“You don’t have to believe in ghosts for the dead to haunt you.

You don’t have to be a murderer to be guilty.

Within six months of Pen Sheppard starting university, three of her new friends are dead. Only Pen knows the reason why.

College life had seemed like a wonderland of sex, drugs and maybe even love. The perfect place to run away from your past and reinvent yourself. But Pen never can run far enough and when friendships are betrayed, her secrets are revealed. The consequences are deadly.”

🍁🍂 September TBR Wrap-up!🍃🍂

Hello!!

Last month I set myself a goal of reading 5 books that I recently brought when splurging at Dymocks. Last month I only got around to reading one full book and three quarters of another. This was mainly due to being very busy at Uni with assessments and what not. I’m disappointed really that I didn’t get to read the books I told myself I would read last month, so this month I’m going to just give myself 3 books, just so I can achieve this goal during the October month.

The books that I read fully was ‘Ugly Love’ by Colleen Hoover (Book Review can be found here!). This books was a little disappointing to me, It was very hyped up so when I brought it I was trusting all the reviews of this book from either bookstagram or goodreads and didn’t end up reading the blurb, so I had no clue what it was about until I opened it up and started reading (yeah I know, I’m a bit silly). Don’t get me wrong, parts of this book made me laugh and smile like a weirdo when I read it, but it was just a little confusing and in certain parts I just wanted to scream at the characters because they got on my nerves. However, I did rate this book a 4/5 stars and I do recommend that you read it, however read the blurb and see if you like that first!!

The second book I’m still reading is ‘The Assassins Blade’ by Sarah J. Maas. This book is good so far, however I’m getting really distracted whilst reading it. I only end up reading a few chapters then leaving it (this would be mainly because I have been hooked on the series ‘Tomorrow when the war began’ by John Marsden and seriously can’t put it down right now) However this book has been pretty good. I love the characters, especially Sam, like seriously *insert love heart eyes emoji here* and the main characters is also quite an awesome character. A full book review will be published later when I finish the book (which hopefully won’t be too long)

Thank you for reading!

Octobers TBR will be up on my blog very soon (hopefully tomorrow!)

Book Review: Ugly Love – Colleen Hoover

51SUqssIb2L

 “When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up.

He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her. Never ask about the past. Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all. Hearts get infiltrated. Promises get broken. Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly
.”

Book Review: Everything, Everything – By Nicola Yoon

18692431

“My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.”
