Some of you may know that it’s my birthday tomorrow. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing for my birthday on this blog yet, I’m not sure if I’ll do much at all to be honest as I really haven’t planned anything but I’m sure I’ll come up with something if it’s even just a poem. In the meantime, what a wonderful present I got in the post yesterday from Walker Books. It’s more books! There’s two books that I’ve been sent and as usual I’m going to review them here as soon as I can. But in the meantime feast your eyes on these lovely books and tell me if you’re thinking of reading them (or have already!)…
The first is this beautiful book:
The Mortal Instruments (Book 1): City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – The tenth anniversary of Cassandra Clare’s phenomenal City of Bones demands a luxe new edition. The pride of any fan’s collection, City of Bones now has new cover art, over thirty interior illustrations, and six new full-page colour portraits of everyone’s favourite characters! This beautifully crafted collector’s item also includes a new piece written by Cassandra Clare. A perfect gift for the Shadowhunter fan in your life. This is the book where Clary Fray first discovered the Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world and back to their own. The book where she first met Jace Wayland, the best Shadowhunter of his generation. The book that started it all.
That book sounds amazing but there’s another special book I got, at least it’s like a birthday gift for me!…
Julius Zebra: Rumble with the Romans by Gary Northfield – So you think you know ZEBRAS, do you? They’re handsome, eat lots of grass, and um…are always getting eaten by lions. Let’s face it, they’re a little bit boring and stupid, too. But a tussle with a grumpy gladiator can soon change a zebra…So cheer on our stripy hero, Julius, as he scraps for survival in history’s deadliest theatre: THE COLOSSEUM! Just don’t call him a horse! (or Debra…)
Having come to the Julius Zebra series from the second book and read both ‘Bundle with the Britons’ and ‘Entagled with the Egyptians’ I’m so excited to be able to read the first book that started my love of this funny series! I also hear there’s going to be a fourth book in the series too, set in Ancient Greece! 😮 I’m making a prediction of that cover being green (seeing as we’ve got a yellow, red, and blue cover already :P)
Let me know if you’ve read any of these books before or plan to, or even look forward to my reviews 😍
