Night School: Legacy (Trailer & Blog Tour Details)

Looks brilliant, right? Well I have read it and can confirm it`s awesome!!!

Here is more information about the book:

From Goodreads: In the last year, Allie's survived three arrests, two breakups and one family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at Cimmeria Academy. It's the one place she's felt she belongs. And the fact that it's brought the dreamy Carter West into her life hasn't hurt...But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerous than Allie could've imagined. The students, and faculty, are under threat and Allie's family - from her mysterious grandma to her runaway brother - are at the centre of the storm. Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest relationships apart...

I`ll also be part of the blog tour next week (3 Jan) so stop by for that!  Plus the tour is running an awesome competition - check below for the details:

Do you have what it takes to face the Night School challenge?

UKYABB Secret Santa

This year Lynsey from Narratively Speaking organised a UK, YA Secret Santa - and since I love all things YA I decided to take part.

Here's what I was sent:

* Insurgent Collectors Edition US Hardback (!!!!!!!!)  I really wanted this so I was super pleased when I unwrapped it!
* A bookmark - I am Dauntless (how awesome is that?)

Thanks Lynsey for organising it and massive thanks to my Secret Santa (aka Casey!)- you both rock:)

Film casting the Irresistible boys (Irresistible Blog Tour)

Today we have Liz Bankes, who has stopped by to talk about who she'd cast as the male leads in her novel Irresistible. I shall pass you over...
Film casting the Irresistible boys

It's been a bit of a chore doing this book – I mean, I just had to spend an evening searching for pictures of hot men to play Jamie and Dan in my imaginary film-casting. HOW AWFUL.

Sexy, rich and bored, Jamie hangs around his parents’ castle causing trouble, especially for Mia.

So this guy was in Harry Potter. HOW DID I MISS THIS? So if you google him there are plenty of pictures of him in shirts, dressed up all posh and Jamie-like, but I accidentally typed ‘shirtless’ instead. 

So he has the right look for Jamie, but I’d need to know if he is good at being blunt and sarcastic and for that I’d have to meet him. So if we could arrange that please?

Funny, lovely Dan is brightening up Mia’s summer as they work together in the restaurant of Radleigh Castle.

McFly are lovely. I feel a bit like they are my friends, which they could be if you count ‘people I talk to in my head and follow on Twitter’ as friends. Dan is funny, optimistic and loves life. I could see him in McFly. As for which one he looks most like, you’ll have to read it and decide for yourself!
Thanks Liz!
Irresistible is available to buy now as an ebook and will be published in paperback April 2013.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the tour!  The next stop is over at Stepping Out of The Page tomorrow.
