I picked up The One Memory of Flora Banks quite a while ago in the hope it was a contemporary that i would enjoy. I knew very little about it before i picked it up. And surprise surprise, it was YALC that pushed me in to reading it.

When We Were Liars was first released I had very little interest in it unlike everyone else. I’d seen so many people saying that it was an absolutely incredible book, however the cover just didn’t say the same thing to me!

It’s officially the last day of the Halloween read-along tomorrow! That means I’ve got left just a mere twenty-four hours to finish Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children! Am I going to do it? To be honest I’m not entirely sure. I’ve had a lot of Uni work in the last week and a lot of other things going on that I’ve not had much time to read! I need a full afternoon free so I can just lay in my bed and get my head stuck in the book! But I will definitely do my best to get it finished up before tomorrow night!
