First Class Post - because this post is first class!
Skylark by Meagan Spooner - Goodreads / Amazon
This is a 2013 YA dystopian UK debut. Need I say much more? I am really intrigued!
Shadows by Paula Weston - Goodreads / Amazon
I am intrigued by this urban fantasy, but also feel it sounds a little like a few others out there. I don't know, maybe reading too many angel books? Still, it could be really good! If you've read it and loved it, please let me know!
Hidden by Marianne Curely - Goodreads / Amazon
So maybe I'm lying, because this angel book sounds awesome! Really looking forward to it! And Curely's first book since recovering from caner, which I think is awesome!
Ferryman by Claire McFall - Goodreads / Amazon
I am terribly excited for this 2013 YA debut! It sounds like it'll be an amazing story! Maybe bittersweet?
The Day I Met Suzie by Chris Higgins - Goodreads / Amazon
This sounds really intriguing! I love the fact that it's a story told to a Samaritan over the phone. I'm really looking forward to finding out what happens. I don't like the sound of this Susie!
Heart Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne - Goodreads / Amazon
This book has been raved about, so I'm super excited to read it! This is more a gift than a review copy - an early Christmas pressie from the publisher!
Geek Girl by Holly Smale - Goodreads / Amazon
Another 2013 YA debut that I'm looking forward to! It sounds so good! (Has anyone else noticed the weirdness around the girl's mouth? No shading/shadow beneath her bottom lip! Looks odd! Hope it's just the proof cover and not on the finished cover too.)
Sister Assassin by Kiersten White - Goodreads / Amazon
This sounds AMAZING! I am so excited to read it! Can you imagine how good it's going to be? Eee!
CODA by Emma Trevayne - Goodreads / Amazon
This 2013 YA debut is one I will be reading for LGBTQ YA Month and it sounds AWESOME! A dystopian New York where the only music allowed is the kind mind-altering, addictive kind? A boy who has an underground band? A friend who mysteriously overdoses from said music? This all makes me one hell of an excited Jo! :D
Code by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs - Goodreads / Amazon
This is an unsolicited review copy, the third in a series I haven't read nor have any interest in, so I won't be reading this one either.
The Vincent Boys: New and Uncensored by Abbi Glines - Goodreads / Amazon
I bought this eBook on a whim. I really, really want to read this, but I would prefer it in paperback, so I was going to wait until it is published as such next year. But the eBook was 99p and promised extra content. So bought. But I think I'll still want to get my hands on the paperback next year. BUT EEE, HOW GOOD DOES THIS SOUND?! I am loving the whole New Adult idea!
Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky - Goodreads / Amazon
This sounds sooo good! I heard the sequel is coming out soon, so I thought I'd buy myself a copy to catch up. Looking forward to reading it!

The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen - Goodreads / Amazon
Darkness Falls by Jessica Sorensen - Goodreads / Amazon
These two books are the first books in separate YA urban fantasy series. They're self-published, but I recently read a post on Narratively Speaking about self-published novels which made me think, and as they were free, I decided to give them a go.
Thank you to RHCP, Orion Children's Books, Bloomsbury, Templar, Hodder Children's Books, Headline, HarperCollin's Children's Books, Perseus Books, and Young Arrow for the review copies.
