Bone Gap - Laura Ruby
Balzer + Bray
Release date:
March 3, 2015

In Bone Gap, it's not surprising when people go missing; it's a regular occurence, it's not the first time people have slipped away, disappeared. 
When Roza goes missing, no one is surprised, but Finn O'Sullivan knows...
Finn's mother left him and his brother, Sean, a few years before, and he knows that Roza hasn't just left the way his mother had - she's been kidnapped. 
Finn can't remember the man's face from the cornfield where Roza was taken, and all the searches for her turn up inconclusive. Sean has more reason to want to find Roza than anyone else has, but even he doesn't believe Finn anymore. No one does.

The Mirror World of Melody Black - Gavin Extence
Hodder & Stoughton
Release date:
March 12, 2015

Unfortunately I dont know an awful lot about this book but I'm still very excited to get my hands on it seeing as Gavin Extence fast became one of my favourite authors with his debut novel The Universe Versus Alex Woods.
From what I can gather, The Mirror World of Melody Black is the protagonist, Abby's, account of her life which is spiralling out of control due to mental illness.

Penryn, however, finds an unlikely ally in Raffe, a wingless angel.
End of Days finds Penryn and Raffe on a final desperate hunt for a doctor to reverse the damage done to both Raffe and Paige, while faced with a war where they must finally decide where their allegiances lie - with the humans or the angels.

Welcome to Books Under Blankets

Hi everyone, my name is Katie, and welcome to my new blog!

Seeing as we're so close to the New Year, I decided I wanted to take up a new hobby.  I knew from the get-go that I wanted this hobby to revolve around books; I've been an avid reader since I was very young but unfortunately, in my outside-of-the-internet every-day life, I have no one I can talk with about the books that I enjoy or am reading at the moment.  I wanted my own space outside the restrictions of Goodreads to post more than just status updates and reviews.

I initially had the idea to join Booktube because, in my two years of lurking on there, felt like part of the discussion simply watching people who are as passionate as I am speak about books - even though I was uploading no content myself. Unfortunately, I don't have the equipment to film a good-quality video and, to be honest, I'm not very confident when it comes to physically speaking to new people - or to a camera it seems! It took me over two hours to film a one-minute intro video which I was very dubious about uploading .. and ended up not uploading at all. Then I thought, why not try my hand at a book blog? I can string a typed sentence together with ease and not get myself into a panic, so here I am!

I enjoy books such as the A Song of Ice and Fire series, Throne of Glass, The Raven Cycle series, and John Green's novels. I mainly read high-fantasy, YA contemporary and paranormal, but the communities on both Goodreads and Booktube have opened my eyes to a lot of genres that you would've had to force me to read before but now find myself loving, such as historical fiction and sci-fi. 
My aim is to take what I most enjoy watching on Booktube - hauls, wrap-ups, tags, to-be-read lists - and bring them to my blog, but in text and photo-form. 
I hope to share and find new reads and make some friends and reading buddies through the blogging community :)

Happy reading and all the best for 2015,
