Birthday Book Haul

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

It was my birthday on the 19th of January and I got a few books, so I took a photo of them and thought I'd share it with you.

1) Bruce Springsteen's autobiography. I'm a huge Bruce fan and always have been, My mum bought this for me but she's requested to borrow it! I think I might take it on holiday
2) Sweet Caress by William Boyd. My friend Laura bought this for me. Last year we swapped books a lot and she lent me a William Boyd one as she loves him. I still haven't read it! I need to get on that. I'm looking forward to this, it looks good.
3) The Power by Naomi Alderman. I did a birthday swap alongside one of my Christmas swaps, and this was one of the books Kelly sent. It looks fascinating! 
4) Sawbones by Catherine Johnson. My friend Sam bought me this. I saw Catherine at YA Shot and liked the sound of her book, so I added to my wishlist and then Sam bought it from there.
5) Triptych by Rhian Jones, Daniel Lukes, and Larissa Wodtke. Technically this wasn't a present, but it arrived on my birthday so I'm totally counting it. Rhian is a friend of mine, through music fandoms, She offered for her publisher to send friends copies of this new book, which is a study of the Manic Street Preachers' seminal third album The Holy Bible, so I bit her hand off and asked for a copy. The album is one of my favourite albums of all time - although very depressing and sad if you've never heard it. I'm really looking forward to reading this.
6) No Gypsies Served by Miriam Wakerly. Sharon sent me the prequel to this in one of my Christmas swaps, and both were on my wishlist. My friend Jacqui bought this for me. I really need to pick them both up! They're both such pretty editions, too.
7) The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson. Jacqui bought me this, too. Stupidly, I think I left it on my wishlist when I already have a copy. I'll find someone to pass this on to, for sure.
8) The Deviants by C J Skuse. Kelly sent me this, too. I've heard a lot of buzz about it in YA circles and it sounds really good. Plus I really love the cover!

Which one of these should I pick up first??
