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.

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Diversity Bingo 2017

To continue with my aim of reading diversely, I decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to do the Diversity Bingo Challenge. The idea of this being to read 36 books and complete the bingo-like sheet with the aim being to read as much diverse fiction as possible. Like a lot of people in the bookish community, I wanted to continue reading more diverse books and thought this would be the way to do it. This post is to update myself and others on my progress in this challenge so if you are looking for recommendations in what to read please look here, herehere and here. So let's get started...
