AKA Showcase Sunday

I think I've managed to receive the thickest and thinnest books of the year in one week! Shooting Victoria may double as a weapon but it sounds like a fascinating history book on the men who tried to kill Queen Victoria. Among Others is incredibly pretty and has won a bunch of prizes. And within that slim volume, the construction of a new motorway causes a man to crack in The A26.

For Review:
Shooting Victoria by Paul Thomas Murphy (Head of Zeus)
Among Others by Jo Walton (Corsair)
The A26 (Gallic Books)
The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter (Harlequin Teen)

Tis the Season by China MiƩville
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

Evil Machines by Terry Jones

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


  1. I was tempted by Will Grayson, Will Grayson but amnaged to resist. Great haul, Ellie! love the cover for Shooting Victoria! Enjoy all your reads! :)

  2. What an awesome haul! I have already added a few of these books to my own TBR list.
    Happy Reading!

  3. Great books!

    Among Others I read a while ago and enjoyed it a lot. Will Grayson (x2) is a book I also want to read.

    Have a good time with these nice new books.

  4. Among Others is supposed to be excellent, can't wait to see what you think of it.

  5. Shooting Victoria sounds like a great idea and it looks so pretty as well. I may just have to stalk it for a while...

    The A26 sounds interesting too, but I'll wait until I see your review :)

  6. Among Others sounds great! And the cover is just gorgeous - I saw it on the publisher's website a few weeks ago. Adore!
