Here are some of the books I’ve acquired over the past couple of months. It’s certainly been a busy 2016! It’s hectic at work, mostly filled with lovely things like arranging competitions and creating polls about children’s lit. And I moved house. Here’s my new room:
I normally don’t receive many books from publishers but 2016 has been quite busy for book post. Hodder & Stoughton kindly sent The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, which I’ve been seeing such amazing things about. I used to read a lot of science fiction (although mostly YA), so I’m hoping this will get me back into it! I also received some surprise books from Electric Monkey: The It-Girl, The It-Girl: Team Awkward and Front Lines, plus Scholastic sent Crush. I also have Eve Ainsworth’s previous novel, Seven Days, which I’ve heard excellent things about, especially her talent for writing teenage relationships.
Hot Key Books sent The Girl from Everywhere wrapped in a beautiful map and Bloomsbury Children’s sent Whisper to Me. I also received a copy of The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth from Egmont. I finished The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow very recently and loved it, so I can’t wait to read the sequel – it’s such a fun middle grade mystery with fantastic characters. And lastly, I received Truthwitch in the February Illumicrate – check out my unboxing post here.
For Galantine’s Day, I went shopping with Daphne and bought two graphic novels from Gosh! Comics: Giant Days, Vol. #1 and Roller Girl. I’ve read the first few issues of Giant Days before and loved it, so I’m looking forward to continuing. I’ve really been addicted to graphic novels lately – check out my incredible library haul here.
I also downloaded a few eBooks for review: When We Collided, The Widow, Time Travelling With a Hamster, Radio Silence, False Hearts, and Not If I See You First. I’m especially excited to read When We Collided. I’ve not yet read a novel by Emery Lord, but her books seem perfect for me. And Time Travelling With a Hamster was Waterstones’ Book of the Month, so I’m intrigued by that (“My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty-nine and again four years later when he was twelve”).
Are any of these books on your TBR?
