Books I Loved in September:

Book of the MonthDark Inside by Jeyn Roberts.  I loved this book describing it as Apocalyptic awesomeness for horror fans! If that sounds like your kind of thing, then buy this book! You won't be disappointed!

Read my Review of: Dark Inside.
Read my Interview with: Jeyn Roberts.
I rated Dark Inside: 5 out of 5. A must read!

I also Loved: Velvet by Mary Hooper.  Stunning historical fiction depicting the spiritualist craze that swept Victorian and Edwardian England.

Read my Review of : Velvet.
I rated Velvet: 4½ out of 5. Very highly recommended!

What I'm reading now: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor and I gotta say DO believe the hype surrounding this one. You will get lost in Laini Taylor's beautiful words as she takes you on a journey to a fantastical world. I'll be reviewing this one next week and I'll be giving away a copy of the book too!



Win a copy of Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts!
I don't give 5 star ratings too often, so when I do I want to celebrate!


COMPETITION CLOSED! WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON!




My Top Picks for October:

Can you actually believe it's October tomorrow? September went by so fast!
October is not as crazy as September release wise (seriously September is a crazy month in book publishing. My TBR pile was insane!) October is nice and calm in that respect, but there are still some great releases upcoming that I can't wait to get to!


L-R: Angel Fire (Angel #2) by L.A. Weatherly, Between by Jessica Warman, Silence (Hush, Hush #3) by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Angel Fire by L.A. Weatherly

Angel was one of my favourite books of 2010 and now finally the sequel Angel Fire is here! Oh, and more news: there's a quote from my review of Angel in this one. Keep an eye out for it! :)

Angel Fire by L.A. Weatherly is available October 1st.

Between by Jessica Warman

Love the sound of this one! It's described as The Lovely Bones for the YA crowd and as a big fan of The Lovely Bones  I have high hopes for this one! The synopsis is awesome, as is the book trailer. You can watch the book trailer by seeking out my book trailer post (OK, I did it for you, it's here) or clicking on the blog tour banner in the sidebar.

Between by Jessica Warman is available October 3rd.


Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

The wait is almost over! After that killer cliffhanger ending in Crescendo I have been counting down the days to Silence.  But if you thought this was the last you'd see of Patch and Nora...then think again! Becca Fitzpatrick is writing a fourth Hush, Hush book. Yay!!

Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick is available October 4th.

If you can't wait you can read the first chapter: here
I haven't read this because I know if I do I will just want more!


Coming up on the blog in October:

Amongst other treats I will have... A giveaway of a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor...Blog tours for Angel Fire and Between and an interview with Amy Kathleen Ryan author of GLOW!

I'll also be organising some special spooky treats for Halloween!
