It was only recently that I read Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas and loved it. So, when I saw that Aiden Thomas was releasing a new book that has been described as Percy Jackson meets The Hunger Games, I was beyond excited to give it a read. Something about books with deadly competitions has me hooked right away and this was no different.
Happy November everyone! It is the start of a brand new month, which means it is book haul time. This haul consists of 14 books. It has some books gifted by publishers, pre-orders, gifts and a couple I've picked up for myself. Here is my October book haul!
Happy Halloween! It is the last day of October and this month seems to have flown by. It has been another busy month. I turned 25, went to a concert, did some shopping and even had a few days away. Here is what happened in October!

I love doing book tags! It is fun to think about all the questions and see how different people answer them. So, when I saw the 'This or That' book tag, I had to give it a go. I've seen this one on a few people's blogs but can't seem to find who created it. Here is the 'This or That' book tag!
I am back with another 'Currently I'm...' post. For those who do not know, I started doing these posts because I am always interesting in finding out what other people's currents are. I love knowing what other people are currently reading, watching and listening to. Here is this month's 'Currently I'm...'.
When artistic and sensitive Santi arrives at his new high school, everyone in the wildly talented marching band welcomes him with open arms. Everyone except for the prickly, proud musical prodigy Suwa, who doesn’t think Santi has what it takes to be in the band.

Will their fresh start rip at the seams as Suwa seeks out a solo spotlight, and both boys come to terms with what it'll take, and what they'll have to let go, to realize their dreams?
One of the books that I read in July was She Gets the Girl by Rachael Lippincott and Alyson Derrick. I absolutely loved it and cannot recommend it enough. It is also full of beautiful quotes. So, I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing.
One of the books I saved to take on holiday with me was Book Lovers by Emily Henry. By the time this post goes live, I should have read the book and I imagine I'll have loved it. Before I read this book, I saw a few quotes from it and this one in particular is so beautiful. So, I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing.
My Netgalley TBR is quite out of control at the moment. Writing these posts helps me see what is on my TBR and work out when I need to read them though, which is excellent. There have been so many amazing books on my Netgalley shelf over the years and it is a place that I’ve found so many new authors and books.
