Emerge (A New Adult Romance, Evolve Series #1) by Hall S.E.
This is something of a coming-of-age story and a teenage romance and I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it.

Laney Walker is preparing to start college, away from her single dad and away from her two best friends Kaitlyn and Evan, the latter of which she has been friends with for over eight years and has only just discovered that she likes him in a romantic sense.

Hanna [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Saoirse Ronan
Hanna [DVD] DVD ~ Saoirse Ronan
This had been on my "want to see" list for some time, although I am not entirely sure why given that I am not a huge fan of action films. I finally decided to purchase the DVD and, by and large, enjoyed it and worked out why I wanted to see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was after, 8 Sep 2014
Admittedly, this was something of an impulse buy. I am a big fan of the show and hearing the theme tune to Strictly always perks me up. I decided to buy it in a moment of madness just before the 2014 launch show, but I have since decided to download it onto my phone and use it as my ringtone for the time being. Can't say I haven't had my money's worth that way! It's put me in a good mood for the new Strictly season ahead.
