    So many good looking books in your mailbox. I read the first Rosie book so I hope the second is just as good. Happy New Year!

  2. The Morris nominees look terrific. I love Hopkins’ work but don’t think I could handle free verse in audio.

    So many interesting looking books! I’m not even sure where I’d start, but maybe Emmy & Oliver? Happy reading!

  4. Yay, you got all those eARCs! I really want to read Paperweight; it looks so heartbreaking and beautiful and that cover is gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what you think of it. I’m now really looking to Emmy & Oliver as well now that I’ve finally read a book by Robin Benway and loved it! And The Night We Said Yes looks really intriguing; reviews seem to be good so far.

    I still haven’t read a single Elizabeth Wein book, I REALLY MUST.

    Hope you enjoy all your reads!

  7. Hi Lucy,

    You have had a bumper week!

    These are all new to me books and indeed, authors, so choosing a favourite is going to be almost impossible. I do however, particularly like the sound of your Morris nominee selections, so good luck with those.

    The spine ends of your mail selection, all look so bright and cheerful, who could resist!

    Enjoy your reading week, wherever in your pile you decide to start.
