#BookADayUK September | Week Four

#BookADayUK September | Week Four
I participated in #BookADayUK in June and after a little break, I thought I’d participate again in September. This month it’s hosted by We Love This Book. I’ve also been tweeting and posting a new photo on Tumblr every day, so here’s a recap of the last week! Clicking on each image takes you to the Tumblr post.

22nd: Best book recommended by a bookseller
I actually don’t think I’ve ever asked a bookseller for a recommendation! But I did make my next John Wyndham purchase The Midwich Cuckoos after a bookseller recommended it while I was buying The Day of the Triffids and The Chrysalids.

23rd: Favourite prize-winning book
Ketchup Clouds is one of my favourite books of the year so far and it won the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in 2013. It’s an example of superb storytelling and a novel that encapsulates beautiful writing. Ketchup Clouds draws you in straight away and doesn’t let go until you are finally given some answers.

24th: Book set in the 1920s
I haven’t read many books set in the 1920s, so I picked The Diviners by Libba Bray, which I’m finally going to read next month.

25th: A book recommended by your parents
I’m not too sure how it started, but my mother was on a North Korea kick two years ago. She asked me to find her a new book to read and I came across Nothing to Envy. After reading it, she told me I had to read it too!

26th: Favourite poetry collection
Unfortunately I very rarely read poetry and so I don’t have a selection for this!

27th: A book set in your favourite country to visit
Wanderlove and The Sea Sisters made me want to pack up and head off to countries on my wishlist, like the USA, Italy and Australia. Although these books aren’t really set in those places, they made me want to travel!

28th: Literary troublemaker
I don’t have a favourite, but Mary-Mary is a lovely collection of witty and charming stories about Mary-Mary’s mischievous adventures.

29th: The book that made you question everything
It just felt strange to think that The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy device is really just an early version of reading Wikipedia on a Kindle.

30th: The best book you read this month
If you’re a fan of YA contemporary, especially UKYA, you’ll want to pick up Lobsters! It’s hilarious and honest. I don’t often laugh out loud, but I had to try to stop myself laughing on public transport. If you enjoyed Trouble, you’ll love this.
