Incoming!

AKA Showcase Sunday

I think these weekly memes are the equivalent to food diaries for book addicts; I always think I've had a pretty good week until I sit down to tally up what books have come in... There's always more than I realised! Being off work last week means I have read four of these already so they don't count! ;)



For Review:
The Explorer by James Smythe (Harper Voyager)
The Shifting Price of Prey by Suzanne McLeod (Gollancz)
Monkeys with Typewriters by Scarlett Thomas (Canongate)
Broken by A.E. Rought (Strange Chemistry)

Bought:
The Cold Kiss of Death by Suzanne McLeod
The Bitter Seed of Magic by Suzanne McLeod
More Tea, Jesus? by James Lark

Freebies:
All That Mullarkey by Sue Moorcroft




Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

    1. Yes! Just great to get addicted to a series again...though there's only 4 books so far so I need to encourage her to write faster ;)

  6. More Tea, Jesus intrigued me just by the title and after reading the blurb I've scared the dog by laughing out loud. Sounds like such a funny book definitely looking forward to the review! Enjoy your new books! Four books read this week? Phew you read fast, I need to get a move on! :)

  8. *Gasp* a new Scarlett Thomas book! I still can't decide whether I really liked The End of Mr. Y or that it was not for me... I so need to read another book by this author!

    With all these books coming in (btw, love the cover of The Explorer), are you still having a hard time deciding what to read? ;-)

    1. I had read most of these by the time I started "Me Month"! I think my problem is too many books. I normally go to the review pile first unless I'm hankering after something in particular, and that's around 10-20 to choose from. Now I have 500+ to choose from with my personal TBR!
