My super awesome finds this week!

Vampire Academy – Blood Promise

I’ve been researching this series as it’s right down my street! This is book 4 of a 6 book series, and I look forward to completing my collection so I can begin to read them. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this series and I’m glad it’s one of my first “lost words” finds.

The Book of You

Another great find to add to my collection. Eek!! A psychological thriller! Hope I can handle this one, not my usual pick but I must broaden my horizons! Sounds pretty gripping, though, I read the synopsis and I think I’ll give it a go. I’ll have to let you know how it goes with a review when I’ve read it.

So happy about this find, I feel slightly guilty not having it in my collection already! I have read it, and it is a beautifully written novel….. have so much love for Jane Austen. A pure classic I’m sure is loved by many.

So, that’s all for this week! Can’t wait to see what I could across ready for next Wednesday!!
