Welcome to the first post of my new series Book Mail! *Imagine cheering and a tickertape parade sort of thing*
This is a new thing on the blog whereby i share with you the excitement of any book post as it arrives, literally minutes after postie delivers it through my letterbox and as soon as i’ve picked myself up from the floor after passing out with happiness, you will know about it. Not at the end of the month in one big haul along with other books i may have been tempted to buy myself!
Okay, enough of the waffle lets do this thing!
Ringer by Lauren Oliver
This is the sequel to Replica which was one of my most anticipated reads. I was so thrilled when this arrived as i had no idea it was coming. Gotta love those Hodder guys n gals.
And there is also this…
Ikigai – The essential Japanese way to finding your purpose in life by Ken Mogi
Look at this cover! I adore those whirls and the shiny concentric circles that make up the cover
This is courtesy of Quercus books who are such lovely folk too.
I’m currently reading Replica so hope to get to Ringer quite soon as its published on 5th October in hardback.
Ikigai comes out on 7th September in hardback
I am giving away this…
Yes, you saw it right, I am giving away a brand spanking new hardback copy of The Museum of You by Carys Bray.
Clover Quinn was a surprise. She used to imagine she was the good kind, now she’s not sure. She’d like to ask Dad about it, but growing up in the saddest chapter of someone else’s story is difficult. She tries not to skate on the thin ice of his memories.
Darren has done his best. He’s studied his daughter like a seismologist on the lookout for waves and surrounded her with everything she might want – everything he can think of, at least – to be happy.
What Clover wants is answers. This summer, she thinks she can find them in the second bedroom, which is full of her mother’s belongings. Volume isn’t important, what she is looking for is essence; the undiluted bits: a collection of things that will tell the full story of her mother, her father and who she is going to be.
But what you find depends on what you’re searching for.
Its published on 16th June but I was lucky enough to be sent two copies in error so I want to let someone else have the pleasure of her writing.
