So excited to host my first stop for the YA Shot blog tour! I’m excited to host Matt Whyman, who is one of my favourite people and the author of the amazing books, The Savages and American Savage. Matt was super enthusiastic and answered all our questions and a special one on libraries, who are the main beneficiaries of YA Shot!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish to show off our book-related lists!

I know this isn’t the topic you expected this week (sorry I’m a week late), but I can never pass up the opportunity to highlight my top reads of the year so far. So much so that I’ve had to cheat a little and grouped several series in here as one pick. So here you have my top ten fourteen books for 2014 so far (which by the way, just made total sense):

Blog Tour, Interview / May 25, 2014

Countdown Button

When Jim first sent around an email asking which authors we wanted to interview, my response was something along the lines of: ‘MATT WHYMAN, MATT WHYMAN, MATT WHYMAN’.

Thankfully my subtlety worked, so here is my back and forth interview with the lovely, lovely Matt Whyman.

Another woeful performance from my Winter TBR list, where I only managed to read 2 out of 10 books. Here’s hoping that Spring is more productive!

These books were pushed on me by three good friends. After I lent Caitlin Vicious, she bought, read and loved The Archived by Victoria Schwab as well, so I’m really thrilled to get a chance to read it. Splintered is one book that Faye won’t stop going on about, and its sequel Unhinged, which was released recently was also just as good.

Thanks guys for the great recs!

This one was a TOUGH one because I think approximately 94.1% of all the books I read are part of a series, as is the trend with YA. However, I have read some stand alone books and boy, do I end up craving sequels. Guess I’m just used to them, and I feel a bit spoiled like that. Without further ado, here are my:
