Beloved Books

Published on Sunday 16th November 2014 by Julie Embleton

A loud Bleat Bleat! ‘Released’ is with the editors (finally!) and due for publishing in December. As soon as I have the date I’ll let y’all know. It will be available for pre-order just in case you absolutely have to have it the second it’s on-line. And what do you know – it’ll be out just in time for Christmas!! Think of how perfect a gift it would be as a stocking filler! The links to the retail sites will be up here once it’s ready so all you’ll need to do is clickedy click.

Thank you to everyone who sent in their lists of most loved books. The mails are still coming but for now I’ll post up these three from Caroline, Chloe and StefBref. I think it’s very hard to choose a favourite book so thanks for racking your brains and taking the time to share these with everyone. What made me smile is that no-one has sent in a list of most hated books. Maybe we started reading them, realised we didn’t like them, threw them aside and then never thought about them again! I’d rather have memories of great books than bad books anyway . . .

The image I’ve blatantly robbed off the internet is a still from The Vampire Diaries. The Salvatore brothers have a library in their house and every time there’s a scene in this room I get distracted because I’m staring longingly at those shelves and hundres of books and leather chairs  . . . (and Ian Somerhalder, of course) When I’m obscenely wealthy I’ll have one of these rooms in my house. And Ian will call over. And we’ll have tea. And then we’ll . . . ahem, sorry, very distracted now.

Back to business! Here are some of your beloved books.

Hi Julie. Here are my favourite top 3 books at the moment. It will be different next month cos I read so much and am always adding new books to my lists. I can recommend all these books to anyone. Rapture is the final in the series about angels. All of the books by Lauren Kate are worth reading!

Hello Julie. I’m not good at writing reviews so I just wanted to list my all time favourite books. Like you I love Wuthering Heights. I also loved Jane Eyre. Anyway here’s my list: Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Perks of being a Wallflower, A Great and Terrible Beauty and The Hunger Games books.

Dear Julie. This is cool. Thanks for giving me a chance to talk about a book I loved. It’s called ‘A Great and Terrible Beauty’ and was written by Libba Bray. It’s the first of a trilogy and I can’t wait to read the rest! It was a great read. When is your sequel to Bound coming out? I can’t wait for it either!! StefBref

When the vision becomes a reality Gemma is packed up from her home in India and sent to England where she is enrolled in a girl’s academy called Spence. One of the school’s wings is burned out and is surrounded in mystery. Gemma finds it hard to settle in the school. Her roommate and many of the other girls are cruel to her but she fights back and with her roommate, Ann, they finally get accepted by the others. Gemma finds out that a young man called Kartik has followed her from India to England. He’s desperate to tell her that she must fight the visions she has been having. She tries, but the visions still come and one night a ghost child brings her to find a diary that has the secrets of a mystical order. Gemma’s friends work out how to join Gemma when she goes to the other realms of her visions but they soon learn that something evil lurks in those realms, an evil they cannot control. Gemma then discovers that it is her calling to be a link between the worlds so she can find the members of the mystical order and rebuild it.
