OMG, so many books. Where are they all coming from?! I didn’t do an incoming post in August and admittedly this is 6 weeks worth but it doesn’t include the bookshop crawl and Illumicrate books that I did actually blog about last month. I’m rubbish at book buying bans so I really need to speed up my reading… and we’ve got a new puppy arriving in two weeks. Maybe she will eat half my books and therefore help me cull them!
I was super reserved at Nine Worlds and only bought one book, The Beauty by Aliya Whiteley. I had wanted to buy it direct from Unsung Stories but didn’t realise the publisher stands weren’t in the expo on the Sunday. So, sorry I didn’t get to say hi. I also treated myself to quite a few books from Waterstones, forgetting I had loads of book buying opportunities coming up.
I’ve read some of these already so please do check out my reviews of the latest Spinster Club book, The Deviants, A Little Knowledge and the Harry Potter script book. Please let me know what you’ve loved and what you’re looking forward to out of these.
I was also sent the Discworld colouring book by Gollancz with the promise I would colour and share a page. You might have seen my progress on Instagram already but here it is again. I am definitely going to do more of this book. There’s a good range of repeating patterns, simpler illustrations, favourite characters and plenty of dragons.
