Oh goodness! A lot of my Christmas order arrived this week, and I received some incredibly exciting ARCs (Strange the Dreamer and Hunted!!!!!!!!!). It’s a bit of an eclectic mix – I’m really excited to binge-read the Stormdancer trilogy, and to read The Lie Tree.
- Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor
- Hunted – Meagan Spooner
Wowowowowowowowowow! I am so thrilled to have been sent a copy of Strange the Dreamer – it is a beautiful beautiful ARC, and the story is even better. Every word is like music. Hunted is also incredible, honestly one of the best Beauty and the Beast retellings I have ever, ever read.
- The One We Fell in Love With – Paige Toon
- The Gobbledygook and the Scribbledynoodle – Justine Clarke, Arthur Baysting and Tom Jellett (illustrator)
- The Lie Tree – Frances Hardinge and Chris Riddell (illustrator)
- Metamorphoses – Ovid
These editions are both absolutely stunning. I love anything Chris Riddell illustrates – I trust his choices implicitly. And I have been eyeing off the cloth-bound Metamorphoses for years!
- Stormdancer – Jay Kristoff
- Kinslayer – Jay Kristoff
I’m still waiting on the third book so that I can binge-read this series!!!
- The Hanging Tree – Ben Aaronovitch
- A Closed and Common Orbit – Becky Chambers
- City of the Beasts – Isabel Allende
This was one of my favourite books when I was a child; I plan to reread it and then decide if I should buy the rest of the series, which I never actually read… 😛
- Bone Gap – Laura Ruby
- The Art of Language Invention – David J. Peterson
- Storyteller: The Life of Roald Dahl – Donald Sturrock
- Wolf by Wolf – Ryan Graudin
- Drag Teen – Jeffrey Self
- Empire of Dust – Eleanor Herman
- The Best of Adam Sharp – Graeme Simsion
- The Book That Made Me – Edited by Judith Ridge
I have already read The Book That Made Me, but am thrilled to have a copy I can refer back to! The others have been sitting on my desk at work for ages, and I’m hoping that by bringing them home I will finally get around to reading them!!!
