Three gorgeous new books have dropped onto my mat this week. I'm excited about the whole trio. First up is a very recently published YA debut novel.
Every year at an exclusive private boarding school in New York State, the graduating students uphold an old tradition - they must swear an oath of secrecy and leave behind a "treasure" for each incoming senior. When Duncan Meade inherits the room and the secrets of Tim Macbeth, he uncovers evidence of a clandestine romance, and unravels the truth behind one of the biggest mysteries in the school's history.
This one promises to be emotional.
Next up is Lauren Beukes' The Shining Girls.
They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. But what if death came back to try again?
A pattern of murders across an unfeasibly long timespan sounds terrifying. This one might keep me awake at night - I can't wait to read it.
Finally I am also the happy recipient of Jenny Mayhew's A Wolf in Hindelheim.
