Incoming: All Souls Edition

AKA Showcase Sunday

Friday night I went to the pre-launch party for The Book of Life, the final instalment in Deborah Harkness' All Souls trilogy. The event was sponsored by Glamour magazine so we got a very generous goodie bag, which of course included a hot off the press copy of The Book of Life (reading already) as well as a stay up all night reading kit and other bits and bobs. There was also a raffle at the event and I won a lovely bracelet from Nola Bijoux.


I also bought a fair few books this week. I needed Fairyland for book group and Say My Name was on back order, but then I accidentally bought some stuff from The Works. You know how easily that happens... I also won Bird from Uncorked Thoughts via her Mental Health Awareness Month.


For review:
The Books of Life by Deborah Harkness (Headline)
Cop Town by Karin Slaughter (Random House)

Won:
Bird by Crystal Chan

Bought:
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Boat of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
Say Her Name by James Dawson
Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi



Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

  2. I love the goodies from The Book of Life launch, Ellie! SO pretty! And yes I know how it happens with The Works. You tripped and bought something :))) I used to do it all the time.

  4. Oh wow! What an amazing goodie bag! The bracelet is gorgeous! I've got A Discovery of Witches sitting on my bookcase, but I still haven't read it yet. I'll definitely need to since everyone seems to love the series.
    It's so hard to resist buying books in The Works! Every time I go in I always leave with books.
    Great haul, Ellie! Happy reading :)
