Hello again everyone - I'm back from the beautiful city of Rome and it's nice to be able to post here again! Thanks so much to all of you who left comments when I was away - I really appreciate it! I had a fantastic holiday, but unfortunately it left little time for reading. I do however have 2 reviews to write and had these books sent to me whilst I was away...

I was sent a copy of The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer - I'll admit that I'm a little wary of reading a book by a Glee star, but it looks like a gorgeous book so of course I will give it a go! I was also sent a copy of Charade by the fantastic author Cambria Hebert - Thanks, Cambria! I am majorly excited to read Masque of the Red Death, Torn and Raven Boys which I all received ARCs of - they look great and Torn looks particularly intriguing to me.

I received one swap whilst I was away and that was a copy of You Are So Undead To Me by Stacey Jay which looks quite fun!

 I think a ban from book-buying for a week (only due to lack of ability to read Italian...) may be my record! Anyway, I broke it today when I saw Bared to You for half price at a bookshop, even though it's not yet meant to be in the shops (I'm certainly not complaining) and although they're not my usual reads, I decided to pick up a copy of Virals and Postcard Killers for a change.

I hope everyone has been and is well, let me know what you got to read this week!

  24. Wow, what a haul there!!! Some impressive books and gorgeous covers!! I have read an excerpt of 'Bared to you' and oh my, made me blush lol. But i wanted to read more haha. Have you read fifty shades of grey books? if so, how do they compare to you? I have borrowed the fifty shades trilogy from my friend but not sure i will read it yet. Will you be reviewing 'Bared to you'? xx

Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone - Whilst I appreciate the thought, I simply don't have the time to pass them on.

Please feel free to leave a reply, I read and appreciate them all!
