It Started With a Tweet by Anna Bell

I love Anna Bell. I truly do. She's one of the best chick-lit authors out there currently and this is a book I've been dying to get to.

It Started With a Tweet focuses on Daisy who after accidentally tweeting something inappropriate on her works Twitter account winds up losing her job and going on a digital detox in Cumbria. Sounds like hell right? Fortunately, she has two very handsome men to distract her.

ARC: Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter

I received a free copy of this book through NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Not if I Save You First is Ally Carter's latest and is an incredibly fun and easy to read YA thriller. It focuses on Maddie, the daughter of a former secret service agent and her best friend, Logan, who just so happens to be the President's fun. Set in Alaska this book is best enjoyed under many blankets with a hot drink as damn, you can feel the cold in some of the descriptions.

My Most Anticipated Books of 2018

What's this?

Am I actually writing a blog post again?

It's a shock I know but hey, I'm planning on properly doing this now. I've realised that if I'm gonna do this, I need to do it properly. So I'll finally be writing non-review posts regularly as well as talking about non-book things occasionally.

And what better thing to start myself off with then by talking about the books I'm most excited about next year? I'm going to try and focus on standalone novels or the starts of new series rather than sequels.

Oh and the release dates I'll be posting will be the ones from Amazon UK due to that being from when I can get my hands on them! Thought I'd do a favour for my fellow British readers~

ARC: Everless by Sara Holland

So I've been a little absent...again. I think I might have to start blogging about other things as well as books if I want to be writing on this a little more regularly. We'll see. I have a few book posts I'd like to write that aren't reviews and I'm going to the London Comic Con this Saturday so I might write a roundup after.

We'll see.

But for now I bring you a review of an amazing debut novel that is coming out January next year and that's Everless by Sara Holland. Due to technical issues, I don't have a picture but I received a free copy of this book through NetGalley and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Everless is a YA fantasy that focuses on Jules, a girl who winds up returning to work for the family she and her Father had run away from years ago so her Father wouldn't trade the rest of his life to pay the bills. Time is currency in this world and though that sounds a little like the film In Time, this book is nothing like it. I will add the film is still good though!

ARC: My Side of the Diamond by Sally Gardner

This book took it's time getting here but unfortunately there were shipping problems merp. It happens though and all it means is that review is being posted after the book has already been published. That's not exactly a problem, is it?

Anyway, I received my copy of My Side of the Diamond through ReadersFirst. This is a really short and easy to read YA book by Sally Gardner and it's one that looks absolutely gorgeous. The book has a soft cover and can be closed with a convenient strap which gives it the feel of a notebook. Why you ask? Because notebooks are important to the see this book focuses on Jazmin, a girl whose writer best friend disappeared after falling off a tower with a boy. The story goes back to when the girls first grew close when Jazmin and Becky talked about Becky's stories.

ARC: Ringer by Lauren Oliver

Replica was a book that I'd been meaning to read since it had come out but hadn't gotten around to. So when I saw that Ringer was on offer and how good the plots looked, I knew I had to finally read this duology. So I requested Ringer, grabbed Replica from the library and got started on this series!

Oh and I should say that my copy of Ringer was provided to me by Book Bridgr in return for an honest review.

Ringer is set a few months after Replica with both Lyra and Gemma having to get used to how their lives have changed. When Gemma overhears something she goes to warn Lyra to get out but the other girl was already leaving to follow after Caelum. Both of these stories are a lot more action-packed than the first book and they can be read either one after the other or in alternating chapters.
