I completely forgot about the fact that I owned a copy of The Graces until I was tidying my shelves up a few weeks ago. It was a book that was given to me as a Christmas gift, and one that I vowed to start reading only once my exams were over in the summer... but after reading the first few pages, I decided to retract my promise. The story just seemed too interesting to put down.

I'm taking part in another blog tour - yay! - and this time, it's for Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined by Danielle Younge-Ullman. I was sent a copy of the book by Scholastic UK in exchange for an honest review, and I ended up reading the novel in a day. On this particular day, I should have been revising (however, I'm going with the theory that reading is educational so I have nothing to feel guilty about, right?), but no matter how much I told myself I needed to do my college work and stop procrastinating, I just couldn't put the book down. I adored it.

Our Chemical Hearts is a book I couldn't resist buying when it was reduced to just 99p on the Kobo store. I'm usually someone who prefers buying books in paperback, but recently, I've been enjoying reading stories on my e-reader - and considering that I've now ran out of shelf space, it's so much more convenient!

Cathy Cassidy will always be my favourite childhood author. Her books helped shape my life growing up, and as cliché as it sounds, they taught me valuable lessons which I'll always be thankful for: friendship, holding onto hope, the ups and downs of family life, heartbreak, loss, love, and countless other things. At the age of nine, my sister handed me a copy of Indigo Blue, and I devoured the story within a day... and eight years later, it's still sitting proudly on my shelf, yellow paged and worn after re-reading it so many times.
I recently contacted Cathy and asked if she'd like to take part in a Q&A on my blog - and of course, being the extremely awesome and incredibly lovely person that she is, she said yes!
