*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Penguin.
For me, a new book by Lev has been a long time coming. I absolutely adored Jack Of Hearts (and Other Parts), so the wait for a new book felt like forever. Penguin kindly gifted me a copy of Camp to help celebrate the book ‘coming out’.

I’m not normally a huge reader of fantasy but so far this year I’ve dug into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and now Girls of Paper and Fire by Nastasha Ngan – both of which I have loved! GOPAF was our Book Club pick for April and I truly adored it. I was unsure how I’d feel but I was so into it and I loved talking about it at Book Club (which I’ll upload a post about on Monday). I read most of this whilst sat in the wonderful weather over the Easter weekend – there’s no better way of spending a hot, sunny day than going for walks in beautiful places and sitting reading a good book outdoors! On with the review…

It’s taken me a very long time to finally pick up Orbiting Jupiter. I bought my copy last year at YALC and was determined to read it straight away as it’s short and heard incredible things about it. That clearly didn’t happen as i’m only just reviewing it now.

I’d heard about Noah Can’t Even before it’s release and it somewhat slipped under my radar a little. What kept me wanting to read this book was the slight niggling feeling i had that Simon was going to be announced as a YALC author this year. Low and behold he was, so i added it to my YALC TBR list immediately.

Sarah Crossan is officially one of my favourite authors. The Weight Of Water was the last book that i had to read of hers, so i can officially say that i love her now, right? She’s a fantastic story teller and verse writer, it’s hard not to fall in love with each of her stories.

I was put off by this novel for a long time. Just before the release and shortly after, it was being made a very big deal of online, and i wasn’t quite sure why. Admittedly, i knew nothing about it anyway. I’d never read the back of it or never picked up a copy in store (i think it was the garish pink that put me off!) but one day, i put a copy in my basket and that was it. It was advertised a lot while we were at YALC this year, and i knew i had a copy at home, but i still wasn’t in the mood to pick it up and read it. Until one day, i was choosing a book to read and Under Rose-Tainted Skies came in to my eye line.

I picked up The 100 a long time ago back when the TV series started, in hope that i would read the book and then dive right in to the series. That didn’t happen. About a year ago i tried watching one episode of it and couldn’t focus, so ultimately gave up. I had little hope for this novel as i was losing interest. That was until i found out that Kass Morgan would be talking on the YA Rebellion talk at YALC and figured i should probably read it. I was surprised.
