That's right, the dissertation is done and dusted and will be submitted in a few short hours!! It's now 6:30am here, and I've not slept for nearly 24 hours. I'm too full of adrenaline to sleep now!

Bone Dressing by Michelle Brooks
Time is running out … the Dark that's been chasing Syd for many lifetimes has finally caught up with her … 

Sydney Roberdeau lost her parents as a young girl. Waiting for her life to start and the freedom that will come with her eighteenth birthday, Syd spends much of her time haunting the local cemetery. It is there, stretched out among the dead, that she feels most alive, most at home. Until one rainy night when Beau, Sarah and T.J. crash her ghostly sanctuary, appearing out of nowhere, turning her already inside-out world one degree past upside down. 

Syd must now revisit past lives, dressing in the bodies of her previous selves … bone dressing. Her only chance to outrun the evil breathing down her neck is to face her own worst nightmares and her strongest desires. But if she can’t stay out of trouble in this life, how can she possibly fix mistakes from past lives? And just how many lives has she lived, loved and lost? What is Syd exactly, and what will she risk for the life of a man she doesn’t remember, the man she spent a lifetime with, the man she loves? Everything … including her very own life? 

Bone Dressing, the first in a series of seven books, will carry Syd and Beau on an adventure that transcends life itself.

Doesn't this sound prettttty awesome?? You can actually download the first 5 or so chapters for FREE  from Goodreads (click on the link above) I bought it cus it was only $1 (63p) and I thought it'd be nice to support the author. Plus, how frickin awesome is that cover?? One of the best self-pubbed covers I've seen I think. I really really like it. Plus I really like graveyards. Anyway, go download this book cause it sounds really interesting and, hello, its FREE for a huuuuge preview! and get some reviews of it up on goodreads!!!

In the post:
Blood Magic ARC by Tessa Gratton thanks so much to Cicely at Cicely loves books for this one!!

and then, on Saturday, I got a laaavely parcel in the post! It was from V from ComaCalm's Corner and she sent me Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro  which is awesome, but she also sent me a biiig bar of galaxy, some cool swag and a cute little bookmark and bag! How adorable is that?? Anyway I ate the chocolate whilst watching eurovision, and I had a bit of a downday on saturday so that parcel really really cheered me up!!

I've now got 4 reviews that I need to write and post...which I'll be doing soon! Thanks for bearing with me whilst I had my little post-suspension! I really appreciate it =] I'm looking forward to visiting everyone and seeing all the posts I've been missing out on!
