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! 😉 )
Received in post:
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 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.
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 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 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! 🙂
