Annike: Hey guys, so Christmas was like 3 days ago now and Zoe and I wanted to share some of the books that we received on Sunday and tell you a bit about why we wanted them and why we are excited to get them! Zoe took some photos of them all and we’ll just do a bit of a conversation post. Please tell us if you have read any of these books or plan to cause we’d love to hear from you!
- Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Zoe: I have been waiting to get this book for ages ever since I read Red Queen and absolutely loved it, I am just hoping it lives up to the expectations and is as good as the first.
2. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling
Annike: So I’ve been telling everyone for the last 6 months or so that I don’t feel like a true Harry Potter fan because I haven’t read the last book, and even though I haven’t heard great things about this book I’m exciting to continue on the journey because I really do love this series.
3. How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karole Kozzo
Annike: This book looks like a really interesting story with quite a deep background story which is always really cool. I guess I am worrying a bit about the characterisation because it sounds like the main character may be one of those stereotypical girls that is just downright rude but i’m again hoping to really enjoy this read.
4. Panic by Lauren Oliver
Zoe: Annike actually got me this for Christmas as I thought it looked amazing and I really loved the blurb and the idea behind the story line. There is quite a mixed range of reviews on this book so I am looking forward to seeing if I enjoy it.
5. Love Lucas by Chantelle Sedgwick
Annike: Love, Lucas is a book that sounds so incredibly sad and devastating but I really want to read it because it’s been a while since I’ve read a really deeply sad book and it has an amazing premise. I also love books that concern and look at the relationship between siblings 🙂
6. The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
Annike: I have been waiting sooo long to read this book!! I think that the premise is absolutely fantastic but I’m super worried because I have read some really bad reviews but I am praying that I enjoy it as it is such an anticipated read.
7. The Good Girls and The Perfectionists by Sara Shepard
Zoe: I have been really wanting these 2 books for ages and was really excited when I got them. I love mystery books and I haven’t read a good one for a while so I hope I really enjoy this one and cant wait to start reading them.
8. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Annike: Lastly, this book is a very popular young adult story around WordPress and all book related sites and it sounds absolutely fantastic! I have read Everything Everything and really enjoyed it so I hope this one lives up to my expectations Plus the cover is absolutely GORGEOUS!
Thanks for reading guys, I hope you recognise some of these books and have some good feedback on them. We’d love to hear from you and have a fantastic final week of 2016!
