The trouble with working in a bookshop is that most of my pay packets goes back to the people who pay me! The travel writing binge continues with these two beauties 😍😍 one for Venice (where I‘ve been) and one for Patagonia (which is on the list)

Any thoughts of prefaces/preludes/prologues/forewords? I have a cheeky confession- sometimes I just skip it! Especially in fantasy novels it often feels like waffle...

Ah ma gaaaad! Cosy evening in meant I got to finish off this beauty. New book from Marissa Meyer this one with a super heroes twist! Perfect for all the marvel fans out there 😋 but a hugely non satisfying ending! I presume there will be more to come but the end was so abrupt!

Almost Love | Louise O'Neill
post image

New book from Louise O'Neil who popped by the shop yesterday- I haven't read any of her others but they sound interesting anyone know where I should start? What genre does this fall under? 🙄🙄

Itchyfeetreader I have read one of hers - it was an (old) YA distopian riff on the handmaiden tale with some pretty interested comments on. Entity and female friendship. I'd recommend 2y
TheLondonBookworm @Itchyfeetreader hmmm interesting I'll give that one a go :) thanks! 2y
Scarlett_ohara Did you end up reading it? I just finished it today and I loved Louise O'Neill's books "Only Ever Yours" (which I'm guessing is the one @Itchyfeetreader was talking about) and "Asking For It", which is a heartbreaking story about rape and how quick people are to blame the victim. "Almost Love" is just as good as the first two. 12mo

Well that was a creep up on me great read! Got sent a proof from work and absolutely loved it! Modern Salem mixed with its witch trials heritage, written by a descendent of one who was a part of it. All the while being fast paced, exciting and fascinating! P.S this is already out in the US (lucky you) but not in the UK till January next year!!!!

It has such a sprawling story line and you really get into the characters heads ❤️❤️❤️ Good if you like Books like Sorcerer to the Crown :) P.S please forgive the unappealing background of trains and the BFIs back entrance 😂😂

julesG I honestly regret not buying it on Saturday when I had the chance to grab a signed copy. 🙈🙈🙈🙈 2y
TheLondonBookworm @julesG oh noo! That would have been so cool. Maybe they've still got some in stock? 🙈 2y
julesG @TheLondonBookworm Probably, but I'm no longer in London. 2y

Finished the new Alex Rider!! Haven't read one of these in forever and I kinda missed listening to all his crazy exploits 😝 it's much the same as all the others but still great fun to read if you love a good teen spy action packed adventure!

Kinda sad I only took photos of two of the bookshops in Kinsale, but in my defence I was distracted by all the beautiful books. Also the collie who lives in one of the bookshops with his guitar playing owner- I've never met a cooler person.
