An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL BOOK! I've heard so much about this book on Twitter, so when I saw this I had to snap up a copy. I'm reading it now, and it's absolutely amazing. Believe the hype peoples! I've got a heap of suspicions, but nothing has been revealed yet, so I'm hanging by a thread for the ending but at the same time I don't want it to finish! :D




Thanks Hachette Australia
The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight #1) by Melissa Grey
I haven't heard much about this book, but I am very very excited to read this. Just to add to that excitement, Laini Taylor loves this book! Not to mention that we Aussie bloggers are doing our own little nail art competition for this book! I'm so excited to do my first book-themed nails, even though I'm pretty confident that I won't be very good seeing as I don't paint my nails often, and because I don't exactly have an artistic hand. But still, it is going to be so much fun and I'm definitely going to do my nails before starting this book so that they match while reading :D





Thanks Bloomsbury Australia
Love Bomb (The Ladybirds #2) by Jenny McLachlan
I enjoyed the first book in this series, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book. I can't actually remember who Betty Plum is from Flirty Dancing (although it is really bugging me because I can't place it), so hopefully when I get around to reading it, I will remember.






Thanks Allen & Unwin Australia
The Last Place (The Last Trilogy #3) by Michael Adams
Resonance by Celine Kiernan
The Guy, The Girl, The Artist and his Ex by Gabrielle Willams
Ahh! The end to a trilogy! I can't believe it's coming to an end! I'm excited yet nervous to read this book, to see how it ends, everything. I really do hope that it explains more about what happened to everyone and I hope to see what state the world is left in and what could be in store for it's future.
I haven't heard anything about the other two books, Resonance is so damn shinny!! You can see it reflected on both books it's that shinny!
To be honest, I'm not sure about The Guy... I'm not going to read it straight away or put any hurry on it, but when the time comes, if I feel like reading it then I will, if not then I won't.









I saw the brilliant Gabbie Tozer last Sunday at (one of my fave bookstores) Your Bookshop in Bankstown! We had a great chat for a while with the owner of the bookshop and then she got to signing a whole heap of books. Loved getting to see Gabbie again and getting to meet the owner of Your Bookshop!

  1. Ohhh, The Girl at Midnight is so incredibly magical, I'm reading it at the moment and loving it. I'm doing the nail art competition too. Your nails will look fabulous compared to mine, I can barely cover inside the lines. Love Bomb is so bloody funny, I'm reading that as my secondary book at the moment too and it's just as funny as book one, Betty is so damn funny, and awkward. She reminds me of a young Josie from The Intern.Oh gosh, you and bulldozer could pass as sisters, you gorgeous things you!

    1. It is amazing isn't it! I'm surprised at how much I actually did love it. Urgh, they look horrible! I'm no artist using my hands, but the review and nail pic is coming soon :) I haven't read Love Bomb yet, but I'm going to save it for one of those moments when I get in the mood for a pick me up kind of book.

    1. She is so nice and funny! You should definitely take a trip up to Brisbane for some sort of author event so you get to meet authors! (ohh, maybe for Supanova?) Girl at Midnight and An Ember in the Ashes are both absolutely amazing!!! You MUST read them both!!

  3. Wow, that's pretty awesome that you bumped into an author in a bookstore! I don't think that's ever happened here in Brisbane lol. You got heaps of wonderful books this week, I love the first two covers and looking forward to The Girl At Midnight!
