Title: Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Release: 13th March 2018
Synopsis: Asha Grant came to Kerenza to escape her past. Too bad he just caught up with her. Asha survived BeiTech’s initial assault and has been working undercover with the hopelessly outmatched resistance ever since. The last thing she expected to worry about was her ex-boyfriend, Rhys Lindstrom who just landed planetside. Is he her way out – or guarantee she never gets off this frozen rock alive?
But Asha’s not the only one with problems. Her cousin Kady’s ragtag band of survivors are headed for Kerenza – without enough oxygen to last the journey. Oh, and there might be an insurrection brewing. With BeiTech hurrying to repair their damaged jump gate, and a mass extermination planned for the Kerenza civilians, only a miracle could save them now. And everyone knows that miracles are just statistical probabilities…right?Review:
The thrilling conclusion to The Illuminae Files is here, it’s sure to leave you crying into your pillows in SO many ways.

I’m back with my second post on this wonderful Tuesday with a super exciting book tag! This tag was created by A Clockwork Reader and I saw it on Howling Libraries and thought it looked so fun!
I absolutely love Avatar, and I’ve never seen a tag like this before so I’m excited!
Katara and Sokka:
Best Sibling Relationship
I really love Mirabella’s relationship towards her sisters in Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake! I know it’s not ideal obviously, but her love for them when they don’t feel the same is just so lovely.

So June is over, which means that it’s time to look back and see how my intended TBR went – and if I actually did the unbelievable and stuck to my TBR!
If you don’t know what TBR it was – then I got my parents to choose my TBR last month from a section of categories I made up! You can find that post here: Parents Choose My TBR!
Here is my how my TBR went for June!
A classic book:
Mum – The Jungle Book
Dad – The Queen and I
Yay I managed to cross off both of these books! I’m so happy I managed to read them both as I really love The Jungle Book and my dad really wanted me to read The Queen and I! I loved both of them, but The Queen and I was definitely my favourite out of both!

I’m back with another tag – and a very fitting one at the moment! It’s summer in the UK at the moment, and we are in the middle of a heatwave! I don’t think the weather has been any cooler than like 15 degrees recently, with highs of over 30 degrees each day (SO BLOODY WARM FOR THE UK!), so this tag is perfect for right now!
I saw this on Lucy’s blog over at That Book Gal and thought it looked so fun – please go check her blog out it is wonderful!
Let’s talk about some summer books whilst I melt in the heat!
What book cover makes you think of summer?
Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles. I don’t know why it does, but I think the bright colours just really captivate me and remind me of summer!

Title: All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis
Release: 12th July 2018
Synopsis: Speth has been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt, and can’t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she’s unable to afford. But when Speth’s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family’s crippling debt, she can’t express her shock and dismay. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again in protest at the unjust rules of the land. Speth’s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family and the entire city around them.Review:
What if you had to pay for every word you spoke? What if silence was your biggest weapon?
