Top Ten Tuesday: Ten UKYA books

It's Tuesday which means that it is time for a Top Ten Tuesday post. This week's topic is ten UKYA books. The Top Ten Tuesday feature was created by The Broke and the Bookish and more about it can be found here. Let's get started...

Number 10: Solitaire by Alice Oseman 

SolitaireI read this book last year and it was very enjoyable. It follows Tori and her experiences in Sixth Form. It also deals with being a teenager in the digital age which I highly recommend. 










Number 9: North of Porter by Kirkland Ciccone

North of PorterI talk about this book a lot on my blog so if you do not know what this book is about, you must be new here. The book explores Porter as he moves to a new town and finds there are many mysteries to it. A great read and one of my favourites of last year. 








Number 8: In Bloom by Matthew Crow

In BloomI read this when it first came out and I remember really enjoying it. The book follows Francis who discovers that he has leukaemia and the things that happen after.  











Number 7: Take Back The Skies by Lucy Saxon 

Take Back the Skies (Take Back the Skies, #1)This book has a few negative reviews but I really like it so I defintely recommend. This book follows Cat who wants to get away from home so joins a floating ship. This may not be everyone's cup of tea but it was one of mine. 










Number 6: Before I Die by Jenny Downham

Before I DieThis was probably one of the first UKYA books that I read although I didn't know it was in the category of UKYA. This is a book that follows Tessa who has terminal cancer and decided that she is going to stop having treatment. This is a great book but get your tissues at the ready. 








Number 5: How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff

How I Live NowI read this book like 3 years ago and it is still one that I will never forget. The book follows Daisy as she goes to England to live with her cousins for the summer and then WWIII happens. A great book that will remain one of my favourites. 









Number 4: The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live HereAlthough this is not a lot of other people's favourite Patrick Ness's book but it is mine. The tag line of this book is what if you are not the chosen one, so....











Number 3: The Death House by Sarah Pinborough 

The Death HouseThis book is one of my favourite books of last year and is just really good. The book follows a group of teenagers who are segregated after getting a terminal disease and it is quite the heartbreaker. 









Number 2: Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne

Am I Normal Yet? (Normal, #1)So this is another book that I talk about on my blog all of the time. This is because is was hands down my favourite book of last year. The book follows Evie who has OCD and wants to have a normal life. This book is amazing and I hope some of you pick this up. 








Number 1: Blood Red Road by Moira Young 

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)This book is one of those books that is a favourite but I don't talk about it that much. This book follows Saba who lives in a post apocalyptic world and when her brother is taken she goes on a journey to get back. This book is very good and is definitely need to read.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…

I hadn't heard of the Curse of Time when I received an email to be part of the blog tour but being a person who loves to read YA fantasy I knew I had to give it a read. I really enjoyed The Curse of Time and it is a real…
