Some really exciting books this week! A Text Prize winner, a new Aaron Blabey, superheroes! So much to love! Buy any of these from Booktopia.
- The Star-Touched Queen – Roshani Chokski
This book has been out overseas for a while and seems to have lots of acclaim. I’m borrowing the ARC from a colleague.
- Frayed – Kara Terzis
A super-young Aussie author who made her start on Wattpad. Interested to see what her book is like!
- The Book of Whispers – Kimberley Starr
This won the Text Prize last year, and it is all about demons and is set during the Crusades. I can’t wait to get stuck into it!
- Bad Power – Deborah Biancotti
- Red Spikes – Margo Lanagan
I bought these two books at the launch of Swarm, the sequel to Zeroes. Deb’s book is a collection of short stories about superheroes (GIVE ME ALLLLLL THE SUPERHEROES) and everyone keeps telling me Margo’s short stories are just impeccable so I had to have one of her collections too! (Also, read Swarm – it will tear your heart out, but sooooo gooooddd!)
- Pig the Elf – Aaron Blabey
Aaron’s books are just all so amazing! This Christmas story about a naughty pug called Pig, told in rhyme, is just toooooo funny!
