Follow Friday & Blog Hop 22/7

Every week Parajunkee hosts "Follow my Book Blog Friday", a great feature where you can get to know other bloggers.

Please leave a comment if you are following me, and I will follow you back.

Jennifer at Crazy for Books is hosting Book Blooger Hop
Book Blogger Hop

This weeks question: Tell us about the book your are currently reading.

I am currently reading "By Midnight" by Mia James, and so far I am loving it. Here is what the story is about:

April Dunne is not impressed. She's had to move from Edinburgh to Highgate, London, with her parents. She's left her friends - and her entire life - behind. She has to start at a new school and, worst of all, now she's stuck in a creepy old dump of a house which doesn't even have proper mobile phone reception. Ravenwood, her new school, is a prestigious academy for gifted (financially or academically) students - and the only place her parents could find her a place, in the middle of term, in the middle of London, on incredibly short notice. So she's stuck with the super-rich, and the super-smart ...and trying to fit in is when the rest of the students seem to be more glamorous, smarter, or more talented than she is, is more than tough. It's intimidating and isolating, even when she finds a friend in the conspiracy-theorist Caro Jackson - and perhaps finds something more than friendship in the gorgeous, mysterious Gabriel Swift. But there's more going on at Ravenwood than meets the eye. Practical jokes on new students are normal, but when Gabriel saves her from ...something the Highgate Cemetery, and then she discovers that a murder took place, just yards away from where she had been standing, April has to wonder if something more sinister is going on. ..and whether or not she's going to live through it ..

Have a great friday everyone!

Isn't funny how unsympathetic parents or guardians so often are the bad guys in the YA books? Hmmm.
