As well as a few books I got throughout the week, I came home on Friday to find a pile of packages. I’ve written up the ones I’m most excited for and just listed the rest.
172 Hours on the Moon – Johan Harsted
There’s a reason we never went back to the moon.
It was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Mia, Antione and Midori had different reasons to enter NASA’s competition for a seat on the first shuttle to go to the moon in over forty years.
But while they all wanted to escape earth, they never realised there might not be a chance to come home...
I’ve read the prologue and I know I’m going to love this. Thanks, Atom!
Dead Rules – RS Russel
Heathers meets Romeo and Juliet in this wickedly funny read that will keep you guessing to the end.
Sometimes falling in love means you have to kill somebody
Jana Webster and Michael Haynes are in love: The school’s perfect couple, they’re destined to be together forever.
But Jana’s destiny is fatally flawed. And now she’s in Dead School, where Mars dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom with his beguiling blue eyes, mysterious smile and irrestistibly warm touch.
Jana is sure Michael wll rush to her side soon. And she is willing to do anything, anything, to make sure he does...
Never heard of it before, but it looks awesome. Thanks, Quercus!
A deadly contagion races throught England...
Isabel and her family have nowhere to run from a disease that has killed half of Europe. When the world she knows and loves ends forever, her only weapon is courage.
The Black Death of 1349 was the deadliest plague in human history. All Fall Down is a powerful and inspiring story about survival in the face of real-life horror.
I loved Sally’s first two novels and I've had my eye on this for a while – so pleased to find it waiting for me at home! Thanks, Scholastic!
