Do you ever judge a book by its cover??? YES? Well, today we’ll be judging books by their first chapters!
You might have heard of the Penguin Teen Game Changers set which contains 5 books that have been releases by Penguin back to back for 5 consecutive weeks!
If you’re like me, you’ve probably cried of jealousy when you saw all the big Booktubers receiving this box set and getting to read all these books early on.
All of the books in the set are out now and you’ve most likely read some of them! I HAVEN’T which is why I requested to read samples of these books to see what I think of them based on their first chapters!
Will I like what I read and then go on to purchase the book? Will I hate it so much that I will want to yell at people NOT to purchase it???
Oh, hi there! Guess who’s back with another blog tour? *points at self* THIS GIRRRLLL.
Welcome to my stop of the The Big Fblog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours! Today, I’ll be sharing my review and the tour-wide giveaway with you!
Coincidentally, I seem to have been a part of many blog tours which promoted books from Swoon Reads (such as this one hehe) and I’ve always had luck with their books thus far! They always have such fun and relatable contemporaries that I find very easy to read—and The Big F was no different!
Keep on reading if you’d like to know why I loved reading this book!
Welcome to my stop at the Just Friends blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours!
I am here to share my review with you (I tried and succeeded in keeping it quite short!) and there will also be a giveaway at the end of this post!
If you’re into easy-to-read contemporaries and the fake-friendship (no fake dating trope i’m sorry. but tbh i’m kinda disappointed too) and pining-for-each-other tropes, this might just be the book for you!
Yes, you read that right. I’ve actually read a mystery novel. I can’t believe it either tbh.
You guys know I prefer books that are either Contemporaries, or Fantasy (in all shapes and forms). SO WHAT HAPPENED HERE??? WHY DID I READ A MYSTERY NOVEL??? ME OF ALL PEOPLE???
Well, back when I first started out on Netgalley, I requested (and was approved for) Geekerella. I was SO excited that I just had to check out which other books Quirk Books had to offer—and Ten Dead Comedians caught my eye!
I don’t usually read mysteries but the synopsis caught my eye, and I felt like this would be a nice change to what I usually read!
Did the book live up to my expectations? Was it actually a nice change? Or did this book scare me off from the mystery genre forever? You’ll have to read my review to find out* 😛
What happened to my book buying ban you ask? *sweats nervously*
We don’t talk about that in this household! 😛
No but seriously, I actually did quite well when it comes to buying (or not buying) books this month! All of the books that will be mentioned here had been ordered before I declared my book buying ban in my VERY HUGE AND VERY FANGIRLY BOOK HAUL — they just hadn’t arrived yet at the time!
I have accumulated 9 books in June which is still okay, I believe! And all of these are books that I’ve wanted FOR AGES so that’s another plus 😉
(ALL OF THESE PICTURES ARE MY OWN SO DON’T YOU DARE STEAL THEM OR I WILL THROW BRICKS AT YOU! If you want to use them, you may ask nicely and I’ll see what I can do! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!)
HOW ARE WE HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR ALREADY??? CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN??? DID Y’ALL USE SOME TYPE OF MAGIC THAT MAKES TIME GO 10X FASTER???
I feel like I’ve only just started my blog BUT NO – IT’S BEEN 4 MONTHS ALREADY *gasps*
I’m also more than halfway through my semester at uni WHICH IS CRAZY and it makes me nervous as hell because I’ll be writing an exam at the end of the month PLUS two term papers! The thought alone makes me want to go cry in a corner.
July will be a super stressful month for me but once that is over, I’ll be going on vacation! YESSSS!
