AKA Showcase Sunday
A couple of lovely covers this week. The Last Banquet has a fanastic bewigged tiger gracing its cover and Pretty Girl Thirteen is not much to look at on the screen but it has a very pretty spot varnish pattern on in person. I may have made a tiny order with The Book People… I actually forgot all about them and was feeling very smug and restrained until I noticed them perched on the edge of the bookcase. And thanks to Dan for sending me his spare copy of Butter!
Pretty Girl Thirteen by Liz Coley (HarperCollins)
