Most of Australia has a holiday today, but unfortunately I don’t! Just another work day…but at least I have books to help me forget that when I get home! I received four books in the mail over the last week and they all sound brilliant:
How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne (released tomorrow) arrived thanks to Hachette as one of their winter ‘uplit’ reads. Tori is winning – everything in her life is perfect – but it’s actually a lie. Tori doesn’t have what everyone else does but it that what she wants? Can she tread her own path alone?
Beneath the Mother Tree by D.M. Cameron (released August) is both a mystery and a love story set on a small island. When Riley and his mother move there, they are automatically blamed for strange happenings on the beach and amongst the inhabitants. Can resident Ayla solve the problem? Thanks to Midnight Sun for the copy of this book.
Sisters and Brothers by Fiona Palmer (for release in September) was a surprise from Hachette. Five people – Emma, Michelle, Bill, Sarah and Adam have problems relating to family. How are they connected and what are the secrets lying between them? I’m looking forward to see how these people are interlinked!
Providence by Caroline Kepnes (released 9th August) arrived from Simon & Schuster. I’m really intrigued about this, as Caroline Kepnes writes a wonderfully twisted story. Jon disappears for four years but has no recollection of that time. But strange things start happening around him. Can best friend Chloe help him figure it out? Or is this only the beginning of his story?
