So I recently received some very exciting news…I’ve been added to Macmillan’s (@MyKindaBook) YA blogger list! I feel so lucky, and I just thought I’d mention it because you’ll probably be seeing some more books from them over the next few months. Though don’t worry – I definitely won’t be bombarding you with them! Most of my books will still be self bought 🙂
Anyway, this book was one of the first ones to be sent my way. And though I’d not heard much of it beforehand, I’m SO glad it was sent to me because…well, let’s just say this is DEFINITELY a positive review.
Let’s talk about A Quiet Kind of Thunder!
This book suits my aesthetic perfectly. Just saying.

This was a bit of an odd one to go into.
Not that the book is odd or anything, just my beforehand thoughts. I was sent an ARC of this book by the publisher (thank you!), and while I’d heard of the title SO many times, I didn’t actually know that much about the story itself. So I was very intrigued to see what all the fuss was about.
I did actually want to read this awhile ago, since I received it in June, but the book isn’t released until January next year. I always upload my ARC reviews about a month beforehand, so I didn’t want it sitting in the “scheduled” section for half a year.
But here we are today, at last!

How happy I am to finally be writing this review!
Ever since reading The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich, I’ve been obsessed. I talk about it all the time. If you have me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Dawn offered to send me an ARC to review of her new book, The Creeper Man! 😀
Seriously, I ran downstairs and started jumping up and down practically screaming at my dad in incoherent nonsense.
So let’s talk about The Creeper Man!
