Speak: The Graphic Novel | Laurie Halse Anderson
post image

I haven‘t read the book but finished the graphic novel and now I definitely want to read the book. Heartbreaking and powerful, the illustrations added an extra layer of emotion for me. Perfect little read for my camping trip.

I‘m so excited! I‘m sure you can all relate - I‘ve got a (e0 voucher to spend at Waterstones and I‘m going this lunchtime!

I‘ve been waiting until after the #ssgp swap so I didn‘t mess anything up, and I have to say that everyone‘s top 6 isn‘t helping my excitement, or my decision making!

I‘ve tagged some of the books I‘m thinking of below, and hoping that a few may be on offer....

What else do you recommend?!

Hooked_on_books The Lost Man is good and I am also looking forward to Dreyer‘s English. I would recommend Bad Blood. Enjoy the shopping! 3y
eraderneely I really enjoyed Dreyer‘s English on audio, but I‘m sure it‘s just as funny as a physical book. And then you have a reference copy! 3y
jenniferw88 I'm going to Waterstones today too! I'm tempted by July's thriller of the month 3y
Emilymdxn The salt path is incredible! I also really enjoyed the lost man a lot 3y
julesG I secod Dreyer's English! 3y
squirrelbrain Ooh yes @Hooked_on_books - forgot about Bad Blood.... another one I‘ve been eyeing up here on Litsy! 3y

Thank you so much to @kaysworld1 for my fabulous #ssgp goodies! These are ‘just‘ the books as I couldn‘t fit everything onto one photo...

I‘ve been wanting to read Cutting for Stone for ages so that‘s going to go on holiday with me in 2 weeks. Krakauer is new to me and I bought one of his the other day, but not this one! 😁 The Alienist looks like it‘s set in NYC so perfect for me!

And as for the colouring book... ❤️🐿❤️🐿❤️🐿❤️🐿

TrishB You‘ll love Cutting for Stone! 3y
Cathythoughts I have Cutting For Stone too ... I‘ve yet to read it 3y
eraderneely What a wonderful coloring book! 3y
kaysworld1 All the books were on your list I stalked it religiously... 😆 Enjoy your holiday when you do go 🌼🌼🌼 3y

Oh. My. Goodness @Avanders you freaking nailed it! I lost track of how many times I said “wow” lol. Also, you are a Tetris wizard lol because I have no clue how you got all that to fit in the box 😂 But seriously, literally everything I love was in this box. I don‘t even know which book I want to read first. And that sloth mermaid pin! How on earth did you find that?! And did you make that bag?! It‘s adorable! Thank you SO, SO MUCH!! #SSGP

AmyG That coffee is excellent! 3y
RvnclawWhovian @AmyG it smells SO good! I can‘t wait to grind it up and brew it 3y

Ggrrr was out this morning so missed the postman, although he even tried to deliver twice, bless him (we have CCTV!)

I‘m hoping this is my #ssgp parcel so if you‘re my secret santa, thank you!

julesG Fingers crossed! 3y

I have your #SummerSantaGoesPostal package ready to go first thing in the morning @wen4blu - I‘m going ahead and tagging you so you know you haven‘t been forgotten! Apologies for cutting it close to opening day. I injured myself over the weekend and didn‘t get anything done that I was supposed to. 🙄 And I hope you don‘t mind the tissue paper! I ran out of wrapping paper, naturally! 😆😁 Can‘t wait for opening day!


wen4blu Your timing is perfect, thanks!!!! 3y
