A good week in books for me! I got-
- Torn by Amanda Hocking. (Goodreads). This is book 2 in the Trylle Trilogy. I won a signed copy of book 1 Switched a few weeks ago, so now I have to keep on ordering copies of these books with the gorgeous American covers so that they match! They are so pretty. Can't wait to actually read one either- not just staring at them!
From the library:
- Another Torn, this time by author Cat Clarke. (Goodreads). This sounds like a thrilling contemporary book about a tragedy on a school trip. "A compelling story of guilty secrets, troubled friendship and burgeoning love". It's getting great reviews so far and will count towards the Britsh Books Challenge.
- Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton. (Goodreads). This is one that I've been on a waiting list for for a while, so I'm thrilled I've finally got it. It sounds like a fantastic witchy story, and it's set in Cornwall, England as well, which I love. I'm very encouraged by the fact that it's written by a former book publisher too. This is another one for the British Books Challenge.
- Legend by Marie Lu. (Goodreads). This is another dystopian novel. There has been a lot of hype about this book, but I really like the sound of it, and haven't overdosed on dystopian books yet!
- Allegiance by Cayla Kluver. (Goodreads). This is book 2 in the Legacy series, a fantasy series. I read a review by Lisa at Read Me, Bookmark Me, Love Me and it made me desperate to read this series. When I saw it on Netgalley I couldn't resist requesting it- I've just got to try and get hold of a copy of book 1 now!
Those were my books- hope you had a good week for books too.
On Wednesday, the monthly award for our Best of the Bunch book goes up on the blog. Let us know which book was your February favourite.
