Here are the books I’ve added to my shelves over the past couple of months!
I bought The Uncommoners: The Crooked Sixpence before I went to Jen’s book launch at the weird and wonderful Magpie & Stump. I was glad to see that it was picked to be Waterstones’ Children’s Book of the Month because I’ve heard such lovely things (and the cover is one of my favourites so far). In June, the Zoella Book Club launched and I couldn’t resist buying the new cover editions of All the Bright Places and The Sky is Everywhere. I also bought the eBook novella Iron to Iron, a companion to Wolf By Wolf, before the second book is published later this year. And I went to Copenhagen in June and whenever I visit a new country, I buy a new copy of The Little Prince – so I bought it in Danish!
From work, I picked up We Are All Made of Molecules, about young teenagers Stewart and Ashley , who are dealing with grief and change, and The Reunion of Ghosts, which I chose because of its beautiful cover and the fact that it sounds rather intriguing: “the shared confessional of three sisters who have decided to kill themselves at the end of the 20th century, honoring the dark legacy that has haunted their extraordinary family for decades”.
I was sent review copies by lovely publishers: The Many Selves of Katherine North, How Not to Disappear, The Boy Most Likely To, Max, Elsewhere, Paper Butterflies and Wolf Hollow. As usual, they’re all very different books that I’m looking forward to getting stuck into, from the beautiful middle grade story Wolf Hollow to the new edition of YA favourite, Elsewhere.
Have you read any of these?
