Morning all! 

Happy Father's Day to everyone who is celebrating today! 

How has your week been? Its been a busy week for us...lol Seems Jess just started reading The Iron Fey, we have spent most of the week discussing who gets Ash (I know, everyone wants him) but....YES! I won but of course, he gets a day off so Jess gets him on a Sunday. ;) Lol Such geeks! lol

Anyway.....here are the reviews for the week: 

Jess has finished Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs but she will be posting her review on July 8th, in time for the UK blog tour for the book.

Donna's IMM hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren


Swapped Books:

Brought Kindle:
I've heard so many good things about this books by UK bloggers over the last few days so I thought I'd try them....well...for 69p each off Amazon, who can say no.

For Review: 
Thank you Galley Grab and Jessica Sorensen

Swag: 


The author (Victoria) of The Near Witch was actually just giving away loads of bookmarks a few weeks ago and whoever wanted one all you had to do was email her. So I did and they arrived today. They look fab! 

I probably going to donate them to the blog or the UK or EU Hop. Not sure yet. Lol 

Its a shame I never got around to reading this book; I did have it off Netgalley but I just couldn't find the time. I'm sure I'll buy it when it comes out.  Check out the authors blog: http://www.victoriaschwab.com/

Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
Yep that's it from me!

The all look great but I'm most interested in hearing what you think of The Fallen Star. I've not come across that one before.

I hope you enjoy Flawless. I just finished it earlier this week. It was a nice, quick summer read :)
