With June making an appearance next Saturday, I reckon it’s the perfect time to chat about what I’m planning on reading next month. There were so many choices at my local library and I’m actually really pleased with my little selection of YA books!
I’ve never come across a book quite like this! I’ve read spy books like Alex Rider, books set during the Holocaust and books set in boarding schools, but not all in one book. It’s such an interesting plot and reminds me a little of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy! Thrillers aren’t my usual genre but I genuinely excited to read this!
This stunningly beautiful book was actually gifted to me so big thanks to Francesca and Walker Books! I adore stories where you have mystery fused with adventure! You get to follow sisters Tansy and Belle who are stars of a circus finale! After an accident and one sister vanishing, you get to join in the search for the missing sister and the journey along the way! I’ve actually started reading this already (and adoring!!) but this comes out on June 6th so hinthint! Haha!
Ever since I read the collab ‘What If It’s Us‘ with Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli, I’ve fallen for Adam’s writing! I’ve always had a bit of a morbid sense of humour (blame my mum!) and, when I read the plot of the two main characters being told they only have a day to live, my interest was piqued! The characters Mateo and Rufus are total strangers but they manage to hook up through an app designed for the last day and try to cram a lifetime into a day! I’m ready for my heart to be shattered! *sob*
What with Marvel taking over the cinema, DC has been slowly been planning their domination! They’ve had some amazing films out recently such as Suicide Squad, Aquaman and Birds of Prey (coming next year). Not only have they had the big screen but they’ve also been teaming up with incredible authors writing stories of well-known heroes: Wonderwoman: Warbringer, Catwoman: Soulstealer and Batman: Nightwalker! I’ve watched so many things about Superman but I think this book shows his early days in a completely different light! My inner DC nerd needs to do some reading of baby Boy Of Steel!
I’m missing the Doctor, Yas, Ryan and Graham! I’ve been chomping at the bit ever since the New Year special and, with the new pictures popping up on the Doctor Who Twitter, I needed to find something to do! I’ve not actually picked up any of the Doctor Who books until now since I’m more of a visual person but I saw Jodie and this book somehow ended up in my flat! If you want to hear one of the cast reading this, Mandip Gill (Yasmin) is narrating the audiobook!
You can’t do any reading without a Jacqueline Wilson book in your list! I’ve got a weird reason for wanting to read this book (other than being a big fan of Jacqueline!). I used to do extra work a few years ago and did some in a BBC TV show called The Village! It was being filmed around Matlock and around Derbyshire so of course I wanted to get involved! Cue driving through the Peak District at 4am and getting dirtied up for life as a factory worker! You did get treated like cattle but I was happy! This wasn’t acting work so wouldn’t end up on my CV but it was giving me a chance to learn how filming works and set etiquette! Long story short, it was set in the 1920s and we actually had to learn some steps of the Charleston for a scene! It was so much fun and this book looks just as fun!
