Every Sunday, we share the books that managed to find their way into our shelves either from the library, sent to us for review, or bought from really nice bookstores online, book shops where we live, or during our travels. This week I am glad to share a few titles sent to me for review by Pansing Books, and a few that I bought for our research project that looks into building a database of multicultural/ international titles that may be used to facilitate social and emotional learning and will be shared with teachers here in Singapore.
Human Acts by Han Kang, Kids Of Appetite by David Arnold, Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier, Your Heart Is A Muscle The Size Of A Fist by Sunil Yapa, The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde.
Mischling by Affinity Konar, The Woman On The Stairs by Bernhard Schlink, The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen, A Darker Shade Of Magic by V. E. Schwab, A Gathering Of Shadows by V. E. Schwab, Drama Rama by E. Lockhart.
We Come Apart by Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan. And yes the review copy came with a can of Garrett popcorn, my absolute favourite in the world.
