Mini Haul :D
28 April 2012
Hey all :)
I've just got back from WHSmith so I thought I'd update you on the new books I got.
I was actually hoping to get more than four but in the end they didn't have all the ones I wanted...Maybe next time! ;)
1. The Secret Hen House Theatre. By Helen Peters.
I was surprised when I saw this book on the shelf. I'm not trying to say anything horrible but mostly whenever I go to book shops all I see on the shelves are dark, gloomy books about paranormal activities, death and murder, vampires, ghosts and other weird and wonderful things.
As I said I'm not trying to say anything horrible because I do enjoy reading a fantasy book every once in a while and I do know there are MANY WONDERFUL AUTHORS out there who do not write anything about fantasy at all. What made me laugh was that it was the only boom with a coloured spine and a ''normal'' cover on amidst a sea of black and grey
books. I think that's the thing that stood out to me and made me pick it up, otherwise I don't think I would have noticed it.
I've never heard of it before and I don't know anybody that has read it but it sounds interesting so hopefully, once I've read it, I'll share my thoughts with you and do a review on it for you WONDERFUL readers I have!! :D
2. The Truth About Celia Frost. By Paula Rawsthorne.
I have high expectations for this book as I have heard so much about it and I've read so many amazing reviews on this I'd better not be disappointed! ;)
Has anybody else read this?
What did you think of it?
3. The Valley of Secrets. By Charmain Hussey.
Another book I have not heard of before this is a densely packed book with minute writing in, but as my mum said; " You can read a chapter a day! "
It seems quite different from what I usually read so I hope it will widen my views and opinions on books I have never read before.
I can't see anything wrong with it and what I hope will happen is I will read the book and maybe it will help my writing style to broaden!
Has anybody read this?
4. White Boots. By Noel Streatfeild.
I have practically all of Noel's books and I love them all..So when I saw this one staring back at me I just couldn't resist!
''White Boots'' is probably the only one of her books I haven't read and I can probably safely say I will definitely love this book as I haven't disliked any of her other ones at all.
I am hopefully going to do reviews on all these..I'm really sorry I keep saying I will do reviews and then I end up not doing them. They are on my radar but at the moment they're not priority as I have dreaded exams creeping up on me in two weeks..:(
I don't even know when I will get round to reading the books but hopefully soon I will have read them and I promise you, as soon as my exams are over and I am free to do what I want ( *Looks up to the sky with a dreamy expression on face* ) I will DEFINITELY do them for you!
And If I Don't..Please feel free to remind me!
That's all for now!
My dinner is calling me and my stomach is rumbling in anticipation!
Don't Forget To Smile!! :D xxx
