YA releases to look forward to

This week I am eager to share my list of anticipated releases. Make sure to comment below what books you're looking forward to publishing in the next few months!

The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin

Pre-order | Amazon | Book Depository

This is a new companion series to the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, which remains one of my favourites. The original series follows Mara Dyer, who is high key going insane and as a reader we get a glimpse into her incredibly vivid hallucinations. It is decidedly the most haunting series I have read. It had me questioning my own mental capacity the whole time, always a good sign of an epic book of course. When it was announced that we are getting another series, based this time on Noah Shaw (the male protagonist in the original trilogy) I squealed. Out loud. He is a brilliantly sassy character and I am so ready for this book. Michelle Hodkin floored me with the plot twists in the Mara Dyer series and I am so ready for her to throw some more bombshells into my life.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Pre-order | Amazon | Book Depository

I AM LIVING. A new Holly Black book. Let us collect our thoughts. I have been anticipating this book for months and January cannot get here fast enough. This is a new series set in a faerie court, and follows Jude who has always wanted to be a part of it, despite her mortality.  To get a place at the court she must defy the wicked son of the High King, Prince Cardan, just as the court is being threatened with civil war. Doesn’t this sound like the best fantasy ever? Fae, danger, unlikely alliances and lies? NEED.

The Fandom by Anna Day

Pre-order | Amazon | Book Depository

This choice is a slight attempt at cheating as despite this publishing in January 2018, it is already in my possession. I however couldn’t resist raving about it on this list. This book brings to life what we all low-key wish to happen and that is for our favourite fictional worlds to become a reality. The novel follows Violet who is going to Comic Con in the hopes of encountering the stars of the movie, The Gallows Dance. After getting transformed into the movie's fantasy world, it is up to them to put the plot back on track and get out in time.

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi

Pre-order | Amazon | Book Depository

ASDFGHJKL. I am not ok. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the Shatter Me series to be getting another book, let alone three. I am not a huge fan of reboots but this series is one that in my opinion left a lot of unanswered questions and the fact that we will now know what happens after Ignite Me completes my life. If you have not read the Shatter Me series (YOU SHOULD), it is perfect if you enjoy the X-men movies and dystopian worlds. It follows Juliette, who can kill with her touch, which caused her to be imprisoned by the Reestablishment. After it’s leaders rethink their decision, they decide to use her as a weapon, which opens her eyes to corruption and forces her to choose a side.

Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter

Pre-order | Amazon | Book Depository

If you have seen my interview with Ally Carter from her UK tour, then you are aware of just how much I freaked out at this announcement as I adore Ally Carter and her writing. She has written a standalone book about assassins! The plot is most intriguing, following Maddie who after a failed kidnapping attempt when she was younger was taken to Alaska for safety. As her childhood friend Logan joins her at the safe house many years later, he is taken and it is up to Maddie to put the past behind her and figure out how to save him.

YALC Survival Guide

I am somewhat of a self-titled YALC veteran. I have attended the event since it began, meaning I have picked up some valuable tips over the years on how to get the most out of the weekend. If you are unaware what YALC is, it is the Young Adult Literature Convention happening in London in the last weekend of July. For 3 days, Young Adult readers get together with over 100 authors to celebrate reading, with panels and signings throughout. It is needless to say that a lot of fangirling goes down. 

If you wish to know what the event is like, here is a link to my vlogs from last year...or a write up of my whole weekend. 

Before the event...
1. Plan aheadI am definitely a planning person and I cannot function at YALC without having a concise plan of what I need to do each day. Every signing, panel and actor photo shoot and free time is scheduled in, one year I even made a spreadsheet. That is how hardcore I am.

If you are travelling to the event, make sure to look up weekend train schedules as …

Back to School Readathon

Hello everybody, exciting announcement today...I'm hosting a Back To School Readathon starting on the 28th August and ending on the 3rd September! 
It will be a very casual readathon, with no rules about specific books that need to be read. Sometimes I find that readathons are too restrictive so I have decided to create one where you can read ANYTHING. Since the theme is 'Back to School' there is an optional rule to read a book set in school and I'm seriously ecstatic about picking one from my tbr (to be read)! 
Mostly this is a ploy for me to diminish the size of my ever growing tbr and with a new school term starting imminently for most students, it's the perfect chance to get as much reading done as possible. The reasoning behind making this one week prior to the end of August is also strongly associated with my never ending dream of receiving my Hogwarts letter and so in my eyes the 1st of September marks the start of a new school year. 
I would love for …

One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus

One of Us Is Lying follows a multiple point of view murder mystery centered around five students that attend detention. Only four get out alive. The victim, known for exposing everyone's darkest secrets through a gossip app, has plenty of enemies, but who has the biggest motive? Based loosely on The Breakfast Club, the four contrasting personalities begin to figure out what really went down in the classroom that day in order to clear their names.

Genre: Young Adult Mystery Ideal for Fans of: Pretty Little Liars, Riverdale, Gossip Girl Themes: Betrayal, Family, Social Stereotypes  POV: Multiple

Upon hearing this synopsis, I freaked the hell out. A Geek, a Jock, a Criminal and a Princess, all caught up in a murder investigation? Let me tell you, this hits the jackpot. My immediate reaction after finishing it was slightly unstable and I say that with pride.   I JUST FINISHED ONE OF US IS LYING AND ITS MIDNIGHT AND I HAVE AN EARLY LECTURE BUT THAT IS IRRELEVANT BECAUSE THIS BOOK IS LIFE OM…
