New Books
These months I've done I've been fairly good at avoiding purchasing new books - being eternally busy at university has helped. However last weekend I took a trip to Waterstones Deansgate for the UKYA event with the intention to buy only Radio Silence to get that and Solitaire signed by Alice. However, whilst browisng the shelves I also found a few others books that I grabbed. The Art of Being Normal was hidden away on the bottom shelf and it was a signed copy, The Rest of Us Just Live Here was another signed copy under the buy one get one half price deal so I also picked up All the Bright Places

Its been nice to be back
Outside of the blog I've picked up my work from university so I guess they're done with marking now! The graduation show and booklet are all ready to print too, I'll be sure to share pictures of these once I get to see them. 
I've also started my Travelling Book Project with my discord group which is fab, writing in someone else's book is kinda weird but I'm sure I'll get used too it. I can't wait to run another one too. The read-a-long for Neverwhere starts soon so hopefully I can handle reading three books at once okay.

I'm also travelling to stay with my boyfriend for a week today so I'll get lots of reading done whilst he's at work, but it'll also be great to see him again.
Please note that I've implemented a new drop down menu at the top but some pages are still in progress so the links haven't been added yet!


  1. Nice selection of books, Lauren! I have read The Rest Of Us Just Live Here, and I really enjoyed it! A different take on YA paranormal for sure :)
    And it's funny, I reviewed Blue Lily... last week, need to write my The Raven King review, and I'm listening to Shatter Me ;)
    Have a great weekend and happy reading!

      Man I'm not even sure I can begin to tackle reviewing The Raven Cycle, I enjoyed it too much.

    2. That's more or less how I feel about The Raven King, Lauren!

  2. Ooh I absolutely love The Raven Cycle and I hope you're enjoying The Raven King! I've yet to read the Shatter Me series but I've heard lots of good and swoony things about it and hope to pick it up at some point! I'm just waiting for Australia to get nicer covers for the series HAHA.
