First Class Post

For review:

Wool by Hugh Howey - Goodreads / Amazon
This is an unsolicited review copy, and one I doubt I'll be reading as I simplu have too many books in the house and can't be holding on to those I'm unsure about. (Seriously, my room is currently a health and safety hazard.)

Dare You To by Katie McGarry - Goodreads / Amazon
This is from NetGalley. I absolutely loved Pushing the Limits, so I'm SO excited to have a galley of Dare To You! Really looking forward to reading it!

When Loves Come to Town by Tom Lennon - Goodreads / Amazon
Another one from NetGalley. This will be read for LGBTQ YA Month. Looking forward to giving this a read! It's a re-release of a book published in 1993, and it's set in Dublin, Ireland, which is awesome! (Amazon link goes to the old edition. The newer, American one isn't up there.)

Burning for Revenge by John Marsden - Goodreads / Amazon
This is another unsolicited review copy, and the fifth in the series. I won't be reading it.

The Trouble With Fate by Leigh Evans - Goodreads / Amazon
Yet another unsolicted review copy, but one that actually sounds like my cup of tea. Really hope I do get round tot his one, I'm really intrigued! This is also a 2013 YA debut!

Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan - Goodreads / Amazon
I am SO excited to read this! The other book in the Love Hurts Blog Tour I took part in. Have read Easy, and now to read Reason to Breathe! Loving having more NA to read!

The Culling by Steven Dos Santos - Goodreads / Amazon
Again, another from NetGalley. Ever since hearing about The Culling on Eleusinian Myseries, I have been really excited about this book, and now I have it! One I'm going to try to read soonish and see if it fits for LGBTQ YA Month. Sound so good!

The Hanged Man Rises by Sarah Naughton - Goodreads / Amazon
2013 YA debut! Looking forward to reading this, I am so intrigued!

After Tomorrow by Gillian Cross - Amazon
Smuggler's Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen - Goodreads / Amazon
Unsolicited review copies. Not my cup of tea so won't be reading. (No Goodreads link of After Tomorrow as it's not up yet.)

The Evoluntion of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - Goodreads / Amazon
Everbound by Brodi Ashton - Goodreads / Amazon
I still haven't read the first books in these series, but they both sound so good and I've heard great things about them! So I'm glad to have the second books to dive into after reading the first ones.

Waiting for Gonzo by Dave Cousins - Goodreads / Amazon
Ishmael and the Hopes of Steel by Michael Gerard Bauer - Goodreads / Amazon
Deceit by Deborah White - Goodreads / Amazon
Swordspell by C.J. Busby - Goodreads / Amazon
Beautiful Creatures: Official Illustrated Movie Companion by Mark Cotta Vaz - Goodreads / Amazon
More unsolicited review copies - though there was a misunderstand regarding the Beautiful Creatures book. I won't be reading these.


The Seven Devils by Sara Danvers - Goodreads / Amazon
This is an ebook offered for free on Amazon. It sounds intriguing! A self-published NA novel. Looking ofrward to giving it a go!

Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle - Goodreads / Amazon
Another ebook offered free on Amazon. A cool urban fantasy thriller! Also looking forward to trying this.

Thank you to Century, Mira Ink via NetGalley, Albert Whitman & Co via NetGalley, Quercus, Tor, Penguin, Flux via NetGalley, Simon and Schuster Children's Books, OUP, Templar, and Penguin for the review copies!


  1. I'm intrigued by Reason to Breathe - looking forward to seeing what you think of it!

    1. Thanks! It's pretty good so far, though I'm not that far in. It's going to be a hard one, I think :)

  2. Oh Everbound! I can't wait to get my hands on Everbound. I hope you get a chance to read it and enjoy it :)

    1. I will read it at some point, just after I've read Everneath :) It sounds like such a good series! :)

  3. Great haul this week, I still need to read Everbound. Enjoy all your fantastic books.

    Check out my haul

    1. Thank you! :) I need to read Everneath first! There are just too many books!

  4. There's quite the collection of books there! I read Reason to Breathe over the last few days. I'm still making up my mind about what I thought of it. Shame about Waiting For Gonzo, I think that's one I'd really like to read!

    1. Oh, I'm enjoying Reason to Breathe so far! There is the odd sentence that sounds a little young, but I think I'll like it over all. At least I hope so! :) Waiting for Gonzo just sounds a little too young for my liking, unfortunately!
