Books In


AKA Showcase Sunday

It’s glorious weather here at the moment. Have actually been sat on the beach in shorts and vest top today. This is reward for putting up with all that stormy weather over winter, I’m sure.

Where have all these books come from?! Slightly annoyingly, most the unsolicited ones sound like things I quite fancy reading. Maybe I can give up sleep? I’m so excited to have gotten copies of Goose and the new Rainbow Rowell. SQUEE! I did have a bit of snuffle round NetGalley last week too.

I also got my delayed Ninja Book Swap parcel (well it’s a replacement for my naughty AWOL one, Bex and Hanna are the best). I got Every Day, The Dead Girls Detective Agency (I want to put an apostrophe in there somewhere) and Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind and some purple and pink wool.

For review:
Goose by Dawn O’Porter (Hot Key Books)
Landline by Rainbow Rowell (Orion)
The Crimson Ribbon by Katherine Clements (Headline)
Nagasaki by Γ‰ric Faye (Gallic Books)
The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin (Headline)
Gone Are the Leaves by Anne Donovan (Canongate)
The Flavours of Love by Dorothy Koomson (Quercus)
The Way Back Home by Freya North (HarperCollins)
Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead (Blue Door)
Beautiful Day by Kate Anthony (Penguin)
Heartman by M.P. Wright (Black & White Publishing)

      I think it's more that she's just been "discovered" and her backlist titles are everywhere too at the moment.

      I wish I had time for all of these, but some are going to end up on the forgotten pile I'm sure πŸ™

    On the one hand, I do like getting books in the mail. But on the other hand, that is too many review copies for me. Best of luck. πŸ˜‰

      I've never felt under any pressure to review unsolicited copies – 9 of these I didn't ask for. I try and pass them on to book group or do giveaways if I never get round to them πŸ™‚
