Summer, Summer, Summer!

summertime

Summer had finally arrived! I’ve finished my exams and compulsory education (which is actually really scary come to think of it).The last five years have gone so fast, yet, they have been filled with copious amounts of fun.

My ‘official’ last day of school was the end of the last half-term but really I still had to come in and sit 9 more exams (out of a total of 15). I finished these last Friday and was so happy that they were over with. Yesterday, I had my Record of Achievement ceremony in which I won two awards, drama and for my contribution to the library (for which I received a signed copy of Frances Hardinge’s The Lie Tree). I have to say that yesterday was a fantastic day with everyone celebrating the final time were all going to be together as a year group.

Thankfully know that I’ve finished school I can get on to reading all the books that I’ve had to put to one side because of exams. I also have reviews for City of Ashes, Throne of Glass and A Court of Mist and Fury that I need to write.

I feel like this is going to be a great summer!

Chewy Noh has many problems. Besides his mom becoming a mu-dang-a Korean fortune-teller possessed by his dead grandmother who can read minds-the school bully, Kent, is still on the warpath to get Chewy kicked out of school. With his secret ability to win at everything, none of this bothers him until he starts disappearing for no reason. Meanwhile, a mysterious force attacks his fellow students, and he must scramble to figure out what’s going on before he becomes its next and final victim.

First off, thanks to Tim Learn for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
