I didn't even do a meme last month so since I am breaking up from college soon, I hope to acquire more books and do more memes on the blog. Anyhow, these are some books I got within the last week.
- Pretties by Scott Westerfeld - I read Uglies (review) last month and loved the idea and story behind it especially as it's taken me years to pick up this series of books. When I went to give Uglies back to the library, I noticed Pretties there, which is the next book in the series. I've heard a mixture of reviews for the sequel but I hope it lives up to its predecessor.
- Strings Attached by Judy Blundell - I read Judy Blundell's other YA novel, What I Saw and How I Lied (review) a few years ago which I liked but not as much as I thought I would. I discovered her newest book when I was doing The Great Gatsby in English Lit and found out it was set in the 1920's. I reserved it but it only came to my local library recently. The plot sounds a lot like Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (review)
- War Horse by Michael Morpurgo - I'd been wanting to re-read this for a while since I saw and loved the movie adaptation in January but failed to get a copy. I was in a charity shop yesterday and happened to wander over to the children's books so see what they had, not expecting much, and found a BRAND NEW copy for £1. Right place at the right time?
Have you read any of these books? What did you think? What books did you get this week?
