I haven't had to read a book for book group in ages, either I'd already read it or I couldn't make the meeting, so I have pre-bought the next three months' worth and will try and read them promptly. There's a couple of thrillers so I will have to psyche myself up to be in the mood but I am looking forward to The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August which has been on my wishlist a while.

I'm not sure what's going on with UKYA titles in September; we have a Monster and Monsters coming up. This could get confusing... I also received an Adventure Time book which I'm giving away here.

Have you read any of these? Feel free to leave your (spoiler-free) thoughts or links to reviews in the comments.

  1. The only one I have read is The Girl on The Train, it is raved about I thought it was 3/5, here is my review

    I am so jealous of your fabulous wee pile, I got two through yesterday, had forgot the joy of book post :) Looking forward to your thoughts on these.


  2. I read Child 44. I didn't like it but it's very popular. It is quick read. Book clubs can be a mixed bay, can't they.

    1. We have really mixed tastes in our book club so we get quite a variety. It's unusual for them to pick thrillers though so extra unusual for 2 close together!

  3. I've heard good things about This is Where It Ends. I hope you love all of your new books.
