While there aren’t any hyped releases this week, many of them are accompanied by rather intriguing synopses. The only genre that is lacking in the YA department is historical fiction. Contemporary, science fiction and fantasy, though, cover a broad base, as do paperback and re-releases.
There are books aplenty to pick from this week’s releases to keep you busy all summer. If you prefer paperbacks, you won’t be in want either. With so many YA books hitting the shelves, you could probably play a good round of Jenga. Although, you’d probably need all our waking hours to read if you hope to finish your upcoming acquisitions before the new releases next week.
Bust out your London maps! Needless to say, the city’s most central to London Belongs to Us. Anyone who lives in or has ever been to London is bound to appreciate the landmarks that the characters pass through in this book. I’ve never set foot onto the capital of the UK, so I might’ve derived greater joy if it had been set in Geneva, Paris, Rome, Berlin or another big city I have been to. Nonetheless, I appreciated the sentiment behind the heavy focus on the locale.
