Can't wait to read

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.

Time for Jas by Natasha Farrant

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.

There 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.

The Last Beginning by Lauren James

The epic conclusion to Lauren James' debut The Next Together about love, destiny and time travel.

Sixteen years ago, after a scandal that rocked the world, teenagers Katherine and Matthew vanished without a trace. Now Clove Sutcliffe is determined to find her long lost relatives. But where do you start looking for a couple who seem to have been reincarnated at every key moment in history? Who were Kate and Matt? Why were they born again and again? And who is the mysterious Ella, who keeps appearing at every turn in Clove's investigation?

For Clove, there is a mystery to solve in the past and a love to find in the future.

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.
