Hey guys! It is the first day of summer! Looking out of the window, I can definitely agree with that! Probably time to start making iced Mochas and what not! Anyway, this weeks Goodreads Monday is a book that I have had on my TBR for a while now, but it is also a book that I already own! I have a few review books to read, but hopefully I will get to it afterward!

the lie tree

The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge

Published: May 7th 2015

Publisher: Macmillan Children’s books

Winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2015, The Lie Tree is a dark and powerful novel from universally acclaimed author, Frances Hardinge.

It was not enough. All knowledge- any knowledge – called to Faith, and there was a delicious, poisonous pleasure in stealing it unseen.

Faith has a thirst for science and secrets that the rigid confines of her class cannot supress. And so it is that she discovers her disgraced father’s journals, filled with the scribbled notes and theories of a man driven close to madness. Tales of a strange tree which, when told a lie, will uncover a truth: the greater the lie, the greater the truth revealed to the liar. Faith’s search for the tree leads her into great danger – for where lies seduce, truths shatter . . . 

I am really excited to read this book because it just looks amazing! Plus, I cannot say no to a cover like that!

Hey guys! So, clearly I cannot be trusted with Amazon or a book store… and I have no self discipline!! I told myself I would’t buy any new books because I have so many, but I did…

the crown The Crown by Kiera Cass – I have been waiting for this book for over a year and I have already read it and I loved it!!

ACOMAF A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – I think this book is on everyone’s TBR! So, I grabbed a copy on May 3rd and I have just started reading it!

the lie tree The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge – I think I was drawn to this book by the cover… plus I have had it on my TBR for a while! So obviously I couldn’t resist…

down with the shine Down With the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn – I have had this on my TBR for ages and I was upset when I wasn’t able to get an ARC copy!! This book definitely looks like something I am going to really enjoy, so I really look forward to reading this book!

invisible I am Invisible I Am by Harriet Showman – For regular readers of my blog, your probably thinking “but she already read (DNFed) and reviewed this book.” Well, the author contacted me on Goodreads, both to thank me for my review and because she found out (through my review) that the version on Netgalley was a broken version when downloaded onto some e readers. I mean this in the sense that some words were either missing or there were letters missing from the words etc, which isn’t what she was intending for the readers to see! So, I offered to re read the book and she sent me a copy which has all the letters there!

What have you guys added? Feel free to leave links and I will check them all out!
