Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson to Claire. I loved this book, and I don't really read YA, so I hope that she loves it too!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern to Book Flame. As some people will know I am on a bit of a personal crusade to get everyone to read this book, so I pretty much go through the RAK list and just look for people who have it in their top 5! IT IS THE MOST AMAZING BOOK :-)
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander to Looney Books. I have to admit I haven't yet read this or Quidditch Through the Ages but we have both of them and I will get to it, so I hope that this one is enjoyed!
And here's what I received:
From the wonderful Ellie:
Flappers and Philosophers: The Collected Short Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I have some serious Fitzgerald love going on at the moment, and with the sunnier evenings it just seems like the right time to go on a binge and finish the collection. So far I've only read The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night, so I was incredibly happy with this and also with....
The Beautiful and Damned :-)
Just for the record, Ellie is lovely and her blog is wonderful so you should all go and have a read if you haven't already!!
From the lovely Claire:
Paper Towns by John Green. One of the first YA novels I ever read was An Abundance of Katherines and I loved it, as I seem to love many YA authors despite constantly telling people I don't read YA... Anyway, very excited to read this!! Thanks Claire! :-)
It was also my birthday this month, and I got a surprise birthday parcel from the ever - awesome Hanna. She sent me:
We Bought a Zoo by Benjamin Mee. I put this
on my wishlist after reading Hanna's review and
I really want to see the film too so I'm hoping the
book will be great!
She also got me a copy of The Prestige by Christopher Priest, which I can't find a decent picture of but which I'm super excited about because I adore the film and I didn't even know there was a book, again, until I read her review!
This month in particular I have realised how lucky I am to be part of the wonderful book blogging community and how many wonderful people I have to good fortune to know because of it! Thank you all for being lovely!
Needless to say, I will be participating again in July, and if you're interested, my wishlist is here, or here if you want one with pretty pictures!
Wow those two Fitzgerald books look amazing. I hope you enjoy reading them! The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite novels (and the only one I read twice).ReplyDelete
