Bought (mini charity shop haul)

I’ve always been intrigued by Nick Hornby, but never got around to reading any of his books. I enjoyed the film About A Boy, so I’m going to give the book a try. The Girls by Lori Lansens – a story of twin girls joined at the head – looks like something really unique , and obviously I’ll always pick up any Jodi Picoult I can get my hands on.

Bought (Kindle)

This book is recommended for fans of One Day and The Rosie Project, so I’m in.

Borrowed (library)

I loved One Day by David Nicholls, and Us received a lot of hype last year and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. The storyline of an older married couple didn’t hugely appeal to me, so I didn’t get around to buying it but when I saw it in the library I thought I’d give it a try.

I’m quite excited about getting back into the A Song Of Fire And Ice series. I started it years ago, when the first TV series came out, but I’ve had a long break as they are quite intense, hefty books. Now, I want to know what happens next! I’m also keen to try more of John Green after loving The Fault In Our Stars.

For Review

Very excited about these two, thanks to the publishers and NetGalley! I loved Water For Elephants so I’m keen to see what Sara Gruen’s new novel has to offer, and Church Of Marvels is tipped to be one of the debuts of the year, and it’s been compared to Water For Elephants and The Night Circus!  And they’ve both got lovely covers! Yay!

So, quite romance and drama heavy this week, which I didn’t really intend but when these genres are done well they’re great! Any recommendations from the books above? And what did you add to your shelves this week? Let me know in the comments 🙂
