Incoming!

AKA In My Mailbox

At some point, I will win the lottery so I actually have the time to read all these books. I sort of made myself a deal at the beginning of the year to buy the Waterstones 11 books from Waterstones stores but have so far received 3 for review. I thought I had better go buy some books from them as they are the only proper bookshops we have round here. They have improved somewhat since HMV sold them and they are starting to feel more like bookshops again.



Waterstones
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
The Land of Decoration - Grace McCleen
Care of Wooden Floors - Will Wiles

For Review
The Library Book

  1. I know this makes me a bit shallow, but the cover the The City's Son makes me want to read it for a reason that is not literary. ;-P

  2. I hadn't heard of many of those but you sure had a great book week. The Library Book sounds interesting, I think I may have to get that one. Though I may wait until after your review.

  3. Yay, you've been seduced by The City's Son too! ;))) Will be great to compare the reviews, the only pity is that the book doesn't come out until September :( Enjoy all your reads, Ellie!

  4. Yay, the NetGalley curse is still going strong! I now try to keep it to no more than five eGalleys from there, and so far I'm doing fine, but who knows when the tides will turn?
    Oh and "The Library Book" seems to be right up my alley too!
