It's been too long for my liking. Not just with blogging but with reading as well. Everything has been put on the back burner as I've been adjusting to A Level life which is a lot harder that I first anticipated. I've disappointed myself with the lack of blogging and reading I've been doing and so to hopefully spark a reading marathon, I bought a small mountain of books that I thought I'd share with you to get me back in the swing of things.

There have been a few books I've been eyeing up on Amazon for a while that all seem like my kind of easy-rad contemporary to refuel my book love starting with Just One Day by Gayle Forman. It's been a while since I've read a Gayle Forman book and, seeing as though I loved every book I've read of hers, I thought this was a safe bet. It's about about a day in Paris and so obviously a love story is involved and so a book I can't wait t read.

Way To Live Forever by Sally Nicholls was a book I read when I was 12 and I remember it being one of those books that opened me up into the world of reading that wasn't all joy and puppies? I remember this being one of the first books I balled my eyes out to and, after realising I'd lost it, I thought I'd best repurchase and reread it as well.

After seeing Cait from PaperFury review Extraordinary Means by Roybn Schneider and being an author I've wanted to check out for a while, I picked this up and I have actually already read this and I loved it! It's centred around a boarding school for sick teens and Lane who's being sent there to be treated. It's about his time there, making friends and falling in love.

Tape by Steve Camden is one I know I'm going to enjoy with the synopsis sounding like something I'd love and also having a slightly similarly idea to what I wanted in my very own book. It follows two story lines of Ameliah is 2013 and Ryan in 1993. Ryan records his feelings on tapes and when Ameliah finds them, she really connects to them.

The last book I ordered from Amazon was The Martian by Andy Weir. I've been wanting to buy this book for months even before the film was announced to release. It's been a while since then and the movie is now out and yet I've still not read the book so what better time than now to read it so I can experience the book as well as experience the gorgeous Matt Damon on the film screen.

Annabel Pitcher is an author I loved back in high school and always wished she'd bring out new books and so when The Book People had her newly released hardback, Silence is Goldfish, for just £4, I got very excited and had to pick it up quickly. Her synopsis are always quite mysterious and this one is now different so I'm excited to find out what this book really is about. 

The last back I was sent and the story line really interested me: Zeroes by Scott Westfield and others. Scott Westfield wrote the famous Uglies series which I sadly missed out in my childhood (but still might pick up) so reading this gives me a look into his writing style. The storyline feels so unique being about six former friends with extraordinary power. After Ethan aka Scam gets caught up in a bank robbery, the other Zeroes come to help. It's unlike anything read before and, so far, it's very action packed. I look forward to reporting back on this one.

Hopefully these books will encourage me to get reading again and make enough time for blogging again,
Hope you're doing great,
