author Brigid Kemmerer, this book was already on my radar as J.H. will be contributing to my Month! It sounds amazing! Thanks to J.H. for sending me a signed copy to review! Incidentally, the title makes me think of Olly Murs :)

Thank you to Hot Key Books, Simon and Schuster Children's Books, Hodder and Stoughton and J.H. Trumble for the review copies.


  1. The Book of Lost Things sound AMAZING! Great haul this week!

    1. It does, doesn't it? I'm so looking forward to reading it! :)

  2. Never heard of those books which only means i'm adding new ones to my TBR! :O
    The Book of Lost Things has the perfect title and cover!

    Enjoy! :D
    My new books: Newbies

    1. Thank you! So glad more are being added to your TBR pile! :) Really looking forward to reading The Book of Lost Things, it sounds so good!

  3. Looking at these posts is SO bad for me...they'll find my crushed body buried beneath my mammoth TBR pile.

    1. Haha, I was only talking about that with my Mum yesterday. My Nan is staying over, so she has my bed, and I'm on the airbed right next to my TBR pile. She was worried they would fall on me in the night. But also said that it would be a fitting death, lol.

  4. I had NEVER heard of Jepp, Who Defied the Stars before, but it sounds AMAZING. AND JO. JOOOOOO. YOU HAVE DON'T LET ME GO! I hope you love it so so SOO much ♥

    1. IT does, doesn't it? I am so looking forward to reading it! I have a feeling it may break my heart a little!
      YES! I HAVE DON'T LET ME GO! :D I'm sure I will love it! It does sound incredible! :) Thanks for the rec.

  5. OOOOOH. I won a book pack the other day that continues Jepp, Who Defied the Stars. So excited to receive it!! It sounds incredible and if you love it, I know your review is going to be amazing :D

    I'm super keen on hearing your thoughts for The Disappeared too. I LOVE ME SOME DYSTOPIAN! And damn, Brigid and Sarah are really selling Don't Let Me Go. Obviously it's a must read!

    Enjoy reading these, Jo!

    1. I am so looking forward to reading Jepp, it sounds so good!

      The Disappeared sounds so good! Won't be reading til next year though as it's a debut. Looking forward to it! And Don't Let Me Go! SO EXCITED! :D

      Thank you, Brodie!
