UKYA Book Blogger Secret Santa: The Gifts!

The lovely Lynsey of Narratively Speaking set up a Secret Santa especially for the UKYA book bloggers and of course I had to take part!

About a week ago, I sent off my package and then I received mine on Monday morning! Look at the beauties that I got:


Wild Roses by Deb Caletti

Here is something you need to know about me. I’m not a Hallmark card, ooh ah romance, Valentine-y love kind of person...

When Cassie meets her stepfather’s latest protégé she is irresistibly attracted to the boy on a bike with a dog called Rocket.

Ian Waters is a musical genius, like Cassie’s stepfather, Dino Cavalli. He is talented, gorgeous and funny, and Cassie’s starry-eyed and swept away. But she knows if Dino finds out the sky might as well fall in...

A bittersweet, star-spangled, completely compelling tale from the author of Honey, Baby, Sweetheart.


Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I have a curse.
I have a gift.

I’m a monster.
I’m more than human.

My touch is lethal.
My touch is power.

I am their weapon.
I will fight back.

No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she’s finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time – and to find a future with the one boy she thought she’d lost forever.

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a riveting dystopian world, a thrilling superhero story and an unforgettable heroine.


Scrabble Fridge Magnets AKA testing my (limited) vocabulary

Paperchase Post-It Notes AKA going to be EVERYWHERE

Rose Heart Candle AKA *sniff* Aahhhh

A big thank you to Sya who was my Secret Santa and to Lynsey for taking on such a mammoth task with this!
