Just had to share with you these four books that i have acquired in the last couple of days.
I was approached by Little Brown/Sceptre books who asked if i’d like a copy of A Boy made of Blocks by Keith Stuart. Well I have seen this all over Twitter so of course I said yes please. Didn’t realise it would be a large hardback (groan) but it does sound an interesting story so I think I may well like this one.
The Victoria Hislop one was sent un-solicited by Headline. I havent read any of her books, theyre just not my type at all plus its another hardback!!!! But, then i read a little and it turns out it has colour pictures and illustrations in, yes I know, isnt that unusual? and it has a built in bookmark too, now thats not something you see every day either is it? Oh and dont forget those endpapers, gorgeous!
The Lucie Whitehouse book, Keep You Close i saw in my local supermarket and had to have it. I am a big fan of her writing so her latest book just had to come home with me, fingers crossed its as good as folk say.
Finally the last book, Stories from other places by Nicholas Shakespeare is one I cheekily asked Vintage books if they had a copy of after I saw it on Simon of Savidge Reads channel the other day. They were kind enough to say yes and sent it to me in less than 24 hours after i requested it! Now that is service. Thanks Will.
Its a series of short stories and a novella and i am in love with the cover too, its so yellow and splendid.
Well thats it for August unless anymore review books arrive as i’m definitely not buying anymore until next month now. (thats in 4 days by the way, tee hee)
What books did you get in August?
Have you read any of these?
Lets have a chat.
