I have been extremely busy for the last week because I have started a new job. I am really enjoying it so far but I haven’t had any time to write blog posts this week. I am back now and I am scheduling blogging time into my day-to-day life!
A lot of books are being released throughout October and I am so excited about a number of them! I cannot wait to pick up my own copies of these books!
Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel by Val Emmich with Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
“When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family’s grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend..”
I am actually reading this book at the minute but I am so excited for it to be released into the world. This is a novelisation of the musical Dear Evan Hansen that I have been unable to see because I live in the UK. I am so glad this has been made into a novel because it gives me an opportunity to hear Evan’s story.

No Fixed Address by Susin Nielsen
“Felix Knutsson is nearly thirteen, lives with his mother and pet gerbil Horatio, and is brilliant at memorising facts and trivia. So far, pretty normal. But Felix and his mom Astrid have a secret: they are living in a van. Astrid promises it’s only for a while until she finds a new job, and begs Felix not to breathe a word about it. So when Felix starts at a new school, he does his very best to hide the fact that most of his clothes are in storage, he only showers weekly at the community centre, and that he doesn’t have enough to eat.”
This is a book I have been eager to read for a long time. I am a big fan of Susin Nielsen’s work so I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this book. It covers the topic of homelessness which is something I’ve not read about in YA before.

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
“Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it. Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things. But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?”
I am going to an event in Manchester for the release of this book and I cannot wait to meet both Becky and Adam. I love both of their work individually and I am anxious to see how they work together. I am hoping to read this book before the event but I’m not sure that will be possible.
