Book Haul April 2017

These are the books that found themselves on my book shelf this April...

The New Rules of Work by Alexandra Cavoulacos and Kathryn Minshew. This was a Goodreads giveaway win. I've had a flick through and I will definitely be dipping in and out of this one in the hope of finding some tips on getting ahead and becoming more confident in the workplace.

From Darkest Skies by Sam Peters. Another Goodreads Giveaways win. This sounds so interesting and has a really interesting cover image. 

White Fur by Jardine Libaire (ARC). This is a debut novel with fantastic reviews ahead of its publication date. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to this one. Another Goodreads giveaway - yes, I am totally obsessed with book giveaways.

Laura Lake and the hipster weddings by Wendy Holden. Yep... Goodreads Giveaway. I'm hoping for a few laughs from this one.

Oi Dog! by Kes & Claire Gray and Jim Field. I got this one in preparation for story time whilst having my little nephew over to stay. 'Oi Dog, get off the frog!' Love it! The pictures inside are gorgeous too.

Usbourne Peep inside the Zoo illustrated by Simona Dimitri. Another one for my nephew - full of lots of lovely surprises behind the flaps. 

Big little lies by Liane Moriarty. This was my Easter present. I'd much rather a good book than a chocolate egg. I've heard so much about the TV series and I absolutely can not watch a TV series or film if I know a book of it exists. I think I'll read this next and then watch it and compare the two.

The Horus Heresy Omnibus - Crusades End by Dan Abnett, Ben Counter and Graham McNeill. The first three books of many, this book was my partners birthday present. This is not a book I would ordinarily pick up, in fact I wouldn't normally consider reading this at all but my partner has asked me to be open minded and give it a chance. I'm told that it is quite deep and raises quite a few moral questions so for that reason I have included this book in my haul. I'll try, I can't say fairer than that. Who knows, maybe I'll surprise myself and love it...

The stranger in my home by Adele Parks. This was my mums Easter present from me but she doesn't keep books after reading them so it has made its way back to me.. there was no ulterior motive in the buying of this gift, honest! This is a book about a family who discover their teenage daughter is not biologically theirs after a mix up in the hospital after birth. This would be my worst nightmare so I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out in the book. 

Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. I actually came across a 2005 mini series based on this book which I really wanted to see but book first.. thems the rules. 

Watching Edie by Camilla Way. Another one my mum had finished with and passed on. I'm so happy she's a reader and doesnt keep all the books like I do! 

I'll let you know what I thought once I get round to reading them. If you've read any of these please let me know what you thought.
