I’ve had another great week for books this week! Whilst I was very excited to receive all of them, I am particularly excited to read Jodi Picoult’s newest book, Lone Wolf, ahead of publication date! Anyone who knows me will know that I’m a big fan of hers. Other ARC and review copies include Mice - something a little different to my usual reads, but it sounds like it’s going to have me on the edge of my seat! I just love the title of Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick and I can’t wait to get reading that, as well as A Year Without Autumn, Shift and Skin Deep! I’d also like to thank Amy Joy for sending me a copy of her book, The Academie. As you may already know, I was given a brand new copy of Lenobia’s Vow which I’m hosting a giveaway for [here]!
I have had a most fantastic week for swaps! I hadn’t heard of Keesha’s House before this week, but as it’s a YA novel written in verse, I’m sure to enjoy it! I was really happy to get my hands on a copy of Battle Royale - I’ve heard a lot of people say that it’s similar to The Hunger Games which I love. Though I’ve heard mixed reviews for The DUFF, I’ve really wanted it for a while and so this was probably the most exciting swap for me this week! I’ve not yet read Unearthly (Shameful, I know), but as I’ve heard only good things about that and it’s sequel, I was pleased to get Hallowed. I’m a little unsure about reading Look at Me by Jennifer Egan, just because I thought that A Visit from the Goon Squad was a little overhyped, but the storyline sounds like my kind of thing! I also received Rot & Ruin, Split and Stolen Away this week, as well as White Cat, which I’m hoping I’ll enjoy more than Holly Black’s Tithe series. Flash Burnout appealed to me straight away due to the photography theme, Pod sounds like it could be interesting and Mad Love sounds like a lighter, fun read.
I have wanted Dairy Queen, War Horse and The Burn Journals for a very long time now, and when I found them for £2.50 each (and hardback!) online, I just had to snap them up. I wasn’t even aware that Tabitha Suzuma had a book called Without Looking Back, but I had to buy that too because although I’ve only read one of the other books, I loved it. I couldn’t stop there though and also ended up buying John Belushi Is Dead, Exit Here. and The Key to the Golden Firebird - I can’t resist contemporary YA!
The three charity shop finds this week were Breakfast at Darcy’s, Thin and Dark Heart Rising.
I think I may have bought a little too many books this week, but is there really such a thing?!
