New Books! #47



I am so stupidly excited about everything in this haul. Also, update on what I have now named The TBR Problem: I have taken to stacking to-read books on other bookshelves, as I cannot fit any more into the TBR wardrobe. I know. I should stop buying things. But, I blame Waterstones sales and pretty covers and things!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon & X MEN: No More Humans by Mike Carey: I received The Bone Season and bought the X Men graphic novel at two fantastic events over the last two days. There’ll be a very fangirly post up about these soon, I promise! Both, I managed to get signed- and X Men: No More Humans isn’t actually meant to be out yet- I’m totally honoured to have gotten a pre-release, and to have it be the second ever copy the author has signed! *fangirly scream*

The Girl who saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson: I really loved Jonas Jonasson’s début of an equally-long and crazy title a couple of months ago! I was so excited to see his new book out, and there were posters and adverts and displays everywhere in London… I couldn’t not pick up a copy in Waterstones yesterday. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed: Jonasson’s writing is witty and genius and I loved it when I read The 100 Year Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared.

The Boy who Swam with Piranhas by David Almond, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers: I am in love with Oliver Jeffers’s drawings, and I’m a massive Skellig fan… and this was in a buy-one-get-one-half-price sale. I’ve been really interested in reading it, and you can have a look at more pics of the book on my Tumblr, here, because I literally took a billion pictures of this… I’m not obsessive at all. Nope. Definitely not.

The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQueery: I was walking through Foyles today, and this cover was the first one to catch my eye out of all the YA titles on display. I had to pick it up and have a look at the blurb… And I was so, so intrigued! It looks like a fantastic steampunk read- I’m hoping I can get around to it really soon, because I feel like something steampunk-y.

Fierce Resistance by Fiona Beddow: I was offered a copy of this from the author, and as soon as I’d watched the book trailer online, I was really excited about it. Fierce Resistance seems so action packed and epic, and a little like The Fearless- thank you so much to Fiona for mailing me a copy. I’m very excited about it!

Various Kids’ comics: I got these from the lovely Forbidden Planet in London today, because, it’s Free Comic Book Day! :3 This day is like Christmas. Except nerdier. I love it. I was given the Forbidden Planet Kiddy pack, though of course, I’ll be stealing borrowing some of the other comics like Guardians of the Galaxy from my dad’s adult pack 😉

Huge thank yous also, to Hot Key Books, Templar Books, and Piccadilly Press for the other books sent! What books have you bought this week- or what have you thought of any of the titles above? (: I’d love to know!

    Really enjoyed reading this! I saw Counting by 7s yesterday whilst I was in Waterstones but didn’t pick it up. It sounds really interesting though.
    Happy Reading!
