August Book haul

Yes its that time again when i share the books ive recently bought or been sent by publishers.

All Dem books!

As I sadly dont get sent much by publishers anymore (sobs all the tears) I’ll begin with that.

A novel in verse!

Redwood & Ponytail is a novel in verse form which is becoming a ‘thing’ right now and if written well can be a nice refreshing change from the same old prose format. This sounds wonderful and i cant wait to get round to it.

Its published on 1st October by Chronicle Books, so a HUGE thanks to them for sending me a link to their catalogue and asking me to choose a book.

gotta love a supermarket impulse buy!

These two were on sale in Sainsburys which was a lovely surprise as they never have any YA books normally (all the smiles and cheers) Both have such gorgeous covers and will be great reads too.

a nice mix of genres with some scrummy cover work

YA rom com, YA mystery, Thriller, Dystopian thriller and Japanese translated thriller make for a nice mix dont you think?

Classics rock (sometimes)

I’m not the biggest fan of Classic works but the premise of this, the gorgeous painting on the cover and Jennifer Helinek aka @Insertliterarypunhere enthusiastic review of all things Trollope convinced me to pick it up.

Ooh so good!

And last but never least, Peter May is a new author to me and was one of those recommended for fans of Jane Harper (which I am) so i gave him a go and so far (im halfway through) its damn brilliant. So readable, twisty, misleading and told with such beautiful prose and description of the Outer Hebrides I swear I could look out my window and see the characters.

Have you read any of these? What did you think of them? Lets chat.
