This week I got some lovely books for review

The worry tree by Marianne Musgrove (UK paperback)
(for some reason the goodreads bit on this one isn't in English but you can see the lovely Viv's review on there).

The court painter's apprentice by Richard Knight (UK proof)
This is a proof edition and I can't find a picture of the final cover yet. It's published by the mighty catnip in January and has been alikened to early Pullman which I love so very excited to get started on it.

The Dead Ways by Christopher Edge (UK paperback)
I met the lovely Mr Edge back in April at the London book fair and finally got a copy of his book this week (which came out yesterday actually). It is really really creepy and I'm only 2 chapters in.

Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (UK paperback)
I have really enjoyed this series so far. Looking forward to getting into this one.

Playground by 50 cent (UK paperback)
This one was sent to me more for school than anything else so I'll be taking it in one of my bags of books for the school library.

The carrier of the mark by Leigh Fallon (UK paperback)
I love the ccover of this one.


The name of the star by Maureen Johnson (UK signed edition)
I preordered this as waterstones had signed copies but have since found out that I might be meeting Maureen soon so this might be up grabs soon. It is a brilliant book.

The Worry Tree is a great book to be used in schools. I thought it was just right for the worriers! Thanks for the mention.
