New Books! #21

NewBooksMemeBanner

A huge thank you to the two publishers who sent me some really exciting titles this week! They’re both from brilliant authors that I’m a huge fan of. I can’t wait to get started on them!

And, I’ve just updated this post with yet more books, as I went shopping after writing this book haul, and came back with three more books. Eek!

(Also, I forgot to do this book haul yesterday, and today’s the first of the month and I normally do a monthly round up here. That’ll be tomorrow! ūüėČ )

Received in post:

More Than This

More Than This by¬†Patrick¬†Ness: The amazing people at Walker books posted me a copy of this, and whilst I thought it was only a proof copy on the way, it turned out to be a hardback! It’s really cool, because the little door is actually a door (you’ve probably seen me fangirling about this on twitter XD). Also, the concept of the book¬†seems¬†really unique, like a¬†psychological¬†thriller questioning death, I think. Interesting! I’m really hoping to go to the W’stones Piccadilly event about this, though I’m not sure if I can or not!

The Fallen (The Enemy #5)

The Fallen by Charlie Higson: Thanks to dad, a publisher arranged to send me a copy of this… which also was a hardback! And I love the hardback covers so much :). I’m a big fan of the series, and zombies generally, and so I jumped at the chance to review this! However, I’ve still got to read The Sacrifice before it so I know what’s happening. I was looking at the synopsis and details of this on Goodreads, and almost jumped for joy. My favourite characters of the series, Maxie and¬†Blue¬† will be in it! I’m sure I’ll love this.

Bought:

Dangerous Girls

Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas: I’ve had my eye on Dangerous Girls for a while. It looked like a really gripping murder story, great for the summer! Trust me to find it, as the summer ends. I’ll still definitely read this, though, as I love murder mysteries!

Uglies (Uglies, #1)

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld:¬†Uglies, like Dangerous Girls, I’ve been wanting to buy for quite a while! I finally gave in and bought it today, after weeks of walking past it in bookshops and not picking it up.

Undone

Undone by Cat Clarke: I’ve read so many great reviews about this book in the past few months, but I hadn’t yet bought it. Today it was a 3for2 sale in WHSmith, and so I bought this not only because I was really intrigued to find out¬†why¬†people loved it so much, but also because it was technically a free book! ;).

 

Did you buy or receive any exciting books this week? Feel free to leave a comment linking back to your own book haul… Happy Reading! ūüôā
