TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE

Kellan Turner is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. But when she speaks up, she is branded a liar. Telling the truth has cost her everything, because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town.

But when news of Kellan assaulting another girl gets out, the cost of staying silent might be more than Romy can bear.
All The Rage examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women in a culture that refuses to protect them.

Top Ten Tuesday #16 - Ten books On My Autumn TBR

Hosted by the lovely people over at Broke and Bookish. 
This weeks topic: Ten books on your Spring/Autumn TBR

It's Autumn and it's' glorious! Its the season for snuggling under warm, cozy and fluffy blankets with your hot water bottles and of course a book. Autumn/Winter is my favourite season if you didn't already know. I mean it's basically a season that gives you the excuse to stay at home all day and do nothing. Well not nothing because unfortunately life happens, but still, good excuse. SO here is to trying to stick to TBR's this season. Key word here, trying.

Stacking the Shelves #2 - Christmas/New Year/Early March Book Haul

Hosted by the wonderful blog Tynga's Reviews

I've been meaning to do a Stacking the Shelves post for so long, particularly since end of December kind-of-long. Yeah that happened. So this book haul is a mixture of books I've accumulated since Christmas, don't worry it's not huge, so you won't be here forever as I actually haven't been buying a lot of books until recently.

Review - Model Misfit (Geek Girl #2) by Holly Smale

18065780

Model Misfit

By Holly Smale


Number 2 in the Geek Girl series | Young Adult Contemporary | Published 26 September 2013

My rating: A new favourite

 
“My name is Harriet Manners, and I am still a geek.”
Harriet knows that modelling won’t transform you. She knows that being as uniquely odd as a polar bear isn’t necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.
What Harriet doesn’t know is where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives.
With summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes.
Because, this time, Harriet knows what a broken heart feels like.
Can geek girl find her place on the other side of the world or is Harriet lost for good?
