Q1.) Have you read this book? If so what did you think of it? I haven’t read this book yet, its part of a series which I know Donna from Book Passion for Life loved, so I can’t wait to get to it soon.
Book Number: 3 Book: Ultraviolet by RJ Anderson.
Q2.) Why did you buy this book? Were you recommended it? Was it a random purchase? I’d read some great initial reviews which perked my interest, also when I read the back of the cover and saw the gorgeous cover in the bookstore, I just couldn’t resist.

Book Number: 55 Book: Defiance by CJ Redwine.
Q4.) Who’s this books bookshelf neighbour? Its
neighbour on its left side is Deception by CJ Redwine, I remember loving the first book last year, and I can’t wait to see which direction Redwine will take its characters in this latest instalment. And Defiance’s neighbour on the right is The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg; I was of course totally enticed into buying a copy thanks to the lovely Maja’s review over at The Nocturnal Library.
Book Number: 34 Book: Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally.
Q5.) How many books have you read by this book’s author? I’ve read all of Miranda’s books, even her latest book which is set to release in December called Racing Savannah. I can’t recommend picking up Miranda’s books enough; she’s one of the best authors I’ve discovered in the last two years.
Book Number: 16 Book:
Q6.) Do you have any special memories attached to this book? I’ve not read this book yet, so I’ve gone with book number 13 on my bookshelf which is Where She Went by Meg Cabot. This book wasn’t actually available in the UK through a UK publisher. At the time this is when I used to read Meg’s blog like every single day, one day she had a giveaway up, all you had to do was send her an email saying why you wanted to read her books. I remember writing a fangirly email, not expecting much. But was overjoyed to find a copy of this book which I was dying to read on my doorstep one day. So thank you Meg!
Book Number: 12 Book: Queen of Babble in the Big City.
Q7.) Is this book part of a series? If it is are you up to date with the series? Yes! This is one of my all time favourite series, I actually read this series from time to time whenever I need a good comfort read, it provides such great characters and many laugh out loud moments.
Book Number: 1 Book: Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson.
Q8.) Is this book something you’d typically read or is it out of your comfort zone? At the time I wasn’t going through the best paranormal phase, but I read this book with Rachel and Sam and we ended up devouring it in two days. It definitely took me by surprise and I have been a fan of Sarah's books ever since.
Book Number: 26 Book:
Q9.) Have you reviewed this book? If yes then share a link to it. Maybe by now you can guess what I’m going to say. I haven’t read this yet, so I've gone with book number 25 which is Just One Year by Gayle Forman and you can read my review here.
Book Number: 63 Book: Queen of Babble gets Hitched by Meg Cabot.
Q10.) Where did you buy this book from? I remember book two Queen of Babble in the Big City ended on a major cliffhanger, I was depressed, as I had a year long wait. So when my friend told me he was going to New York and did I want anything? I totally told him to get me a copy of this book (seriously I need to move to the US for all these early releases). And he was super sweet, with the girly cover and I’m sure he was out of his comfort zone buying me a copy with all his guy mates. But I was able to read this book a whole year early thanks to him.

Book Number: 76 Book: The Host by Stephanie Meyer.
Q11.) Roughly how long have you owned this book for? January 2009. I remember purchasing the Twilight series around this time and of course I had to get anything else that Stephanie Meyer had written too. This book definitely exceeded my expectations.
Book Number: 40 Book: Hold Still by Nina Lacour.
Q12.) Share the first sentence of this book. “I watch drops of water fall from the ends of my hair” This is another book which I haven’t read yet, but I was totally tempted to keep reading on from this quote.
|Book 40: Hold Still by Nina Lacour|
Book Number: 60 Book: The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd.
Q13.) What’s your opinion on this book’s cover? I do love this UK cover, I love the deep red/maroons that have been used, and it’s done well to represent the blood. However I do think that I prefer the US cover slightly more, both have that creepy vibe going on, but the US cover seems to nail the creepiness more.
Book Number: 87 Book: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.
Q14.) In a few sentences describe this book in your own words. A magical world never seen before. Complex characters which slowly win you over. A story full of violence, mystery and loyalty. There was so much hype surrounding this book before that I was tempted to skip it. But sometimes you need to give these books a go; you never know you could be left surprised and a very happy reader like I was.
And there you have it a little sneak peak at my bookshelf, I know a lot of other bloggers have done this post too, you can see their bookshelves in the comments section of Jess's post here. Like me do you have a lot of books on your shelf that you still need to read? Which
