Incoming!

AKA Showcase Sunday

I like to think I was pretty good at Nine Worlds and didn't come home with too many books. Just a couple of freebies (I even gave away one of my goodie bag books). I did buy the Discworld Ankh-Morpork board game though. It's one I've oohed and ahhed over a few times in the past, so when I discovered I hadn't spent all my money in the hotel bar, I had to go get it. This month's purchases have all been from my affiliate payment vouchers; Air was mentioned several times at Nine Worlds so I wanted to pick up a copy. The second book was because I had to make my order up to a tenner ;).


For review:
Gutenberg's Apprentice by Alix Christie (Headline)
Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Hodder)
The Informant by Susan Wilkins (Pan Macmillan)
Assail by Ian C. Esslemont (Transworld)

Freebies:
Dreams and Shadows by C. Robert Cargill
Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Bought:
Air by Geoff Ryman
Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender
The Tarot Reader by Laura Lam

Won:
Timebomb by Scott K. Andrews



Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

  1. Ah yes, the old "I need to round my order up so I must purchase another book".

    I got Half-Blood on bookbridgr too! I am currently reading it and it is brilliant! :)

    I hope you enjoy all of your books and have a fab week! :D

  3. I have yet to check out your Nine Worlds post, wish I was there!
    I am super excited for Red Rising, have to get to it soon. I have had it for a while now so it's about time, too.
    Happy reading!

    1. I don't do these posts every week so this is a month's worth including a con. I haven't had that many books through in the post lately either. Think it's been a quiet period, but honesly don't really need them :)
