I thought about buying a couple of new books the other day, and my student overdraft was like Candy don’t you even think about it. Fortunately, my local library, always a reliable supporter in troubling times, had a number of books that I’ve wanted to read for a while.
The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith,
Who we all know is J.K Rowling by now. I fricking LOVE crime and mystery fiction, and, if you think about it, the Harry Potter series had a number of mysteries that J.K Rowling seamlessly wove together, and I can’t wait to delve into this one.
Maine by Courtney Sullivan
I read on prettybooks that this was an ideal summer read, which was why I borrowed it from the library. In case the internet hasn’t told you yet, July was a particularly hit month for the UK, so it would be nice to read something summery.
Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner
This book has got ALL THE PRAISE, and, it being the book I am currently reading, I can definitely see why. It’s absolutely beautiful, but completely chilling as well. A full review will come soon.
Cardturner by Louis Sachar
He wrote Holes. That’s all I needed to know,really.
No, the blurb sounded interesting. It is about a boy who visits his rich uncle, so his family can keep on his good side. However, the visit turns out to be much more revealing and life changing than he first thought.
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
I will DEFINITELY be reviewing this one, as it’s part of my upcoming 65 books to read in your 20s project.
Shirley by Charlotte Bronte
Jane Eyre is hands down my favourite classic, and one of my favourite books of all time, and I haven’t read any other books by Charlotte Bronte.
I’ll be taking part in #read chaos, a month dedicated to reading the Chaos Walking trilogy. Find out more from prettybooks.com and distantheartbeats.tumblr.com. The only book I’ve read by Patrick Ness is A Monster Calls, which I thought was amazing, so I’m excited to read The Knife of Never Letting Go.
