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!

Kids:

  • 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!

The book-buying ban is going fine… I didn’t spend any money on books this week, but I still managed to accumulate six new books! AGGGGHHHHHHH! I need to be stopped! However, I am super dooper excited about all of these so I can’t complain, except about not having enough time to read…

  • I Am I Am I Am – Maggie O’Farrell

I 100% knew that Maggie O’Farrell’s memoir would be my one of my top books of the year even before I got a chance to read it! It’s all about her many brushes with death – HOW COOL IS THAT? I jumped on it as soon as I could and it is INCREDIBLE! I haven’t done a proper review in a while but definitely will for this!

  • History of Bees – Maja Lunde
  • Wizards of Once – Cressida Cowell

All three of these came from my job in a bookshop! I picked up A History of Bees, because I can’t resist ANYTHING with bees in the title or on the cover! Wizards of Once looks brilliant and I can’t wait to get stuck into some quality kids’ literature.
