Library Haul #2

library haul 2

In my recent TBR post I said that I had a three-book library haul coming up but as you can see there are four here as yet another book turned up the day after! I'm already behind after spending the first few days of the month finishing up a November read (eep!) but am still hoping to get through as many of these as possible. Anyway, here's a rundown of the books...

The Elites, Natasha Ngan (2013)
After seeing lots of great reviews I decided it was about time I picked up this debut YA novel written by fellow blogger Natasha (aka Girl In The Lens). This dystoptian stand-alone sounds very intriguing and I'm looking forward to reading it.

How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff (2004)
I'll admit this isn't necessarily something I would normally choose but after seeing the film trailer a while back I thought I would give it a chance... although I have since seen some not so complimentary reviews of the adaptation!

Cruel Summer, James Dawson (2013)
I'm very intrigued by the style of this book which apparently takes on the format of a screenplay and love the murder mystery idea. Kath gave this one a full five stars over at Blogger's Bookshelf and it has also received some amazing reviews over on Goodreads. I'm just hoping it will live up to expectations!

UnSouled, Neal Shusterman (2013)
This is the third book in the Unwind series which so far I have really enjoyed. I loved the first book and named it one of my favourites of 2012, however I was a little disappointed with the first half of the second instalment. The whole concept of unwinding is very unique and this series has some great characters - I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next! 

Have you read any of these?
