Sorry for my silence! It’s been a busy start to the working year but look- we’re already in February… And I’m already looking forward to March. Time flies. Soon it’ll be spring and we’ll stop having to take off our 5 extra layers when we get on the tube… I dream of those days.
Next month there are some really exciting new books being published, here’s a little look at a few of them:
Half Wild – Sally Green
Published by Penguin, 26th March 2015
The second book in the Half Bad trilogy sees the half black, half white witch Nathan deal with many conflicts including the death of his best friend, the attempted rescue of the love of his life and coming to terms with the dark power of his Gift.
Compared to Harry Potter and Twilight, while simultaneously like nothing I’ve read before – Half Wild will keep you on the edge of your seat. Half Bad set the scene for this spectacular sequel.
The Shut Eye – Belinda Bauer
Published by Bantam Press, 12th March 2015
I’ve yet to read this, but am a HUGE fan of Belinda Bauer’s work. I can highly recommend the thrilling and complex Rubbernecker and The Facts of Life and Death.
The Shut Eye is about a mourning mother who seizes help from a psychic who may be able to tell her what happened to her son… But is the psychic what he claims to be?
Birth of a Theorem – Cedric Villani
Published by Bodley Head, 5th March 2015
I was lucky enough to attend a lecture at work led by the astounding Cedric Villani and can safely say I’ve never heard someone speak to passionately and with such ease about mathematics.
He has been awarded the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for mathematicians and The Birth of a Theorem takes us on the journey that got him there. Through imagination, beauty and obsession, Villani brings accessibility and excitement to mathematics- no mean feat.
