For Review: 

The Door that Led to Where – Sally Gardner 

The latest book from the incredible Sally Gardner has one of the coolest covers I have ever seen and I can’t wait to read it. I honestly would read anything this author wrote but thank you to Hot Key for sending this book out!

Vendetta – Catherine Doyle 

This is a Chicken House book and to be honest all their books generally are awesome. Its a love story which puts me off slightly but something about the blurb really struck me so I decided I would give it a go, thanks for sending Chicken House!

The Sin-Eaters Daughter – Melinda Salisbury 

This intrigued me because of the idea of a goddess hidden in the body of a girl and the situation of the girl. I want to know more about her just from the blurb and how she came to be where she is. It sounds like it will be quite a sad story at least at the beginning but hopefully good will come of it! Thanks Scholastic and Lovereading4kids.co.uk for sending this through

Sleepless – Lou Morgan

This is a Stripse book from their new YA horror collection and sounds fantastic! I love YA horror and can’t wait to read both this and the other book I have got from this collection, Frozen Charlotte. Its awesome that a publisher is pushing YA Horror in a way that hasn’t really been tempted since the days of Point Horror I don’t think.

Gifted: 

This week I visited my favourite indie bookstore for their late night Christmas Shopping event. While there I just bought christmas presents so I can’t really show them off but I also got a few proofs from Katie who owns the store with her mum. I want to say a massive thank you for always making me feel welcomed at the store to both of them and thank you for passing these proofs on to me!

Afterworlds – Scott Westerfield 

I love Scott Westerfield but his books always take me forever to read and I doubt Afterworlds is going to be any different! As far as I can tell form the blurb its a book within a book, and that whole concept sounds incredible to me!

Solitaire – Alice Osman 

This is a book that I have heard loads of people talking about and I am not sure about, but I am more than willing to give a go. Solitaire’s blurb doesn’t give much away and I’m told that the protagonist is quite angsty but I am looking forward to giving it a read and seeing what I think of it for myself.

Cakes in Space – Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre (not pictured) 

This isn’t in the picture because I am currently reading it. I couldn’t not start reading it straight away! From the creators of Oliver and the Seawigs this book is about cakes that take over a spaceship. I’m about a third of the way through and already its just as brilliant as Oliver and the Seawigs was, I wish I had Reeve and McIntyre’s imagination!

    I’ve heard good things about Afterworlds, though the size puts me off! And the new Sally Gardner is bound to be amazing 🙂
