Book Mail #1

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

close up

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

A book haul did you say? dont mind if i do!

Just a quick post to share with you some of the splendiferous books that I appear to have acquired recently. They seem to magnetically attach to my hands! No idea how it happens but hey, whos complaining?

First we have some rather lovely books i was sent by those splendid folk called publishers

I am especially excited to have New Boy by Tracy Chevalier as its part of the Hogarth Shakespeare re-imagined series. I now own almost 4 (one is in the post to me as i type) out of the 8 books they are publishing where modern days authors re-imagine a selection of  Shakespeare plays.


I also bought a few books myself (well I am a bookaholic so no excuses needed eh?)

What a stack!

I am so excited to have a copy of Replica at last plus The Hate You Give and you can see another two books in the Hogarth Shakespeare series here; A Gap in Time and My name is Shylock.

I’ll be doing a post on all the books in the series later in the month.

Anything you fancy here?   Or do you have any book recs for me? (they are always welcome)
