Incoming!

I have already covered the books I got on the London Bookshop Crawl, but I did have a few new ones before then which are included here. We're house hunting at the moment so I'm aware I will have to move all my books at some point, so I'm trying not too add too much to the shelves. Here's hoping we can find somewhere compatible with my bookshelves!

I'm very excited to have False Hearts and The Winner's Kiss in my paws this week. I also grabbed the ebooks of Rainbow Rowell's and Juno Dawson's World Book Day novellas as I'm pretty sure they'll be perfect bus reading. I've already read Holly Bourne's latest and Peirene's The Man I Became so you can read my thoughts on the blog already.

I also got another Illumicrate this month. I think the contents were in general better but the book was Truthwitch which I already have, which has kind of put me off continuing. I would prefer it to be slightly less known authors so as to discover something new, and I would be more accepting of sometimes getting a duplicate. But when it's a book that had a lot of marketing push prior to publication, it seems that a lot of people would have it already... Anyway, I'm considering giving away my box so watch this space.

  2. I just picked up The Art of Being Normal too - darn 2 for £7 offer at Tesco, haha - so I hope for both our sakes that the hype turns out to be well deserved! It sounds fantastic. :)
