AKA Showcase Sunday

The gravitational forces of The Works pulled me inside yesterday. They have lots of new stock and have changed the 3 for Β£5 offer to 2 for Β£3! So I carefully selected two books only instead of leaving with armfuls of series I’ll never get round to reading… I also spied The Great British Tuck Shop and an audiobook of Grimm Tales. I have been half way through the hardback for months now and I was enjoying it but novels seem to be taking over. I like the idea of them being read to me, so hopefully I’ll pick up where I left off and finish aurally.

I don’t know why I went into WH Smith…I had been doing the charity shop rounds looking for Point Horror (no luck). Maybe I didn’t want it to feel left out. I did a little squee when I saw one of their half price books was The 5th Wave Also picked up Going Vintage and a fab Star Wars activity book (why yes, it is for me and not a small child).

So, the supporting of my local high street done, I also had a few purchases arrive by post. The pesky Book People had free delivery last weekend so bought Scarlet, which I may hold off reading until the final book is out, and A Hunger Like No Other. I keep picking up Kresley Cole books here and there and thought it was about time I got the first book in the series so I can work out if I like them or not. (UPDATE: I went to add this to my TBR on Goodreads and it was already there, so maybe I have 2 copies now…) Everyone seemed to think Angelmaker should have won the Clarke Award this year and it has clockwork bees, so it was about time I got a copy…
