It’s not every day that you get to meet one of your favourite authors (okay, favourite human beings) but I was lucky enough to finally meet Mrs Giovanna Fletcher over the weekend. Giovanna is the author of three novels (Billy and Me, You’re the One That I Want & Dream A Little Dream) and also two novellas (Christmas with Billy and Me & Dream A Little Christmas Dream.) Luckily, she’s currently working on a fourth novel that I cannot wait to get stuck in to in the New Year!

I picked up The Duff before its movie release because of the massive amount of hype around it at the time. Everyone in the online book community seemed to be obsessed with the idea of the novel being about the underdog (what novels aren’t really about the underdog?) and the easy read of it. I literally could not wait to dive in to it once I bought it, of course so I could then watch the anticipated movie!

Bloomsbury were kind enough to send me “One” by Sarah Crossan for review last week after I’d seen the cover floating around online. I had very little (okay no) idea what it was actually about and wanted to dive straight in as soon as I found out it was a story about the conjoined twins, Grace and Tippi. Never before had I read anything quite like this, the idea of it seemed exciting and unusual and those are the two things I look for in a book!

I’ve had fangirl sitting on my bookshelf since its release week back in September 2013 and I’ve only just gotten around to reading it (I know, I know.) It’s an absolutely perfect transition book for anyone who is in College or University and I cannot believe I’ve waited this long to read it. Honestly the only thing that forced me to read it now is the fact that this time next year I won’t be a student anymore and I probably won’t relate to it as well. So at the beginning of my third year of University I picked up on of the most well-known YA books around!

This weekend has been the first time in a while that I’ve had a little book splurge. When I say ‘little’ I mean that I got all of these books for under £10! Absolute bargain. So I honestly couldn’t resist buying these when I stumbled upon them. I have plenty of other books that I’m prioritising over these ones sadly, as I’m super excited about a few of them. I have my end of the year TBR and the Read-Along coming up for Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, meaning I don’t have time to start them soon! However the deals were just too good to pass up.

September has been a little bit of a busy month for me, getting prepared for my return to University (third and final year! Yikes!), catching up with friends and a lot of family events going on – I’ve barely had chance to get my head in to a book! However I powered through the first few weeks when I was still living the less frantic lifestyle my parents’ house had to offer and managed to read three and a half novels and one graphic novel. This is nowhere near as much as I’d hoped to read but I’m still on track with my end of year goals!
