AKA Showcase Sunday

I don’t think I was doing very well with the understanding of words yesterday as I read my pile of books from HarperCollins as “adult fiction” when they are actually new adult, a genre marketing category I have mostly managed to avoid so far. During my Buffy re-watch I have been thinking that is exactly what new adult should be – covers all the important things about the first steps of independence. I am a bit wary of all the emphasis on the sexy on these NA titles but I may read a few pages to see if they are just leading me on.

In other news I accidentally won a book again. I think it must have been a retweet any review deal as I had retweeted one earlier in the day because it sounded interesting. Next thing I know, I’ve won a copy. Otherwise I’ve done really well this week and not bought or requested any books.

For review:
The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerksi (HarperCollins)
Wait For You by J Lynn (HarperCollins)
Rule by Jay Crownover (HarperCollins)

Won:
The Detainee by Peter Liney

Library Loot:


OK I did end up in the library to ease the no book buying pain. I went to pick up Night School: Legacy (which I have already read) and ended up with a few extras. At least these ones I can take back when I realise I’m not going to get to them. The Greenes are for Greene for Gran in memory of Granny Savidge.

Night School: Legacy by C.J. Daugherty
The Tenth Man by Graham Greene
Stamboul Train by Graham Greene
New Model Army by Adam Roberts
Lavinia by Ursula Le Guin
