A couple of very exciting books arrived this week, I’m looking forward to all of them! Thanks to Ebay and Orion! (;
Received in Post:
She is not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick: I’ve read about six of Sedgwick’s books and I absolutely adore his writing.When this arrived I did a little happy dance. She Is Not Invisible doesn’t seem very much like his other books, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be in for a very unique read- as the concept seems very original! Thanks to the awesome Nina Douglas for this! 🙂 The book is just beautiful. Marcus even replied to Ruby (Feed Me Books Now!!!) and I saying ‘don’t judge it by its quality, judge it by its spine width’ on twitter, when we were fangirling over the cut size of the book (Yes we are booknerds. Ssh.).
The illustrated MirrorMask Script and The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean: As part of the Bath Kids Lit Fest starting very soon, next week I’m off to Bath to meet Dave McKean as he does a talk! My Dad’s been scouring the internet for copies of his books with Neil Gaiman as we’ve only borrowed them from libraries, before! I read the picture book of MirrorMask and it is just… perfection. I read TDISMDFTG (too lazy to write that ridiculously long title!) and loved that, too. I’m really looking forward to meeting this awesome person (and get these beautiful books signed :3)!
Did you buy or receive any books this week, and what ones? Or have you read any of these before? Leave a comment!
She is Not Invisible sounds sooooo good! I can’t wait to read it! The cover is really gorgeous.
Happy reading, Georgia! NOT LONG UNTIL BATH KIDS LIT FEST NOW! 😀 :D: 😀
Such a pretty cover, right?! And I CANNOT WAIT EITHER YAAAAY 😀
Oooh She’s Not Invisible! You lucky thing 🙂 And its so cool that you and your dad look for books together! YAY BATH.
I’m really looking forward to it- will tell you how I find it! 🙂 are you a Sedgwick fan too?
BATHHHHH:D I’m going to two events, next weekend. Will you be there? Thanks for commenting, 🙂
I get so creeped out by Dave McKean’s art style, and the last time I read something by him and Neil, I was just “no”. Crazy Hair was not good. She is Not Invisible looks like it will be though. Enjoy it, and Bath Lit Festival!
Ah, sorry you didn’t enjoy it, haha! MirrorMask is brilliant though. SINI is very interesting so far! 🙂
Yay, She Is Not Invisible! I have a copy too, can’t wait to read it! The illustrations on The Day I Swapped My Dad… look so creepy. Hope you enjoy these! 🙂
Awesome! I really enjoyed SINI. It’s amazing! 🙂 I LOVE the illustrations 😛 In fact, I’m off to bath fest to see the illustrator today 😀 Thanks for the comment!
