There’s no denying it any more, Autumn is officially here and Winter isn’t too far behind it. That can only mean that it’s time to snuggle up by the fire with a good book.
Here are 5 new books to add to your reading list right now…
Do we really need to introduce the Oh My God What A Complete Aisling series to you? We doubt it! But when it comes to new books, this is the one we are most excited about.
If you haven’t read the series yet you need to get on it ASAP – it’s hilarious and just so uniquely Irish. Aren’t we all just a little bit Aisling?
When Deena’s wild and mysterious sister Mandy disappears – presumed dead – her family are heartbroken. But Mandy has always been troubled. It’s just another bad thing to happen to Deena’s family. Only Deena refuses to believe it’s true.
And then the letters start arriving. Letters from Mandy, claiming that their family’s blighted history is not just bad luck or bad decisions – but a curse, handed down through the generations. Mandy has gone in search of the curse’s roots, and now Deena must find her. What they find will heal their family’s rotten past – or rip it apart forever.
Last year we were absolutely obsessed with Scarlett Curtis’ debut book, Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and other lies), so we were delighted to find out that she was following it up with a second book, It’s Not Ok To Feel Blue (and other lies).
Scarlett approached over 70 people to write about their mental health experience. The result is funny, sad, enlightening and eliminates that feeling isolating feeling that you’re the only person in the world and that “it’s ok” to feel the way you are.
Contributors to the book include Emilia Clarke, Hannah Witton, Naomi Campbell, Sam Smith and Scarlett Moffatt to name but a few.
Years have passed since the love between Sephy – a Cross – and Callum – a Nought – destroyed their world and changed their families and society forever.
Society appears to be very different now. For the first time ever, a Nought Prime Minister – Tobey Durbridge – is in power. Race and class don’t divide people anymore. But things are never really that easy.
Because Tobey’s just been framed for murder, and the only way to free himself is to turn to his oldest friend – Callie-Rose.
Their families divisions run deep, and when two young people are kidnapped, their lives and everything they’ve fought for are put in the firing line.
And when you’re playing a game as dangerous as this one, it won’t be long before someone gets caught in the crossfire…
We are huge fans of Cecelia Ahern at missy.ie. We previously had the chance to chat to Cecelia. And we also named Cecelia’s debut novel, P.S, I Love you as a really great book to transition on your reading from YA.
So, we were very excited to find out that Cecelia has finally given us a whole new chapter, or in this case book, so we can find out what happens next to Holly as she moves on with her life.
