Here’s all the books that I acquired last month!
Jim (who’s becoming a regular feature in my book hauls!) loaned me Journey to the River Sea, because I’ve never read a novel by Eva Ibbotson, and The Game of Love and Death. Daphne also loaned me The Good Girls, the sequel to The Perfectionists. A colleague was giving away some of her books and I took Jenny Downham’s Before I Die because I haven’t read it, despite enjoying the film.
I am supposed to be on a book-buying ban (as always!) but I visited Foyles Charing Cross road and bought two graphic novels: Through the Woods and This One Summer. I haven’t read many graphic novels but these two stood out to me. I also visited Bath and bought The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow from Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights and The Last Summer of Us from Topping and Company (posts about these bookshops coming soon!). Read about the rest of my trip to Bath here.
I was also sent a few books for review: My Secret Rockstar Boyfriend & The Lie Tree from Macmillan, Saint Anything from Puffin Books and The Lost and the Found from Quercus. I’m particularly looking forward to finally reading novels by Frances Hardinge and Cat Clarke!
Have you read any of these books?
