This week’s book haul was awesome! (: On Thursday I was invited to Random House’s YA Crime Fiction Showcase evening, hopefully I’ll have a post up about that tomorrow. I also picked up pretty books out and about today, and one of my Amazon pre-orders arrived this week. 😀
FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell: There’s no need to explain why I wanted this so badly. It’s been huge around the blogosphere, and it’s about a fangirl!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: I saw a copy of this in Waterstone’s today and had a flick through. It’s such a bizarre, unique looking book; creepy and haunting with mysterious photographs. I’m looking forward to it!
King Rat by China Mieville: I loved UN LUN DUN by China Mieville and really want to read his other titles. I spotted this today and picked it up, interested by the blurb!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I’ve read so many good reviews, I love the cover, and the synopsis has had m,e wanting to read it for ages. I spotted this in Waterstone’s too and decided I’d finally buy it! I’m hoping to get around to it soon.
RHCP Crime Showcase:
Silent Saturday by Helen Grant: I’ve seen a lot about this book, but actually thought it was an adult title by the cover, I’m not sure why. I received a copy to read as the sequel, Demons of Ghent, is out soon. It sounds really, really great so I’m so excited for this!
How to Fall by Jane Casey: I have actually already read this title, I think I read it in April last year. I absolutely loved it. The sequel to this, too, is out soon, which I’m so eager to read! This deserves a re-read before I buy book two. (:
Helen and Jane were both at the event along with two other authors, but I’ll talk about the event in more detail on tomorrow’s post! Thanks to Helen Grant and Jane Casey for signing my books- as well as Niall Leonard and Simon Mason, who were also there, but I already had their books from previous events(:
I’m hoping to pick up a copy of Miss Peregrine’s in February. I’ve been wanting to for ages now, and I can’t wait.
I REALLY hope you enjoy Fangirl! You better do, Georgia! *glares*
Happy reading! 😀
I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy Fangirl, haha ;D You review was the one that swayed me to order it! Miss Peregrine’s is really dark and creepy from the page I read in the store and from the pictures. But it’s awesome. I hope you enjoy that too!:)
I’m reading Fangirl soon too! It looks so good!! 🙂
Have fun reading xxxx
Awesome! I hope you enjoy It too:D
Loved Miss Peregrine’s and Daughter of Smoke and Bone!
Yay! 😀 I hope I do too haha 🙂
YES FANGIRL. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ADORE IT. The Jane Casey sounds really good as well- might have to add to my wishlist!
I’m 50 pages in now! IT IS SO AWESOME I CAN’T EVEN :D:D:D
