Books I’m Excited About (2)

So I’ve had a bit of a rummage through the books that I’ve received over the last couple of weeks and the following four are the ones I’m extremely excited about.
The Reindeer Girl by Holly Webb
Published by Stripes Publishing on the 1st September.
There is something utterly adorable about this book cover! I just want to stroke it continuously. I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Holly Webb’s and I can’t wait to read this tale which is set just before Christmas. Little Lotta loves to hear the stories her grandmother tells her from her childhood, where she herded reindeers in the snowy North of Norway. Lotta wakes up one night to discover she is in the world of her grandmother’s story!
Just right for Christmas stockings this year!
Published in October by Macmillan Children’s Books
Never doubt the power of Twitter! My interest in this book was piqued by the following hashtag – #thisbookwillsaveyourlife – where everyone  was asked to name a song that would change your life. I went for Sit Down by James and soon I was smitten and intrigued by this book. Being described as a cult read  for fans of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Eleanor and Park, this is the story of Elise Dembowski, who has always been an outsider. Starting a new school, she hopes and fails to change her popularity status but when she comes across a secret warehouse party, she finally becomes the person she dreams of being – by being a DJ.
Sounds so good!
She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
Published by Indigo in October
Love, faith, obsession, coincidence, where will it lead?
The name Marcus Sedgwick is synonymous with a  cracking good read. As his book flits between London and Manhattan, the story explores obsession, trust and coincidence  in this thriller as Laureth Peak searches for her missing father. This is completely different from anything Marcus has written before and I can’t wait to read it.
Confessions of a Wild Child by Jackie Collins
Published by Simon and Schuster in September 2013
I am super excited by this book! I grew up reading Jackie Collins novels and my favourite books were always the ones that involved Lucky Santangelo. So I was over the moon to discover that Jackie Collins had written a prequel about Lucky when she was fifteen years old. So in reality, Jackie Collins has ventured into the world of YA! I can’t wait to find out what Lucky got up to when she was younger.
So those are the books I can’t wait to read. They are presently sitting top of my list. What books are you hoping to read next?


  1. The new Marcus Sedgwick one sounds very interesting!


  2. I cannot WAIT to get stuck into This Song Will Save Your Life. It sounds perfect.

  3. I am itching to start This Song Will Save Your Life and I am adding The Reindeer Girl onto my wishlist as I type.

  4. I know! It looks and sounds just brilliant.
