Incoming!

AKA Showcase Sunday

I imagine this will be my last incoming post before Christmas. Symbiont was a pre-order, but other than that, I'm not allowed to buy books in case someone has bought them for me already. So I just have to buy books for others ;)

I took part in the non-fiction book swap this month and got a very generous three books that have been on my wishlist for ages. So I'm looking forward to making some time for them over the holidays.

Our Endless Numbered Days arrived in a mysterious survival kit tin, which left me confused for a few minutes until my brain kicked in and went of course it's book post! Sometimes I love the weird ways publicists present proofs more than getting the book.


For review:
Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller (Penguin)
Murder by Sarah Pinborough (Jo Fletcher Books)

Gifted:
Brother Mendel's Perfect Horse by Frank Westerman
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell

Bought:
Symbiont by Mira Grant



Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

  3. I hope Symbiont is good, Ellie! I also really need to try Sarah Pinborough. I keep thinking I'd enjoy her book but forget to look for them every time I'm shopping for books :) Enjoy all!

  4. PAGE 100 IN WEIRD THINGS ELLIE. BOOKMARK IT, FOR IT IS I.
    Also, where did my copy of Henrietta Lacks go? I definitely had one at some point. I wonder if it got lost in the move or something... Hmmm. Also, I just bought Mayhem by Sarah Pinborough - is that the first in the series, or have I done things the wrong way round again?

    *runs off like a maniac*
