On the Blog
This week I was excited to be taking part in the New Adult blog tour hosted by A Daydreamer's Thoughts! On Monday I posted an interview with Denise Grover Swank and a review of the NA book After Math. See the post at this link. I also hosted Lola from Lola's reviews on Wednesday. Read her thoughts on New Adult here.
On Tuesday I shared my review of new release The Scar Boys by Len Vlahos, which was a fantastic coming of age story written in a really clever way. And on Friday I posted my review of Wither by Lauren DeStefano.
What I've Been Reading
I finished Sister Assassin by Kiersten White which is a book I've been struggling to decide my thoughts on! I loved the writing and the idea but there were some confusing moments. Hopefully my review will be up soon. I've also just started Banished by Liz de Jager which comes out next month and it's fantastic so far!
