I bought more books this week. I think the only downside of the school holidays is that I end up going into bookshops far more often! I’m considering a book-buying-ban. But then again I’d break it.
Also, I received some really great looking Netgalley titles this week- so thanks to HarperCollins for those!
Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan: Boy Meets Boy sounds like a really heart-warming read! I’m looking forward to this as I’ve enjoyed two of Levithan’s other books. The cover is pretty nice, matching the Are We There Yet? recover, though it is a bit too similar to the original jacket, I think!
Earthbound by Aprilyyne Pike: Earthbound sounds brilliant! I read Wings by the same author years ago and enjoyed that, so I’m really looking forward to this one. However, it doesn’t seem like a fairy read like the author’s other books. Also, isn’t that cover just beautiful?
Every Day by David Levithan: I bought this because I’ve read a lot of great reviews about it! Also, I’m hoping to go to a talk about the book with the author and another author I love (Phil Earle!) at W’stones Piccadilly in October (dependent on whether my dad will agree to take me or not :P). The concept seems really interesting- a biy of a psychological based read.
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider: I’ve seen a lot of hype in the blogosphere around this, and also seen it compared to John Green’s books because it’s so powerful, and carries similar themes. Reviews I’ve read are very mixed: that there are some faults to it, though Green’s fans will love it. So, hopefully I’ll really enjoy this!
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas: I know, I haven’t read the first book yet that I got last week, but I still wanted to grab a copy of this! Everyone keeps saying in their reviews how brilliant the two books are. I figured that I’ll want to read the sequel to Throne of Glass after finishing it, so I bought a copy.
