AKA Showcase Sunday

There was NO POST yesterday which means no book-shaped parcels for three whole days as it’s a bank holiday weekend. How will I cope? I had better just read some of the 100s I own already, hadn’t I? Before the postal system failed me, I did receive a few books, mostly bought but one surprise one for review, Memory of the Abyss from Quercus. Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig was a pre-order for the fabulous Joey HiFi cover (I hear the book is quite good too). I also received a replacement debit card that I had to check was working before I cut up the old one…and ended up buying one of the books from The Readers Summer Book Club line-up, Half Blood Blues.

The latest Sookie book was also out this week so picked that up and I’ve already read and reviewed. It’s better than the last one if you’re wondering. I probably wouldn’t have read Never Mind but Simon mentioned it on The Readers podcast and then it appeared as a Kindle daily deal (but shhhh, don’t tell him that) so I will give it a go…some day. Finally, Kingdom actually arrived in my inbox the week before but I forgot. As Hannah is organising the blog tour I promised to give it a mention this week.
