More Good Things To Come

29.07.15 | Comment?

This week I’ve selected three quite different types of book to highlight: the historical war novel, the romance novel, and the music novel. These will all be arriving in the next few months, so reserve them and enjoy!

The Boy at the Top of the Mountain, John Boyne. The new novel from the author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. “When Pierrot becomes an orphan, he must leave his home in Paris for a new life with his Aunt Beatrix, a servant in a wealthy household at the top of the German mountains. But this is no ordinary time, for it is 1935 and the Second World War is fast approaching; and this is no ordinary house, for this is the Berghof, the home of Adolf Hitler. Quickly, Pierrot is taken under Hitler’s wing, and is thrown into an increasingly dangerous new world: a world of terror, secrets and betrayal, from which he may never be able to escape.” (goodreads.com)

Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between, Jennifer E. Smith. Great for romance lovers. “Of course Clare made a list. She creates lists for everything. That’s just how she is. But tonight is Clare and Aidan’s last night before college and this list will decide their future, together or apart. It takes them on a rollercoaster ride through their past – from the first hello in science class to the first conversation at a pizza joint, their first kiss at the beach and their first dance in a darkened gymnasium – all the way up to tonight. A night of laughs, fresh hurts, last-minute kisses and an inevitable goodbye. But will it be goodbye forever or goodbye for now?” (goodreads.com)

Boot Camp, Robert Muchamore. This is the next in the Rock War series, from the author of the ridiculously popular CHERUB series. “Jay, Summer, Dylan and their bandmates are headed to RockWar Manor. But the rock star life of music festivals and glitzy premieres isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Can the bands hold it together to make it through to the last stage of the competition?” (goodreads.com)
