Books In


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!

For review:
Pretty Girl Thirteen by Liz Coley (HarperCollins)
The Last Banquet by Jonathan Grimwood (Canongate)

Butter by Erin Lange (DogEarDiscs)

Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
The Book of Human Skin by Michelle Lovric

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

    I very nearly bought Code Name Verity this week, but the last copy in the bookshop was kind of battered! I'm interested to hear what Butter is like, it's been stuck on my TBR list for ages. Hope you enjoy your books this week!

    Pretty covers indeed – I love the cover of Ketchup Clouds. The US edition of Butter has been on my wishlist for a pretty long time but this is the first time I saw the UK cover – it looks great. Not sure which one I prefer, though.

    Great haul! πŸ™‚

    The Book of Human Skin has been sitting on my tbr pile awhile. I really liked Annabel Pitcher's first book so Ketchup Clouds is definitely on my wishlist, as is Butter which sounds very good too. Enjoy!
