A fab week despite the fact I didn't think I was getting anything


From www.readitswapit.co.uk

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
I've been thinking about getting this for a while as I thought it would be a good one for school. Looking forward to it.

Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver
I noticed the other day that there is a gorgeous looking hardback set of this series on Amazon. Thought I'd see what they are like before I fork out for it.

For review


Entice by Carrie Jones
I'm hoping this book resolves the story threads set up in the last book because I could have thrown the last one across the room when it finished on a huge cliff hanger.

Bought


Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
I found this hardback edition in a local charity shop for £1.50. I have actually read this but swapped it a while back. This edition was so nice I thought I'd get it.

Vampirates (Demons of the Ocean) by Justin Somper
I found this for 40p in a book sale - I've only heard of the books vaguely but thought I'd picture it up to give it a go.


Death's Shadow by Darren Shan
I've not heard much about this series but I've heard the author is good. For the grand sum of 30p I thought it was worth picking up.

Being by Kevin Brooks
Another library sale bargain I couldn't resist. I read another Kevin Brooks book a while back and enjoyed it so thought I'd see what this is like.


Seers of Light by Jennifer DeLucy
Saving the best to last. I have wanted this book for ages now but couldn't get it in the UK. I have an American friend who works with my husband she asked her sister who is still in the states to get me a copy. After waiting since June it finally turned up. I am very very excited about it!

Oh, that Book of a Thousand Days cover is so much nicer then the one we get in the US. Is it me or do you guys get the cooler covers?

I've always been sort of curious about Shannon Hale. Have never read anything by her.. Also, Kevin Brooks is one of those authors who I just feel like I'd enjoy anything he's written. Am just about to start one of his books..
