A Little Update:

Hey guys I hope your all doing well. You may be wondering why my blog has been empty for the past several months. This is because I was in my final year at college which kept me very busy and on my toes most the time. However, I am glad to say that I am now on summer break will be giving a lot of time to my blog and to kick start it once again I decided to create a #Bookstagram and Twitter account.

The Illuminae Files# 3 Title Reveal and Competition

I’m Back (just for a while):

Hey guys hope your all well. Long time no see I know. I’d like to say I have been busy reading or revising away for my upcoming A Level exams but I haven’t. To be honest I have just been lazy with life in general but I’m hoping to get back into a regular blogging routine once exams are done with.

Title Reveal:

ANYWAYS today I have great news for all Illuminae fans out there. The third book’s title has finally been revealed. *drum rolls*…..


Now I hope we can agree the colour of the cover will not be black but I am personally hoping for a spacey purple. Some say green, I guess that will look good too, Let me know in the comments section what colour you want it to be.

However there is some bad news before I get onto the competition section. Many of you may know that the original release date was Fall 2017 however the release date has now been pushed back to March 2018. All I can say to this is I hope it’s worth the 1 and 1/2 year wait. It better be. JOKES. But my expectations are really high for this finale.


So Jay Kristoff recently posted a block post on his blog announcing an epic competition. Just like he and Amie Kaufman did last time for Gemina, they are offering us fans the chance to have our names as part of the casualty list for Obsidio.Yayyy for being killed. Jokes….

This Is Who I Am Book Tour|TeenBookLit101

On Friday 6th June I attended the ‘This is Who I Am’ book tour on its last stop in Waterstones Deansgate.

The ‘This is Who I am Book Tour’ started on Monday 6th June until Friday 10th June with authors Harriet Reuter Hapgood and Leila sales attending Waterstones bookstores all around the UK bringing many guest authors with them.

The event started with the authors talking about the books and a chance for the audience to ask questions. Then there was a chance at the end of the show to sign books.
