Review: The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

The Explorer by Katherine Rundell
Published by Bloomsbury Children's Books
Released 10th August 2017
416 Pages
Kindle Edition

Thank you to the publisher for sending me this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

From his seat in the tiny aeroplane, Fred watches as the mysteries of the Amazon jungle pass by below him. He has always dreamed of becoming an explorer, of making history and of reading his name amongst the lists of great discoveries. If only he could land and look about him.

As the plane crashes into the canopy, Fred is suddenly left without a choice. He and the three other children may be alive, but the jungle is a vast, untamed place. With no hope of rescue, the chance of getting home feels impossibly small.

Except, it seems, someone has been there before them…

Cover Reveal: Journey from Skioria by Kandi J Wyatt


I think it's time for a cover reveal don't you? Today on Amy's Bookish Life I am going to be revealing the cover for Journey from Skioria - a children's novel by Kandi J Wyatt. I am slowly going to be focusing on children's books from time to time on here as I feel that it's really important for children to read and discover how amazing books really can be. So, I am extra excited to be sharing this cover with you. I hope you all like it. Let me know what you think about it in the comments. A big thanks to Lola's Blog Tours for allowing me to be part of this.

Published by Corsair Books
Released 10th August 2017
320 Pages
Kindle Edition

Thank you to the publisher for sending me this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Alice is stuck in an internship she loathes and a body she is forever trying to change.
Ben, also in his early twenties, is still trying to find his place in the world.
By chance they meet one day in a London park.
Day 1
Ben spots Alice sitting on a bench and feels compelled to speak to her. To his surprise, their connection is instant. But before numbers are exchanged, Alice is whisked off by her demanding boss.
20 minutes later
Alone in her office toilets, Alice looks at herself in the mirror and desperately searches for the beauty Ben could see in her.
Meanwhile, having misunderstood a parting remark, Ben is already planning a trip to Glasgow where he believes Alice lives, not realising that they actually live barely ten miles apart.
Over the next 31 days, Alice and Ben will discover that even if they never manage to find each other again, they have sparked a change in each other that will last a lifetime. In 31 Days of Wonder, Tom Winter shows us the magic of chance encounters and how one brief moment on a Thursday afternoon can change the rest of your life.

Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel
Published by Penguin
Released 1st June 2017
345 Pages
Kindle Edition

Thank you to the publisher for sending me this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five days since the accident that ripped Juniper's world apart. Life without her kind, beautiful, vibrant big sister Camilla is a colder, darker place. Until she discovers the letter. The letter Camie wrote, but never got to send. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of the accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate. 

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card contains Juniper's own secret: a memory she can't let anyone else find out. 

An unforgettable story of love, loss, mistakes and memories.
