It also gives me a chance to be nosy and see what everyone else has got to read, and gives me plenty of new books to pine after!
From the Library:
Whoops, I've overdone it with the reservations again, and as always they all seem to have come in at once! I'm not sure I'm going to have time to read all of these before they have to go back, but I really want to read all of them!
- Dark Angel by Eden Maguire. I've been pining after this book since before it came out, and I love the sound of it. Angels and magic... and rock and roll. I liked Eden Maguire's other series The Beautiful Dead, so I'm hoping to read this book soon.
- Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. I wasn't going to give this book a second glance but I keep seeing such glowing reviews about it from other bloggers- all 5 stars. I'm intrigued now- I have to read it! Review at Irresistible Reads.
- Emerald by Karen Wallace. It was a review on a blog (that I now can't find!) that made me really want to read this book. This is a historical novel set in the time of Queen Elizabeth I, and has political intrigues, mystery and romance. Aimed at younger teens.
- The Missing by Lisa Mcmann. This was published under the title Cryer's Cross in the US and other parts of the world. This is about a small close-knit town and how they react when high-schoolers start disappearing without a trace. Review at Books For Company.
- Prized by Caragh O'Brien. This is book 2 in the Birthmarked series. I finished Birthmarked last week and loved it (review to come). Another dystopian series, but very good and very clever. I will be reading this one very soon. Thanks to Macmillan Publishing and Netgalley for the advance review copy of this book. This is being published in November.
