Seed by Lisa Heathfield. The story of a girl who lives in a butt-crazy cult. Always good.
Stolen by Lucy Christopher. A girl gets kidnapped and held by her captor in the Australian outback, which sounds a little bit too much like that god-awful film Wolf Creek, but in this version the girl actually starts to have feelings for her abductor, so I'm interested to see how that pans out!
Alison Hewitt Is Trapped (And The Dead Are Closing In) Girl trapped in storage cupboard. Zombie apocalypse happens outside.
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. A memoir. I don't usually do memoirs, but this one is the story of a girl who grows up with itinerant parents, so it looked really interesting.
And because I thought my library haul was going to take ages to come in, I went ahead and requested a couple of books on Netgalley and got approved for those:
Burn Girl by Mandy Mikulecak. After Arlie's addict mum dies, she gets put into care and has to learn a whole new life.
A Thousand Nights by E K Johnston. A retelling of the Scheherazade story, which sounds pretty cool.
I'm also reviewing The Glass Mermaid by Poppy Lawless this month, a novella about a mermaid who lives by Lake Eerie and who falls in love with a dying man.
Plus, in addition to these, I've still got Cress and Fairest by Marissa Meyer to read before Winter comes out this Autumn.
So now I have about a billion books to read this month, and do you know what? It's absolutely fine by me!
