For review:

Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando - A finished paperback copy! I'm intrigued by this novel. I think it'll be a fun contemporary read.

The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman and Eddie Campbell - After seeing Cynthia of Jellyfish Reads' review of this, I thought I would give it a go. It's a bit different, and I've not yet read anything by Neil Gaiman. Think it's probably about time I fixed that.

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson - Eee! I am so excited for this novel! I loved Morgan Matson's previous two novels, Amy & Roger's Epic Detour and Last Chance Summer, so I'm realy hoping I love this one! It does sound amazing! I'll probably read this soon.

Chorus by Emma Trevayne - Eee, another exciting book! I absolutely LOVED Coda, so I'm super excited to read how the duology ends! Looking forward to diving back into this world! :D


Playing Tyler by T. L. Costa - I won this from Blog of Erised as part of MHAM in the Name that Quote game. I'm intrigued by this book! :) Thanks, Ula!

Thank you to Hodder, Headline via Bookbridgr, Simon and Schuster Children's Books, and Running Press Kids 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.



I reviewed one book for MHAM this week. When Mr Dog Bites by Brian Conaghan is a fantastic story about a boy with Tourette's Syndrome. I really recommend it.

The Fault in Our Stars Movie

I also posted a movie review of The Fault in Our Stars after getting watch an early screening of it last week. SO! GOOD!


My posts on here might be sporadic from now on. Here's why.


Sadly, Angry Robot's YA imprint Strange Chemistry, along with Exhibit A, they're crime and mystery imprint, are no more.
