This meme was created by Lauren @ Lauren’s Page Turners and I think it’s such an awesome idea to share books on your TBR and introduce people to new books! All you have to do is to pick a book on your TBR and show it off!

If you have read this book please tell me your thoughts, with NO SPOILERS please!!!

I’m choosing books that I own for a while!

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley


My Comments:

I received this book in The YA Chronicles subscription box last year sometime. I still haven’t read this book yet, but I hope to soon! This book always intrigued me as it says that the book is about books.

The Book:

Publication Date:  I have no idea, Goodreads says June 6th, 2017. But that’s 3 months away, but I have had a copy of the book since last year sometime.
Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books
Genre: YA Contemporary
Pages: 352

Goodreads Synopsis:

This is a love story. It’s the story of a second-hand bookshop called Howling Books where people leave letters to strangers, or those they love, or want to love, between the pages of books in the Letter Library.

Henry Jones and Rachel Sweetie are best friends. Or they were. Before Rachel moved away to the sea. Now, she’s back, grieving for her brother Cal who drowned in the sea that he loved.

Rachel loves Henry. Henry loves Amy. Amy loves Amy but is happy for Henry to love her too.

This is a book about books. About the power of literature to cradle our past, present and future selves. It’s about how we leave ourselves behind when we die. How we leave our histories in the things we love – like books.

And that is all for this week! Have you read this book? Let me know what you thought if you did! No spoilers please!!

    This sounds kind of interesting, but odd at the same time! Also, it was originally published August 30th 2016 🙂

      Thanks. It was so weird that Goodreads was only saying June 2017. 😑

        It was originally published by pan Macmillan Australia – and that edition you posted is being published by Knopf? I think it said, which is why there were different publishing times 🙂 you just have to scan through the other editions on Goodreads 🙂

        I just clicked on the cover that matches the copy I own. Never went and checked which publisher my copy was from.

        I do that too usually 🙂 but if you’re unsure in the future, you know where to look 😀

    This sounds like such a sweet idea – and working in a library, I suspect it will appeal strongly. That’s another addition for my TBR sorted, haha!
