Today I came home to some wonderful book post kindly sent to be by lovely people at Walker Books. All three titles look amazing and I can’t wait to read them.
Landscape with Invisible Hand by M.T. Anderson
A sharply wrought satire of art, truth, and colonization, from the award-winning author of Feed.
We were all surprised when the vuvv landed the first time. We were just glad they weren’t invading. We couldn’t believe our luck when they offered us their tech and invited us to be part of their Interspecies Co-Prosperity Alliance.
Several years on, jobs are scarce due to the rise of alien tech and there’s no money for food, clean water, or the vuvv’s miraculous medicine. Adam and his girlfriend, Chloe, must get creative to survive. Since the vuvv crave “classic” Earth culture, recording 1950’s-style dates for them to view seems like a brilliant idea.
But it’s hard for Adam and Chloe to murmur sweet nothings when they hate each other more with every episode. Soon enough, Adam must decide how far he’s willing to go – and what he’s willing to sacrifice.

Flying Tips For Flightless Birds by Kelly Mccaughrain
Life is a Circus. Don’t miss the Show.
Friendship, romance and accepting who you are… that’s a lot for two confused clowns to juggle.
Twins Finch and Birdie Franconi are stars of the flying trapeze. But when Birdie suffers a terrifying accident, Finch must team up with the geeky new kid, Hector Hazard, to form an all-boys double act and save the family circus school.
Can clowning around in the ring help them deal with real life – and face up to how they feel – outside the spotlight?
With the offbeat charm and feel-good glow of an indie rom-com, Kelly McCaughrain’s debut novel explores themes of sexuality and identity with a light and funny touch.
