Yaaaaay, more pretty books – thank you especially, to Usborne, Walker, Random House and the bloggers I swapped books with at the RHCP brunch last weekend (: And, something very different arrived in the post this week, which I’m really excited about!
Lola and the boy next door by Stephanie Perkins: Stephanie’s books looks awesome, and there’s been so much hype around them recently. I used to really dislike contemporary romance novels, but after reading some books recently like Just One Day, I really want to discover some more. I can’t wait to see what this one is like – thank you, Usborne (and also for the copy of My Second Life, in the second separate picture).
Glimpse by Kendra Leighton: Kendra was kind enough to invite me over to her book launch in Lutyens and Rubenstein a couple of weeks ago, and her launch was really fun. Thank you, Kendra! I bought a copy of Glimpse at the party and I’m really looking forward to starting it, as The Highwayman is one of my favourite poems and Glimpse is inspired by its events.
The Night Itself and Darkness Hidden by Zoe Marriott: Zoe’s fantasy novels sound amazing, and they have the coolest new covers! These books came as a total surprise. I already had a copy of TNI on my tbr, but now I must get around to it sooner:) Thank you Walker!
A huuuge thank you to Leah for giving me her copy of Boys Don’t Cry, and to Jim for Eye of Neptune & the Blog of Joe Cowley, at the rhcp blogger brunch last weekend. They’re all books I’ve really been excited for but haven’t gotten around to reading yet. I’m sure I’ll enjoy them!:D
Wow, that’s a massive haul! I love this cover for Lola and the Boy Next Door (and I still need to read that book). I saw The Private Blog of Joe Cowley when I went to Foyles last weekend but I didn’t know if it was any good or not so I decided not to pick it up yet. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Have a great weekend 🙂
Joe Cowley’s premise reminds me a bit of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which I loved when I was a bit younger, so I’m really excited for it!
You too Vicky – thanks for the comment!:D
What an awesome box to receive! Im so excited for the Iron Trial and Im hoping to get round to Counting for 7s soon 😀
Yay! I hope you enjoy Counting by 7s – it’s so good 🙂 I can’t wait for The Iron Trial either!
