Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess with shining, golden hair…
If life were a fairy tale, Oribella Bettencourt would have a “happily ever after” kind of future ahead of her. A Hollywood producer has come to Des Moines in search of a perfectly modern Princess Rapunzel, and Ori - a model, dancer, and a star of the beauty pageant circuit - lands the part. And why shouldn’t she? With her hard-working, self-sacrificing mother guiding her career, Ori is stunning, dedicated, poised…and then there’s her hair. Breathtakingly lustrous blond hair that sets her apart from all the other girls at school. So what if she doesn’t have any friends her age, or anyone to talk to other than her mother? She’s on the verge of having everything she’s ever dreamed of.
But in this fairy tale, the beautiful princess wakes up to her worst nightmare - when almost overnight, Ori begins to lose her hair…
Thank you to Jan for sending me this and signing it. It looks great!
In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent.
And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth.
But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future - between the one she loves and the one who loves her.
And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death?
This has finally been released in the UK so I can see what all the fuss was about!
Am I jealous that my best friend has a boyfriend? Does that mean I’m tragic??? Is my current hair colour (melody deep plum) better than that dodgy custard colour I tried out last week? Perhaps I should go out with Gareth Stingecombe - even though I don’t fancy him the least tiniest bit. If I don’t fancy Gareth Stingecombe the tiniest bit, why am I obsessing about his manly thighs?
This is a book about all the important questions in life. It’s definitely not about sitting in my wardrobe or having a mental disturbance of any kind…
Thanks to Hayley’s agent, Hayley, for sending me this. It sounds like such a fun book.

This unforgettable novel is sure to shock and amaze. Constantly shifting from beauty to horror, darkness to light, Tender Morsels will take you to the very edge.
This sounds very weird and I think that it might be adult, but I’ll give it go anyway. Even though I absolutely hate the cover!
