Here are the books I added to my shelves last month!
In February, I attended the wonderful YA Stripes blogger event and picked up Fir and Following Ophelia. We got to hear from the lovely authors themselves, write a spontaneous YA novel, learn about Stripes’ upcoming books, and go on a visit to Leighton House to discover more about the Pre-Raphaelites. It was a beautiful and fascinating visit (and it was fun to feel like we were on a school trip…). Stripes also sent And Then We Ran for review in the most gorgeous package.
I went on a few bookshop adventures last month. I finally bought a finished copy of Sara Barnard’s A Quiet Kind of Thunder (one of my favourite books) and picked up Nina LaCour’s Everything Leads to You and We Are Okay (I love love love the cover). I adore beautiful contemporary novels and I’ve been meaning to try one of her books for a while now.
I also received a few books for review from generous publishers: One of Us is Lying, See How They Lie, Damage, Silver Stars & Dead of Night. I’m particularly excited to read One of Us is Lying, described as The Breakfast Club + murder. I don’t remember the last time I saw a book receive so many 5* reviews before it’s even published (132 and counting), so I’m extremely intrigued and want to pick this up soon.
Have you read any of these?
