First Class Post

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

For review:

My Mummy Says by Justine Smith and Angie Stevens - This is a cute looking board book. Illustrations look cute! (Not on Goodreads.)

The Wilderness by C. J. Harper - Unsolicited and I haven't yet read the first one, but it did sound awesome! Hopefully I'll enjoy the first, and can happily dive into the second.

Other Bound by Corinne Duyvis - I am so intrigued by this book! Mixing up our normal world with a sci-fi one! So clever! I love the idea of "being" someone else in your sleep. I'm sure it's going to bring up some awesome gender themes! And there are LGBTQ characters in it too. Really looking forward to this debut!

Losing It, edited by Keith Gray - I'm going to be reading this for SiTL Month II! I've wanted to read this book for ages, so I'm so excited to get the chance to now! :)

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer - The UK edition!!! SO EXCITED that this book is FINALLY being published here! SO AWESOME! Read my review here.

ttyl by Lauren Myracle / ttfn by Lauren Myracle / l8r, g8r by Lauren Myracle - Really excited to read this series!


Tape by Steven Camden  - I AM SO EXCITED TO HAVE THIS! It looks amazing! If I understand the description properly, it reminds me of The Lake House! (Not pictured.)


Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - I received a gift card from work for a blog post I wrote, so I bought this! I've seen so many rave reviews for this book, I thought it was about time I read it myself.

Thank you to Pan Macmillan, Simon and Schuster Children's Books, Abrams and Chronicle, Anderson Press, Much-in-Little, and HarperCollin's Children's Books via NetGalley for the review copies.


Inspired by Faye of A Daydreamer's Thoughts's Weekly Highlights, here is a recap of my posts over the last week, and anything else I found interesting.

No reviews this week, but a lot of other exciting things have been happening!

Books read:

I read 2 books this week. I finished Trouble by Non Pratt - which is amazing - but I'm saving my review of Sex in Teen Lit Month II. I also read Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor, which is absolutely incredible! Oh my god, you have no idea! Review will come shortly, sometime over the next few days.

  1. Thirteen Reasons Why is wonderful. I'm really excited to read Tape and I'm definitely intrigued by Storm - mostly because of how excited you are about it!

    1. So looking forward to Thirteen Reasons Why! Tape sounds so, so good! STORM IS AWESOME! I soooo hope you love it, if/when you read it! It's amazing!

  2. What a great haul! I'd quite like to read Lauren Myracle's series but I feel like it could either be really good or really bad! Hope that it's the former ;) Enjoy all your books :)

    1. Thanks! I've wanted to read the ttyl series for ages now, so I'm glad I get the chance. I just hope it's not over the top silly school-girly, if you know what I mean. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Storm! I'm a massive fan of that series. Soooo fantastic! I need Sacrifice now.
    I really enjoyed Thirteen Reasons Why when I read it a few years ago. Hope you do as well.
    Great haul!
    Happy reading!
