The Sunday Post (#30) and Showcase Sunday (#16)
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren. They're a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, highlight our newest books and see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, or bought.
Book of the month: November 2013
Review: Just In Case by Meg Rosoff
My week in books (#14) - scary monsters and literary-inspired clothing
Added to my shelves
It was another week of getting stuff from publishers, which I'm still trying to sort through. Among the books I got was How to be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis, which is about the things we took from the literary heroines we read about when we were younger. I got it from one of my new publishing contacts, who says she's giving it to everyone she knows because it's so great. I'm only a few chapters in, but I'm inclined to agree.
My office is also having a clear out, so I grabbed two books quickly on Friday evening, proofs of The White Princess by Philippa Gregory and Teardrop by Lauren Kate. I'm not sure I actually want to read the latter, so if anyone UK-based wants it let me know, I'm happy to pay the postage.
What have you been up to?
