I haven't been buying many books the last few weeks, as I have so many to go through but I did buy one and swap one.  Here's a little photo for you all to see. 

In order of appearance of photo.

I have started The Body Finder, only a few pages in so I couldn't tell you what it's like so far but I have heard so many great things about the book. 
If you've read the books, I'd love to hear what you thought? Leave me a little comment below.

Books to look out for in April

Here are a few books we thought you should all look out for this April :)

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
Release Date: April 26th

The Blurb: Every girl who has taken the test has died.  Now it's Kate's turn. 

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall. 

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests. 

Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.  If she fails..

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Release Date: April 5th

The Blurb: “City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.”

Jessica's Book

A little bit of different news now. After being inspired by so many books that she's read. Jess has decided to give book writing a try. She has no name for the book yet. She is currently in the process of writing chapter two in her main characters journey. 

Here's a little about it (but not much) ;) Its set in a fictional town in England called Lakewood where we meet 17 year old Cassie Drake, she goes to a private school with her two best friends Jack and Ava. Cassie is have reoccurring dreams of running through a forest. But who is she being chased by?

I've actually read some of the book so far - and I LOVE IT! Keep up the good work Jess!

OOO I can't wait to see what your blog will look like. I'm going to be super jealous.

I have need and the body finder. I have the first two in the need series. Haven't read them yet though.

Exciting news Jessica, I attempted writing once but I don't think I'm too good at it.
