I will be heading off to work soon and I’m super excited as Kirilee Barker is coming in today! Her debut novel, The Book of Days was recently published and it’s a fantastic book! I’m currently reading it myself - I’ve only read about 50 pages so far and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I’ll also be going to the Hachette Christmas Roadshow tonight! I’m so excited for tonight, I went to my first roadshow last week for Pan Macmillan’s event and I’m excited to check out some more upcoming new releases.

The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl - GIVEAWAY

thebooker:

This giveaway is open to Australian residents only - sorry!

image

I read this book earlier in the month and I fell in love with it. It was my first book by Melissa Keil, but I’ve since read Life in Outer Space, and I’d easily consider her to be one of my favourite authors now. The publisher, Hardie Grant Egmont, sent me an extra copy of her latest book for a giveaway and I’m so excited to be able to share it with one of my Australian followers!

It’s a Young Adult contemporary novel by Melissa Keil, author of Life in Outer Space. The book is set in a small town and is narrated by a girl called Alba, who lives behind a bakery and draws comics. When a video on Youtube, where some guy apparently predicts the end of the world, goes viral, Doomsday enthusiasts flood Alba’s hometown. It follows her and her awesome group of friends (including the wonderful Grady) as they try to figure out what exactly they want to do now school is over and the chaos that the supposed end of the world brings.
