Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger. She wakes from a coma in hospital with no memory of how she got there or of the bizarre accident that caused the deaths of her best friends and her boyfriend, yet left her mysteriously unharmed.

The doctors suggest that starting over in a new city, a new school, would be good for her and just to let the memories gradually come back on their own. But Mara's new start is anything but comforting. She sees the faces of her dead friends everywhere, and when she suddenly begins to see other people's deaths right before they happen, Mara wonders whether she's going crazy!

And if dealing with all this wasn't enough, Noah Shaw, the most beautiful boy she has ever seen can't seem to leave her alone...but as her life unravels around her, Mara can't help but wonder if Noah has another agenda altogether.


Top Ten Bookish Problems

10:25 AM

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
Well I haven't done one of these in a very long time and as all the posts I am currently working on are going to take a while I thought I would do a quick Top Ten Tuesday to keep you all with posts to read! This weeks is Top Ten Bookish Problems! So lets get started.

1. Buying more books when you already have 834832492094 to read. - we all know we are guilty of this one.

2. Getting into a comfortable reading position - Sometimes I feel like I should take up gymnastics of some kind from the weird and wonderful positions I get my body into

3. Slumps - Lets face it we all get into reading slumps and it's a pain in the arse when you do, I JUST WANT TO READ GOD DAMMIT.

4. Having more than one edition of a book because you HAD to have the pretty cover - Yep, I know I do.

5.  That feeling when you finish a book and you loved it so much you just look for all the merch to fill the void - I've done this with the book thief recently, I now own a book thief phone case and bag as well as a sticker on my laptop.


Book Review: The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney (Janie Johnson #1)

No one ever really paid close attention to the faces of the missing children on the milk cartons. But as Janie Johnson glanced at the face of the ordinary little girl with her hair in tight pigtails, wearing a dress with a narrow white collar—a three-year-old who had been kidnapped twelve years before from a shopping mall in New Jersey—she felt overcome with shock. She recognized that little girl—it was she. How could it possibly be true?

Janie can't believe that her loving parents kidnapped her, but as she begins to piece things together, nothing makes sense. Something is terribly wrong. Are Mr. and Mrs. Johnson really her parents? And if not, who is Janie Johnson, and what really happened?


Website Review: OuchBodyJewellery

1:00 AM

Something a bit different for you! If you didn't know I have my helix pierced which is the top part of my ear, I have it pierced in a way so that hoops suit it better than studs as this is what I loved and have always wanted, though I do have some studs and they can look okay it's quite hard to see the stud. Anyway, as when I first got my helix pierced all I had was the circular barbell which he pierced the ear with, and as the size of the hole is 1.2mm it meant that none of my ordinary earrings would be able to go in. So I scoured the internet for some websites and found ouchbodyjewellery and decided to make an order, I wanted to share my experience with you all so that you can make a decision as to whether or not to order from this website but I have to say, I'm impressed.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tyngas Reviews
Well I haven't done a stacking the shelves since I told you what I got for Christmas! So I think that it was about time that I tell you what I have been buying recently, and there has been a certain store that I have been incredibly obsessed with! The store is wolfgang vintage which is a store associated with instagram where she has flash sales of old/rare/vintage and sometimes new books! She's incredibly reliable, based in America and you have to grab the book first before its gone! I highly recommend checking her out.

In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical twenty-two year old girl. She’s finally landed her own apartment, she waitresses to pay the bills, and she wishes she wasn’t so nervous around new people. She thinks of herself as agile, not skittish. As serious, not grim. But Reeve is anything but normal.

Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she’s spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim—she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.


Lookbook Loves #1

4:00 AM

Happy February! Hope you all had a good start to the year, I have to admit I haven't had a good 2015 so far, but the only way is up, right? I decided to start the month with a fashion feature! So I'm slightly new into the whole fashion game but for the past few years I've just really loved clothes. I think it came along with my new found confidence as before I just wore tshirts and jeans - now I'm experimenting with skirts/dresses/crop tops and more! I wanted to bring fashion into my blog so I decided that I would show some of the outfits on lookbook that I've really loved recently! I don't claim to own any of these, but I thought it would be a little bit of inspiration. I'm not sure how often I will do this but I thought it was a bit different.
