9 new books this week! I have been coveting Knowledge is Beautiful for ages! It is a really really beautiful book presenting knowledge in interesting ways. I was also lucky enough to attend an event with Jessica Townsend, the author of Nevermoor, and I had my book signed. This is the next big thing in children’s books and I am so excited to have two signed copies!
- The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken
My friends have been telling me to read this book for AGES! And now that I know there is a movie coming out next year, I grabbed the first copy I saw!
- Turtles All the Way Down – John Green
I have no idea what to expect from this book but I am going to try and go in with an open mind. I had a sweet spot in my teenage years where I adored John Green, but when I tried to read some of his other work in my 20s, I was completely disinterested.
- The Undercurrent – Paula Weston
This was the August book for the YA Chronicles box! I got mine quite late! It was full of really cool ‘electrifying’ items, including Pikachu pens, and a cauldron bubble bath! (See the not amazing photo to the side!)
- The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse – Nicholas Gannon
I absolutely ADORED the first book in this series, The Doldrums, and cannot wait to read the sequel! The illustrations are just incredible and I am sure the story will be too!
- Nevermoor – Jessica Townsend x 2
Could not resist two copies of this book, one signed to me personally and another just signed. I might give it to a friend who must read it, or I might hold onto it until Jessica reaches J K Rowling status. 😛
- A Girl’s Best Friend – Lindsey Kelk
I really enjoyed one of Lindsey’s books I read earlier this year; light, fluffy romance which I do like sometimes!
- Becoming Cliterate – Dr. Laurie Mintz
A non-fiction about orgasm equality – it sounds incredibly interesting!
- Knowledge is Beautiful – David McCandless
Just a really really stunning coffee table book with beautiful depictions of data in different forms. I couldn’t resist when I saw one on the discards pile at work!
