Patrick Ness is my favourite author. Every time he publishes a new book I rush out and get it and try to find a quiet place to sit to enjoy it. I fell in love with his writing when I first read The Knife of Never Letting Go and then devoured the rest of the series. The thing I love the most about Patrick Ness’ writing is that he isn’t afraid to push boundaries and try something new. His latest book, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, promises to be another highly original and memorable story. I can’t wait to read it! The only problem with reading it is that I then have to wait another year or so to read another new Patrick Ness book. Oh the dilemma!
Check out the blurb and cover for The Rest of Us Just Live Here below:
Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully asks what if you weren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you were like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend might just be the God of mountain lions.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here is released on August 27 by Walker Books Australia.
