Weekly Book Round Up! 6th October

 Weekly Book Round Up!

Hello everyone! Welcome to my weekly round up of all my bookish happenings from over the past week. Find out what I've been reading, buying, borrowing and reviewing below. Lots of books to discuss this week!

Currently reading: 

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
4 to 16 Characters by Kelly Hourihan

Yes, I am finally reading Twilight! I'm one of the few people on the planet who has never read the books or seen the films so I'm changing that now. 4 to 16 Characters is really good so far. It's written through blog and social media posts which is a really cool concept.

Books finished:
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Books reviewed:
Skulk by Rosie Best
Briar Rose by Jana Oliver
Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve
Resist by Sarah Crossan

Received for review:

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Huge thank you to Quercus for this one! I started reading it as soon as it arrived because I was so excited and couldn't stop, so I've already finished it. Keep an eye out for my review next month! I'm also taking part in the cover reveal tomorrow so check back to see the gorgeous UK cover.

 The Scar Boys by Len Vlahos

So I decided to investigae Edelweiss this week which is a website a bit like NetGalley that gives reviewers access to review copies. It confused the hell out of me and I'm still not sure I understand it, but I did discover this amazing looking book. It's compared to R. J. Palacio's Wonder (which I adored) and it's about music which is my go-to thing in books at the moment!

Relic by Heather Terrell

This was described as The Hunger Games meets Game of Thrones and seeing as I love both those series I just couldn't resist! It's out at the end of October so I'll be reading it soon. Thanks Soho Teen! I also downloaded the free prequel novella - see Kindle freebies!

Library books:
I went to return a book and really wasn't planning on taking anything else out, but my local library's YA section is getting better and better. So I left with three books...

After Tomorrow by Gillian Cross
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks
H.I.V.E by Mark Walden

I knew nothing about any of these books before taking them out, and I love discovering new titles. Hopefully I'll get round to reading them all.


A Dance With Dragons Part 1: Dreams and Dust & A Dance With Dragons Part 2: After the Feast by George R. R. Martin

These aren't YA, but everyone loves these books so I'll feature them anyway! I've read part one but got it from the library, and haven't read part two yet. I own the rest of the books before this in a box set but grabbed these on Kindle because they were 99p each. Much easier than getting the physical copies which are huge!

Kindle freebies:

Chronicle by Heather Terrell
Bounty Hunter by S. J. Hollis

I downloaded Chronicle to get a taster for Relic. Bounty Hunter was a Smashwords freebie after I got a discount code.

  1. Brilliant books! I've already told you my opinions on your library books ;) But I got The Naturals and The Scar Boys too, and both sound awesome. Happy reading!
