Sequels are always risky, but especially in YA. There have been so many promising starts to series that just completely fizzle out after a disappointing follow-up book. I’m happy to report that The Rose Society exceeded my expectations, and I actually enjoyed it more than The Young Elites. The plot was more exciting, the world building more impressive, and the characters somehow managed to get even more complex!
Help! Can anyone recommend an affordable YA book subscription box? Ideally, I’d like a box that includes books and some other fun little bookish items. A really cool one I saw was on UpperCase Box, but unfortunately, they don’t ship out with the US and Canada 😦
I didn’t even know these were a thing until I saw one on Instagram an hour ago, but I’ve now become completely obsessed with the idea of getting my hands on one! Annoyingly, most of the ones that I’m finding are either really expensive or they don’t ship to the UK. Please let me know if you have any idea where I could find a great option!
Hey guys, I’ve just created an instagram account for my blog where I’ll post book related pics (pretty covers, quotes, etc). You can find me as @whatemmasreading .
I’m currently looking for bookish accounts to follow, so please comment with your username or follow me on @whatemmasreading and I’ll follow you back. I’d also love some recommendations of other accounts to follow!
See you over on instagram😘
The Young Elites is one of those books I’ve always seen everyone raving about on Goodreads, but never got round to reading myself. I’m always quite wary when starting a YA series that has a lot of hype behind it, as the majority of the time I end up disappointed. However, when I spotted the trilogy on sale I decided to bite the bullet and see what all the fuss is about.
Oh my god.
That’s honestly what I said aloud once finished this book. You guys know that it’s rare that I’m surprised by a thriller, but Behind Her Eyes managed to completely shock me. This is one of those books that you immediately want to make everyone read, and watch their reaction whilst they read it.
After four years of non-stop hard work and stress, I finally graduated yesterday with first-class honours! I had such a lovely day celebrating with my family and uni friends, and feel really proud of what I’ve achieved. I’m even prouder that I managed not to fall over on the stage though!
The Scoundrel’s Honor is the sequel to The Rogue’s Wager, which I reviewed yesterday. Even though I didn’t enjoy the first book that much, I still wanted to read book two, A) because Ryker was an interesting character in the first, and B) I’m nosey and hate not knowing how things end up. Thankfully, I found The Scoundrel’s Honor a much more entertaining read.
