This month has been rough reading wise. I think that's because there's nothing on my TBR pile screaming for me to read it and because everything I desperately want to read hasn't found itself into my hands yet. This is a short list of the books I am currently lusting after.
Bluebell and her
siblings are beginning a new school year. Suddenly everyone is freaking
out. Twig has taken up violent team sports, poor Jas is being bullied by
the ghastly Cupcake Crew and Blue has a big decision to make.
are fights and crying fits. Halloween parades gone wrong and secret
graffiti artists. Confusing friendships and life-changing choices. But
there is also laughter and above all, there is love - and that's what
being a family is all about.
I love this series. They are just so sweet and I love the quirkiness of the entire family. I cannot wait to read more about them.
What's a girl gotta do? by Holly Bourne
Lottie's starting a
feminist experiment. She's going to call out every instance of sexism
she sees: leery builders, idiots at college, even her arrogant cameraman
Will (who's posting it all on YouTube). Then her project hits the
headlines and the trolls come out to play. But Lottie's not a girl who
gives up - even when her friends think she should.
Another series I adore. I cannot wait for this to be ready to read.

I adored book one last year. I cannot wait to see where this goes.
The Deviants by CJ Skuse
I know nothing at all about this book except for the fact that it's written by CJ. I want it. I want it lots.
