The Amateurs by Sara Shepard | Spoiler Free Review

Title: The Amateurs by Sara ShepardThe Amateurs.jpg11.jpg
Genre: Young Adult Mystery
Pages: 336

Synopsis:
Everyone’s dying to know the truth . . .

When Aerin Kelly was eleven, she idolised her seventeen-year-old sister, Helena, and they did everything together. They made Claymation movies and posted them to YouTube. They made fun of Windmere-Carruthers, the private school they attended, they invented new flavours for their parents’ organic ice cream shop, and they dressed up their golden retriever, Buster. But when Helena went into senior year things started to change. Rather than being Aerin’s inseparable sister, she started to push her away. Then, on a snowy winter’s day, Helena vanished. 

Four years later, Helena’s body is found. Wracked with grief and refusing to give up on her sister, Aerin spends months trying to figure out what exactly happened to Helena and who killed her. But the police have no leads. A young, familiar officer named Thomas wants to help and suggests she checks out a website called Case Not Closed. Hesitantly, she posts, and when teenagers Seneca and Maddox show up on her doorstep offering to help investigate she accepts in desperation. Both have suffered their own losses and also posted to the site with no luck, so they are hoping this case might be the one they crack. But as their investigation begins, it seems that maybe it’s no accident that they are all together, and that maybe the crimes have something – or someone – in common.

Valentines Day Top Ten Couples

Hello Bookworms!

Happy Valentines Day! Considering it’s February 14th I thought I would do a special Valentines post sharing with you my Top Ten OTP [One True Pairings]. Choosing just ten was so hard but I finally managed to dwindle it down. All of these are couples which have stayed with me since reading the series, they are characters I rooted so hard for as I read the books and characters that have not left me since. 

In no particular order here are my Top Ten Couples/ OTP…

Please note for some of these I have included fanart; I have tried to include the artists names but sadly could not find them all. Images belong to their artists.

How Bookstagram Helped Me Fall Back In Love With Reading | Discussion

Hi Book lovers!

Today I wanted to come at you with a discussion type post on How Bookstagram Helped Me Fall Back In Love With Reading. 
Skeptical and thinking how could Instagram help someone like reading more?! Well your like I was then and I didn’t expect it to work. 
Me and reading have a tense relationship, I love it but it doesn’t always love me and I have SO many reading slumps and finding a way to come out of them is difficult. Sometimes it’s just a case of literally forcing my butt down on a chair and reading.

When I first started my blogging journey, I started an Instagram page as well and would post every so often just basic pictures of my books but I never took it too seriously. Then following Christmas for which I got money towards a new camera I decided to delete my old Instagram and start a new one and try to ‘bookstagram properly.’ Since then I have noticed a change in my reading habits and feelings towards reading for the positive.

Hey Book Lovers!

It’s officially the end of the month which means Wrap Up Time!

I’m getting so much better on not pressuring myself in my university work, blogging and reading and I hope it continues.

Here’s what the month held for me…

Prayers For The Stolen by Jennifer Clement | Mini Review & Recommendation

Hey Book Lovers!

Today I’m trying something new and doing a Mini Review and Recommendation. I thought I would do this for the books I have read linked to my University Course as then I won’t go into too much detail and end up accidentally plagiarising myself should I use them for any essays. My essays are entered online and then they are scanned by that system to check if they plagiarise any websites, at the end they offer a similarity rating and show what is similar to what website.

First up  is Prayer For The Stolen by Jennifer Clement.
