My Favorite New Releases So Far This Year 2016

Have I ever told you how much I love authors & publishers? A gigantic thank you to the authors & publishers who ensure bloggers have access to their books before or as they are published. Yes, they receive a public review in return, but this doesn’t always work in their favour. Book bloggers tell the truth. I promise. If we don’t no one would trust our reviews (and Cait’s dragons would devour us)

These are the new releases I think you should check out. Surprisingly there are a lot of historical fiction – a little out of my comfort zone…

I hope you discover a new book here to add to your reading list. Please let me know of any 2016 releases you recommend.

 

All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda
Adult ThrillerNew releases

I haven’t written a review for this book simply because I am still suffering from book hangover, This book is the best I have read so far this year and the talented Megan Miranda has proved that she can master the transition from YA to adult fiction.
Read this book! This is my ONLY 5-star book so far this year!

Recoil by Joanne MacgregorNew releases

Written by one of my favourite South African authors, Recoil is a new genre from her and I think it’s her best work ever. My review starts off with Recoil is an unpredictable, fast-paced, exhilarating ride… read more here

The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue HitchcockNew releases

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan MatsonNew releases
YA Contemporary

I just finished this book a couple of days ago. It’s just what you’d expect from Morgan Matson – fun & relatable – the perfect beach read. A book you’ll fly through while wishing it would never end.

Nora & Kettle by Lauren Nicolle TaylorNew releases
YA Historical Fiction

Loosely based on Peter Pan, this book is a heartbreaking story of love, friendship, strength and survival. Bringing to light the racial prejudice Japanese Americans were subjected to after Pearl Harbour and encouraging tolerance. This book should be in all school libraries.

The Summer Before the War by Helen SimonsonNew releases
Adult Historical Fiction

Reading this heartening, character driven story felt like I was gliding gently, almost dreamily through the pages before jerking to a halt with the intrusion of the cruelty and brutality of the First World War.

And I Darken by Kiersten WhiteNew releases
YA Historical Fiction

I initially chose And I Darken for its stunning cover and soon found out that it is much more. A deeply-layered, well-researched story set in the 15th century Ottman Empire and filled to the brim with treason, betrayal, murder, love, intrigue, jealousy and deceit. This book is good enough to eat!

The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter HapgoodNew releases
YA Contemporary

The Square Root of Summer is a weirdly absurd story and I think that’s why I liked it so much. Grief affects us all differently and this book got right in under my skin and took hold, even though the math was a beyond me!

Alice and the Fly by James RiceNew releases
YA Contemporary

This début is a mixture of Eleanor and Park and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Like The Curious Incident, the narrator is unreliable the real story is revealed slowly with unexpected twists. I felt like I was slightly detached from the story (but curiously in a good way), like watching a movie without sound.

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall KellyNew releases
Adult Historical Fiction

I received a physical copy of this book from the author late last year in response to a post describing upcoming new releases. My review describes her soft, subtle, understated way of storytelling which spins a comforting and nostalgic cloak around the reader. But don’t be fooled into thinking this book doesn’t pack a punch, the tranquility only emphasises the enormity the impact of war has on humanity. Read more here.

I’m going to read this just because I love the cover, but it sounds pretty good too.

To be published: 13 September 2016

I have heard a lot of buzz about this book with the fantastic title and I can’t wait to read it.

She hadn’t told anyone. Not a single soul. Not one word about that night and what had been done to her had ever passed Maddy Malone’s lips. She’d thought about it at first – had been desperate, even frantic, to tell. But then had come the shame, and the intimidation from the boys who raped her – and the one who held her down.

This sounds like a really good thriller. Possibly along the lines of The Secret History by Donna Tartt…

I’m on the fence with this one, I think it’s going to be either very good to terrible. We’ll have to see…

He’s taken a huge risk—and two-thousand dollars from his meth-head stepfather—for a chance to “evolve,” as Beau, the retreat leader, says. Beau is complicated. A father figure? A cult leader? A con man? 

And then, in an instant Arman can’t believe or totally recall, Beau is gone. Suicide? Or murder? Arman was the only witness and now the compound is getting tense. And maybe dangerous.

What I Love About Audible

What I love about Audible

What I Love About Audible

I’ve only recently started using Audible, Amazon’s audiobook subscription site. Not because I don’t like audio books, our family spent many happy hours in the car listening to Roald Dahl, Francesca Simon and Audrey Wood‘s books. But up until a few months ago I was working full-time which left little time for hobbies. Now that I have many more hours to spend painting, art journaling and other craft activities I discovered that I am easily bored and music alone was just not filling the gap.

So in came Audible which offers 2 free books during the free trial. Bonus! What to choose… My TBR (to be read) list is dangerously long. Daunting. Intimidating. It is really impossible difficult to choose what to read next. Then I remembered there were a few books on my list that had been there a while, mostly because of their sheer size. And then I had it – A Game of Thrones. And just like that, I rediscovered a passion for audiobooks…

Here is a list of what I love about Audible. (Lists are addictive!)Snow & Roses

  1. One month free trial and includes 2 credits (= 2 books)
  2. I can listen on my android device and sync to my phone
  3. One credit is included in the monthly subscription
  4. Relatively inexpensive
  5. Many titles to choose from
  6. Makes chores something to look forward too
  7. Prevents my brain getting up to mischief while I am painting
  8. Ticking off my TBR list quicker than I would have
  9. Completing my Goodreads reading challenge a real possibility
  10. Discovering hidden gems in the story that the A Game of Thrones TV series doesn’t show

Book Teaser: Recoil by Joanne Macgregor

 

Recoil by Joanne Macgregor is due for release on 14 May 2016.

I am so fortunate to have an ARC and I can’t put it down. If Recoil is not on your TBR list add it now!

There’s more than one enemy and more than one war. The Game is real. Three years after a series of terrorist attacks flooded the US with a lethal plague, society has changed radically.  – abstract from Goodreads.com

The teasers…

As gently as though I was touching a raw wound, I squeezed back on the trigger. The recoiling rifle stock slammed into my shoulder. A vicious expletive from down the avenue told me I’d hit something.

“What the hell did you do, Blue?” he said. His voice was a mixture of amazement and confusion.
“I took the shot,” I said, closing the distance of the last few metres to Sarge and Leya.

For the Love of Reading

For The Love Of Reading

For the Love of Reading . . .

Any bookworm will have a list of the things they love most about reading. Fanatic Avid readers who take the love of reading to the next level (to consume their identity and (if they are lucky) become their bread and butter) will easily jabber on for hours testing the patience of anyone but a fellow book lover soulmate.

The Escape

I have always fallen head first into story worlds which I find far easier to navigate than real life. I recall three-day-long annual treks to my grandparents’ home near the beach where despite the distractions amazing views I spent every day on the road wrapped up in a book (or six). Packing for holidays meant trying to fit in enough books to ensure I was never without another world to escape to. Painfully shy, the books played the additional role of protecting me from unwelcome conversations.

The Covers

Shallow? Maybe. But I’m the first to admit that the cover determines which books I add to my reading list. I know it’s subjective and that there are many great books with unfortunate covers that I have probably missed, but I have judged the book long before I’ve seen the title, the author or possible content. Unless bribed strongly encouraged books are immediately assigned a category somewhere between hell yes and never.

The Ritual

Before eBooks ruined my life made themselves so useful, I followed a personal a bookish ritual every time I started a new book. Every new (to me) book was held like a precious gem while I admired its cover, contemplated the thickness of the spine, stroked the crisp pages, breathed in the new book smell of ink and paper and read the blurb. The anticipation of the treasure within heightened by the wait.

First Lines

Sometimes, if you’re lucky you’ll find a book that you know is going to be great from the very first few lines. The joy of finding such a treasure where the author seems to be talking directly to you is exceptionally rare. Living between Southern Africa and South East Asia the opportunities to attend bookish events are few and far between. This is probably fortunate for authors with whom I have felt such connection as they’d probably run wailing to the hills in response to my enthusiastic ambushing barely contained fandom.

Browsing

If you have never wasted spent time amongst the books lining the shelves of a library or bookstore (virtual or physical) then you’ve never experienced the bittersweet joy of possibilities. You know you’ll never live long enough to read all the books you want to and you have no idea how to choose which will be next but you find yourself greedily drooling in the anticipation of devouring as many as you can!

Sharing 

My heart sings every time I see someone lost in a book. Wanting to find out what they are reading and wallow in the pleasure of discussing books with other bookish people, I have a hard time stopping myself from intruding. If you catch me staring, please put me out of my misery and initiate a bookish conversation!

Characters

Sometimes, if you’re very lucky you’ll come across a character that will jump out of the pages and into your heart. You’ll know straight away that carrying them with you will forever change how you see the world. For me these characters are rare and so precious I am reluctant to share in case you tell me they meant nothing to you… Don’t read on unless you can agree or keep silent! Park, Verity, Lily, Cath, Zuzana

Fantasy Story Worlds

The pleasure that 3comes immersing yourself into a well-constructed story world where life is far from reality but makes perfect sense within the world itself is something that is exceptionally difficult to put into words. These are worlds that you can easily lose time in. Think Narnia or Middle-Earth.

Titles

I love when I discover within the story the reason a particular title is chosen and of course without titles we wouldn’t have fun constructing bookspine poetry.

I know I am not alone in smothering myself with printed pages, what are your bookish pleasures?

Always Stick to the Book

always stick to the book

I have just been to see Allegiant, the final book-to-movie of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series…

They (insert here: Evil scheming movie makers) have changed the story. I know right? Just no.

Always Stick to the Book

The ending is completely different…  Okay so I wasn’t in love with the original ending and yes I spent hours crying and days in hibernation after finishing the book. But it was real. The author said so. So I say so. The end.

Before Allegiant, I thought that Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper book-to-movie was the worst interpretation ever. My Sister’s Keeper was heart-wrenching, shocking, amazing…. The movie was just sweet. Sweet. That was all they could do when they had amazing to work with?

Some directors choose to focus on certain aspects, more than the book did. More violence, more action, more romance. Think The Hunger Games or The Maze Runner. I get that. They want to increase the audience and getting the story out is better than nothing. But they still stick to the original story.

The book is always better. But sometimes the movie can be good, even brilliant.

Just don’t change the story. EVER

Romance Ahead… Bookish Couples for Valentine’s Day

It’s almost Valentine Day and the shops are full of (mostly tacky) red and pink heart-shaped items. While I don’t appreciate the commercial side of the day renowned for its high expectations and grotesquely overpriced novelties, I am a sucker for romance. It might be possible I read more soppy happily-ever-after love stories than I admit. Shh!

This year with my husband across the ocean, my date will be a romantic book. Any suggestions as to which one I should download to my Kindle?

Everyone has at least one favourite bookish couple. I have so many that it was difficult to narrow the choices to fit into this post. These are in no particular order.  Click on the image to read more about the book.

Have you met any of these couples?  Who are your favourite bookish couples?  

Let me know. I’d love to hear from you.

Why I Hate the Sneak Peek

sneak peek

Why I Hate the Sneak Peek

We are talking about sneak peeks, one of my bookish pet peeves, the few chapters of the author’s next book found at the back of the book you’ve just read…  

What I wish publishers knew? They are a waste of time! Well, I think so anyway.

I don’t read them and here’s why…

It’s the feels

When I’ve just finished a book I want time for the story to soak in, time to revel in the experience before I start another book. Depending on the book I’ve just finished this may last a minute or an entire day.
What I don’t want is another book experience, especially one that I haven’t chosen myself.

I feel cheated

But most of all – it’s that feeling that a book I am enjoying still has a while to go… While reading, especially a physical book, I have an idea of how much more of the story I can look forward to by the thickness of the unread part. When it’s a really good book I feel cheated that it ends way before the pages end…
Surely I am not alone in this?

I want it all

If I loved the book I’m going to want to read more of the authors work. But I want to read a whole book. What’s the point of reading a few chapters and then having to wait until I can get my hands on the book? I would prefer to keep the specialness of starting a new book written by a really good author to when I can actually finish the book!

What do you think? Do you read the sneak peeks? Love them / hate them?

I am thankful for libraries

I am thankful for libraries.

In every new town we move to one of the first things I do is register with the local library. When I look back over the places we have lived, I remember each library so vividly I could probably find my way around them in the dark. I guess it’s no wonder I became a librarian myself!

There have been big libraries and small libraries, in one case it was a library caravan, but here’s just one place we lived in where there was no library and that’s a tiny little village in the centre of Sumatra, Indonesia. When we lived there I had to beg and borrow and steal books. I loaded my suitcase with books on return from every trip home to South Africa, I paid exorbitant prices to ship internationally (I didn’t know about Book Depository then), but best of all was Singapore. From big brand bookshops to my favourite second-hand bookshop tucked away in a side street, I was in heaven.

We are returning to that little village in Indonesia and this time I am older and possibly wiser. There will be Book Depository, there will be Kindling, there will be Audibling, there will be begging, borrowing and stealing… and I know that I will never feel that desperate, sick feeling of having nothing to read next. That feeling when you long to read, but know if you do your book will be finished and there is nothing lined up to replace it. I never want to experience that again.

As a school librarian for the last ten years, I have had access to more books than I could possibly ever read, but in preparation for the big move I have resigned and found myself back at the little library in our tiny South African town.

Walking in, after shielding my eyes against the harsh orangey yellowy glare, I was surprised to see how popular it was. (read: I walked in, tripped over a table leg and brought down a whole display stand causing mayhem). I wondered over to the YA section and although it is just one tiny bookshelf I was really impressed to see the titles are pretty recent. Go our library!

What’s your local library like? Do you use it? Have you ever had that awful nothing to read feeling? How did you deal with it? I’d love to hear from you.

An insider tip – the better the borrower statistics the better chance the librarians will be able to get more funding to buy more books. So wherever you live, support your local library, if you have one, and remember to say hi and thank you to the librarians who make it all happen.

These Books Should Be Adapted to Movies

These Books Should Be Adapted to Movies

movie

I love movies almost as much as I love books. Okay that’s not quite true, but I do like movies. A lot.

These are the books I can’t wait to see adapted to film…

 

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor 

This book will remain one of my favourite reads forever. Rich and memorising with unique, enchanting characters.

Once upon a time a little girl was raised by monsters. But angels burnt the doorways to their world and she was all alone…

Do I want to see them on screen? Yes and no. . . The story line full of complex, interweaving layers and I would be so heartbroken if the movie was a disappointment. But I’d still watch it. I think.

 

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein 

I adore WWII books and movies, and this story is one I am so glad I read and would watch the movie over and over again if it was made. I need this movie. Where’s my fairy godmother?

Oct. 11th, 1943-A British spy plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France. . . 

I can’t say much because I don’t do spoilers but don’t miss this book. It may start a little slowly, but it doesn’t end that way… Read it now before the movie is made.

 

Across the Universe by Beth Revis 

I don’t really like Sci-Fi but every now and then I am blown away. This story was totally unexpected with unpredictable with twists and turns. I loved the whole series and hope it’s adapted to movie.

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder. 

 

The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony

A local South African hero, this true story deserves to be seen. The beautiful African bush and the graceful and intelligent elephants would look so good on screen.

He was the herd’s last chance of survival – notorious escape artists, they would all be killed if Lawrence wouldn’t take them.

I have no idea why it’s not a movie. No elephant actors you say? What about elephant puppets, it worked for the stage production of War Horse…

 

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr 

Beautiful and frightening, this Faerie world overlappings our human world. Beware – follow the rules or things will never be the same again.

Rule #3: Don’t stare at invisible faeries. 
Rule #2: Don’t speak to invisible faeries.
Rule #1: Don’t ever attract their attention.

There are just not enough Fae movies – at least not dark, sinister ones…

 

Reckless by Cornelia Funke 

Another brilliant, magical and dangerous world. Find it through a mirror… If you dare.

Dark magic will turn the boy to beast, break the heart of the girl he loves, and cause chaos to rule forever….

Woah! Yes. Please.

 

The Ruins of Gorlan – Ranger’s Apprentice #1 by John Flanagan

Ranger’s Apprentice is one of the most popular series in our school library. Readers of both gender aged from ten to eighteen fight over the battered copies. The books have been read more often that they can last and the pages are literally just holding on with a lick of glue.

The Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people.

 

Mice by Gordon Reece

This psychological thriller is quirky and full of dark comedy.

On the eve of Shelley’s sixteenth birthday, an unwelcome guest disturbs their peace and something inside Shelley snaps.

I loved it and it would translate to screen so well.

 

Defiance by C.J. Redwine 

A fast paced plot, a strong, feisty female protagonist and a dragon that puts all the dragons that came before to shame. What’s not to love?

As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, they discover a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.

 

Banished – The Blackhart Legacy #1 by Liz de Jager 

Another fast-paced fantasy, this time with a feisty heroine and an enchanting Faerie prince. Add betrayal and treachery and this would make a movie worth watching.

Sworn to protect, honour and slay. Because chaos won’t banish itself…

 

These books should be adapted to movie…. What do you think? 

Would you vote for any of these or do you have the perfect book for a movie adaption? I would love to hear about it.
