Incoming!

AKA Showcase Sunday

Yesterday I was feeling a bit glum as lots of other bloggers were announcing exciting arrivals in the post on Twitter (some of which I'm hoping to get too) and all my post contained was a letter about my pension. Boo! Still, I did get some great books this week (and lovely Lynsey realised she'd forgotten about me and sent me The War of the Wives) so I can't complain too much. I have managed to get through a few NetGalleys as part of Review Copy Cleanup so I didn't even feel all that guilty clicking that READ NOW button on Shadows. Seriously excited by this one...I mean do you remember the end of Ashes?

I also bought a lovely bracelet from Etsy made from old typewriter keys. Birgit has a discount code on her blog, so to find out more info I shall direct you to The Book Garden.

  3. Aww, I would be depressed if I had a letter about my pension too! :) Great book haul, and I don't blame you for clicking on Shadows. The end in Ashes was such a cliffhanger! Enjoy all your reads and your beautiful bracelet, Ellie!
