I thought I would share a variety of books that I have read and really enjoyed.

The Highland Falcon Thief

M. G. Leonard, Sam Sedgman, et al.

£7.99 £7.43

A really great 'who done it?' kinda read, which kept me so, so entertained the whole time! I felt like the character in the book, where I didn't have much of an interest in trains but this book made me love it!

Convenience Store Woman

SAYAKA MURATA

£8.99 £8.36

A really great story about feeling content with where you are at in life, the feelings of being pressured and expectations too.

A Pinch of Magic

Michelle Harrison

£7.99 £7.43

I absolutely adored this book! If you want magic, adventures and family then this is for you. I was so drawn into the magical world in this book and cannot wait to read the sequels too!

A Sprinkle of Sorcery

Michelle Harrison

£7.99 £7.43

This is the sequel to 'A Pinch Of Magic' which I was obsessed with. It is one of those books that you keep thinking about, after you have read it. I wasn't as fussed on this one as it was heavily pirate themed, but I knew it was still a really great book full of adventure. I feel like so many people would adore this!

Towers Falling

Jewell Parker Rhodes

£6.99 £6.50

I feel like this is such an important read, especially to primary schools too. In this book, it is all about a teacher explaining what happened to the Twin Towers to the children in their class. They approach the subject in such a great way and would highly recommend this!

Lock Every Door

Riley Sager

£7.99 £7.43

I think that this was my favourite book to read of 2020. This book is all about a woman that is asked to flat-sit an apartment in a very famous apartment block in New York. Weird things start to happen and something isn't quite right. And I'm not going to say anything else because of spoilers, but if you enjoy thrillers then you might love this!

Clap When You Land

Elizabeth Acevedo

£7.99 £7.43

Such a great book! It is about a girl who's dad has just died in a plane crash, but also flips to another perspective where another girl has the same experience with her father too. A really great read, the book is written in verse so fast to read too!

Two Can Keep a Secret

Karen M. McManus

£7.99 £7.43

Wow. This book had so many twists, turns and surprises! I really, really enjoyed this. I would say that this is one of my favourite rads of 2020 too! A high school. A history of murders. That is all you need to know!

The Flatshare

Beth O'Leary

£8.99 £8.36

A really fun, lighthearted read especially when you want something that you don't need to concentrate on too much! A lot of fun, full of romance and great for a cosy night in!

The Haunting of Hill House

Shirley Jackson

£9.99 £9.29

A really great old school spooky tale, considering it was written in the 1910s. Don't expect a huge thriller piece, but it was a really interesting read!

Capture or Kill

Tom Marcus

£12.99 £12.08

Okay, if you are interested in MI5, then this book is for you. Tom Marcus was an ex intelligence officer at MI5 who shares stories about his experiences. A really great insight and he has several books too!

Three Hours: The Top Ten Sunday Times Bestseller

Rosamund Lupton

£8.99 £8.36

Wow, what a book! This book is all about a school shooting, what the characters are going through throughout the book and the reasons behind the shooting. It was a really great read, eye opening to what could be and also spreads some awareness on situations like this.

Loveless

Alice Oseman

£7.99 £7.43

Another great read for 2020! There was so much hype when this book came out and it totally deserved it. This is a story about a girl who doesn't understand why she has zero interest in relationships or love. The story goes along with her exploration and understanding of herself as she starts college and is a really great read! Highly recommend!

Invisible Differences: A Story of Aspergers, Adulting, and Living a Life in Full Color

Julie Dachez

£17.98 £16.72

Such a great, eye opening book that could raise so much awareness to other people. It is a really great read, looking into somebody else's life and seeing how they could struggle with situations that others wouldn't even think of. Great read!

The Invisible Guest in Moominvalley

Tove Jansson, Cecilia Davidsson, et al.

£12.99 £12.08

For all of the Moomin lovers out there, or even new fans too! A really great wholesome story from the Moomins, doesn't disappoint but when do they? Highly recommend for all ages!

Heartstopper Volume One

Alice Oseman

£10.99 £10.22

A really great graphic novel, thoroughly enjoyed! This is part of a series which is highly, highly loved in the book community. I feel like you can read the description, as I'm worried I might throw some spoilers out there!

Noughts & Crosses

Malorie Blackman

£7.99 £7.43

A really good, eye opening book again. This book is all about two races, noughts and crosses. It is basically a role reversal of the real world. Noughts and Crosses shouldn't intertwine with each other. They shouldn't be friends, lovers, companions.. and this book will take you on the struggles of this!

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (A Hunger Games Novel)

Suzanne Collins

£18.98 £17.65

Well.. I am sure everybody has been waiting for this book to come out! This is a prequel to The Hunger Games series. Coriolanus Snow before he has come to power, you go through his journey of being involved with the hunger games. Really enjoyed this!

Pumpkinheads

Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks

£10.99 £10.22

Okay, even thinking about the cover of this graphic novel.. it gives me such cosy warmth! A really great graphic novel about all things autumnal, cosy and you won't be able to put it down! A great easy read.

The Memory Police

Yoko Ogawa

£8.99 £8.36

Again, one of the best books I have read in 2020. This book gives off dystopian vibes and I am all here for it. The main character lives in a place where 'the memory police' can make things disappear from everybodys memories. One day, you could be a shoemaker and the next day, shoes have gone from existence and you don't realise. But it's very rare, but some people do still remember which is very dangerous.. I cried and cried at the end of this book and wish I could experience it with fresh eyes all over again.

Logging Off

Nick Spalding

£14.95 £13.90

I really enjoyed this book. It is all about a character that has to go on a digital detox because it is affecting his life so badly. The book takes you on several funny stories and experiences that the character has and it is a really great book. It also makes you think about how much digital consumption happens in your life too.

Soldier Spy

Tom Marcus

£8.99 £8.36

Here is another Tom Marcus book, like I have mentioned above. He is an ex intelligence officer for MI5 and takes you through some of his experiences on the job.

Harrow Lake

Kat Ellis

£7.99 £7.43

Such a great YA thriller which had me so captivated the whole way through! One extra creepy character and I'd say this is a must read for a range of ages.

The Memory Wood

Sam Lloyd

£12.99 £12.08

One of the best thrillers i have read this year. It is all about a boy who walks through the woods to find a girl held hostage inside a rustic worn down cottage. He wants to help her, but she could also be his friend. So what should he do?

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow Book 1

Jessica Townsend

£6.99 £6.50

Obsessed with this series! It has some Harry Potter and The Hunger Games vibes in there, but in such a wonderful and magical world!

Kidnap on the California Comet

Sam Sedgman, M. G. Leonard, et al.

£6.99 £6.50

Thoroughly enjoyed this one! Think Agatha Christie but done for kids and a lot of fun!

Frostheart

Jamie Littler

£7.99 £7.43

SUCH a great book! Frostheart takes you on a great adventure, full of events and strong messages. Highly recommend!
