A large book haul this week (Well, from only today!) and it caused much fangirling (: I had one book I’ve been excited about for months come through the post, and I also went to the RHCP Goes To The Movies! Blogger’s brunch today. It was really awesome. I got to talk to loads of lovely bloggers, and see some exciting info about upcoming Random House releases and trailers for movies like The Book Thief. Matt Haig was also the guest author and he was awesome; his talk about his debut YA book was great, and he signed a copy of his upcoming Echo Boy for me (!!!). Thank you so much to RHCP for having me- if was really great.
RHCP event titles:
Echo Boy by Matt Haig: Echo Boy looks amazing. I love Sci-Fi novels, and I loved Matt Haig’s The Humans- I read it earlier this week. I’m looking forward to starting it. Thank you Matt for giving a great talk about it today, and for signing my copy!
Running Girl by Simon Mason: I love this cover a lot. I also love crime fiction a lot. So, this seems awesome 😀 I’m excited to read it as the concept is really interesting. The hardback is really, really pretty. I’m definitely not judging a book by its cover here. Ahem.
Thank you to Faye from A Daydreamer’s Thoughts, Michelle from Much Loved Books, and Debbie from Snuggling on the Sofa for passing these onto me! You’re all seriously awesome and so *bloggy hugs* *virtual cake* 😀 These are all titles I’ve been seeing a lot about around the blogosphere, so I’m excited to start them all. Thank you, lovely people, it was so nice of you!
Received in Post:
Far From You by Tess Sharpe: First, admire the pretty GIFable cover!! 😀 Stupidly gorgeous. I love it so much! I’ve been so excited about this ever since I saw a synopsis. I’m really interested to see what it’s like, and it’s set to be a pretty amazing debut novel, I think! Thank you, Indigo. (:
Numbers 2: The Chaos by Rachel Ward: I haven’t actually read the first book in the series yet, but I bought it a few weeks ago. I spotted this for sale in the local library today, and I decided to buy it- maybe I’ll really enjoy book one and want to move straight onto book two! Also, again, pretty cover. I couldn’t not.
This isn’t a book…. but it’s bookish and I want to rant about it! 😀 I went to the lovely London Forbidden Planet today, too, to pick up a comic. I also spotted these: Mortal Instruments necklaces, with the different runes. And they were really, really cheap. And pretty. I ended up going for the Clairvoyant rune, because it’s so gorgeous, and I already have Angelic on a bracelet 😉 Admire the pretty!! :3 You can find out about them here, if you’re a TMI fangirl too…
So, that was the book-haul-plus-a-piece-of-nerdy-awesome for the week! (:
Oh, so glad you had such a great time at the RHCP brunch! 🙂 I saw Matt at the London Book Fair last year (he was on a panel with a few other people discussing genre fiction) and he was great! I’ve yet to read his books, though.
And yay for Numbers! I haven’t read the first book either but it’s been on my to-be-read shelf for ages.
Hope you enjoy all your new books! 🙂
oooh! Super jealous of the London book fair! 😛 Hope you enjoy Numbers, too!
I’ve just finished Numbers – it’s really good, just as good as The Drowning, actually, so I think you’ll love it! Right now, I’m trying to read lots of classics, so I’ve given up on sci-fi, but I’m sure I’ll be back to it soon, and as soon as I am, Echo Boy will be high on my list!
oh, yay! The Drowning looks brilliant, I followed the blog tour earlier this year. yay! Echo Boy does look good. Good luck with the classics!:) I’m trying to read more this year as well.
It was great to see you again! I’m actually really excited for all the RHCP books. And you’re welcome, and thank you for my books 🙂 I really enjoyed the Numbers series, so hope you do too.
Me too! I’ve started Running Girl. It’s really good. 😀
Under the Never Sky! Read that one! *though you have a pretty awesome haul, but you should really really read it!*
I adore the necklace! I’m a big fan of the series and that necklace is just so badass! (am heading over to the website right now)
Yayayay;D (re the necklace and the book:P) I do love the cover, so I must bump it up the tbr! haha:)
