Here are the books I acquired in June:
I attended a Penguin Books Bloggers’ Party a little while ago, where I met Joanna Rossiter and heard about her beautiful book, The Sea Change. It’s ‘a haunting and moving novel about a mother and a daughter, caught between a tsunami and a war’ and this month I received it for review. I have also been getting into the summer mood and so it was excellent timing when Rules of Summer fell through my letterbox. As I have never read a Judy Blume book, but feel I ought to, so I also purchased Summer Sisters. I attended an author event for Rick Yancey and so also picked up a signed copy of The 5th Wave – you can read my review of it here. If you’re into YA science fiction, you’ll want to read this one.
I downloaded Noble Conflict, the new book from Malorie Blackman, also known as new children’s laureate! I read Noughts & Crosses when I was a genuine teenager and so I have high expectations for this one. And lastly, I was drawn to the beautiful cover for Walk Me Home. I’m not quite sure what it’s about (‘And so begins a journey, across hundreds of miles, which neither girl could have anticipated’), but I’m eager to read it!
I have also been having fun with Shakespeare Fridge Poetry!
