AKA Showcase Sunday

I'm trying not to buy books at the moment until I've read some of the ones I've bought recently. I kept walking past the Buried Giant display in Waterstones' window thinking I really must read the last special edition I bought from there first. Then I was feeling a bit down one day and I came out of work to find my boyfriend clutching a copy for me. He's the best!

I also got a box from My Geek Box this month but it was a bit disappointing. We might try one from somewhere else next month but I do fear that if you're not into Marvel you're screwed. Josh did get a Ghostbusters t-shirt out of it, so it wasn't a complete loss. We made our DIY Wolverine Munny completely wonky too, so he has a bit of charm.

I'm raising money for the Alzheimer's Society. Please give a few pounds if you can. Thank you!

For review:
The Good Girl by Fiona Neill (Penguin)
Uprooted by Naomi Novik (Tor)
The Double Shadow by Sally Gardner (Orion)
The Living and the Dead in Winsford by HÃ¥kan Nesser (Mantle)

The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


  1. I saw your post about The Buried Giant the other day - it's so nice of him. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Nice assortment of books...The Double Shadow and The Good Girl both caught my to find out more about them.

  3. I've never read Naomi Novik but Uprooted sounds very tempting, Ellie. Yay for boyfriends understanding the importance of bookish gifts!


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
