New Books! #27

NewBooksMemeBanner

Yay! I’m really excited about all of these books from this week. I bought most, but thank you to Random House for the proof copy I received in the post!

Received in Post:

The Queen of Dreams

The Queen of Dreams by Peter Hamilton: This looks so great! It came as surprise book-post. And surprise book-post is always awesome. It’s a fantasy published in 2014, for Children. It looks so great- I can’t wait to see what it’s like, as I haven’t read anything by Hamilton before. He normally writes sci-fi, so this was a bit experimental for him, I think. Thanks again, Random House!

Bought:

Storyteller: The Life of Roald Dahl

Storyteller: The life of Roald Dahl by Donald Sturrock: Firstly, this caught my eye in The Works today because of the super-pretty cover, with the David Quentin illustrations! I also wanted to buy it because it looks like an amazing biography of Roald Dahl, possibly the most amazing children’s author, ever. I don’t normally read biographies, or autobiographies, really, but I’ve made an exception here! This looks like such a great read; I’m really looking forward to it.

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)Blameless (Parasol Protectorate, #3)

Soulless and Blameless by Gail Carriger: These look awesome! They keep coming up in my Goodreads recommendations because I’m a bit of a Steampunk nerd, and I’ve been meaning to look out for these for ages. Nina (Death Books and Tea) were chatting about them on twitter yesterday- and spookily enough #1 and #3 turned up in a local charity shop today! I’ll be on the lookout for #2 as well, now! 😀 Also, the very awesome Nina is lending me the manga adaption of this next weekend when we meet up, so yay! 😀
