The atmosphere of The Summer Seaside Kitchen was incredible. Even though Mure isn’t a real island but an amalgam of various islands of the Northern Isles, it completely came to life. I could picture the scenic views, the landmarks and houses so perfectly, I very nearly felt as though I had been transported to Mure myself. The more I read, the more I fell in love with the island. That’s how well Jenny Colgan detailed everything!
Even though there are only six new YA releases this week, I’ve seen all three fantasy books hyped in the book blogosphere. Besides these, I recommend checking out these two re-releases: The Special Ones by Em Bailey and Fragile Like Us (a.k.a. Beautiful Broken Things) by Sara Barnard. Both of these got four stars from me.
