Just a few this time since the library was closing and I was a bit rushed.
Reviews of all to come, when I’ve read them!
1. The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusack.
Finally! I’ve been looking forward to reading this one for so long. I know that it’s going to be amazing. I did want to purchase it myself (and probably still will) but I didn’t want to wait for it to arrive so I went ahead and picked it up to read immediately. I’ve been putting it off for far too long!
2. Dreaming of Amelia, by Jaclyn Moriarty.
When I was a younger reader I really enjoyed Jacyln Moriarty’s books. Feeling Sorry for Celia, Finding Cassie Crazy and The Betrayal of Bindy Mackenzie were all companion books for each other. Dreaming of Amelia is another in the “series”. I’d never actually heard of it, and I think it’s probably because it came out after I’d become less obsessed with Young Adult books and it just slipped my radar until now.
3. Finnikin of the Rock, by Melina Marchetta.
Another Young Adult book. Melina Marchetta is the author of some of my favourite books of my younger years: Looking for Alibrandi, Saving Francesca (my absolute favourite by her) and On the Jellicoe Road. So, since I was already in the YA section, I just happened upon two more of her books, I thought I may as well read them, so I picked up one to start with.
From the back cover it appears to be in the fantasy genre (based on the characters’ names), unlike her previous books. So I’m a bit dubious of how it’s going to turn out, but it’s Young Adult so it should be a fairly quick read.
What have you picked up to read lately?
