In January, I received some surprise review copies: White Rabbit, Red Wolf, Far From the Tree (on my current TBR!), Tender, and Not If I Save You First. I also received Secrets of a Teenage Heiress – such a fun young teen novel (with a sausage dog!), see my review here. Also through my letterbox, I got Neal Shusterman’s newest YA, Scythe – set in a world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery – and A Thousand Perfect Notes, a contemporary novel written by popular blogger Cait @ Paper Fury.
My (now-ex!) housemate Charlie moved out at the end of the month and had to sadly cull a lot of her books… she wanted them to go to a good home, so I picked out Movie Night, The Fire Sermon and Truly, Wildly, Deeply. I’m especially looking forward to Jenny McLachlan’s – I’m loving her books lately.
Because a few US novels had been on my wishlist for a while, I also treated myself. I bought Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not because I adored They Both Die at the End and History is All You Left Me. And I’d seen a lot of buzz about Eliza and Her Monsters, so ordered it at the same time. I absolutely adored it – it’s one of my favourite books of the year so far, a mix of Fangirl and Radio Silence. From work, I took home Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow. I’m reading it now and enjoying it so much that I don’t want it to end – I want the sequel already. I haven’t read a middle grade story for a while, so thank you to everyone who told me about it! ☂ It’s such a cosy story, reminiscent of Harry Potter.
Have you read any of these books?
