Wow October was a busy month. I’ve been super hectic with studying and work and have had family visiting too. To make up for being quieter than usual I’m running a giveaway to win Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella! See the Gleam mechanism at the end of the blog to enter :).
I’m a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella (author of the Shopaholic series, among many other books) and this is her first young adult novel.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.
October Wrap Up
I somehow still managed to read 5 books this month and they were all great! Click on the images for more detail on the books.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was a re-read for me as I bought the new illustrated version. It is b-e-a-utiful. I fell in love with the illustrated version of Philosopher’s Stone and I just need to get them all. Unfortunately the next one isn’t released for another year – so it’s going to be a long wait to get the full collection! But it is definitely worth it.
If you’re looking for a Christmas present for someone who’s a Harry Potter fan, they will LOVE this.
Let me know in the comments what books you read this month… and use Gleam to get an entry into the giveaway!
