AMBER’S QUESTIONS:

1. Why did you create your blog?

I had a blog for a couple of years prior to starting this one (you can find it here!) where I posted about personal issues, and also tried to help others going through similar things. Then I started my university degree in Journalism and realised I absolutely ADORED talking about books and reading, which I had loved since I was little, so thought I could combine the two in a new blog – then Between the Pages was born!

Title: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

I WON A COMPETITION RAN BY VICTORIA AND MANAGED TO GET AN ARC OF THIS. IS THIS REAL LIFE???? I am still not okay after this, it is BEAUTIFUL.

Synopsis: Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn’t like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead . . . and enter the world of spirits. Her best friend is even a ghost. So things are already pretty strange. But they’re about to get much stranger. When Cass’s parents start hosting a TV show about the world’s most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets a girl who shares her “gift,” she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil — and herself. And she’ll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined. Continue reading “June 2018 Book Haul!”

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I really enjoyed Red Rising when I read it a couple of years ago, I thought it was super interesting. However I’ve had SO many chances to pick up the next books in the series, and it just never took my fancy so I don’t think I’ll carry it on!

BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2018?

Okay so in true Meggan style I MAY or may not be cheating for this question and choosing three of my favourite books….PLEASE HOW CAN I CHOOSE JUST ONE BOOK???

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – WHAT A DEBUT NOVEL OH MY LORD. I couldn’t put this down the entire time I read it and I am still shook over it. I need book two now! Find my review here!

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur – Mariam bought me this for my birthday and I am in love. So many poems stood out to me, and I tabbed some of my favourites, and let’s say I TABBED NEARLY EVERYTHING. I am so so in love.

Satellite by Nick Lake – I read this at the start of the year and absolutely adored it. It honestly made me cry so much and was one of the most beautiful books I’ve read. The Martian for YA – read my review here!

Fated by Benedict Jacka // Review


Title: Fated by Benedict Jacka

Rating: ★★★★

Release: 1st March 2012

Synopsis: Camden, North London. A tangled, mangled junction of train lines, roads and waterways. Where minor celebrities hang out with minor criminals and where tourists and moody teenagers mingle. 
In the heart of Camden, where rail meets road meets leyline, you might find the Arcana Emporium, run by one Alex Verus. He won’t sell you a wand or mix you a potion, but if you know what you’re looking for, he might just be able to help. That’s if he’s not too busy avoiding his would-be apprentice, foiling the Dark, outwitting the Light, and investigating a mysterious relic that has just turned up at the British Museum.

If you loved Harry Dresden, then welcome to the world of Alex Verus. Dangerous, fun and most definitely magical.

THE RULES:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you for this tag and link to their blog.

  3. Mention the songs as well as the artists.
  4. Tag 7 people or more to do this tag and please let them know!

The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X. R. Pan // Review


Title: The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X. R. Pan

Rating: ★★★★

Release: 20th March 2018

Synopsis: Leigh Chen Sanders is sixteen when her mother dies by suicide, leaving only a scribbled note: ‘I want you to remember’. Leigh doesn’t know what it means, but when a red bird appears with a message, she finds herself travelling to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time. Leigh is far away from home and far away from Axel, her best friend, who she stupidly kissed on the night her mother died – leaving her with a swell of guilt that she wasn’t home, and a heavy heart, thinking she may have destroyed the one good thing left in her life. Overwhelmed by grief, Leigh retreats into her art and into her memories, where colours collide and the rules of reality are broken. The only thing Leigh is certain about is that she must find out the truth. She must remember.divider-2461548_1280Review:

A beautiful and honest book focusing on the struggles of coping with loss, and the belief that there is more to life after death.

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo // Review


Title: To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Rating: ★★★★

Release: 6th March 2018

Synopsis: With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most – a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever. The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavoury hobby – it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good. But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?divider-2461548_1280Review:

A brilliant Little Mermaid retelling that will make you want to fall in love with your very own Prince!
