Attention Bookworms! Here’s 3 New Reads You Need To Add To Your Bookshelf This Month
Because what else is there to do but read?!
2020 was the year that many of us finally got cracking on that ‘to be read’ list. Smashing our good reads goals out of the park, we’re going into 2021 with the same energy, and instead of wasting our money on clothes we’ll probably never even get to wear *cries*, we’re going to spend it on books instead.
Our favourite way to spend an evening at the moment is getting stuck into a good book, and we don’t know about you, but we want to know about every new release there is so we can get adding to our carts right away.
January was a great month for new releases, and so, we’ve rounded up three of our faves to get lost in during one of our evening reads.
Girl A by Abigail Dean
A chilling page-turner, Lex is a successful lawyer in New York, but as a child, she was one of six children who escaped from what the British press dubbed a ‘House of Horrors’. After her mother dies in prison, Lex returns to England to reconnect with her adult siblings and make sense of their traumatic past.
Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas
Author Angie Thomas revisits the characters from her bestselling debut novel, The Hate U Give, in this poignant exploration of Black boyhood and manhood. Set seventeen years before the events of THUG, it follows Star Carter’s father, Maverick, as he tries to extricate himself from the notorious King Lord’s gang.
