Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next. 

Hope you’re all having a great week!  Here’s what mine has looked like:

Now: King’s Cage ~ Victoria Aveyard // The Time Machine ~ H.G Wells

I’ve not made much of a start on King’s Cage yet but so far so good.  I’m also stiiiiiiiiiiill going on The Time Machine at lunch-times.

Then:  The Invisible Hand ~ James Hartley // Girl in Disguise ~ Greer Macallister

I really enjoyed both of these. I’ve just finished The Invisible Hand which is part of a new series with each book based on a different Shakespeare play. I think it’s a great way to get kids and young adults interested in Shakespeare. My review will be up soon. Girl in Disguise was a fun book about the first female Pinkerton detective. My review went up yesterday.

Next: ??? 

Definitely something from my physical TBR shelf again. Six of Crows and The Chemist are still at the top of my pile or I might go for something completely different like Misery by Stephen King.

New on the Shelves

I haven’t bought or requested any books this week. Pat on the back for me! 😮

I’m Waiting On…

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

Because, the cover is so stunning, and it sounds great too. A bit similar to The Space Between Us perhaps, but I only saw the movie!? There’s quite a wait til September though…boo!

 Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met, never even spoken to – someone who is light years away?

Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on a mission to establish a second home for humanity amongst the stars. Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth – with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.

Their only communication with each other is via email – and due to the distance between them, their messages take months to transmit across space. And yet Romy finds herself falling in love.

But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean?

Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone . .

Expected Publication: September 7th 2017 by Walker Books
