Weekly Book Round Up! 8th March

Welcome to another weekly book round up! This is where I recap what's been happening over the past week (or slightly longer than a week in this case!) here on the blog and catch you up on all my reading and book buying adventures. Enjoy!
In the News

World Book Day took place this week, with school children across the country dressing up as their favourite book characters as well as special £1 books being released that they can use their World Book Day tokens to buy. Read more information about World Book Day over on the official site.

What I've Been Reading

I'm currently reading Echo Boy by Matt Haig, which is a YA sci-fi novel. I finished the incredible Trouble by Non Pratt this week which was one of my favourite books of the year so far!

Book Haul

So I'm a bit overdue on this post which means there's even more books to talk about - yay! I've been going a bit crazy - oops. But I got some great bargains so that's okay.

I got Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo for 99p on Kindle this week. I've been meaning to read it for ages so I couldn't resist!

My charity shop bargain of the week was Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson, and I bought The Boy in the Smoke by Maureen Johnson which is one of this year's World Book Day books.

Recently I stopped by The Works where I picked up Deception by C. J. Redwine, Infinite Sky by C. J. Flood and Emma Hearts L.A by Keris Stainton on their 3 for £5 offer.

I also used a WHSmith gift card to buy Trouble by Non Pratt.

From the library I picked up The Name on Your Wrist by Helen Hiorns which I saw featured in this blog post over on Fluttering Butterflies a while ago and Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau - sequel to The Testing which I adored!

And I also downloaded The Recruit by Robert Muchamore from NetGalley as The Cherub series is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year with a cover relaunch, and as I'm yet to read the series I thought this was a great opporunity! Thanks Hachette Children's for the review copy.

What have you been reading this week? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Trouble, Infinite Sky and The Name On Your Wrist are all really good! Hope you enjoy your new books :)

  2. Still jealous of Wintergirls! Love the cover. And so glad you enjoyed Trouble. Might read Echo Boy soon. Fingers crossed you enjoy The Recruit; one of my fave teen series!
