Read Your Bookshelfathon (#RYBSAT) Readathon TBR - Round 5

Readathon time again! I'm participating in the Read Your Bookshelf-A-Thon (#RYBSAT) this coming week - 18-24 May 2015. The aim of this readathon is to pick a position on your bookshelves and then read as far from that point as you can during the week. I'm aiming to complete 15 hours of reading, finish 3-4 books and complete some more books from my TBR pile.

Let me know if you're participating too :-)

Blood Red Road | Post-Apocalyptic, Sci-Fi, Dust Lands Setting Book Review

Blood Red Road by Moira Young

The Dust Lands #1

Age Group: Young Adult
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic/Science Fiction/Dystopia
Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when four cloaked horsemen capture Lugh, Saba's world is shattered, and she embarks on a quest to get him back.    

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the outside world, Saba discovers she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba’s unrelenting search for Lugh stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.

It's the start of May so it's time for my TBR for the month. After starting and failing to finish a number of books in April, I've brought over a load to continue to read.

Here's my video talking about all my To Be Read books for May.

April Reading Wrap-Up

Hi fellow readers.
I hope you are well and had a lovely reading month in April.

Unfortunately I had a little bit of a weird reading month myself and I started so many different books but only finished a few.

Here's my reading wrap-up video which talks about the books I read and the one's I've started but not yet finished.

Enjoy :-)

UKYA Recommends | #UKYADAY

Today is officially #UKYADAY which has been created and hosted by the wonderful Lucy from Queen of Contemporary (blog) & LucytheReader (youtube). There is a whole host of amazing liveshows, Q&As, giveaways and so much more happening throughout the day - check out the full schedule.

I was contacted by Lucy a couple of weeks ago, who expressed her wish to broaden the awareness of UKYA and the amazing books that are written by UKYA authors, so I thought I'd help out in my own way by creating a UKYA Recommends video with 5 books I really enjoyed and highly recommend to you.

Enjoy the video :-)
