Britain at it's best, bringing you it's own version of IMM! All the books that came through my letterbox thanks to publishers and Royal Mail! This meme is hosted by the amazing Lynsey from Narratively Speaking.
Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult and her daughter, Samantha Van Leer will be published in June in paperback by Hodder and Stoughton. The lovely Georgina reviewed it on the blog last year for me. To read the review, please click here. Thank you Hodder and Stoughton.
Gloss by Marilyn Kaye is published by Macmillan Children’s Books in June. I can’t wait to read this one as it is set in Manhattan during the Swinging Sixties. I don’t think I’ve read any YA set in that time period yet and this sounds awesome. Set at a magazine called Gloss, which is the biggest selling teen magazine in America, we follow the agendas of four very different girls. Described as ‘Mad Men meets The Carrie Diaries, a funny, warm coming of age story perfect for vintage fashionistas and budding journalists. Thank you Macmillan Children’s Books.
Leopard’s Prey by Christine Feehan is published in June by Piatkus. Christine is the internationally best selling author of the Dark Carpathian novels. This book is a stand alone, set in New Orleans; always a favourite setting for me! Thank you Piatkus.
Tidal by Amanda Hocking is book 3 in the Watersong series published by Tor, an imprint from Macmillan. I’ve just started reading the first book in the series, Waves, so I look forward to reading the whole series. Thank you Tor.
Stormbringers by Philippa Gregory is the second book in the bestselling Order of Darkness series and is published by Simon and Schuster in June. I loved Changeling, the first book which came out last year and I look forward to reading this one to find out what happens next. If you like ancient magic, finely detailed history and unusual adventure then this is the series for you. Thank you Simon and Schuster.
Such A Rush by Jennifer Echols is the third book by this author to be published in the UK. This book follows the author’s usual style of irresistible, edgy teen characters with a gritty love story. Ideal for lovers of the New Adult contemporary phenomenon. Thank you Simon and Schuster.
All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry is published by Templar in August. This is a bittersweet love story and an empowering drama of one girl’s journey from victim to hero.The main character, Judith, can’t speak, after losing her tongue in a horrifying event that also saw the death of her best friend. I think this one is going to require tissues! Thank you Templar.
Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman! This book had me squeeing all over the place. Many of you know how much I loved Beth’s debut novel Saving CeeCee Honeycutt. I loved it so much I harassed a publisher into bringing it to the UK. Beth has kindly sent this to me and signed it too. I can’t wait to read it. This book is about a woman who is so passionate about broken furniture she lovingly restores them into beautiful antiques, leading to her opening her own shop in Charleston, where she meets gorgeous characters who help her to find out the truth about her missing brother Josh. Thank you Beth for sending me this book!
Shift by Hugh Howey, I don’t know much about this book. I know it is set in the future and I’ve been informed it is a prequel to Wool. Even though it is a prequel I’ve been advised to read Wool first, so I shall. Thank you Century for the book. I think it is being published in August, but don’t quote me on that.
After reading Katy Moran’s review of The Outsiders, I thought it was time I read it. Described as the original teenage rebel story, I can’t be a YA blogger without reading it for myself.
Thanks to Sammee at I Wanna Read That and Emma at Bookangel Booktopia, I ended up buying some more books for my Kindle. The first two books in a contemporary series by Miranda Keneally
That’s my week of books. Enjoy the long weekend!
