UKYA Day: Spot the UKYA Books!

If you didn't know about UKYA day - where have you been?! The awesome Lucy from Queen of Contemporary and also Project UKYA has organised an April Extravaganza squished full of all things UKYA: posts, twitter chats and live chats with VIDEOS!

Today is the 19th April and if you haven't heard the 19th April is UKYA day!! A day where bloggers are posting their celebration post onto the internet world to share the love for the UKYA authors and novels!

So, I call mine 'Spot the UKYA Books.' 

One extract, 13 UKYA books - easy, right?

Four clues below if you get stuck, but they aren't all very obvious....



It’s quiet. The sea water ripples back and forth and the stars light the sky with the moon watching over them. He’s sitting close to me. His leg on mine, his arm wrapped round my back and my head on his chest. His heat radiating onto me.

“I’m not ready to say it yet. I feel the same but just give me time.” I say, he gives me the look and sighs.

My name is Mina. I’m the girl who watches Disney fairytale films and reads sappy books packed with romance. Before meeting him I believed in prince charmings and soulmates. I've soon learnt that that's not the case in any relationship but I like to stay optimistic. Hopeful that there will be that someone who I'll be with forever. How we ended up together is beyond me. I’m an utter geek girl.  I’m scared of anything unpredictable. Something abnormal. Something that evokes trouble. And he sits as the complete opposite of me.

 I rest my head back over his heart. His chest rising and falling with every breath, I feel him draw me closer and he plants a kiss on my forehead and asks if I’m cold. I shake my head.

I never believed the difficulties in books.  They all seemed so petty. I never thought something so small could destroy something that felt like an all time high.  But it did. I was caught up in cloud nine that I didn't even notice the obvious rumour that was floating around. So blatantly obvious, but I was being so naive I ignored it. It hit me in full force. I felt robbed. Stolen from. Nothing screams “dead romantic” more than finding out he was with another girl on Valentine’s Day. A day which he said he’d be spending the evening with his sick grandma. My heart ached from sheer pain. I cried until my body was drained from all its water.  People would say her name and the knife would plunge further, twisting in my gut. I hated what he’d done to me. I was so dense that I never stopped to think about our pacing. I agreed with myself that a break from him was best. Sorting myself out before going ahead to salvage the remains. Even after what he’d done, I never gave him a chance to explain. Apparently he got it worse than me, strange since it was his doing.

It’s not hard to guess what happened next. Bit by bit he earned my trust back. Maybe I should have been harder on him. He shattered my world, I should have destroyed his. But where would that leave us? I’m not that heartless and if there’s a way to resolve something, I will.

That summer he took me to the fun fair along the river. Merry go rounds, small roller coasters, haunted mansions, all the thrills and chills of the crazy pop-up fun fairs. We howled out laughs, I felt giddy and full of energy. In that moment, everything felt perfect. I was living someone else’s life that night. The fair made me forget what happened in the past. Everything seemed to click in the split second whilst on top of the ferris wheel and I forgave him.

The tides bring me back to the shore, the water reaching for my feet before unwillingly pulling back. I move under his arm and look up. The moonlight defining his jawline and his eyes seemed to have intensified. His mouth draws up in the corner and All my thoughts become banished. He smells like the ocean. He smells like home.

“I love you.”

I'm Leaving.........BUT I will return!!

This is so sad for me to write because I don't want to leave but from now on until the 19th June, I am having to abandon my blog. I have been really struggling to keep up with all my reviews and feature posts because of the hectic revision hours I'm piling on. 

I'm going to have to step back and focus fully on my for the next 3 months because, I'll be honest here, I really really really want to get into university.

So other than my post for UKYADay, all my other drafts will stay in drafts until the middle of June.

Then after my exams are over, I'll be back posting as much as my brain can reel out, to my hearts content, going on book splurges and hopefully redesigning my blog (which I've been wanting to do for a while - but have had no time!!).

This may be a goodbye to my blog for a bit but fear not, I will be lurking on Twitter now and then, so no blogger is dropping a reader on their stats! ;-)

Event: European Divergent Premiere

[This post a little unfinished but I wanted to get it out there before the film release!! More pictures and text to come soooon!]

In all odds, I won tickets to walk the Divergent European Premiere red carpet in London as well as to watch the film itself. For the whole weekend the Leicester Square garden was transformed into the dystopian world of Divergent, with Erudite's directing our aptitude tests and the Dauntless cheering us with a mini capture the flag game.

My friends Beth, Jack, the 'cool' Erudite and me :)
As we queued for the fan experience, we had Erudite's entertain us as they pick out Divergent's to burn by Steven (a very awkward role play if I say so myself *cringe*). As the time came closer to the gates opening for us, they soon multiplied and we were then picked on. Luckily we got an easy escape as I asked for a photo with them where they later commented how I was a "smart one." ;-) 

Collecting our wristbands, we were in! We tried everything we could - No trampoline or rock climbing for us gals though, since we were in dresses...and heels! But we had to take the aptitude test, play capture the flag and replace Four and Tris in the Divergent poster! The whole fan experience feel was so much fun and the Dauntless actors were amusing to talk to. 

THIS guy especially...he was perfect....
The charming Dauntless, Beth and me.
He is so unamused!
Daunltess: How do you know I'm nice?

Me: Because you're talking to us!

Daunltess: So what? Hitler spoke and he wasn't nice.

I definitely have a good stack of photos both with the actors and just of the surroundings.

Just a bit before we headed out, I got a chance to stop and say hi to Alison, the only Amity in sight! It was great to meet her, having spoken to her on Twitter several a times!

Other than that I didn't get a chance to talk to anyone else. I did spot Amber but then she walked off before I got a chance to go up to her - but definitely next time!!

Heading out we grabbed a quick lunch, and sooner than ever, it was time to queue to walk the carpet!! ....AND WATCH THE FILM!!!

Before we were allowed to step onto the carpet, we had to queue and choose faction wristbands from five choosing bowls. The wristbands decided where you'd sit in the cinema. Unfortunately, when we got to the bowls there were only two options left. In a panic with where to sit and what bands were left, we grabbed the Candor ones. 

As we entered, on our seats there were t-shirts as well as a free drink awaiting us. The screen was playing the footage that was being shown outside, which was really nice because I didn't feel like I missed out on anything. In my fangirling state, as I walked into the screen room, Miles Teller and Jai Courtney were on screen...dear god, I had a massive fit...Jai Courtney...!! But anyway...

All the stars, Shailene Woodley (who plays Tris), Theo James (Four), Kate Winslet (Jeanine), Ben Lloyd-Hughes (Will), director Neil Burger and author Veronica Roth came on stage to introduce the film....

*Lights die down and all goes quiet*

*Whispers swears to oneself, scared, nervous and in shock that I was about to watch the film*

The film was AMAZING. I was in complete shock at the end of it. I went in with high expectations but open minded with knowing that scenes would me missed and details missed. The cinematography in the film is beautiful with the CGI not being overdone. 

Cast-wise it was perfect. I didn't have any issue with it anyway so really, I was all up for the full film impact. Shailene played a much sassier Tris and Theo held his power and vulnerability as Four. Kate Winslet showed that she can make a great villain, from the very start there was always something unsettling that was always there, kind and firm but unsettling. I know people were annoyed about the way Eric looked, but I think Jai was a great Eric. Even if he wasn't what the Eric was like in the books, he still held the power and he stood as someone you'd never mess with. 

If I had to criticize it, I was disappointed in the relationship and character build in the movie. I felt that not all the characters got the full spot light they deserved (i.e Eric and also Peter). Due to the lack of relationship build the loses weren't as emotional as they could of been and some were just not dwelled on at all! 

It was all really cleverly shot with the highs and the lows as well as the odd humorous comments that were just perfect. Being so overwhelmed by the film, I ended up crying! Oh why do you mention something so pointless as that? So, basically, I'm a rock. As soon as I felt a tear drop...OH MY GOD - THE FIRST FILM THAT'S MADE ME CRY!!! So naturally, now this film has a sentimental value to me..

(I've now watched this film for the second time and have put more thought on it. Yes, I loved it but there are some small yet meaningful scenes that were missed out. I think the scenes that are put into the film are focusing on 'what could look beautiful on screen?' more than 'let's tell a story which delves into the characters and relationships.' But then again, it's from book to screen and it's impossible to put everything that's on the page!

The annoying thing with me being me, I know that they've filmed it and there are photos and clips in the trailer that proves they've shot it, so I am hoping for at least a three hour reel of deleted scene! - If not I will be very disappointed...)

I just wish the day was longer! I had an amazing time...and I did return home with a freebie or two...(which I have no room for in my room).

It may have to do with something with these boards
...and a bit of begging...
Ok,  A LOT of begging, but so worth it!
Because I was searching for these boards, I didn't get a chance to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes leave the cinema, as my friends told me after. It made it all that much worse when they then went on to tell me that not many people went up to him! Gah, I so would of been flailing around him, I love the whole cast so much!!

College Event: James Dawson Visit with Say Her Name reading!! [With VIDEOS]

So for part of my college celebration of YA books/Arts Award project, I organized James Dawson to come in for a talk. 

I was nervous as hell, being super worried that my posters, emails and general word of mouth wasn't enough, but that was all out of my control. I couldn't even focus on my double maths period I had in the morning..haha...

I don't know how much I'm really allowed to say about the talking that happened before the event so I just thought it'd be safer not to say anything in general...other than I can't wait for his future books and a possible shake and change in the genre department. Other than that my lips are sealed...!

James kindly agreed for me to film the talk, as a use of evidence for my Gold Arts Award, but has also let me share it with you guys too!

I have also edited out the extract that he read...just to save those who don't have an hour at hand to listen to the full talk!

So I present to you, an extract from Say Her Name read by the author himself, James Dawson

*Round of applause*

Now, for the full length talk....

There is a cut around half way through because the camera had a little panic attack but I don't think you really miss much either way! It's basically an hour long. I speak in this video...and I sound SUPER posh...I am still coming to terms with how weird I sound..

- There are some small spoilers in this talk about Say Her Name - it's in the Q&A section, you watch at your own risk (for me, I would count it as a spoiler but it's up to you!) ...It's around 28:37(ish) to 31:02(ish)

- Do I need to warn you guys about swears too? Or are we all cool about those things? What do I say..? Mild use of swearing? *shurgs*

My review will be posted here closer to the time of release! And yes, I finished it in less than 24 hours. 24 hours of paralyzed reading. I have yet to decipher if I was paralyzed from fear or enjoyment!
But in the meantime, check out Hollow Pike and Cruel Summer!

And THANK YOU (again) James for coming in!! :D 

Confessions of a Book Addict #3: Multiple Book Copies

I saw Lucy's post a whole while ago but it really got me thinking about my own collection of books. 

This is an example of my double copy collecting.
It has gone a bit crazy...
We read books and once we're done with them we put them on a shelf, display them like you're telling someone: 'yeah, I've read that book, take that!' Occasionally, if a book reaches my 'favourites' shelf, I will reread it. But does that really make me need to have two copies of a book? 

Half the time I never even read the story in the second copy of the book. But yet, I go and buy myself a second copy, just...because. 

I think my first books that I got which were doubles was a boxset of Sarah Dessen books. I already had the UK covers and then for one of my 13th (maybe? Or 14th...15th? Somewhere between there) birthday my sister got me a US boxset of Dessen's books. Those book covers have now been republished but back in the days, I really adored the American covers. I do still really do love the UK covers (before they got republished and they now match the new republished covers in the US). But anyway, those were my first double copies.

I like to think that's where it all started but I'm not 100% sure where it originated from. Some occasions, I have got some of my multiple copies for free (all by chance!) but others and the majority of the time, I do end up buying them. But I always think that maybe it's not so pointless if they are different covers, or if they are US editions of books (which are floppy and oh-so-exciting!!)

I will give you a rough outline of my collection...
(Now having done this and looking back it's almost like a name and shame on what I've spent....! I need to stop...)

Sarah Dessen
Keeping the Moon is actually called Last Chance here in the UK...and I mean, different titles, different cover, how can I not buy another copy of it? 
I am still saving to buy the Sarah Dessen DELUXE boxset. And and, it comes with a key necklace! (Pointless since I don't wear jewellery but yeah...) 

Divergent Series By Veronica Roth
Collection almost complete - but yes, I bought all of these...shipping to the UK from the US is bloody expensive...! The Chinese edition one I bought from Hong Kong.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Most recent purchase ....I love the American hardback!

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
One UK edition and the other a Chinese edition that I bought in Hong Kong!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Again, a UK edition alongside a Chinese edition...that I also bought in Hong Kong.

Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman
Won the pre-signed copy and the other was handed out at the Movellas event that I went to via Spinebreakers!

Angelfall by Susan Ee 
One copy I bought *before* it was published by Hodder and then the other two were hand-outs at the Catching Fire Premiere!!

But the question is, do I really need them? Am I gaining anything? Should I be spending my money on other books I haven't read rather than those that I have? 

And the truth is I don't know. I think that in my mind, I know that it's a huge waste of my money. I mean, an option of a new book or an already read book is not hard to choose from. But some specific books mean more to me than others so I feel the need of wanting them in their different editions and versions! 

So here's my question to you: Do you have multiple copies of certain books? What's your reasoning for getting them? If not, what's your reason for not getting them?

Book Review: Matched by Ally Condie

10401868Title: Matched (Matched #1)
Author: Ally Condie
Published: 2nd June 2011 (Penguin) 
Pages: 366

Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow. [Via Goodreads]

My Thoughts:
GAAAHHHH! This book was so disappointing in so many ways! As well as hearing about this book, the main reason it did stick in my mind was the cover. I absolutely love the cover, the bubble the matching dress and bubble the idea of being trapped...yes! 

So as soon as I started this book it really did intrigue me. I loved the whole idea of how you find out your 'match', seeing them on a screen and then taking home a card which stores all the information about them. That part really got me, just imagining the whole build up to it. But for Cassia, her match doesn't appear of the big screen. It stays black because her best friend, Xander, is her match and he is in the same room! 

But then when she gets home to see Ky flash on Xander's card. Predictably, it is a 'glitch.' However, the question remains in Cassia's mind, since when does the Society make mistakes? Do they ever?

My main issue with this book was the danger. I didn't feel any sort of danger or threat whilst reading, maybe it just wasn't strong enough, but all I know is that Cassia, Ky and even Xander got away with so much without a punishment. The actions that were done to act as punishment were also quite small. From what I took in, I would of loved a bit more description about the Society as a whole, it wasn't really very clear throughout. 

I also didn't like Cassia's narration with her indecisiveness. It really bothered me with all her bouncing around. I can't stand it when feelings and thoughts bounce around so often! Yes, maybe it did show she was constantly thinking but I think there's always a limit. Going past that limit edges onto annoying. 

I was so completely disappointed with this book, I really thought it was going to be so much better, but sadly it didn't reach those high expectations. I don't know if I'll be reading the rest of this series or not yet!

Book Review: Heart-Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne

Title: Heart-Shaped Bruise
Heart-Shaped BruiseAuthor: Tanya Byrne 
Published: 10th May 2012 (Headline)
Pages: 336

They say I'm evil. The police. The newspapers. The girls from school who shake their heads on the six o’clock news and say they always knew there was something not quite right about me. And everyone believes it. Including you. But you don't know. You don't know who I used to be. 

Who I could have been.

Awaiting trial at Archway Young Offenders Institution, Emily Koll is going to tell her side of the story for the first time. 

Heart-Shaped Bruise is a compulsive and moving novel about infamy, identity and how far a person might go to seek revenge. [Via Goodreads]

My Thoughts:
I read this book after reading Dawson's books and it definitely brought the pacing down in comparison. It was slower paced but that didn't stop me from enjoying it, it definitely added to the eeriness to the book.

The layout of the novel was as if reading from a diary. We read about Emily almost in reverse order, as we know that she has done something, we just need to find out what and the 'deeper' answer to why. I loved reading about her session with her therapists as the story unfolds. She did everything with a purpose but with her reasoning I did find her a little weird. Her mind works in an odd way, which I didn't really see eye to eye with, but then the story really wouldn't of gone anywhere if she did what I would of done. 

What freaked me out at the beginning was the times when Emily, spoke to the audience.*shivers* But at least it didn't happen as often, which disappointed me a little, and yet was grateful there was a stop to it because...it just freaked me out a little, with the already eerie storytelling and... *shivers*

It was a neatly tied ending and I can't complain for that. Nearer the mid-point I did foresee what was going to happen and for me, that's what brought this book down a bit. 

It was a good read and I'd recommend it for those who prefer the easier going crime-type books. It was super easy to get through!

Celebration of UKYA: Problems, Improvements And Actions

So I think I left off at the planning stages of my project in my last post. Planning was pretty easy for me as it only required little time to figure out what I wanted to do. Sadly, now actually trying to get everything done, it's all way above me.

Initially I wanted to only focus on UKYA fiction but now realized that that limits me a lot in trying to encourage people to come to my book club, so I've had to just keep it to YA fiction in general.

So, fortunately, I can say it's not going to be a complete flop. The displays I wanted to do aren't going to be as lavish as I pictured them. However, I spoke to the college librarian and she was totally for the idea of putting a display of YA fiction up. We actually ended up talking about reading in general and how I feel that in schools we are pushed to read certain books, which people don't enjoy and therefore decide that they overall don't like reading. I made these small booklets of recs, 8 pages or so, and she was super nice and said she'd order some of them in!! (Damn, should of put more books that I haven't read on that list!! There are so many!) Haha, but I will be displaying books, hopefully, this week! I will definitely show everyone when I'm done with it ;D

As well as the display, I have also managed to book an author. I initially wanted to get two authors in but soon realized that with the budget given, two is hard to fit as well as the fact that I had to find authors who people will want to turn up to an listen to talk. I'm really gutted about this part the most because I guess you say that I wanted to get authors in so I could meet them... Although in the end I ended up asking people who've I've actually already met! I also wanted to get an author to do a workshop (more because I wanted to sit through an authors' creative writing workshop) but that has also had to be put aside due to what I can o with the amount I have. But I have one author booked and I am totally happy about that!!

My first YA book club is THIS Friday, and I am totally dreading that no one will turn up (I know the poster inserted has the 21st March written on it - I got rid of the 7th date on it so I have premade posters for next week :P)

Trying to complete this running alongside my A2 classes is crazy hard and I am starting to wonder why they didn't get us to do this in the first year rather than the second year!

But anyway, I just thought I'd give you a little update on my plans...It's nice to just be able to write about it even if no one reads it...

- Hope everyone is having a great week!

February Roundup: Bought More, Read More

There are way too many...

You can just check my stacking shelves post here to see what I mean here (keep in mind that I have yet to get through my last haul...)

Personal Life:
February was pretty much packed with university everything. I received all my replies from the five unis and have gone to three applicant days (still have another but in April!). 

Something really uninteresting but I'm going to say anyway, is that I got a maths tutor this month (YES!) - I've been trying to find a really good one for a while because I am just all-round failing maths at the moment.

Fangirling is part of personal life right? So Divergent sure had a lot going on in February and it's AWESOME! Trailers, music videos FEAR LANDSCAPE clip.... *mindblown*

Next Month:
Catching up on my reviews. 
Try come up with some fun posts to read.
Ongoing revision!

Sabrina's Stacking Shelves #2

I'll be honest with you, I went on another huge buying binge. I still have a tonne from my previous that I haven't read yet and as it's coming close to half term that I doubt I'll be reading again any time soon! 

I don't know what came over me but there were cheap books here and then bloggers wanted to get rid of their books and so I was just like, "I'LL GIVE THEM HOMES! ADD THEM TO MY FUTURE LIBRARY!! GIVE, I'LL PAY!" - that's not even exaggerating my thoughts. 

I thought I'd change up my display background, just because my TBR shelf is in the crammy little corner so my "display" unit for this month is my stool... 

I buy all my books unless said otherwise...I really need to start saving....

Waterstones, Amazon and Folyes:
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher

So that is my heap of a haul. 

What's everyone else got recently? Done a shop that you shouldn't have like me? xD

Unapologetic Fangirl For:

Worst Bookish Habit:
Leaving my bookmarks all over the house. 
**Playing cards make really good bookmarks!**

X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
The Kill Order by James Dashner - a book that I have in the American cover, which I got from my friend for my birthday!
(I started from the top of my YA shelves, since at the very top of my shelves I have my kid books)

Your latest book purchase:
I feel like it should say "books" not "book" because who just buys one book at a time?!?

Haha, I think I will say Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (but it was also bought with a tonne of other books I shouldn't of bought!)

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
I am very strict with how long I stay up reading because, unlike many of my friends, I can't function without sleep and I become a real grumpy poo. But anyway, Requiem by Lauren Oliver kept me up - worst thing is, I had a maths exam the next day!
