Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week
Happy Wednesday everyone ! I hope you’re all having a good week so far.
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week…
I’m almost half-way through The Chalk Pit. It’s the 9th book in the Ruth Galloway series and I haven’t read any of the previous ones but that’s not really been a problem so far. I’m still going on The Time Machine at lunch-times too.
Then: The Rest of Us Just Live Here ~ Patrick Ness
For some reason I was slightly worried that the mighty Ness was going to let me down with this – but he bloody well didn’t! Loved! I will have more faith next time. Oww, Todd!
I’d like to get my next ARC Mercy of the Tide out of the way and then I’m going to enjoy something random on my TBR – quite possibly one of these below…
New on the Shelves
My TBR pile is out of control but I felt so happy about my decision to request/accept less ARCs and review books that I felt the need to celebrate…by buying some new books instead. LOL! Very excited about both of these!
I’m Waiting on…
Release ~ Patrick Ness
I just want ALL THE NESS now.
Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17.
It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…
Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.
Expected Publication: May 4th 2017 by Walker Books
