Today I’m excited to share with you yet another brilliant book haul from Walker Books and Andersen Press! These books all came courtesy of Walker Books (who also distribute Andersen Press titles) and a huge thank you once again to Hannah for the chance to read and review these, which I’ve already been devouring even though I only recently aquired them! 🙂 There’s a mix of picture books, children’s reading and ya here this month so I’ve split this haul into several different photos below, to be able to show them all to you. A lot of these books I’ve already been reading so many the reviews for this haul will be up very soon, in fact beginning next week onwards! Let me know if you find some book that sounds interesting in this haul and we’ll start with the picture books first, and as always the descriptions are short ones from an email rather than full blurbs…

And now on to one ya book this month (sorry for the photo colour looking a little strange/too orange)…
Finding Jupiter by Kelis Rowe – What if Romeo & Juliet took place in Memphis in 2022? When Ray and Orion meet at the ice rink, it feels like the stars have aligned. But something in their families’ past is standing in their way.
So, what do you think of this selection of children’s and teen books? You may have noticed that Wonderscape is here after I have already received Legendarium from Walker Boks last month. Well, I only realised later after getting those books that Legendarium is the second book in the series and so I asked if it could be read as a standalone, and even though the answer is yes, they were more than happy to send the first book which I’m soooo excited about as it sort of a gaming world and anything to do with gaming I LOVE! 😀
As always, reviews for all of these will be appearing on the blog soon, in fact I already have a few created ready to publish in this blog from next week onwards, so do look out for those. 🙂
