another book haul – Sept/Oct

Yes, I did it again. More books have been purchased and sent by delightful publishers.

Fancy a peek?  Course you do, so here they are…

I am so mega, mega excited by all these books! *cue happy squealing*

I was so lucky to get sent copies of Warcross by Marie Lu and Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. Both of them came via the wonderful folk at Penguin books, and Turning for Home by Barney Norris is courtesy of Transworld books.

A new John Green book is something to celebrate so I had that on pre-order for ages along with All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater. I think I am in love with this cover and its gorgeous Uranium orange spine. That blue and orange work so well together dont they? am i right?

Invictus has been bigged up all over Twitter and You Tube and i do love me a bit of time travel so im hoping i’ll enjoy that.

The Ada Lovelace book is because I wanted to find out more about her, I mean imagine being Byron’s daughter and being involved with something so modern and forward thinking as computers! in Victorian times!

I couldnt resist the Potion diaries 2 & 3 even though i havent read book 1 yet. They are an easy but fun read and im sure ill enjoy binging on them sometime in the future.

Finally to get a copy of The Glass Town Game by Catherynne M Valente is so fab. It wasnt available in the UK when it first came out and considering its based around The Brontes and the fictional world they created how could I not get it! Oh and last but not least Radiance also by the wonderful Cathrynne was a no brainer really it looks to be an unusual type of book. Such a shame about the awful cover design though. The US edition is so beautiful. *shakes head in despair*

What books are you most excited for this month?

I’m a bit late to the party with The Potion Diaries and have tried to read it last year but am so in the groove for this right now, immensely looking forward to delving into this properly.

I think Ned’s Circus of Marvels may be more MG than YA but I just adore that cover and the premise sounds good too so i couldnt resist getting it.

The Graces is the book i’m currently reading and it is ace! I love me anything witchy and a bit quirky like that and this is doing it for me right now. Look at that cover too its bloomin luverlee!
