Hello and welcome back to Roachie’s Reviews. I was so pleased to be invited back to visit Scholastic in London for their annual showcase event. Last year was brilliant but this year they outdid themselves with the wonderful authors present (I definitely fangirled a lot and lost my bottle to speak to some of my favourite authors!).
So here is a wrap up of the books I came away with and books that are coming soon from Scholastic for which I am most excited.
All links are to the Scholastic website (where available and Hive were they were not) but I do not receive any commission and this post is not sponsored.
In my wonderful goody bag, I received a copy of Naughty Narwhal by Emma Adams and Katy Halford and Star Switch by Alesha Dixon. In addition to these, there were lots of lovely piles of books from which we could take three of our choice. After hearing Leila Rasheed speak so wonderfully about her childhood, I decided to pick up her contribution to the Voices series, Empire’s End: A Roman Story. My other selections were Lost by Eve Ainsworth and Otto Tattercoat and the Forest of Lost Things by Maltida Woods.
There are so many fantastic reads coming from Scholastic in 2020 but there are four that have really piqued my interest.
Out of all the books revealed Good Girls Die First by Kathryn Foxfield is absolutely at the top of my list. Out 2nd July 2020.
Next up is a publication coming very soon, Melinda Salisbury’s Hold Back The Tide. Out 5th March 2020.
I have to admit, I’m not sure I would’ve picked up Most Likely by Sarah Watson if the lovely people at Scholastic hadn’t introduced me to it. But now they have I’m very intrigued!
At last but by no means least, Magpie by Eve Ainsworth. It is the follow on to Lost but the books can be read independently.
I received so many other goodies from Scholastic but my absolute favourites are this Mockingjay badge (which I was surprised to find is metal and not plastic, so it’s really good quality) and a huge The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes bookmark.
I hope you enjoyed my Scholastic Showcase 2020 wrap-up, let me know in the comments below if you have read any of the books featured or have them on your TBR.
Wishing you a bookish week,
