First Class Post

For review:

The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan - Goodreads / Amazon
I am so intrigued by this story! It sounds like a spin on the siren myth, and I'm really excited to read it!

ACID by Emma Pass - Goodreads / Amazon
A 2013 debut, and a dystopian novel! I am so excited to read this, it sounds amazing!

The Underdog by Markus Zusak - Goodreads / Amazon
I got sent a second copy by accident.

Monkey Wars by Richard Kurti - Goodreads / Amazon
This is different and intriguing, and I'm excited!

Geekhood: Mission Improbable by Andy Robb - Goodreads / Amazon
Eee, I am so excited! I loved the first book in the series, so I'm eager to get started to see where this book will go!


Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer - Goodreads / Amazon
I AM SO EXCITED! YES I AM! Eeeeee! Do I really need to say more?! It's SPIRIT!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon - Goodreads / Amazon
I've been looking forward to this one for quite a while! I believe it's New Adult? But New Adult urban fantasy/sci-fi. And it's home grown, as Shannon is from the UK! Really looking forward to reading it!


Luna by Julie Anne Peters - Goodreads / Amazon
She Loves You, She Loves You Not by Julie Anne Peters - Goodreads / Amazon
Ash by Malinda Lo - Goodreads / Amazon
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth - Goodreads / Amazon
Cameron Post is the one I borrowed. These are all for LGBTQ YA Month. Well, SLY,SHYN may or may not be read for the month, as I already have so many, and I don't want to read too many novels by the same author (and I'm already reading Grl2grl by Peters for the Month). Ash I've wanted for ages, and so picked it up on a whim. Cameron Post has been raved about, so I was super excited to see it was finally in. And Luna I'm so happy to finally have, as I've been struggling to get ahold of a copy that wasn't ridiculously expensive, and there don't seem to be many transgender novels that are available over here in shops. Was getting worried I wouldn't be able to cover that aspect of LGBTQ, so I'm now a happy bunny!

Deadlands by Lily Herne - Goodreads / Amazon
Chasing the Dark by Sam Hepburn - Goodreads / Amazon
