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.

31 Days of Wonder by Tom Winter
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.

Why I Love Books.


Happy Book Lovers Day! Today is a great day for any self confessed book lover (myself included). It's a day where we can celebrate our love of all things bookish and just spend the whole day reading (well that's what I'm going to do, after doing some uni work of course). In honour of this day I am going to tell you some of the reasons why I love books so much. There are many I can assure you, but I will only be revealing a few. I'd love to know why you all love books as well so feel free to leave any comments.

Review: Dream Me by Kathryn Berla

Dream Me by Kathryn Berla
Published by Amberjack Publishing
Released 11th July 2017
270 Pages
Kindle Edition

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

Zat is a dreamer from the distant future—a time when humans no longer dream and Earth is a desolate wasteland. He dreams of the beautiful Earth of the past, and a fiery-haired beauty named Babe. Against the wisdom of his peers, Zat decides to risk everything to travel back in time and live in Babe’s dreams…

Babe is the perpetual new girl in town. Her father's job frequently moves the family around the country, and Babe just longs for a place to call home. As she settles into the sleepy town of Sugar Dunes, Florida, Babe begins to have strange dreams of a green-eyed boy named Zat. Night after night, Babe shows Zat her world. But the dreams come at the cost of nearly crippling migraines every morning. Babe’s life outside of her dreams pales in comparison to her growing love for Zat and their time spent together.

But the more time Babe and Zat spend together in her dreams, the more Babe’s pain increases, and Zat begins to question the reality of his existence. How can he live a life with Babe, when all they have is her dreams? 

Can a dream become a reality?
