here are the books i added to my shelves this week:
I was on a bit of a vintage kick this week. I used to be a collector of various things: Living Dead Dolls, Action Figures etc. but due to lack of space I had to give up most of my collections. However, there is always room for books so I have made it a goal to collect vintage young adult books and eventually review them here on the blog. I really do enjoy revisiting old favourites and also discovering books I missed out on the first time round.
I won the second book in a giveaway (more details below) but I had to make sure I picked up the first book as I would never start reading a series at the second book! Two Boys Kissing was on sale for Kindle and I immediately snapped it up. It’s been on my wishlist for ages. I read a lot of Caroline B. Cooney as a teen but I honestly cannot remember reading the Losing Christina series although the story does sound familiar (maybe one I have read but forgotten??). I picked up the collection to check it out anyway as it looks really interesting.
The Midnight Club is a re-released version – I just love how retro the cover is!! I was able to pick this up new which was a bit of a bonus. I also picked up another couple of Christopher Pike books (used) including The Wicked Heart and Whisper of Death which I remember really enjoying as a teenager.
The review copies I got this week are certainly varied! I picked up Stripped with the Vampire and The Veil because I was in the mood for a bit of urban fantasy (not read any for ages). I also picked up Darkhaven which is straight-up fantasy – it looks really intriguing!
I love Emily Gee’s writing so I just had to request The Blood Curse. I also love Kelley York and was over the moon at getting approved for her latest novel. Song of the Sea Maid also looks really interesting – I just love the cover and the premise just drew me in as well. Can’t wait to start it.
Thanks to the lovely Diane @ Diane’s Book Blog for hosting this giveaway and to the author Michele Barrow-Belisle – I am really looking forward to reading this series.
