*The book discussed in this post was gifted by the publisher*
I’ve been wanting to pick an Orlagh Collins book up for quite some time, and when i heard about All The Invisible Things, her second novel, this one seemed right up my street. It’s the story of Vetty and her journey in to making new friends, keeping old ones and trying to tell the world who she is. Continue reading
*I received a free proof copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from David Fickling Books
I’ve absolutely adored Lisa Williamson for quite some time now. I first read The Art Of Being Normal a few years back, and after having the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times, it’s hard not to love her personality. You can see the passion for these books that she has, and her lovely personality shines through to the stories.
I feel ashamed that i’ve never finished a Victoria Schwab book until City Of Ghosts. I’ve always wanted to pick up one of her books, but the length of most of them intimidated me quite a lot, so when i found out she was releasing a middle-grade ghost book, i jumped at picking it up as soon as it landed in shops.
YALC is getting closer and closer which means my reading is getting a little bit more panicked! I aimed to read quite a bit in June, but as it turned out i’ve had quite a busy life which involved two trips away. Admittedly not much reading got done on either of these, or at least not as much reading as i would have hoped (some book buying got done though, oops). However i have been enjoying reading from my YALC list and i’m back to Book Club reading after missing June’s meeting! Here’s what i read this month.
The Taste of Blue Light was recommended to me by so many people it was hard not to pick it up. When Lydia got announced for YALC i knew that i should probably start this book sooner rather than later, and i’m really glad i didn’t leave it sitting on my TBR pile for long.
I don’t know how long i’ve waited to read another book by Benjamin Alire Saenz, but it’s been an incredibly long time. I feel in love with Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe when i first read it, and it’s still one of my favourite books today. When i heard about The Inexplicable Logic of My Life i knew i had to pick it up as soon as possible.
Title: The Unpredictability Of Being Human
Author: Linni Ingemundsen
Genre: YA, Contemporary, Coming Of Age
Publication Date: 28th Of December 2017
Summary: Malin knows she can’t fix the big stuff in her life. Instead she watches from the sidelines, as her dad yells, her brother lies and her mum falls apart. At least after she meets Hanna she has a friend to help her. Because being Malin is complicated – learning how to kiss, what to wear to prom, and what to do when you upset the prettiest, meanest girl in school.
It’s tough fitting in when you’re different. But what if it’s the world that’s weird, not you?
