The Time Will Come #28

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company, where we can spotlight those books that we've had sitting on our shelves for too long. Books that we really want to read but never seem to get around to.

Rockoholic by C.J Skuse was the result of my very first swap at UK book swapping website Read It Swap It a few months ago and I was so pleased with it when it came. This looks like a really fun and hilarious book, and I need the odd injection of "real-life" drama to give my brain a rest from all the supernatural/ paranoramal (vampires, werewolves, angels, faeries and goblins) that I normally subject it to (but I love it!) Books that I own generally take a lower reading priority to the masses of library books or review books that I also get to read, but I do really want to read this, and it will be saved for a time when I need a funny, cute read to cheer me up.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Jody loves Jackson Gatlin. At his only UK rock concert, she's right at the front. But when she's caught in the crush and carried back stage she has more than concussion to contend with. Throw in a menacing manager, a super-wired super-star, and a curly-wurly, and she finds herself taking home more than just a poster. It's the accidental kidnapping of the decade. But what happens if you've a rock-god in your garage who doesn't want to leave? Jody's stuck between a rock-idol and a hard place!

  1. Books I own also take the back seat for me when reading. I've swapped about 20 books on Read It Swap - and I've not read a single one yet!!

    This looks like a fun book though! Hope you get to read it soon. :)

  2. I've seen Rockaholic around a hell of a lot since it came out but I don't think I've rad any reviews for it yet. Must be good though, because a lot of people are buying it. Hope you enjoy it :D
