The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - I'm pretty late to the party on this one, considering the third and final installment is already out and I'm yet to even read the first one. I don't know why I haven't picked this book up sooner it sounds exactly like the kind of book I would love and really enjoy so I don't really have any reason I just never got round to it, but now... I own it.
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang - I have heard a few people mention this and have seen a couple of reviews floating in the book blogging community that seem to be incredibly positive towards this book. In waterstones they sometimes have notes wrapped around the book from other readers about what they thought of the book and someone said that if you love thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher then you will love this book, and thirteen reasons why is one of my all time favourite books, so how could I leave it behind?
Out of the Ordinary by Jon Ronson - I bet you all think I have some kind of weird obsession with Jon Ronson by now, but I just really like the topics that he writes about and I watched his lecture related to his book The Psychopath Test and it just made me get more and more of his books, especially as they keep popping up in this book clearance shop in Liverpool where three paperbacks are £5!
We are all Completely beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler - This book seems to be popping up quite a lot, I saw it in waterstones first and thought it looked interesting (mainly because the cover reminded me of The shock of the fall... sad I know) but after hearing a few good things about it, I picked up the book and read the blurb and I was hooked, I wanted it.
Oaxaca Journal by Oliver Sacks - Yet another person you readers might start to worry I'm obsessing over, but honestly it's just because he writes about really interesting things! I'm going to have to marathon a load of these books soon. This one is a bit different to his other works, his other works are all about neurology (the brain) and things that go wrong and questioning social norms. This one is about Oliver Sacks journey to Oaxaca, where he goes with a load of fern enthusiasts, I thought I'd try it.
Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer - I couldn't be more excited when I found out I had won this book in a giveaway. I had raved about wanting this, saw a giveaway, entered it on a whim and won... I was so happy. This story brings in the bell jar by Sylvia Plath which I really enjoyed and wanted to see how this adapted the story into it, really can't wait to get stuck into this one.
So that's it! Just six books, which is really good for me! What about you, have you bought any new books recently? Or have you read any of these?
