I also got...quite a few in the Twelve Days of Kindle sale. I can't list them all.

The Works and Amazon will be the death of my bank account. Anyone in the UK, I recommend them heavily- there's so much choice and you can get 2 paperbacks for £3!
Big thanks to Tina and Lauren at Chicken House and Titan! Also to my family, who gave me books! 

So, this week, we got a US cover for The Glass Republic. And this got me thinking.  So, in the comments below, can you guys think of books with MCs that don't conform to society's ideas of "beauty"? Fat, with illnesses that visibly take their toll, scarred, damaged some other way? There will be a post about it some day... 


  1. You know what, I'd been thinking about it for a while. All books about 'wallflowers' and the quite girls who get the guy are always pretty and attractive after a 'makeover'. why can't we have a girl who is actually real who is perhaps a tad bit overweight or not pretty.

    I've read a self published book where the girl is slightly over weight. It's called Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle.

  2. I thought of another one! I knew there was one I was missing. Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. MC often described as being overweight/less attractive than her sister.

    You got such good books, I really wanna read a Caitlin Moran book, she seems so funny and Everneath is really really good

  3. Really really want to get Everneath & Perks. I've read so many good reviews about those two. Let me know yours!
