I know, I know. It’s wrong day for this sort of post! But I’m busy at the weekend and wanted to say thanks to my ninja swappee before I forget. Thank you Kelly @ Paper Obsessed! First up, I wholly approve of the wrapping paper. Dinosaurs FTW:
And then inside there were DINOSAUR SOCKS! I love them. One of my books was from the depths of my wishlist so I applaud Kelly for having a good look through. This is why we need ninja swaps. I’m looking forward to starting the Incryptid series which is the only one of Seanan McGuire’s (aka Mira Grant) I haven’t tried yet. There was some yummy looking chocolate and speech bubble sticky notes. There was also a note to say that this wasn’t everything and I would have an extra little treat arrive separately. Exciting!
If you missed out this time, there are three ninja book swaps each year (Valentine’s, Summer and Halloween). Follow @NinjaBookSwap to keep up-to-date.
I’ve been trying hard not to buy books in October what with the swapping and my upcoming birthday. I did have a little slip up as I wanted Horrorstör before Halloween. I think the comic is from a Kickstarter I pledged to ages ago and forgot all about. It looks pretty suitable for Halloween reading too though.
I’m meant to be winding down on review books for the year but a few still crept in. After all the excitement of twin finding on Twitter, I really wanted in on The Fire Sermon action. For some reason I thought it was epic fantasy but I was wrong (although it could be epic) and it’s post-apocalyptic fantasy by the sounds of it. Also looking forward to finishing off the Magicians trilogy.
