I had a good week this week. Got some good news on Friday about a job I applied for. Interview on 4th October! So that's good, and I got something SPECIAL in the post! As you will see in a moment! A very Angel-ish week!
The Weirdstone of Brisingamen by Alan Garner.
50th Anniversary Edition
"A tale of Alderley. When Colin and Susan are pursued by eerie creatures across Alderley Edge, they are saved by the Wizard. He takes them into the caves of Fundindelve, where he watches over the enchanted sleep of one hundred and forty knights. But the heart of the magic that binds them – Firefrost, also known as the Weirdstone of Brisingamen – has been lost. The Wizard has been searching for the stone for more than 100 years, but the forces of evil are closing in, determined to possess and destroy its special power. Colin and Susan realise at last that they are the key to the Weirdstone’s return. But how can two children defeat the Morrigan and her deadly brood?"
I haven't actually heard of this before, but I was sent the sequel a week or so ago and when I did some googling, saw the mass love for this book so I am looking forward to reading this!
Thank you to Harper Collins for this!
Angel by L.A. Weatherly
"Willow knows she s different from other girls. And not just because she loves tinkering around with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into peoples futures, know their dreams, their hopes and their regrets, just by touching them. She has no idea where she gets this power from... But Alex does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows Willows secret and is on a mission to stop her. The dark forces within Willow make her dangerous and irresistible. In spite of himself, Alex finds he is falling in love with his sworn enemy."
Right, first off, two samplers! These feature the prologue and the first 2 chapters. And I'm quoted on the back!
And then a finished copy came through yesterday!! It's so cool! The cover is brilliant and it has this finish to it that feels really nice when you touch it. Almost like fabric. Very cool. And I am quoted in it! :D ARGH! PICTURE BELOW! Although it's not very good quality!
Very exciting! My first ever quote! I never imagined when I started this blog that I'd ever be quoted in an actual book that actual people can buy and actually read. It's just insane! :D And for it to be a book that I loved so much and am excited about is just a bonus! Thanks Usborne! :D
Angel is published on 1st October, so get saving them pennies and buying it. It's awesome (review here). Also look out for something cool coming soon Angel related. I'm very excited about that!
So that is what I got this week. What did you get? Hope this week is a good and happy one for you! :)
