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!
