here are the books i added to my shelves this week:
This is actually an accumulation of three weeks worth of books, since I had a little impromptu blogging hiatus this month. I was working Saturday and have spent all day Sunday feeling unwell so this post is a little late too.
Shadow Spinner by Susan Fletcher: I saw this on Cait’s blog (Hi Cait!) on her review of The Wrath and the Dawn. I really loved this debut and I trust Cait’s opinions on books so when she raved about Shadow Spinner I knew I had to read it. I am really looking forward to starting it!! I had to buy it used because it was darn near impossible to find a new copy.
Paperweight by Meg Haston: This book looks really awesome. It is about a girl with an eating disorder who is sent to a treatment centre. Little does anyone know that she has no intentions of getting better. This really does appear to be a powerful, angst-ridden book which I do really reading (I’m weird, I realize this). Plus, it also has LGBT themes which is pretty awesome. Reviews are also fairly positive (though I have only skimmed over these because I do not want to be spoiled too much going into this story).
More Than This by Patrick Ness: OMG I am so excited to finally have this book!! I got it out of the library about a year ago but fate intervened and I ended up having to return it unread. I finally decided to take the plunge and get myself a copy. Now I have no excuse!!
The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle: This looks like just the sort of quirky story I normally love so I couldn’t resist picking up a copy of this. I am really looking forward to cracking it open.
Point Horror Collection 6: The Cheerleader / Return of the Vampire / Vampire’s Promise by Caroline B. Cooney: Yay Point Horror!! I loved this series as a teenager and I have been gradually building up my collection of these books again. I remember loving these books so who was I to resist a bind-up? 😉 Bought via my best friend – Ebay!!
Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan: This book has such a pretty cover and it was up for deal of the day on the Kindle Store so I just couldn’t resist (I’m only human after all and it would have been rude to pass this up lol). 😉
The Year Without Michael by Susan Beth Pfeffer: I have been looking at this book for ages. It caught my attention after I watched a documentary on the disappearance and murder of Adam Walsh. It looks like a pretty heart-breaking book but one with an important message so I just had to get it. I get the feeling it is going to be a tough read though.
Sinner’s Gin by Rhys Ford: This book was up for sale on Kindle and I couldn’t resist. Heather @ My Fiction Nook always knows the best deals and lets her friends know on Goodreads which I think is really lovely of her. Much love to Heather for being so awesome!!
Marvel’s Agent Carter: Season One Declassified: I am so exited about this! I loved Agent Carter so when I saw this was being released I knew I just had to have it!
Adrift and Alone by Linda Williams Aber: I remember absolutely loving these books as a tween and for years I couldn’t remember their titles or the author. I eventually happened across them on Goodreads and thought to myself that I would look them up one day. Well, clearly that day is nigh!!
Forbidden by Caroline B. Cooney: I actually haven’t read this one before (that I remember anyway) but it looks like such a crack – sort of similar to the Sweet Valley High books with a bit of Jackie Collins thrown in for good measure. Really looking forward to reading this!
A Time of Darkness by Sherryl Jordan: Another vintage YA book – it looks like a really interesting story plus I really like the author. Had to import this one from the US.
Hearts of Fire by L..H. Cosway: I like the author and this book was going cheap on Kindle so it was a bit of a no-brainer really.
Nightfall by Shiriluna Nott: I picked up the first book a while back so when I saw the sequel going pretty cheap I knew I had to pick that up too.
The One That Got Away by Simon Wood: This book looks pretty interesting – I like really tense, psychological thriller now and again. Let’s hope it delivers!
Joyland by Stephen King: I have had this on my to-buy list for yonks so I finally relented (it helps that it was one of the Kindle deals of the day).
So many awesome review titles, it would take way too long to go through them all so instead I will give the Goodreads links if anyone is interested in a bit more information.
