SEPTEMBER Book Bonanza

So the summer is officially over. The school is starting soon. Kids are back there so the mums can returned to their work and finally find some time to put feet down and enjoy a good book. And as usual, it's the time for me to share with you the beautiful treasures - new books - I have discovered, re-searched and now I am a proud owner of. Yes, my private library is getting bigger and bigger, but I cannot help it! THERE IS SO MANY BOOKS WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED AND READ!

So here is the list of new adventure I found in book stores.  ENJOY! Hope you will find one, which will catch your attention!


N-W By Zadie Smith

Zadie Smith's brilliant tragicomic NW follows four Londoners - Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan - after they've left their childhood council estate, grown up and moved on to different lives. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their city is brutal, beautiful and complicated. Yet after a chance encounter they each find that the choices they've made, the people they once were and are now, can suddenly, rapidly unravel. A portrait of modern urban life. NW is funny, sad and urgent - as brimming with vitality as the city itself. 


You can't STOP the future. You can't REWIND the past. The only way to learn the secret....is to press PLAY.

Clay Jensen returns home to find a strange package with his name on it. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker - his classmate and first love - who committed suicide two weeks earlier. 

Hannah's voice explains there are thirteen reasons why she killed herself. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. 

All through the night, Clay keeps listening - and what he discovers changes his life... FOREVER.

A mysterious island. 
An abandoned orphanage. 
A strange collection of very peculiar photographs. 

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that Miss Peregrine's children were more than peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow - impossible though it seems - they may still be alive. 

A spine-thingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows. 

THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern (Hardback)

The circus arrives without warning.

No announcements precede it...

It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. 

"The Night Circus pulls you into a world as dark as it is dazzling. You will not want to leave it. " TEA OBREHT 

I have already read THE NIGHT CIRCUS and you can find the review on this blog. But it was a borrowed copy. So I have decided to purchase my own. The hardback is just simply stunningly beautiful.
