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)

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

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

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

  2. Hmm, I actually haven't heard of any of these, I'll have to look out for your reviews.

  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!

  4. I haven't read any of these, do love pics of book post though. Been so very long since I had a big drop through the letterbox like that, jealous!


    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 :)
