AKA Showcase Sunday

After last week's splurge, I'm kinda happy to have a small pile of paper books this week. Both were ones I'd decided not to ask for because I was trying to be restrained...and then they turned up anyway. I thought The River of No Return was going to be a bit long but, whilst the book is large, the font size is also large so I might be OK with it...I like the sound of it anyway. Pretty cover AND time travel FTW.

Very sadly, the author of The Silent Wife died recently. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a huge book this summer though, the time is definitely right for psychological thrillers.

For review:
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison (Headline)
The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway (Penguin)
Acid by Emma Pass (Random House)
Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
True Blood Volume 1: All Together Now (Diamond Comics)

Seoul Survivors by Naomi Foyle

How to Talk to Girls at Parties by Neil Gaiman

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


  1. The River of no Returning looks so bloody good, I must get it soon!

    Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

  2. Hanna gifted me a copy of Acid this week (<3) I read the first page or two and it looks to be a good read!

  3. Time Travel always gets my vote as well!
    Sometimes a smaller haul helps balance the amount we need to read. Acid looks great as well. :-)

  4. I too LOVE Time travel books, I'm really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

    And I heard about the author of The Silent Wife :( I was very sad that they won't get to see their book puublished and selling, but I hope it sells well

    Have a lovely Sunday Ellie :)

  6. Ooh, The Silent Wife sounds interesting. I'll have to tell my mom to watch out for that one it sounds like something she would want to read. It looks like you've got some great books. Happy Reading!

  7. Tumble & Fall! Ahhh I am so jealous of you :). That book sounds so amazing. xx

  8. The River of No Return is on my wish list! :D
