Hi everyone! I’m really trying to keep my book-buying under some kind of control but I don’t think it’s going so well…I just keep ending up with new books!
Longing to escape his island home, a boy named Hodaka runs away during his first summer of high school to find a new life in Tokyo. As rain falls for days on end and Hodaka struggles to adjust, he meets a girl named Hina who holds a mysterious power: With a single prayer, she can part the clouds and bring back the sun. But her power comes at a price, and as the weather spirals further and further out of control, they must choose what future they truly want for themselves.
Written concurrently with production of the 2019 film Weathering With You, this novel comes straight from director Makoto Shinkai, the mind behind 2016’s hit your name.!
I stumbled across this book in Waterstones Piccadilly, and I adored the movie when I saw it in January. It matches my copy of the light novel of Your Name, and I didn’t hesitate to pick it up!
It is a year after the action of One of Us Is Lying, and someone has started playing a game of Truth or Dare.
But this is no ordinary Truth or Dare. This game is lethal. Choosing the truth may reveal your darkest secrets, accepting the dare could be dangerous, even deadly.
The teenagers of Bayview must work together once again to find the culprit, before it’s too late . . .
My lovely friend Alex asked me if I wanted to read this with her this week. I said yes, as we’re attending a signing for Karen m McManus in a few weeks and I want to get this one signed! I didn’t realise I hadn’t bought it yet, so I picked it up on Friday.
What did you buy this week?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
