My ‘Weekly Roundup’ is where I share the books I have received in the past week, whether bought, gifted, borrowed etc.
- Long Cloud Ride and The Sun in My Eyes by Josie Dew – Josie Dew is a very under-rated travel writer. She travels all over the world on her bicycle, and she has a very witty writing style that I really enjoy. Sort of a female Bill Bryson. I noticed there were two of her books I hadn’t read, so ordered them off of Amazon. Long Cloud Ride covers her journey around New Zealand, and The Sun in My Eyes is the second part of her journey around Japan; the first being A Ride in the Neon Sun and one of my favourite books.
From the library
- Legend by Marie Lu – I’ve read so many great reviews on this one, and it claims that you’ll enjoy it if you’re a fan of The Hunger Games, which I certainly am. I had no idea it was a Les Miserables retelling until I read the back cover though!
- Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness – I can finally finish the Chaos Walking trilogy! I’m really quite scared at how it will end…
- Matched by Ally Condie – another YA novel I’ve seen with great reviews! I believe the third book in the series has just recently been released.
- The Bellwether Revivals by Benjamin Wood – this is recommended for fans of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, a book which I absolutely loved. It sounds really interesting from the blurb alone.
