Are we all lemmings and snowflakes? By Holly Bourne

“Welcome to Camp Reset, a summer camp with a difference. A place offering a shot at “normality” for Olive, a girl on the edge, and for the new friends she never expected to make – who each have their own reasons for being there. Luckily Olive has a plan to solve all their problems. But how do you fix the world when you can’t fix yourself?”

My reading challenge: New author

Hi everyone! So I decided to start something a little different on my blog today. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will know I used to take part in the blogger book nook. However, Abbey made the decision that July’s prompt would be the last. Although I enjoyed being a part of the group and taking part each month, I understand why Abbey made this decision.

You know me well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour

“Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed.

That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

Floored by Holly Bourne, Sara Barnard, Lisa Williamson, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Tanya Byrne and Eleanor Wood

“When they got in the lift, they were strangers (though didn’t that guy used to be on TV?): Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he’s the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means when you hear her name and it doesn’t match the way she looks, or the way she talks; Dawson, who was on TV, but isn’t as good-looking as he was a few years ago and is desperately hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who’s losing her sight but won’t admit it, and who used to have a poster of Dawson on her bedroom wall, and Joe, who shouldn’t be here at all, but who wants to be here the most.

Blogger book nook #11: Magic Kingdom

Hi everyone! Welcome to another book nook post. I can’t believe the group will be a year old next month! I’ve only officially done 10 as I missed last October’s but I’ve enjoyed being part of the group since the beginning. If you don’t know what the blogger book nook is, it is a book club created by Abbey and Tabitha where they choose a prompt each month that allows us to choose a book based on that prompt along with a Q&A based on the prompt. This month’s prompt is fantasy and I had flip-flopped on what I wanted to read but I eventually settled on Sunflowers in February by Phyllida Shrimpton.

“Evie, Amber and Lottie are having a new year party to remember. For the first time since leaving college, all three girls are back together. It’s time for fun and flirting, snogs and shots.
