#BTCYA or More Books I Need to Read.

Last night the very lovely Amanda and Tim from HarperCollins YA came to Melbourne to talk about some of their favourite books from 2015, and to introduce us to some upcoming titles which will soon become favourites.

We arrived to find fabulous swag bags on our seats with these lovely goodies inside:

We were also given chocolates which may or may not have come from the hotel mini-bar.

Blog Tour - The Next Together - Guest Post

The Next Together is the story of two characters who meet and fall in love through many different lifetimes. You can see my review over on Reading Lark. I really enjoyed it and am excited to be part of the blog tour celebrating its release. The other stops on the tour are listed on the bottom of this post. Be sure to check them out!

The Next Together is a bit sci-fi and a bit romance. Lauren's characters appear in different historical time periods and it's obvious that she has a love of history, so I thought it would be fun to find out about her favourite historical romances.

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

This is a retelling of the Illiad set in Ancient Greece and exploring the relationship between Achilles and Patroclus. Interwoven with gods, goddesses and magic, at its core this is a romance of truly epic proportions. If you know the mythology, you know to brace yourself for tears and heartbreak.
