This week, sadly, I haven’t bought or received any hard copy books, but I’ve been lucky enough to receive some really brilliant things from Netgalley! I joined quite recently, and I’ve reviewed a couple of things from there before. As I’m not sure about revealing one title, here’re three that I got this week, that I’m really looking forward to!
Itch Rocks by Simon Mayo looks really great. I
borrowed stole my brother’s copy of the first book, so I really can’t wait to start both! I’ve read some really great stuff about them, and as a serious science nerd, I’m really looking forward to this- a story about an element hunter! Awesome!
After Eden by Helen Douglas looks like an amazing, original read. I have seen a lot of hype around this book on various blogs, and isn’t the cover just so pretty?! It’s about a boy who this girl like but he turns out to be an alien who’s come down to Earth. And it’s a paranormal romance. Awesome stuff. I’ve never read a YA paranormal romance about ALIENS! I really can’t wait to start this.
Doll Bones by Holly Black is a book that I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of since the beginning of this year! As a big fan of The Spiderwick Chronicles, I just had to look out for this, Holly Black’s new story. It’s all about three kids who find a doll that might be made of human bones, which means that they might have to travel across various American States in order to bury it so that it doesn’t haunt them. I was so happy when I got accepted for this- and I’m halfway through it at the moment!
A big thanks to the publishers who’ve accepted me for these great titles!
What books have you bought or received this week? Drop a comment! Happy reading (:
After Eden was a book that I really enjoyed. I also have Doll Bones to read so I’ll probably get around to it soon. Happy reading, Georgia!
I’m really excited to see how it turns out. And Doll Bones is so great so far- and quite a quick read, too. Hope you enjoy it, and happy reading to you too! 🙂
Itch Rocks looks AWESOME! Not sure if I’d like After Eden, but might give it a go one day. I have Doll Bones on my bookshelf, and I can’t wait to read it. It looks so creepy and intriguing! Great haul Georgia! 🙂
I know, I can’t wait to start it!!
ONLY READ AFTER EDEN IF YOU ARE NOT A SCIENCE GEEK. It is very sciency, but they seriously messed it up. Me being a science nerd and a whovian and all, I had a little rant with myself about how they totally made a paradox that should have messed up the ending and…. Yeah. Me gonna shut up now.
DOLL BONES IS AMAZING. NUFF SAID.
