Out In the Wild

Hi Guys!

Here is a new slot I'm doing for the blog, you can probably guess what it is from the title there, but in case you can't, here's the run down. It's basically a post full of pictures of various books out in the wild! *ta-da!* I'll try and post one every few weeks or so and here is this weeks. Enjoy...

Here is shot of one of our displays in the Teen section. It's our Thrills and Chills bay and there are soooooo many good books on it. If you're looking for something exciting to read this summer, this is the place to look! You will notice a few of our monthly books on there too, we have been going through an action phase as of late and this will continue in July with The 5th Wave....

ACID by Emma Pass: Review by Rosie Caveney

The awesome cover for ACID
Hey. How you doin’?

Okey dokey, this is my first ever post on this blog (*Cue glitter cannons and spontaneous combustion*) and I’m kind of nervous about the fact that I’m writing something  that other real, live, breathing humans can read. Also, the music that I’m listening to is kind of dramatic/tense/awesome which probably doesn’t help.

Moving on! I’m going to review ‘Acid’ by Emma Pass, which I read quite recently.

Wasted by Nicola Morgan

Hello! So this is my first post on this blog and a lot of thought has gone into which book I should review first. So I chose a book that really made me think about how chance affects the events of our lives.

The boy follows the story of Jack, who is obsessed with luck, and Jess, a singer who changes Jack’s life. They were bought together through chance, but luck doesn't last forever.

Book Club June 2013

Hi there guys!!

We recently had out one year anniversary here at the #YABluewater blog, that means out book club has been meeting for one year!! *glitter canons*

To celebrate this we decided to chose an entire series of book, rather than just a single title. The series that held this honor was none other that The Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness.

Um, hello! It's is my first ever blog/post/book review on the Internet thingie! (Insert yay's, whoo's and Go

Zoe Marriott's The Night Itself Video!!!

Hi there everybody! *awaits reply*

Today's post is going to be a bit different from the norm. I will be making a separate post about last night's book club meet an a day or so, for now though I have something amazing to share! :D

A While ago the lovely people asked me and a few other bloggers if we wanted advanced proofs of Zoe's new book, The Night Itself. Ummm YES PLEASE!!!! All we had to do was make a short video. To be honest, Hannah could have asked me to chew off my right arm and I would have done so for a copy of this book!! We each were given a section to read out and the whizz team at walker have turned our snippets into this video.
