Today, I’m going to show you all the books I’ve bought whilst I’ve been away on holiday this month. I am addicted to books and have no self control, so let’s get started as there’s quite a few!
These books are all ones I’ve already read; I read Moonlocket when it came out and enjoyed it so much I wanted my own copy, and I read Moxie a couple of weeks ago and thought it was superb. I mainly bought the Emery Lord books for their stunning covers, and I really enjoyed reading them last week. Keep an eye out for my reviews of Moxie, The Start of Me and You, and the Names They Gave Us in my July Wrap Up on Saturday!
My next three picks were all some exciting middle grade novels. Polly Ho-Yen’s debut the Boy in the Tower is one of the best books I’ve ever read so I can’t wait to get stuck into Fly Me Home, I finally remembered to order the 4th Sophie Cleverly book The Lights Under the Lake, and I also got The Griffin’s Feather by Cornelia Funke since it was Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month and the bookseller recommended it.
My other middle grade choices were The Boy Who Went Magic by A.P Winter, which I read a teaser of and have wanted ever since, and Being Miss Nobody by Tamsin Winter, which I’ve heard phenomenal things about.
The next four books I bought are ones I really want to read before the end of my summer holidays, as they look like brilliant sunshine reads ; Piglettes by Clementine Beauvais (which I mainly chose as my friend Louise from Book Murmuration highly recommends it), One Silver Summer by Rachel Hickman, If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak,and the Girl’s Guide to Summer by Sarah Mlyknowski.
My last two books from Waterstones were both YAs; I’ve wanted to read Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall ever since it came out, and even though I only read Songs About a Girl a few months ago I’ve been eagerly anticipating the sequel Songs About Us ever since.
My last 3 choices were from WH Smith’s 3 for 2 offer, and with the exception of the Moonlight Dreamers which I’ve had my eye on for a while, they were chosen just on the basis of reading their blurbs.
Did you buy any books during July? What do you think of my choices? I’d love to hear from you in the comments or on Twitter @GoldenBooksGirl
