The Sunday Post (#36) and Showcase Sunday (#22)
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.
On the blog
Review: The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Review: Friendship by Emily Gould
Review: The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris
Added to my shelves
I'm a huge Parks and Recreation fan, so I was really excited to get this amazing guide to Pawnee by Leslie Knope from Ebury.
We had a presentation by Transworld at work, and I nabbed a few books from them:
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes
Wake by Anna Hope
The Spinning Heart by Donal Ryan
The Thing About December by Donal Ryan (it chucked it down with rain on the way back from our visit, so my copy of this got a little spoilt, boo)
And finally, after attending Orion's women's fiction party, I got a couple of proofs through from the publisher:
Her by Harriet Lane (looks super creepy and very interesting)
The Fair Fight by Anna Freeman (about female fighters in Bristol)
What did you add to your shelves?
