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. After a few weeks of craziness in the Dacosta household, I can finally write one of these posts again. Starting afresh from the books that have come into the house this week for review. I want to thank all the publishers for being so supportive after a month of hell.
Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess is published by Quercus on July 4th. I think from what I have read it might be New Adult as the protagonist is just out of college and sharing a house with her four friends in Brooklyn. It’s getting excellent reviews so far, so really excited about this one. Thank you Quercus.
Ways To See A Ghost by Emily Diamand is published by Templar on July 1st. This is the second book by the award winning author who won The Time/Chicken House competitition in 2009 with her debut novel, Flood Child. This is a supernatural thriller where ghosts, monsters and UFO hunters collide. Thank you Jessica Dean and Templar.
The Fabulous Phartlehorn Affair by ML Peel was published by Walker Books in February 2012 but will be on a book tour very soon. It sounds like a rather funny and quirky tale that will thrill the 9 to 12 market. Thanks Liz Scott.
Hold Your Breath by Caroline Green was published by Piccadilly in June. Recently Piccadilly Press became part of Templar Publishing. This is described as a riveting psychological thriller from the author who brought us Dark Ride. Tara has a special gift – if something is lost, she can find it. Thank you Piccadilly Press.
Scissor Sisters and Manic Panics by Ellie Phillips is published by Egmont in July. This is the sequel to Dads, Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks which I read last year. Sadie is back by popular demand – after working out who she is and where she comes from, she’s ready for the next stage of her life – organising who she wants to be. Thank you Egmont.
The Fall by Claire Merle was published by Faber and Faber in June and is the sequel to the fantastic dystopian The Glimpse which I loved last year. Set in London in the near future in a society divided into Pures and Crazies, according to the results of a DNA test, Ana discovers the test isn’t real. Thank you Faber and Faber.
The Outline of Love by Morgan McCarthy is publshed by Tinder Press in July. This is the second novel from the debut author. Her first novel, The Other Half of Me. This novel follows the journey of Persephone, an inexperienced Scottish Highland lass set to study for a degree in London. Thank you Tinder Press.
Have a great reading week everyone.
