I had to go to Junction 32 as my daughter needed something green to wear as part of a make-up assessment, so of course I couldn't resist a little quickie trip into The Works.
So what did I end up buying? Well my daughter spotted Under The Never Sky and Through The Ever Night, and I have to say I do like these covers! So we bought these 2 for £3! The offers seem to have had a change around in The Works.
I then spotted these two Anthologies. I have read other Mammoth Books Of . . . and enjoyed them so decided to get Mammoth Book Of Futuristic Romance edited by Trisha Telep and an Anthology of Zombie Stories too. These were £2.99 each or " for £5. They are both thick books so I suppose 2 for £5 isw a good enough deal.
My daughter has watched some of the Pretty Little Liar Series and read a few of the books too so when she saw these, they were kind of a MUST buy! and at £1.99 each or 2 for £3. So I bought her the 4 that The Works had in stock.
My daughter being the eagle eyed one she is when it comes to spotting books saw these right at the back of a shelf. These were again 2 for £5 though I'm not sure why these ones come under the more expensive offer.
Finally Rachel also spotted Adorkable which I fancied reading and After Obsession that Rachel quite liked so another 2 for £3!
I won this book in a competition that the Author Rachel fisher ran on Twitter! I have really enjoyed this series so far, so it's a kind of bittersweet gift. In that I really want to read it, yet I don't want the series to be ending. The book is also personally signed to me!!
I also received this surprise through the post as I didn't know I was going to receive it! so thank you to Becke Parker!
I have previously read and loved a title written by Gill Paul, called Women & Children First (it was set on the Titanic)and it was a lovely surprise to be sent this book for review too. Extra big thank you to Becke Parker!
Myself and Rachel received this on through the post from Macmillan. Rachel has read some of the series, I have yet to start them! (thank you all at Macmillan!)

Rachel was asked by the generous people at K-Teen if she would like the second book in the alone Series, Survivor by James Phelan. Rachel has done an Interview with James and I have read and reviewed both book in the series so far.
Below are several photographs showing you all the gorgeous signed paperback copy of Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson that she sent me as a thank you for supporting her fantastic Jessica McClain series . . .

It will be heading for the treasured personalised/signed books shelf as soon as Rachel has read it!)
