Happy Friday people!! 
I finally have a weekend off so I'm super excited for that, and my shift at work is only 4 hours today so that's pretty good :)
I've had a bit of a stressful morning for one reason or another so I decided to do this post to take my mind off it!

Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
Synopsis - Outside the dome of Reverie, Aria and Perry are struggling to keep their people from tearing each other apart. Their situation is desperate, and with the Aether storms worsening time is running out for them to rescue Cinder from Hess and Sable.
Cinder is both the key to unlock the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, so Aria and Perry assemble an unlikely team to attempt a daring rescue mission. They know that in a dying world, the bond of friendship is what matters most.
I've raved about this trilogy a lot on my blog and I'm so gutted to be finishing it but it has to be done! I need to know what happens to Aria and (my book boyfriend) Perry.
I was only reading this at the start of the week but then me and my friend decided we want to go and see the film version of Before I Go To Sleep when it comes out on the 5th of September so I thought I better start reading it so I could finish it in time.

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson
Synopsis - Memories define us.
So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
Welcome to Christine's life.
I just finished reading Gone Girl and my friend said she enjoyed Before I Go To Sleep more than that book, plus the film comes out soon so I've got straight onto reading this!
I'm about 80 pages in and it's definitely getting interesting, I love trying to guess the twists in books like this and Gone Girl but I'm terrible, I always get it wrong! 

I'm hoping to finish at least Before I Go To Sleep this weekend, if not both of these books, I'm planning some intensive reading on my weekend off as I'm quite skint and reading is a free activity haha!
Toodles! x
Hola ice cream sodas!!
Today I thought I'd do a wishlist, as I'm totally skint until payday but that just makes me more determined to plan my purchases for when I DO have money!

These will be the first books winging their way to my Amazon basket as soon as my pay goes into my bank account!! 
If you want to check out all the books on my Amazon wishlist the link is here.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
Synopsis - Oz has turned into a savage dystopia under Dorothy s rule and now a new girl from Kansas must take her down. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz meets Kill Bill in this edgy, fast-paced fantasy adventure. Somewhere over the rainbow...something has gone terribly wrong. A twister has hit Kansas again, and this time it whisks away a girl named Amy Gumm. At first, Amy is thrilled to have left her trailer park life behind. But instead of the magical land where troubles melt like lemon drops that she knows from the books and the movies, she discovers the place has been destroyed. And it s all Dorothy s fault. Amy soon joins up with the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked a group of deposed witches and warlocks who are determined to end Dorothy s oppressive reign, and who need Amy's help. They teach her the secrets of witchcraft and combat and then they give her an impossible mission: steal back the Tin Woodman s heart, the Scarecrow s brain, and the Lion s courage. And when she s done, Dorothy must die.
I've had this on my wishlist for a while and I think it sounds like such a cool book! 
There's been some controversy surrounding the publishers of this book but I'm not bothered about that, the writer isn't to blame for any dodginess her publishers get into, she still has to make a living, and this book intrigues me so I'll definitely be buying it! 

The Year I Met You by Cecelia Ahern
Synopsis - Jasmine loves two things: her sister and her work. And when her work is taken away she has no idea who she is.
Matt loves two things: his family and the booze. Without them, he hits rock bottom.
One New Year’s Eve, two people’s paths collide. Both have time on their hands; both are at a crossroads. But as the year unfolds, through moonlit nights and suburban days, an unlikely friendship slowly starts to blossom.
Sometimes you have to stop still in order to move on…
I'm a huge fan of Cecelia Ahern, I've read all of her books so when I heard this one is coming out in October I added it straight to my wishlist!
I'll be pre-ordering it when payday rolls around so I get it on the day of release (thank you Amazon Prime!!).
I love the cover, it's stunning!

Harry Potter Signature Edition Box Set by J.K. Rowling
Synopsis - Harry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him who's parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they?
I think we all know what Harry Potter is, I've only read the first one and I really enjoyed it so I'm going to invest in the full box set! I love these covers and the whole set, including a snazzy box, is only less than £30 on Amazon, so it's cost effective to buy the set instead of each book individually...or that's what I tell myself anyway!

Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott
Synopsis - Tella's brother is dying. He's got cancer, and Tella is helpless to save him. Or so she thought. When an invitation arrives for Tella to compete in the Brimstone Bleed, a deadly competition that will lead her through treacherous jungle and scorching desert, she doesn't think twice. Because the prize is a cure to any illness. But Tella will be facing more than just the elements..
I think this sounds so compelling, sort of on a similar vein to Hunger Games and The Maze Runner, both of which I really enjoyed.
It is apparently a cross between Pokemon and The Hunger Games, which is possibly the bizarrest description ever! 

Legend by Marie Lu

Synopsis - Los Angeles, California.
Republic of America.
He is Day.
The boy who walks in the light.
She is June.
The girl who seeks her brother's killer.
On the run and undercover, they meet by chance. Irresistably drawn together, neither knows the other's past.
But Day murdered June's brother.
And she has sworn to avenge his death.
I've heard SO much about this book from fellow book bloggers and booktubers, it sounds really intriguing and I love the cover (shallow I know) so I really want to buy it so I have it on hand to read when I get the urge.

And that's my, fairly modest I think, book wishlist! I'm sure I'll buy a lot more than is on this list but hey, I can dream I can show restraint can't I?!
Toodles! x
Hello again bookmarks!!
I was meant to be in Liverpool for the past few days but unfortunately we had to cancel as our little adopted kitty Maggie hasn't been very well so we didn't want to leave her :(
But we did have a lovely day out in York anyway on Monday so all was not lost, we went to Byron Burger and had the worlds bestest burger and chocolate milkshake!, and then we did a bit of shopping and drove home through hurricane Bertha! 

Time for part 2!

A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen
Synopsis - When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet.
Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.
Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.
My boyfriend bought me this book because I'm the worlds biggest cat lady and for some reason I'd never read this world famous story about a man and his cat!
I can't wait to read it, I think it'll be a quick and heartwarming read :)

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Synopsis - My Vampire Creator Told Me This: 'Sometime in your life, Allison Sekemoto, you will kill a human being. The question is not if it will happen, but when. Do you understand?' I didn't then, not really. I DO NOW.
This front cover is SO cool, I love the black and white with the shot of colour in the form of the blood red tear, super cool! 
I've heard a few people on booktube say this is a interesting series, and on Amazon it says it's for fans of The Hunger Games, which is me!

Mad About The Boy by Helen Fielding
Synopsis - Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice?
Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood?
Is sleeping with someone after 2 dates and 6 weeks of texting the same as getting married after 2 meetings and 6 months of letter writing in Jane Austen's day?
Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, tweeting, texting and rediscovering her sexuality in what SOME people rudely and outdatedly call 'middle age'
I haven't yet read the first and second books in this series but when I saw this for only £2 in a charity shop I snapped it up! I love the bright red hardback too, so eye-catching!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Synopsis - 'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.'
A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
This is a classic and I really want to expand my knowledge of the classics, plus I love the film adaptation so I figure the book will be even better!
The cover is gorgeous, I love black and white covers, they always look so eye catching and graphic.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Synopsis - Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home; then one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive unexpectedly and enlist his services – as a burglar – on a dangerous expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon. Bilbo’s life is never to be the same again.
I am a huge fan of  The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies but I've never got round to reading the books properly.
I've been lusting after this special collectors edition of The Hobbit for ages but it was always too expensive everywhere, until I found it on The Works for £2.99!! Such an amazing price for such a beautiful book.

Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson
Synopsis - Memories define us.
So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
Welcome to Christine's life.
I saw a trailer for the film version on a news website and it looked ok, but when I looked at the comments on the article they were all saying how amazing the book is and to bypass the film and just read the book, so I went on Amazon and bought it immediately! 
I'm impulsive like that....

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Synopsis - I have done bad things. I can’t take them back, and they are part of who I am.
Tris has survived a brutal attack on her former home and family. But she has paid a terrible price. Wracked by grief and guilt, she becomes ever more reckless as she struggles to accept her new future.
Yet if Tris wants to uncover the truth about her world, she must be stronger than ever… because more shocking choices and sacrifices lie ahead.
I got the matching sequel to my copy of Divergent because I really want to know what happens with Tris and Four..and plus I want the full set so it looks pretty on my shelf #sorrynotsorry!

There's my book haul for July! I'm trying to limit the amount of books I'm buying this month so I'm not sure how large the August book haul will be...but known me it'll be ginormous as I have no self control! 
Toodles! x
Hello delightful booky-wooks!!
Who else can't believe it's August already?! My boyfriends birthday is on the 11th and it's snuck up on me so much! Luckily I just have to buy him a present and not a card as we don't bother with cards, save the trees and all that (I'm a bit of a hippy on the sly..).
We're off to Liverpool for a few days from Sunday for some shopping and ''us'' time so I will probably pick up a few books while I'm there...and maybe some clothes...and some makeup....you get the idea ;).

Onto the haul! 

The Mortal Instruments Series 1-5 Box Set by Cassandra Clare
Synopsis - Sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is an ordinary teenager, who likes hanging out in Brooklyn with her friends. But everything changes the night she witnesses a murder, committed by a group of teens armed with medieval weaponry.

The murderous group are Shadowhunters, secret warriors dedicated to driving demons out of this dimension and back into their own. Drawn inexorably into a terrifying world, Clary slowly begins to learn the truth about her family - and the battle for the fate of the world.
I've been wanting to buy City of Bones for a while now so when I saw this box set on The Works for only £10.99 I had to snap it up!! 5 books for that price is amazing.
They usually have these sets in stock quite regularly so, even though it's sold out now, it'll more than likely be back in stock soon.
Link to the set is here.

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Synopsis - She is pretty and talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed.
He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future.
And now they have fallen in love.
But . . .
They are brother and sister.
If that synopsis doesn't grab you then I don't know what will!!
It might not be the topic for everyone, but I think this sounds like a really interesting book and it's been on my wish list for a long time so I'm stoked to finally own it!

You're the One That I Want by Giovanna Fletcher
Synopsis - Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob - the man she's about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben - best man and the best friend any two people ever had.
And that's the problem
Because if it wasn't Rob waiting for her at the altar, there's a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned round and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right?
Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it..
I've heard a lot of hype about Giovanna Fletcher, who is the wife of Tom from the pop band McFly, apparently she's the new chick-lit queen on the scene!
I'm a big fan of fluffy, romantic books so I hope I'll really enjoy this book and her writing style, she seems like a really nice woman, down to earth! 
Plus the cover is really bright and exotic looking, I love it!

Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
Synopsis - 
Sophie May has a secret.
One that she's successfully kept for years. It's meant that she's had to give up her dreams of going to university and travelling the world to stay in her little village, living with her mum and working in the local teashop.
But then she meets the gorgeous Billy - an actor with ambitions to make it to the top. And when they fall in love, Sophie is whisked away from the comfort of her life into Billy's glamorous - but ruthless - world.
Their relationship throws Sophie right into the spotlight after years of shying away from attention. Can she handle the constant scrutiny that comes with being with Billy? And most of all, is she ready for her secret heartbreak to be discovered and shared with the nation?
This is another novel by Giovanna, I believe this was her first book and it has a recommendation from Jill Mansell on the front cover, Jill is a great author so I have high hopes for this book!

Day of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Synopsis - Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living - one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers' arms to take their turn in the killing and dying. Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel - a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. This was not that world.
If you read my July wrap-up you'd know that I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I absolutely LOVED it, so naturally I bought the sequel almost straight away!! 
Love the cover, it doesn't match the first book I own but I couldn't for the life of me find the matching edition to that one, so I had to make do with this one, it pains me that they don't match though...#firstworldproblems.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Synopsis - We are the Liars. We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury. We are cracked and broken. A story of love and romance. A tale of tragedy. Which are lies? Which is truth?
I've already read this book and I spoke a bit about it in my wrap-up (link here) and I was underwhelmed by it! People have been raving about it on booktube and the book community but I found it a bit predictable.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Synopsis - It's 1999 and for the staff of one newspaper office, the internet is still a novelty. By day, two young women, Beth and Jennifer, spend their hours emailing each other, discussing in hilarious detail every aspect of their lives, from love troubles to family dramas. And by night, Lincoln, a shy, lonely IT guy spends his hours reading every exchange.
At first their emails offer a welcome diversion, but as Lincoln unwittingly becomes drawn into their lives, the more he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time Lincoln realizes just how head-over-heels he really is, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he say to her? 'Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mails - and also, I think I love you'.
After a series of close encounters, Lincoln decides it's time to muster the courage to follow his heart, and find out whether there really is such a thing as love before first-sight.
I loved Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I've just finished reading Eleanor & Park, which I enjoyed but not as much as Fangirl by far! 
So I thought it was time to grow my collection a bit, plus this sounds like a really interesting topic for a book, and as a child of the 90's I'm interested to see if this book has any references in it I recognise!

What a Girl Wants by Lindsey Kelk
Synopsis - Being arrested in your own bedroom is never a good start to the day. Tess Brookes really needs to sort out her back-stabbing flatmate – and her life.
Should she gamble all on the new photography job she’s landed, or snap up the offer from long-time crush and best friend Charlie to start up on their own – in more ways than one? There’s just one small thing she hasn’t mentioned. Or rather, one tall thing. He’s handsome, infuriating and called Nick…
For the first time, Tess has to choose between the life she always dreamed of and a future she never imagined possible. From London to Milan, with high fashion and low behaviour thrown in, she’s going to have to make up her mind what a girl really wants…
I'm a big fan of Lindsey Kelk's writing so when I saw that this book was coming out I snapped it up from Amazon straight away! And with Prime membership, this book arrived the day it came out, which is awesome!

There's part 1 of my haul, stay tuned for part 2! 
Hello lovely people and welcome to my best reading month yet! 
I read a total of 7 books, which is really good for me!

One of the books is missing from the picture because I borrowed it from my brother and have now given him it back, but it was a manga called Barefoot Gen: Vol. 1 by Keiji Nakazawa;
Synopsis - The reissue of this classic manga's first volume has impeccable timing. It recounts the bombing of Hiroshima from the perspective of a young boy, Gen, and his family. But the book's themes (the physical and psychological damage ordinary people suffer from war's realities) ring chillingly true today. Despite its harrowing nature, this work is invaluable for the lessons it offers in history, humanity and compassion. Published to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing.
This was a story that definitely made me think, the atrocities that the Japanese suffered in Hiroshima is one of the most horrifying stories in history in my opinion, and it rarely gets spoken about on TV, films or books so reading this was a eye opener. 
I'm not saying this is a really enjoyable read, but it probably is a book I would recommend people read so they can understand more about what happened leading upto, and on that fateful day in history.
I gave this manga 3 out of 5 stars.

Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling
Synopsis - Harry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him who's parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they?
I probably didn't need to type a synopsis for Harry Potter as I'm the only person in the civilised world who hasn't read it haha but just in case there's another freak of nature out there who hasn't read it, I thought I would!
I put off reading this book for ages because I tried to read it when I was a kid and just didn't understand what everyone saw in it, but recently I thought I'd give it another go because EVERYONE and their dog raved about it, and I've got to admit, I'm a convert!
I've had a lot of people tell me how lucky I am that I get to experience the stories for the first time which is a really nice way to look at it I think.
I will definitely continue with the series and I gave this first book 4 out of 5 stars.

The Death Cure by James Dashner
Synopsis - The Trials are over. WICKED have collected all the information they can. Now it's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. But something has happened that no-one at WICKED has foreseen: Thomas has remembered more than they think. And he knows WICKED can't be trusted ... The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. With the Gladers divided, can they all make it?
This is the final book in The Maze Runner trilogy, apart from the prequel The Kill Order.
I was really happy with this last book, I enjoyed the ending and thought it wrapped the story up well.
I didn't give it a perfect 5 out of 5 just because I didn't think it was as exciting and action packed as the second book The Scorch Trials, and I gave that 5 stars so I felt I had to give the last book slightly less.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Synopsis - We are the Liars. We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury. We are cracked and broken. A story of love and romance. A tale of tragedy. Which are lies? Which is truth?
There's not much of a synopsis for this book because it's very hard to explain what it's about, I won't spoil it because it does have twists and turns all over the place but I will say I was left underwhelmed personally, everyone was bigging up this book and I just felt like the twists were easy to figure out and the lead characters were slightly annoying.
I gave this book 3 out of 5 because it was well written, I just felt underwhelmed after all the hype it received.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Synopsis - Errand requiring immediate attention. Come.
The note was on vellum, pierced by the talons of the almost-crow that delivered it. Karou read the message. 'He never says please', she sighed, but she gathered up her things.
When Brimstone called, she always came.
In general, Karou has managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she's a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. Raised half in our world, half in 'Elsewhere', she has never understood Brimstone's dark work - buying teeth from hunters and murderers - nor how she came into his keeping. She is a secret even to herself, plagued by the sensation that she isn't whole
Now the doors to Elsewhere are closing, and Karou must choose between the safety of her human life and the dangers of a war-ravaged world that may hold the answers she has always sought.
I absolutely adored this book! Definitely my favourite of the past month, if not one of my favourites of the year!
Karou is such a strong heroine, she knows how to defend herself, she's not afraid of much and she's funny and smart too.
The writing style is so captivating, I really felt like I could picture all the characters and like I got to know them and care about them.
And then of course there's Akiva....oh my...he's a bit of a dish let's just say!
My book boyfriend is Perry from Under The Never Sky, but Akiva makes me question that decision! 
If only book boys were real!
I gave this book 5 out of 5, I'd give it more if I could and I have already bought the second book!

I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk
Synopsis - Angela is in the city of love – but romance is taking a nose-dive…
When Angela Clark’s boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance.
But even as she’s falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone’s conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tête-à-tête with his ex in a local bar, Angela’s dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her.
With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can’t decide if should stay and face the music or run away home…
This is the third book in the I Heart New York series, I enjoyed this one even though it definitely had a few characters in it who really annoyed me and made me want to dive in the book and throttle them!!
At times I don't know how, or why, Angela kept her cool, because this Angela would have handed out some cans of whoop-ass!! 
I really like where the story is going though and I'm excited to read I Heart Vegas.
I gave this book 4 out of 5.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Synopsis - "You can't touch me," I whisper.
I'm lying, is what I don't tell him.
He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him.
But things happen when people touch me.
Strange things.
Bad things.
No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon.
But Juliette has plans of her own.
After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.
This book had to be the biggest disappointment of the month for me, I'd been looking forward to reading it as the trilogy gets a lot of hype, but I found Juliette to be very irritating and the writing style was too sappy for me, all of the gushing about Adams lips and arms and how it never just said Juliette was blushing, it would say something like ''I've fallen off a ladder with a paintbrush full of red paint in my hand'', I mean...what?!
It got better when I got past the halfway point of the book but near the start I was contemplating not finishing it.
I'm glad I did, and I think I'd carry on with the trilogy just because everyone seems to think Unravel Me is a lot better than Shatter Me.
I gave this 3 out of 5.

And that's my wrap-up! I hope August is as successful a reading month as July was!
Let me know if you've read any amazing books this past month, I'm always open to adding books to my to-read list!
Pinch, punch, first of the month everyone!! 
I've been working a lot this week so I can't wait for a day off tomorrow! Unfortunately I'm in work on Sunday so I don't get a full weekend but hey-ho, can't complain!

Synopsis Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried. Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose. Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor & Park is funny, sad, shocking and true - an exquisite nostalgia trip for anyone who has never forgotten their first love.

This book was on my August TBR (link here) and I feel like a sweet contemporary, but I've heard it's pretty sad too so I can't wait to get stuck into it! I've been in a real reading mood lately so I'm hoping to steam through this book :)
It's unlikely I'll finish this book this weekend but if I do then I'll probably read Angelfall by Susan Ee or Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, which was also on my TBR for this month. 
Toodles! x
