As I’m doing the usual book haul post a day late for Tynga’s Stacking The Shelves, I thought that this week I’d link up with The Sunday Post by Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer too. These memes are both about sharing the books added to your shelves this week, and/or events on the blog.
Added to my shelves – for review
Little Brown Books invited me to read this book for review – they made me feel special, so I accepted it! Literary war novels aren’t my favourite thing but when done well they can be truly epic, the sort of book which stays with you for a long time. The publisher are touting this as their debut novel of the year for 2015 – last year it was Everything I Never Told You and I enjoyed that so I’m hoping for good things.
Added to my shelves – freebies
These two both look intriguing – The Sky Is Everywhere is a realistic young adult debut which has received a lot of praise on Goodreads. It looks like quite an emotional ride, exploring a teenager’s grief when her sister dies suddenly. Everblue is about mermaids – something completely different which I’ve never read a novel about before. I’m looking forward to giving it a try.
I’m just over halfway through this and really enjoying it! It feels just as action-packed as the Divergent, and I’m looking forward to watching the new film once I’ve finished the book.
On the blog last week
This was a great little crime thriller, the first I have read from this author. You can read my review here.
Coming up this week
Two supernatural tales of suspense which I was lucky to secure advanced copies of. One I loved and one not so much. Both reviews will be up later this week.
How was your week in books?
