Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

What Should I Read Next? (2)

Once a month you get to choose a book I read this month. I love getting your suggestions and seeing which books you think I would like. There will be a poll on my sidebar where you can vote.

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1)Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies – or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world...and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift, but now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer – and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling in love, Violet is getting closer to discovering a killer...and becoming his prey herself.

The Sky Is EverywhereSeventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey
dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life—and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in
town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.

This remarkable debut is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Francesca Lia Block. Just as much a celebration of love as it is a portrait of loss, Lennie’s struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is always honest, often hilarious, and ultimately unforgettable.

RevolutionBROOKLYN: Andi Alpers is on the edge. She’s angry at her father for leaving, angry at her mother for not being able to cope, and heartbroken by the loss of her younger brother, Truman. Rage and grief are destroying her. And she’s about to be expelled from Brooklyn Heights’ most prestigious private school when her father intervenes. Now Andi must accompany him to Paris for winter break.

PARIS: Alexandrine Paradis lived over two centuries ago. She dreamed of making her mark on the Paris stage, but a fateful encounter with a doomed prince of France cast her in a tragic role she didn’t want—and couldn’t escape.

Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when Andi finds Alexandrine’s diary, she recognizes something in her words and is moved to the point of obsession. There’s comfort and distraction for Andi in the journal’s antique pages—until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs of Paris, Alexandrine’s words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes suddenly, terrifyingly present.

Jennifer Donnelly, author of the award-winning novel A Northern Light, artfully weaves two girls’ stories into one unforgettable account of life, loss, and enduring love. Revolution spans centuries and vividly depicts the eternal struggles of the human heart.

Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, #1)Everyone has something to hide—especially high school juniors Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna.

Spencer covets her sister's boyfriend. Aria's fantasizing about her English teacher. Emily's crushing on the new girl at school. Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful.

But they've all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished.
How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were, the naughty girls they are, and all the dirty secrets they've kept. And guess what? I'm telling.

If you have any suggestions that are not listed above you can post them in the comments section. I'd love to hear them :)


  1. I read The Body Finder and enjoyed it a lot. Even though there's a sequel, this one can be read as a standalone.

    Pretty Little Liars are my guilty pleasure. There's a lot I don't like about them, but I can't help reading them! Each book ends on a huge cliffhanger though, so once you start you're not going to want to stop until you've read them all (or at least the first four, there's a little bit of a break there).

  2. I've heard good things about it. I really can't wait to read it.

    Yeah, I think I'll feel the same. These types of things are so addictive. I've bought the first four so I'll be able to read and read and read :)

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Out of everything on the list that I have read, I would pick Revolution. Its just REALLY REALLY long... but still a good read.

  5. I won Revolution a few months ago and have yet to read it. The premise looks really interesting.

  6. Oooooh, you have some good books here! Two of these were on my Best of 2010 list. Revolution is amazing, but this time I will be voting for TBF because it's about time you met the wonder that is Jay Heaton! Enjoy!

  7. Thanks for the advice. Even if The Body Finder doesn't win I think I will have to read it soon!!

  8. I've not read any of these, but I'm partial to "The Sky is Everywhere" based soley on the summaries above.

  9. I do love the premise of The Sky is Everywhere. It sounds very interesting.

  10. I just started the Body Finder today and i gotta say.... its great! i love it so far! Derting adds a creep factor to her story by allowing us to see inside the killers mind. its actually pretty awesome! oh and did i mention Jay!? you'll LOVE him! I dont know if you've made ur decision already, but my vote would definitely go to The Body Finder ;)

  11. I'm so glad you like it. It definitely seems right up my street. I love all these crime sort of programmes but I have never read a book about stuff like this so it should be really interesting! I like the sound of Jay already ;) Body Finder is in the lead at the moment with only 6 days to go. It is SO close though!
