Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Hope you guys are having a good week!
Now: The Winter Place ~ Alexander Yates
I’m enjoying this a lot! Bears, Finland, a cabin in the woods…perfect!!!
Then: Behind Closed Doors ~ Elizabeth Haynes
Another winning book for me by Haynes! My Review will be up on Saturday.
If Winter arrives, then that! If not The Light that gets Lost by Natasha Carthew which published today (I’m a bit behind on ARCs, sorry!)
New on the Shelves
I’ve been approved for the following title via Netgalley:
The Christmas we Met ~ Kate Lord Brown
I’m mega happy I got approved for this…I can’t wait to get started on some festive reads!
A gorgeous winter tale about the secrets revealed by a collection of family jewels.
A talented young jewellery designer fights to rebuild her life and family by solving the mystery surrounding a diamond brooch given to her by her grandmother.
When Grace Manners takes up residence on the Wittering Manor estate in Sussex, she little realizes working alongside eccentric Fraser Stratton will change her life.
Since her husband disappeared, along with most of their money, Grace has struggled to make ends meet and the little cottage on the estate is both a refuge and a workshop for her jewellery business. It’s only when Grace begins to uncover the story behind a beautiful diamond brooch she inherited that she becomes drawn into a family secret that threatens to destroy what little she has left…
Purchased: I broke my book-buying ban and ordered these MUST HAVES!
I also bought a copy of How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff from a charity shop. I’ve read it before, but I borrowed it from my friend Di and I wanted my own copy.
I’m Waiting On…
(Linking up with Breaking the Spine)
Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) ~ Victoria Aveyard
I got really excited about this, this week! Come onnnnnnnn February!
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
Expected Publication: February 9th 2016 by HarperTeen
