This Week in Books #TWIB


Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week. 

Happy Wednesday guys. You’ll be pleased to know my reading finally picked up speed this week. Hurrah!


Now: The Colour of Milk ~ Nell Leyshon // Can You Keep a Secret ~ R.L Stine

I started reading The Colour of Milk at work one lunch and I was hooked so I took it home. I’m almost finished. I also started the new Fear Street novel which is out next week – so I need to read it quickly!

Then: The Crow Girl ~ Erik Axl Sund // PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook

OMG The Crow Girl took me forever to read but not because it was bad, just because I was so busy and it’s three books in one! Really glad I finished it though! The Vegan Cookbook didn’t do it for me at all…but I’m not even Vegan. I’ll explain why I wanted to read it in my review.

Next: ??? 

Either Murder at the 42nd Street Library or something from my TBR pile.

Borrowed: The Colour of Milk

‘this is my book and i am writing it by my own hand’

The year is eighteen hundred and thirty one when fifteen-year-old Mary begins the difficult task of telling her story. A scrap of a thing with a sharp tongue and hair the colour of milk, Mary leads a harsh life working on her father’s farm alongside her three sisters. In the summer she is sent to work for the local vicar’s invalid wife, where the reasons why she must record the truth of what happens to her – and the need to record it so urgently – are gradually revealed.

I didn’t buy any books or request any from Netgalley as I’m in catch-up mode.

It looks like June is going to be a month for YA!

You Know Me Well

youknowmeWho knows you well? Your best friend? Your boyfriend or girlfriend? A stranger you meet on a crazy night? No one, really?

Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed.

That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

When Kate and Mark meet up, little do they know how important they will become to each other — and how, in a very short time, they will know each other better than any of the people who are supposed to know them more.

Expected Publication: June 7th 2016 by St. Martin’s Griffin
