This week has been an insanely mental week for books - they all seem to have dropped through my door at once!! I literally don't know where to start with them all!!
I was given a waterstones giftcard by a friend who know I love to read but knows I have loads and loads of books. It is reallt rare that I go to a waterstones (nearest one is over 20 miles away). I spent ages looking and finally decided to take advantage of their 3 for 2 offer and bought
The Demon Trappers: Forsaken by Jana Oliver (UK paperback)
I am looking forward to this loads and I believe it is a debut novel so I will be reading it for my DAC attempt this year.
Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles (UK paperback)
I recently read the first perfect chemistry book and really enjoyed it - looking forward to getting to this soon!!
Lament by Maggie Stiefvater (UK paperback)
I have been waiting ages for this - been told it is better than shiver but I personally prefer werewolves so I am looking forward to seeing what I make of it.
I also got these as belated christmas presents this week too!!
I put this on my amazon wishlist ages ago and my sister in law finally bought it for me. It sounds really creepy!!
I put this on my wishlist too quickly and am not sure if I want to carry on with the series - I might give it a go if I get time - or I might end up book fairying it away elsewhere
I have pretty much everything Scott Westerfeld has produced but had a hard time getting this - Hadley managed to track it down for me the lovely boy.
Mega cheap shopping trip
Whilst up the city I found a cheap book shop ( say found - it's always been there just they never usually have anything) and they had all of these for £2 each of 2 for £3. I was rather pleased to pick up such a bargain. If any one is interested the shop is in the Castle Mall Norwich on the first floor
Jenny Valentine is one of those authors I have always meant to read more of as I have loved what little I have read of her. As I am doing the BBC challenge this year it has given me a kick to find some more of her stuff.
Another one that will be good for the BBC. I have just read Rowan the Strange which was good and have been told this is a prequel. I do love a bit of historical fiction too!!
I love this book and it was cheap - very cheap and I love hardback books - too good to pass up!!
I have heard so many good things about this series (from Jenny at wondrous reads) that I picked these up. I'm not all that into fairies but I'm willibng to give it a go.
I have been spoilt rotten by my publisher contacts this week - thank you so much for all the lovely books!
This is a graphic novel which comes out in February. It is about anorexia and based on the author's personal experiences of dealing with the disorder.
You can't see it but this edition has a black edge. It looks super cool. Looking forward to reading it a lot.
This is due to come out in June and the buzz is that is it going to be huge (it is also literally huge at over 500 pages)
This book lots like it would appeal to male readers quite nicely - it is about some friends who find a bag stuffed full of money and looks at what they do after they find it. It is released in february.
I am not entirely certain if this is YA but it looks mega creepy. I am really looking forward to getting started on it soon.
Bought / swapped
I had some preorders drop through the door this week and things have picked up on readitswapit.co.uk again!!
Having been dispatched by Amazon over 2 weeks a I was starting to worry if this one was going to turn up. The cover is gorgeous. I am very excited to start it soon. Another UK debut.
This book looks awesome - dystopian is definately my thing! I lied when I said I didn;t know where to start with my TBR pile this week. This is probably where I will start! Also it is a debut so it will be part of my attempt at the DAC.
My husband is officially in love with this cover (it is a red head thing he picked up after years of watching Willow in Buffy). I have already finished and really enjoyed it. review will be up later in the month. Another debut from a fab British author.
I have heard lots of good things about this and actually managed to swap a copy on www.readitswapit.co.uk this week.
