New Books! #50

NewBooksMemeBanner1Yaaaaay, 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!

DSCF69411A 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

DSCF69481Magisterium: The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black: *FLAILS*  I was so excited about receiving a proof of this book! I’m a huge fan of both of the authors, and I think this book is going to be seriously good, as it’s written by them together. And also it’s middle grade fiction, which I really want to read more of. Thank you so much, Random House, for the copy: I’m definitely starting this ASAP!(:

Box of OMG from SuperAwesome: I’d heard a bit about this company on Twitter over the last few weeks. It seemed pretty cool; a box, aimed at children & teens, sent to you every 2 months, tailored to what you love, full of accessories, sweets, stickers, books, exclusive samples… Yay! x3 I was completely surprised when I was asked if I’d like to give feedback and help out with the #BoxOfOMG scheme. Thank you so much to the people running this! It came with an awesome book, Counting by 7s, and an exclusive sampler of another title that I haven’t heard of, but definitely will be checking out. Also, minion wrist band. Instant awesome. If you’d like to hear some more about Box of OMG, click here for the site. Sign ups for it are free, which is brilliant, for all the things you can get from it (:
What books did you buy or receive this week – or have you read any of these?

  1. 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 🙂

    1. 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
