Asking For It. Asking For It is Louise O' Neill's new YA book. I got this because I was going to be meeting Louise O' Neill at DeptCon1.

Unbecoming. This is Jenny Downham's new release and I got this because well it had a fabulous cover, fabulous storyline and because I was going to be meeting Jandy Nelson at DeptCon1 too.

The Accident Season. I got this spooky book for Halloween time but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Moira Fowley Doyle was also at DeptCon1!

The Lost And The Found. This is a release by Cat Clarke with a very, very interesting premise that I just had to pick it up. I love the cover too and Cat Clarke was at DeptCon1 too.

Vendetta. A first book in a series by Catherine Doyle. I was really intrigued by the Romeo and Juliet and mafia aspect of this book, so I picked it up!. Catherine Doyle was also at DeptCon1!

Am I Normal Yet?. A first book in The Normal Series by Holly Bourne. I have just been very interested in contemporary / reaistic fiction that have a darker side lately whether it deals with violence, abuse or illness. Holly Bourne was also at DeptCon1.

The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting. I heard Holly Bourne talk on her panel and just had to pick up all her books then and there.

Soulmates. Holly Bourne's debut. I picked this up after hearing her speak on her panel!.

Not If I See You First. This book is an arc and is set to release next year. I got this free in the DeptCon1 goodie bag.

Thirteen. I also got this book free in the DeptCon1 goodie bag.

Hour Of The Bees. Another arc which I got in the DeptCon1 goodie bag. I believe this releases in March 2016 and is a middle grade novel.

Flawed. This came as a manuscript in my DeptCon1 goodie bag. Yay!! And this is Cecilia Ahern's first YA novel.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. This book was just sitting there pretty in the bookshop and I just had to pick it up after all the good things I'd been hearing.

Illuminae. One of my most anticipated reads of 2015! Just had to get this. And it wasn't even on the shelves when I went in... I asked and they had it in the back to be put out the following day but I still got one.

Six Of Crows. Do I need to explain my reasoning for getting this book... I think not.
