Book Haul #6 - Kindle edition #3

“When I look at my room, I see a girl who loves books.”
My apologies readers,
The reason I failed to post yesterday was I went on a clothes shopping trip from 9am - 6pm and when I got back I was busy having dinner and watching a movie with my family.

July TBR !


Say goodbye in the pouring rain and I breakdown  again,

Bonjour Bibliomaniacs,

In store for you Today is my July TBR - To Be Read pile - that will basically showcase what I hope to be reading the upcoming month.

I'd like to inform you that I'm now participating in the summer lovin' read-a-thon but there will be more on the books I'll be reading then in my introduction post on Monday.

During that week I'll be posting everyday I think so you can look forward to more regular posting.

I won't be doing the Booktube-a-thon now though because I don't want the pressure of doing two and I wanted do this more as it's more interesting and fun.

There was too many books to take individual pictures of so I just wrote the title and why I chose this for the month. There's three different perspectives of the pile though.

Let's begin :
July TBR

 J17 - Love Games by Jacqui Devoy - I meant to read this in June but never got around to it  due to my library craze. I'm kind of on a ban from the Libraries this month so maybe this will get some attention. I'm reading it because tennis is a Summer sport therefore this can only be read this season.
Nancy Drew Files #7 - Deadly doubles by Carolyn Keene - Another book revolving around tennis.
Point Romance - Secret Love by Sue Welford - Has a summery feel to it.
Point Crime - The smoking gun by Malcom Rose - Death occurs during Spots Day and mines in July so I'm reading it on the very day.
Justine Duval #1 - Wild Child by Chloe Rayban - You may remember that I read another book by her a while ago and that was okay so I'm hoping for better things in this. Reading because it's a summery series.
Nancy Drew Files #59 - High Risk by Carolyn Keene - I might be craving more Nancy after Deadly Doubles.
Point Horror - Mothers Helper by A. Bates (from Point Horror Collection 1) - Set during Summer.
Point Horror - Hit and run by R.L Stine - Set during Summer.
Shine by Kate Maryon - Set during Summer.
Magenta #1 - Magenta Orange by Echo Freer - A re-read so I can read #3.
Reluctantly Alice by Phyliss Reynolds Naylor - About Alice in Year 8 so I'm only in Year 8 till the end of July so I'll have to read this before I go into Year 9 or it'll just be strange.
The Crush by Alex Shearer - Summery feel.
LBD #1 - It's a girl thing by Grace Dent - Set in July.
The end of everything by Megan Abbott - Set at the end of the school year which is what July is.
Lia's guide to winning the lottery by Keren David - Set back from June so it deserves to be read soon.
Fashonitas #2 - Hadley by Sarra Manning - An everyday summer read.
Sweethearts - Strictly Friends by Jo Cotterill - An everyday summer read.
Cannibals by Cynthia D. Grant - Summery feel.
The Beast by Ann Evans - Set in Scotland which is where I'm going in July/August.
Walk two moons by Sharon Creech - Road-trips remind me of summer.

The Book Burger tag - Converted from Youtube

The Sweetest Sweet Valley Week,

Hi readers,
I'm extremely enjoying my life at the moment : I attended a Literacy conference yesterday, have managed to read a Sweet Valley book per day this week so far and I won a £5 WH Smith voucher in a prize draw at school.

To add to this euphoria I'm now going to devour a scrumptious tag that seems to be trending currently. I personally adore it as I think the questions are so fun : the tag is so original and inventive. It was created by RyanReadsBooks.

On another enthusiastic note, Here's the post :

I'm building a book burger.

First I need a bottom bab - the first book in a series I loved :

Signs of love  #1 - Love Match by Melody James
Amongst my top 5 favourite reads of the year I adored this colossally due to the remarkable list of things I could be poignant to.
I've only read the first two books but I plan on buying the third this weekend if I can find it and the fourth comes out in August.
Now here's the Burger Meat - A 400+ page book that  I've read and enjoyed.
Final Destination 3 (novelisation) 409 pages
The movie adaptation is my favourite of the franchise but I recommend the book more as it has additional detail and I actually prefer it to the film.
I don't read many thick books so this was the only candidate for this category that's currently on my shelves
Next I add a thin slice of cheese - a book I've read and enjoyed (200 pages or less)
Master of Murder by Christopher Pike 169 pages
My favourite novel by him so a splendid choice for this option : Marvin is my ideal husband.
As well as a slice of lettuce - A book I want to read but haven't yet (200 pages or less)

Cannibals by Cynthia D. Grant 133 pages
Bought this book in Bridlington (I'll be returning for a Book buying trip there in August) last summer and intend on reading it in July.
If this book wasn't so tall with a small font size it would probably be 250 pages long but fortunately it is applicable for this choice in this annoying size.
Time for a thinly sliced tomato -  An average-sized (200-400 pages) book I loved
The Vampire Stalker by Allison Van Diepen  250 pages

The second top 5 favourite of 2013 from this tag I loved this book a lot more than I expected to.
Now for a new sauce - A book I thought I'd love but hated
Only read book one in this series unless you want ridiculous plots and disappointment.
Finally I need a top bap to complete my burger - The last book in a series I don't want to end.
Pretty Little Liars #14 - Deadly by Sara Shepard
Pictured is #3 Perfect because it's the only one in the series that I own.
Even though I've only read up to the original ending I will be upset to see the full series end when I read them.
I suppose It's not the end of the world because I've still got The Lying Game series to read.
My Book Burger :
