Last month I had a very good reading month, and I wanted to continue that in April. Uni is starting to calm down as I approach my last few weeks as a student (yes, that’s right, last few weeks as a student) and it means that I have quite a bit more time to read. It also helps that over the last month I’ve read books that I’ve actually been obsessed with. In fact my new favourite contemporary novel has been read in April!

It’s not often that I pick up a short story collection and read through the whole thing in a few days, however that happened with Mr Jolly, Michael Stewart’s first short story collection! I was given a copy of this very weird and wonderful collection for review (as Michael is in fact my lecturer at university) and I could not be more pleased and grateful to have been given the opportunity to read these amazing stories.

So on that note, here’s my ridiculously big January book haul!

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!
