Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (Courtesy of Kristin at YA Book Blogger)
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella (Courtesy of Ellie at Curiosity Killed The Bookworm)
Eliot by Michael A Wood Jr. (Courtesy of Goodreads)
I am unbelievably excited to have won Clockwork Angel as I’ve been dying to get my hands on this ever since it first came out. The Mortal Instruments series is my absolutely favourite YA series and I’m sure that The Infernal Devices series by the same author will be equally good. Kinsella’s books always make me laugh and I’ve Got Your Number sounds like a really funny and heartfelt tale. Eliot isn’t my usual type of book but, nevertheless it looks like an interesting book about drugdealers.
The Weeping Empress by Sadie Forsythe
The Hungry Heart by Brenda Gayle
The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald
Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson
I had to buy both of these books for my English course and I’m so excited to read them. I’ve already read half of The Great Gatsby and it’s absolutely fabulous so far and if you haven’t already seen the trailer for Baz Luhrman’s film adaption of this book then you must! The Great Gatsby is set in the 1920s when ‘the tempo of the city had changed sharply, the buildings were higher, the parties were bigger, the morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper’ (quote from the trailer). I’ve only read a few pages of Housekeeping but I’m already completely drawn into it. It seems like it’s going to a really deep and fascinating novel.
