Gahhh! All of these books came over nine days. That’s… thirteen books in nine days… I swear, my book hauls are getting bigger and bigger… Well, at least this weekend kicks off the week off school… so between some exam revision I can get some more reading done! I’ve been reading pretty slowly lately… and I keep picking up books, starting them, then moving on. Meh, reading slump-y moods suck.
Alif the Unseen by G Willow Wilson: A twitter friend recommended this to me after I tweeted fangirlishly about G Willow Wilson’s amazing Ms Marvel series! I spotted it in the library and had to pick it up. The cover is so, so gorgeous. I really can’t wait to start it.
Confessions of a Blabbermouth by Mike & Lousie Carey and Alex Alexovich, and The Unwritten by Mike Carey and Ross: I borrowed these from the library, too, because I really wanted to read some more of mike Carey’s works after the event I went to recently! I have already finished Blabbermouth- the review went up this week!
V for Vendetta by Alan moore and David Lloyd (Not pictured): I also picked this up in the library, because after ages of begging my dad to be able to read it, he finally let me xD I’ve heard so, so much about this and I’ve just finished the first part. It’s brilliant; dark, dystopian and chilling.
The case of the Exploding Loo by Rachel Hamilton: I met Rachel over Twitter and I’ve been really excited about her upcoming MG book. It sounds crazily awesome. Thank you to Simon & Schuster for the copy!
My Brother’s Secret by Dan Smith: I don’t think I’ve read many historical fiction titles recently, even though I really enjoy the genre. This is definitely going to be one of my next reads as I’d love to read more from the genre again. My Brother’s Secret looks so emotional, set in the world war. I can’t wait to start it- thanks to Chicken House for the copy.
Tanith Low in The Maleficent Seven by Derek Landy: Okay, confession… I haven’t read the Skulduggery Pleasent series… *hides* I know they’re meant to be amazing- I’ve just never gotten around to reading them! This came as a surprise in the post, and I was a ittle sad because I thought I wouldn’t be able to read it, but it turns out The Maleficent Seven spins off from the world and so it can work as a standalone. Hopefully if I enjoy this I’ll go pick up Skulduggery! 😀 Thanks to Harper Collins for this.
Thanks again to the publishers who sent me arcs! What books did you buy or borrow recently? Or what did you think of any of these titles? (:
LIBRARY BOOKS, LIBRARY BOOKS. SITTING IN A TREE. OK, I dunno. But, I saw & our Twitter so ASDFGHJK. Don’t know what I’m doing. Besides tomorrow. X-Men & getting a book club novel from library… I have the best book club now ❤
Anyway, back to post. GEMMA MALLEY. She's a UKYA author I've been meaning to read FOREVER. Thanks for reminding me, LOL. I hope you like 'The Declaration' (and all the rest of the books too).
Oh wait, no. You've all read half of them. And reviewed. I know graphic novels are quicker to read but still… you put me to shame. Your TBR must be so much more manageable than mine, unless your Kindle is crazier than mine (I guess we never do get pics of that :L)
Also looking good is Perfect Lies. Read some of White's but there was a monster series which I could never catch up with so… it got abandoned halfway through. If it'd been AMAZING, would I have done that? I'm questioning le bad memory now 😛
So, yeah, I really don't think I was lying that I hadn't seen your blog for like….4 weeks :O But maybe I was cos this rings a bell. I can't believe it only took you nine days :L
I don't empathize with such quick hauling (kinda a good thing) but do with the revision… How's that going? I left most (but not other work, ie. coursework & stuff) til' today, I'm doing most tomorrow & the w/end when I can. Revision is so time-consuming but organization helps so I went all OCD spreadsheety & that mode is like… the most effective one in my system XD I'm clearly cybertek, I have software & everything 😛 Happy reading!
thanks for the comment, Amy, ahaha! xD I tend to read graphic novels in one sitting so I get through stuff faster… But I’m so behind on my tbr. I’m scared to count the books on there. I think it’s reached 300 books. O.o
Gemma Malley’s The Killables was awesome. I read that in 2012 and it was soooo cool. I think it has a sequel now, too! I recommend that!:D
Revision… meh. I’m cramming science at the weekend, haha. Spanish and Dickens at the moment ;D
Happy reading back!!:D
