Borrowed from Library:
- Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler - I heard about this book a while ago when it appeared on Goodreads due to some of the American bloggers I follow. I have also seen some really positive reviews and after seeing the BEAUTIFUL cover, I knew it was a book I wanted to read. However, with the whole I'm a UK blogger but this is published in the US, it became a book I knew I would never read.
UNTIL NOW. I actually saw it first in the UK at work on the shelf when tidying which was a bit of a revelation and surprise. I was going to buy it but when seeing it in the library the other day, it was too good to resist. LOOK AT THAT COVER. AND IT HAS PICTURES.
(Also surprised to find out that Daniel Handler? His pen name is Lemony Snicket - the writer of A Series of Unfortunate Events!)
- After by Morris Gleitzman - You thought the Once series was just a trilogy therefore after Once (review), Then (review) and Now (review), that was it, done. ME TOO.
I was so happy to find out they decided to continue Felix's story further! Here, Gleitzman writes what happened in between Then and Now, set a year after WWII finishes. So looking forward to reading this!
- The Diviners by Libba Bray - I have never read anything by Libba Bray but I know lots of people will be saying 'But you should!' When I got a list of books from Atom with their new releases and read the blurb for this, I knew I wanted to read it. 1920's? New York? But with SERIAL-KILLERS? This sounded interesting to say the least. It was a great thing to arrive back to from holiday.
This will be my first taste of Libba Bray so if it's good I may advance onto A Great and Terrible Beauty. Thank you Atom for sending me a copy of this!
What did you receive this week? Have you read any of these books?
