First Class Post (63) & Weekly Recap

First Class Post - because this post is first class!

First Class Post

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

For review:

The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith - I was looking forward to reading this - sounds like a real sweet story - until I read Cynthia's review over on Jellyfish Reads. A little bit put off now :/ We'll see, I guess.

Shut Out by Kody Keplinger - REALLY looking forward to this one! Yet another for SiTL Month! It's going to be an awesome event, I'm telling you!

NetGalley:

No One Needs to Know by Amanda Grace - Really looking forward to this! Sounds like a sad but beautiful LGBTQ story. Hope I love it!

Thank you to Headline via Bookbridgr, Hachette Children's Books, and Flux via NetGalley for the review copies.

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

On the blog:

Girls Having Adventures - I wrote my own response to Caitlin Moran's claims that there are no sexy adventures for girls.

Elsewhere:

Nina of Death, Books and Tea wrote a great post against Michael Gove's decision to remove non-British books from the GCSE syllabus.

MHAM

Also, it's Mental Health Awareness Month over on Uncorked Thoughts and Blog of Erised! I will be reading and reviewing YA novels that look at mental health throughout June, so look out for my posts, and do check out the awesomenes on both their blogs!
