- Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver - I really liked this book. It was tense and gripping, and kept me wanting reading until the end. I adored Lauren Oliver's writing style, which makes me very excited to read Panic, and while I did guess one plot twist, I didn't guess the other. 4.5 stars.
- The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding (reread) - I just can't recommend this series enough! Seriously, if you like adventure books or historical books, please pick up The Diamond of Drury Lane. This is probably the third time I have read it (Excluding the times I've scanned through it to find scenes with Frank, my favourite character, in!), and I was still captivated by the plot and the setting. 5 stars.
- The Good Girls by Sara Shepard - The concluding part to The Perfectionists duology was amazing! I enjoyed these two books even more than the Pretty Little Liars series, because they had a stronger plot. That twist at the end of The Good Girls was completely unexpected for me (I was spoiled by a Goodreads review, and I still was surprised!), and I like how everything turned out. The ending wasn't especially satisfying, but I liked the openness of it and how it felt a little unsettling. It was better than The Perfectionists as there was more action and less of the characters discussing what to do. Sara Shepard does not disappoint (but I am a massive fan of her books)! 5 stars.
- Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer - I read this on the way back from YALC, and after about two hours I was already half way through. This was easy to read, fun, light-hearted...just like a fairy tale! I loved Oliver's world and found the whole premise fascinating. More of my thoughts can be found in my joint review of this and Off the Page, which is here. 4 stars.
- Off the Page by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer - Similar to Between the Lines, I really enjoyed this, perhaps more so than BtL as it felt like it had a stronger plot. 4 stars.
- The Secret Fire by CJ. Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld - I was requested this from Atom so I could review it, and also because I wanted to give a book by CJ. Daugherty a try, having read Night School and not been 100% sure about it (my review is here). And I am SO glad I did! This book was amazing, and I'll be sharing my full review of it closer to the release date, the 10th of September. Keep your eyes out for this book; I think it'll be big! 4.5 stars.
- Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan - This book was a fun, intriguing start to the Percy Jackson series and a good choice for #TBRtakedown. I loved all of the characters,Grover and Annabeth especially...I love how Annabeth a) is scared of spiders (like me!), and b) is completely kick-ass and sticks up for herself. Percy was really funny too, and so caring towards his mother. I am going to continue on with this series as I think it will get better and better. 4 stars
- Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender - Oh my goodness, this book. I read this as part of #TBRtakedown , and now I am furious with myself for not reading it sooner! I love love LOVE what I call ghosty books, and as ghosty books go, this one was pretty damn good. 5 stars, this is the favourite I was talking about at the start of the post. My review is here
- The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon - I've only read about 46% of this book, and I put it down to read...something. I can't remember now! I think it was The Geography of You and Me, which I also put down after about two chapters. I just wasn't in the mood to read either of them, although I've kept the bookmark in The Bone Season. I was finding it quite confusing if I'm honest, but hopefully I'll pick it up another time and be in the mood to read it.
Thanks for reading(:
