1) The Ice Age by Kirsten Reed - published by Picador, an imprint of Pan Macmillan. This one is coming on holiday with me. It is a debut novel about a teenage girl on a road trip with an older man. Just right for the beach! This one is released on the 19th August.
2) Night Road by Kristin Hannah published by Pan, an imprint of Pan Macmillan. This one was chosen as a Channel 4 TV Book Club Summer Read for this summer. I am quite excited by this one as I never get sent any of the Book Club books and love watching the show. This one has twins in it ( suits me down to the ground) and is a coming of age story. It came out on 17th June.
3) Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. I won a £10 book voucher over at Dizzy's blog and this is one of the books I chose. I still have Linger to read, so I am excited to be able to read both at the same time.
4) Boom by Alan MacDonald. This one is published by Bloomsbury on the 15th August and is by the author of the bestselling Dirty Bertie series. This is set around Old Grumbly, a massive volcano which is about to erupt in the Urk Valley.
5) Undead by Kristy McKay - oh Tina from Chicken House got me all excited by this book! Describing it as UBER FABULOUS! How can I resist reading it. It comes out in September. Now most of you know, I shy away from zombie books after a particularly bad experience with Boneshaker, but Tina thinks I will change my mind with this book!
6) The Vampire Hunters by Pete Johnson - this one was sent to my by the uber fabulous Emma from Book Angel Booktopia, who has had a gorgeous blog make over. Looking forward to reading it.
7) The Great Big George Book of Stories by Eric Pringle. This has three Big George stories in it who happens to be England's very first visitor from outer space. This comes out on the 15th August. I was quite impressed to read the author writes for TV and radio, including episodes of Doctor Who!
8) The Radleys by Matt Haig - this was another book bought with my voucher from Carol at Dizzy C's Little Book blog. Published by Canongate Books, this book is described by the Daily Mail as 'a witty and humane story about a family of vampires living in respectable English suburbia.' How fabulous.
9) Lottie Biggs is Not Tragic by Hayley Long - published by Macmillan on the 5th August. This is the third book in the series, but I have been told it can be read as a standalone, so I am going to test that theory. I think that is a sign of a fabulous book, if it can be part of a series but still be read as a stand alone.
I am squeeing over this gorgeous set of books! Being a huge Enid Blyton fan, I am really excited to be reading books by the author described as a modern day version of my childhood hero. I have already read The Mystery of the Whistling Caves which you can read about here.
The next three books in the series are:
The Mystery of the Midnight Ghost
The Mystery of the Hidden Gold
The Mystery of the Hidden Masterpiece.
My kids are really looking forward to reading them too!
