The idea is that any books I got myself, was gifted, received for review all go in this post so you can see what it is that I got! Each book shown will also have a book synopsis and a clearer picture of it’s cover.
Bloomsbury were kind enough to send me two of there upcoming releases!
The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell – Expected Release Date: September 9th 2015 [Edit: This is future Tyler, she forgot that she was scheduling this post to go up quite significantly after she received these books, and therefore this book is already out! Apologises!]
Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora’s mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans.
When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.
The Light That Gets Lost by Natasha Carthew – Expected Release Date: November 5th 2015
A small boy hiding in a cupboard witnesses something no child should ever see. He tries not to look but he still hears it. And when he comes out, there’s no mistaking. His mum and dad have been killed. And though he’s only small, he swears that he’ll get revenge one day.
Years later, Trey enters a strange camp that is meant to save troubled teenagers. It’s packed with crazies, god-botherers, devoted felons and broken kids. Trey’s been in and out of trouble ever since the day the bad thing happened, but he’s he not here for saving: this is where he’ll find the man who did it. Revenge and healing, salvation and hell are a boiling, dangerous mix, and Trey finds himself drawn to a girl, a dream and the offer of friendship in the dark.
