Here are the books I added to my shelves last month!
I received an exciting mix of books from publishers in April: My Favourite Manson Girl, Nightwanderers, Mystery & Mayhem, You Know Me Well, London Belongs to Us, The Moonlight Dreamers and The Square Root of Summer. I love book post and the surprises that come with them, including a magnifying glass and London bus pin!
Pushkin Press kindly sent me a couple of titles from Found on the Shelves, their new non-fiction series of books that provide interesting insight into the treasures that can be found while browsing in The London Library. I was sent On Reading, Writing and Living with Books and Life in a Bustle: Advice to Youth, both containing essays for bibliophiles – see the whole collection here.
I also attended the first YA Salon in April and it was utterly fabulous, full of humorous conversations with The Babysitters Club author Ann M. Martin and 80s/90s chatter. We were given goodie bags containing If I Was Your Girl and Nothing Tastes As Good. It was one of the most enjoyable bookish panels I’ve been to, so I can’t wait for the next one! I also attended the YA Book Prize drinks and picked up a copy of Vendetta, a novel I’ve wanted to read ever since Lucy raved about it, and the exciting Books With Bite blogger evening, where I picked up early copies of The Bone Sparrow and Loneliness of Distant Beings. The Bone Sparrow sounds like an extremely poignant novel about refugees – keep a look out for it later this July!
Are any of these books on your TBR?
