First Class Post - because this post is first class!
The Toymaker by Jeremy de Quidt - Goodreads / Amazon
The Feathered Man by Jeremy de Quidt - Goodreads / Amazon
It's October, which means Halloween is soon. So when I was offered the chance to review these creepy YA novels by de Quidt, I said yes! Both of these books sound amazing! And the cover for The Feathered Man is gorgeous! And the cover for The Toymaker is especially creepy!
Hold On by Alan Gibbons - Goodreads / Amazon
Suicide novels... it's the questions that get me. The journey those left behind have to go through to find the answers and get closure... there so sad and incredibly moving. Suicide is a terrible, terrible thing, and I can't imagine what it would feel like to be the one left behind. The word "suicide" in the synopsis, I immediately think "why?" and have to know.
The Dark Heroine by Abigail Gibbs - Goodreads / Amazon
Seeking Crystal by Joss Stirling - Goodreads / Amazon
I already have proof copies of both of these books, but the publishers were kind enough to send me finished copies!
Out by Joanna Kenrick - Goodreads / Amazon
This is a book published by Barrington Stoke, who publish books for reluctant, struggling or dyslexic readers. So at 56 pages and very large font, this will be a very quick read. Will be reading for LGBTQ YA Month. Glad the subject is covered by struggling readers too.
House at the End of the Street by Lili Blake - Goodreads / Amazon
The Crash by Krystyna Kuhn - Goodreads / Amazon
Another two creepy novels to try and read for October! House at the End of the Street is a movie-to-book adaptation, the movie starring The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence. And only after receiving The Crash have I realised it's a standalone sequel to The Game. Really hoping the "standalone" bit applies, because I've not read the first book!
Silent Snow, Secret Snow by Adèle Geras - Goodreads / Amazon
I bought this book after seeing Adèle mention it in the comments of Catnip's Non Pratt's Gay Writes post. It's out of print, so I have bought myself a secondhand copy. Was bought with the intention to read for LGBTQ YA Month, but it's also Christmassy, and I was thinking of trying to read some Christmassy books for December. Hmm. We shall see!
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling - Goodreads / Amazon
*Dances* I have Rowling's latest novel, oh yeah! I'm looking forward to reading this to see what it's like, though I have no idea if I'll enjoy it or not. I'm really hoping so!
Magyk by Annie Sage - Goodreads / Amazon
I sent Andy from The Pewter Wolf my copy of Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan to borrow, and as a thank you, when he sent it back, he also sent me Magyk for me to borrow! It was a nice surprise! It sounds like a really awesome story, I'm looking forward to trying it!
Thank you to RHCP, Indigo, HarperCollins, OUP, Barrington Stoke and Atom for the review copies.
