So this month I tried not to buy books because well I already have a load to get through and thought I better get through those first! Compared to most months I did actually do quite well book-buying wise, even if I still bought a few haha! I got a few from a charity shop, a few on the Amazon 3 paperbacks for £10 and a few from Waterstones! I’m also sorry that this post is going to be slightly long!
Waterstones Book Haul
Title: Dear World, How Are You? by Toby Little
I loved the idea of this and I thought it was such a cute book! It was also signed by Toby himself at Waterstones so I couldn’t not! It’s nice to see such young people wanting to investigate the world and as a fellow Sheffielder, it was a must buy!
Synopsis: With the help of his mum, Toby started handwriting and posting letters to everyone from research scientists in Antarctica to game-keepers in Chad and even the Pope. Not only did Toby achieve his goal but the world wrote back.
Dear World, How Are You? is a collection of the most fascinating and heart-warming letters he sent and received. It shows that the world is only as big as your imagination and is full of potential friends, waiting to be discovered, no matter where you live.
Title: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book and it’s been on my need-to-buy list for a while! It wasn’t until I read the opening line that I was completely sold to buy it. Also I think the synopsis for this book is one of the most intriguing things I’ve ever read! Here it is:
Synopsis: I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a road of yellow brick—but even that’s crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I’ve been trained to fight. And I have a mission: Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart. Steal the Scarecrow’s brain. Take the Lion’s courage. And—Dorothy must die.
Title: Book of Lies by Teri Terry
My other half pointed this book out to give it a look and it does sound very interesting! I love finding books that aren’t highly talked about, normally that’s how you find the best books so I’m excited to read it!
Synopsis: Tell a lie and the darkness will find you.
Quinn and Piper are twins, but they’ve never met. A tragic event brings
them together, and draws them into a family curse that stretches across centuries.
One twin can command the darkness; the other could hold the key to breaking the curse.
But when lies become truth and truth looks like lies, who can you believe?
