I've had a bit of blogging apathy the past two weeks so I couldn't be bothered doing an incoming post last Sunday. Which actually makes my little book buying binge less obvious! My slump was starting to interfere with reading too but a couple of days of playing a plague simulation game on my iPhone sorted me right out and I've had my nose stuck in books all weekend. Here's hoping the mojo is back to stay!
So, obviously very excited to have the new Jojo Moyes this week! Skulk was a pre-order (I seem to have a few of those coming my way in the next few weeks, they're like buses) it has something to do with foxes. A few weeks ago I was disappointed that no one was doing Books Are My Bag round here but the local WHSmith gave me a bag when I bought Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty retelling) and Antigoddess (something to do with Apollo and a Cassandra), so they're back to being my favourite local bookshop (even if they are a newsagents, they have the best selection).
I had a little rummage in The Works as a pick me up too. They have a whole load of Thursday Next books in which you must read and I picked up the latest in the series. I wasn't all that impressed with the first Hollows book but it was a series that was recommended, so at this price I will give it another go...three books seem long enough to get going. I am aware I also bought the second book as an ebook but I think I am more inclined to read paper.
