Now Hosted by Book Date
Last week was pretty full on. I’m still injured- I swear this is the never ending injury – but I did manage to read some. I’ve also started working on a project for work which is pretty damn exciting, but also a little terrifying because it’s all up to me! My store is trying to implement a local author signing/interactive event once a month, which is going to take a lot to organise and sort out. I’m still trying to get my head around it honestly and what it needs to be achieved. All in all exciting times ahead there.
It seems that Easter is just around the corner once again (it really doesn’t feel that long ago since it was this time last year!), so this week I’m reviewing a bunch of Easter books too before the big day in the hope that if you are interested in them, that the shops still have some left!
On the weekend I’m off to the #YASquad2016 event in Sydney where Penguin are hosting an event with four of their authors: Will Kostakis (The Sidekicks); Shivaun Plozza (Frankie); Kylie Fornasier (The Things I Didn’t Say) and Megan Jacobson (Yellow). Naturally I’ve put everything else I was reading on hold so that I can read at least three of the four books (The Things I Didn’t Say hasn’t been released yet, and I have an early ARC of Frankie.)
Frankie Vega is angry. Just ask the guy whose nose she broke. Or the cop investigating the burglary she witnessed, or her cheating ex-boyfriend or her aunt who’s tired of giving second chances…When a kid shows up claiming to be Frankie’s half brother, it opens the door to a past she doesn’t want to remember. And when that kid goes missing, the only person willing to help is a boy with stupidly blue eyes … and secrets of his own.Frankie’s search for the truth might change her life, or cost her everything.
Following the intrigue and danger of The Winner’s Curse and the revolution and romance of The Winner’s Crime, Kestrel finds herself in the tundra’s mines and Arin has sailed home. The empire seems unstoppable.
Lies will come undone, and Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them in this third and final installment in the heart-stopping Winner’s trilogy.
Hoping to read this week:
If fourteen-year-old Kirra is having a mid-life crisis now, then it doesn’t bode well for her life expectancy. Her so-called friends bully her, whatever semblance of a mother she had has been drowned at the bottom of a gin bottle ever since her dad left them for another woman, and now a teenage ghost is speaking to her through a broken phone booth. Kirra and the ghost make a pact. She’ll prove who murdered him almost twenty years ago if he does three things for her. He makes her popular, he gets her parents back together, and he doesn’t haunt her. Things aren’t so simple however, and Kirra realises that people can be haunted in more ways than one.
