It’s April tomorrow which means it’s less than two weeks until I’m 21! That’s amazing and so scary! What better way to say goodbye to my last full month of being 20 than by buying WAY too many books??? Because that’s what I did! Let’s get into it…
I am in awe about the amount of books I received this month! Thank you to the lovely authors and publishers for sending these my way, it’s such an honour!
Title: Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
I’ve actually already read this and I absolutely ADORED IT. Amanda Foody is amazing!
Synopsis: Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school―and her reputation―behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives unchanged. Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected―he’s a street lord and con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems. Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless society. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her family, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city… And she’ll need to play the game.

Title: Sneaking Out by Chuck Vance
Release: 6th March 2018
Synopsis: Luke Chase–yes, that Luke Chase, a modern hero ripped from the headlines–didn’t mean to get caught up in Mrs. Heckler’s murder. He just wanted to hook up with the hot new British girl at St. Benedict’s, and if that meant sneaking out to the woods after hours, then so be it. But little did he know someone would end up dead right next to their rendezvous spot, and his best friend and roommate Oscar Weymouth would go down for it. With suspects aplenty and a past that’s anything but innocent, Luke Chase reluctantly calls on his famous survival skills to find the true killer.
A murder mystery to keep you up at night, this is a wonderful debut from an author that is definitely here to stay.

So if you’ve been on my blog for longer than 10 minutes you’ll know that I absolutely ADORE Stephen King and everything he does, and although I’ve not seen a lot of the adaptations he’s created, I have seen some brilliant ones so I thought I’d share some of my favourites!
I saw this movie (the original!) quite a while back, and for someone who is absolutely terrified of clowns, I’m impressed I managed to get through it! I did however absolutely love it, and it’s terrifying Pennywise – Tim Curry is so brilliant! I loved the book, and could watch this film so much, it’s brilliant!

I’m back once again with a new Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Let’s get into it!Weekly News Update:
I STARTED MY NEW JOB OFFICIALLY! It has been so exciting and scary but I’m loving it so much. I’ve done so much overtime already, I’m in desperate need for sleep!

Title: The Fireman by Joe Hill
Release: 7th June 2016
Synopsis: Nobody knew where the virus came from.
FOX News said it had been set loose by ISIS, using spores that had been invented by the Russians in the 1980s. MSNBC said sources indicated it might’ve been created by engineers at Halliburton and stolen by culty Christian types fixated on the Book of Revelation. CNN reported both sides.
While every TV station debated the cause, the world burnt. Pregnant school nurse, HARPER GRAYSON, had seen lots of people burn on TV, but the first person she saw burn for real was in the playground behind the school.
A brilliantly suspenseful novel focusing on the impact of the world turning against you, and the terrifying knowledge that you could burn alive at any time.
