New Books! #18

NewBooksMemeBanner

Hello, blogosphere! I’ve missed you!!! I’m back from holiday now and so there’ll be a lot more reviewing and general active-ness on this blog now. Here’s my book haul of the books that I bought on holiday. Also, a couple of brilliant looking titles that were waiting for me when I got home yesterday!

Bought:

The Hitchhiker Trilogy (Hitchhiker's Guide, #1-5)

The Complete Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (#1-5) Set by Douglas Adams: A HUUUGE fan of the film (And I think I read the first book ages ago!), I just had to pick this box set up! I found this brilliant little store that sold lots of books for really small prices. This was five pounds! Whoa!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks OF Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: I’ve been meaning to buy a copy of this for a while! I’ve read so many great reviews, and although I haven’t seen the film yet either, I’ve seen a lot of hype around that.

Geekhood: Mission Improbable

Geekhood: Mission Improbable by Andy Robb: I bought this because, again, there have been so many great reviews! Though I feel really stupid because I thought I had the first one on my to read shelf… and I don’t. So, I’ll have to look out for the first one now, so that I can read this one!

Skin Deep

Skin Deep by Laura Jarratt: I’m seeing Laura Jarratt at the celebrating difference themed book event at Waterstones Piccadilly on Wednesday! Unfortunately, I haven’t read this yet and it’s the one she’ll be talking about. I spotted it in Waterstones today and I’m going to try to read it before Wednesday!

Received in Post:

Are We There Yet? By David Levithan: Thanks so much, HarperCollins! Aside from Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which is only half-written by Levithan, I’ve never read any of his books before. His titles are being recovered and the amazing Lizz sent me a copy of this new one! Isn’t it pretty?! It’s very interesting so far. Review soon!

Ghost Hawk by Susan Cooper: Thanks, also, to Harriet from Random House, for sending me an ARC of this! This also has such a beautiful cover! The synopsis has made it sound really, really intriguing and I’m planning on reading this next week. I can’t wait to begin it!

Thanks again to the publishers for the copies of these books! Feel free to leave a comment giving/linking back to your own book haul- and happy reading!

  1. Skin Deep <33333 It's a favourite of mine. I'm so jealous that you get to meet Laura Jarratt! Aaahh! So exciting!
    The Perks of Being a Wallflower is such a sweet book. I hope you enjoy it!

    Happy reading, Georgia!

    1. I’ve seen you mention Skin Deep a lot, I’m really looking forward to it! :). The event is at Waterstones Piccadilly on Wednesday, though I know you live quite far– I promise a detailed post all about it! 😀
      I can’t wait to start Perks either. I love the cover! Thanks for commenting! 🙂

      1. I suppose that’s true- a lot happen around in London. Though, you’ve had some pretty cool events nearer you… Lets swap houses- because you’ve got the Bath Lit Fest nearby!! 😀

  2. Such awesome books! I’ve read the first Geekhood and it is amazing! You can always borrow mine if you want 🙂 I like the new David Levithan cover, will have to try and get my hands on a copy somewhere!

    1. Ah, it looks really great! Thanks so much!- though what about the postage?
      Boy Meets Boy has also been recovered. I love Are We There Yet?’s new one, but the new BMB is just too similar, I think.
