AKA Showcase Sunday

I may not have made it to any blogger events this week but I did get masses of lovely post. When I started blogging, I never in a million worlds would have thought I would get advance copies of my favourite authors’ books. I was tempted to do a vlog this week just to fully express my joy at receiving Kelley Armstrong’s new book!!! It’s the start of a new series and I can’t wait to dive in.

A couple of books this week that will count towards my Translation Challenge (I know, I’ve been slacking somewhat), What Lot’s Wife Saw sounds like a fantastic post-apocalyptic yarn and Harlequin’s Costume is a tale of Russian intrigue set in 1871.

For review:
The Scarlet Thief by Paul Fraser Collard (Headline)
Harlequin’s Costume Leonid Yuzefovich (Glagoslav)
Ink by Amanda Sun (MIRA Ink)
The Desert of Souls by Howard Andrew Jones (Head of Zeus)
Omens by Kelley Armstrong (Sphere)
The Humans by Matt Haig (Canongate)
What Lot’s Wife Saw by Ioanna Bourazopoulou (Black & White)
Shift by Hugh Howey (Century)
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (Bloomsbury)
Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach (Vintage)

The Rising by Kelley Armstrong

Eek, I had better get reading! I also received a non-book-shaped parcel from HarperCollins this week, promoting The Shining Girls:

Remember these? The original 3D viewing experience. It’s a bit tricky taking photos of the insides, but I think the double-exposure, blurry redness gives it a certain atmosphere.
