First Class Post

Check out Showcase Sunday over on Books, Bisuits and Tea.

For review:

Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi - The third and final book in the Through the Ever Night series! I am so excited to see how it ends! :D

Amy and Matthew by Cammie McGovern - This book sounds awesome! I think it's going to be real moving and uplifting! Really looking forward to it. And it's a debut novel!

Deeper by Robin York - I'll be reviewing this for a blog tour in March. It sounds so good! Really, really looking forward to reading it!

Just One Day by Gayle Forman - This book sounds amazing, and I've heard awesome things about it, so I'm really excited to give it a go.

I Love Mum by Joanna Walsh and Judi Abbot and Meet the Parents by Peter Bently and Sara Ogilvie - As my best mate has a wee baby on the way (!!!), I've been taking an interest in picture books for future reference, so I'm going to be reviewing picture books occasionally. These two just sounded cute :)

Thank you to Atom, Macmillan's Children's Books, Piatkus, RHCP and Simon and Schuster's Children's Books for the review copies.

Inspired by Faye of A Daydreamer's Thoughts's Weekly Highlights, here are some of my posts from the past week:

Reviews:

No Matter What by Debi Gliori - I have previously read this book, and was reminded of it during the week. Thought I'd review it as I'd remembered it. Sweet little story!

Review Copy Cleanup 2014

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin Secret by Brigid Kemmerer

So in the first week of 2014's Review Copy Cleanup, I've read Fangirl by Rainbow RowellGolden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin and Secret by Brigid Kemmerer. All are fantastic novels! Fangirl is a beautiful and sweet contempory novel with a dash of romance, whereas Golden Boy is a powerful and thought-provoking novel about an intersex teen. And Secret is the fourth novel in the Elemental series, which automatically makes it awesome. I'd really recommend all three. Reading quicker than I expected to, so I might get a few more books read this month than I imagined, which is great!

Other posts:

Desperately Seeking Romance - I've been wanting to read more moving adult romance and "chick-lit", so if you have any recommendations, please do check out the post and leave a comment! Thank you! :)
