THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END | September Book of the Month

Our September Book Meet is almost upon us! We’re so thrilled that They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera was chosen as our Book of the Month this month, and we can’t wait to chat with y’all next Sunday at Dymocks, Melbourne.

If you haven’t grabbed a free ticket yet, there’s still a few available! Get yours here.


They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

33385229On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day.

The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.

 

 

 


As always, we’ll also be having a Twitter chat the day after our Book Meet to discuss They Both Die at the End! You can find us on Twitter @TheYARoom_MELB.

Looking forward to seeing you either at our Book Meet or joining in the discussion on Twitter! And if you haven’t picked up a copy of this amazing book yet, please do! We’d love to hear your thoughts.

GAP YEAR IN GHOST TOWN | August Book of the Month

Hey friends! August is now well and truly underway, and we’re so excited for our upcoming Book Meet. This month, we’re lucky enough to be joined by the author of Gap Year in Ghost Town, Michael Pryor! As usual, we’ll be meeting in the upstairs section of the cafe in Dymocks from 2.30 – 4pm – it’s bound to be a great afternoon.

If you haven’t already got your free tickets to this event, click here to do so! Our Book Meet is only a week away!

Gap Year in Ghost Town by Michael Pryor

Gap Year in Ghost TownLet’s get this straight – ghosts are everywhere. I can see them. You can’t. And, see them or not, they’re dangerous. This is why my family has hunted ghosts for hundreds of years to protect people like you.

The Marin family are outcasts of the ghost hunting world. They run a two-man operation in inner city Melbourne. Anton has the Ghost-sight, but his father does not.

Rani Cross is supremely skilled in hand-to-hand combat, with enhanced speed and strength thanks to her magical initiation into the Company of the Righteous.

When it comes to ghost-hunting methodology, Anton and Rani don’t see eye to eye – Anton likes to ‘ease their passage’ to the next world, while Rani’s all about the slashing.

But Melbourne is under threat; with a massive spike in violent ghost manifestations, Anton and Rani must find a way to work together to keep supernatural forces at bay.

And what with all the blindingly terrifying brushes with death, Anton must decide if he really wants in on the whole ghost hunting biz anyway.

If you can’t attend our Book Meet, don’t forget to participate in our Twitter chat – #YARoomChat!

Even if you haven’t read Gap Year in Ghost Town you’re still more than welcome to join in. We’ll be talking all about our favourite ghost stories and books set in Melbourne. An hour of bookish fun!

In other news, we’ll be helping to launch Ellie Marney’s latest novel, No Limits, this Friday night!

We were lucky enough to get an eARC of this glorious book, and we can assure you that this is a book that needs to be on your TBR. If you’ve read Every Breath – and even if you haven’t – you’re in for a treat! It’s spectacular, snarky, and so, so Australian.
