On the blog
I started this week with my review of Jessie Hearts NYC by Keris Stainton which I absolutely adored! I have the next book, Emma Hearts LA, on loan from the library at the moment so keep an eye out for that.
I took part in Teaser Tuesdays this week and shared a teaser from Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan - my current read.
I also posted a Waiting on Wednesday this week in which I shouted about my excitement for Cat Clarke's next novel, A Kiss in the Dark.
On Thursday I reviewed the third book in the Gallagher Girls series, Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover. It wasn't my favourite of the series but I'm still really liking these books. I have the next one out from the library ready to read soon.
Friday saw another post in my Sarah's Reading Habits feature in which I shared where I get my books from.
And on Saturday I took part in the Book Blitz for Deadly to Promise by Mia Hoddell here on the blog, and shared my review of Eve & Adam over on Fandomsnews.com.
What I'm Reading
I did some cheeky book shopping this week when I visited a charity shop. I bought two books I've been wanting to read for absolutely ages. Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging is the first in the Georgia Nicholson series by Lousie Rennison which I have yet to read and I feel like it's a gaping hole in my YA reading. I also bought Prom Nights From Hell which is a collection of short stories by YA authors. I want to read more short stories and the list of names drew me in.
I also collected Champion by Marie Lu from the library! I'm SO excited to read this one as this trilogy has been one of my absolute favourites.
