Obviously I read Empire of Storms as soon as it arrived and I loved it. I’ve been holding off reviewing it as it seems to be one of those series that is super sensitive to spoilers but I’ll probably write a few words about it this week. I also got the colouring book although on first inspection it’s not as good as some of the others I have, no repeating patterns, no map (I really wanted that) and not a lot of variation in the colouring pages.

The Smoker Hunter sounds like a Victorian Indiana Jones style adventure plus it has an Ellie as the protagonist and is released on my birthday so I thought I’d give it a go!

I’ve had some pretty great unsolicited titles recently (which is kind of the reason I don’t try harder to stop them coming). Though to be fair, I might have asked for them in a sleep deprived haze and forgotten about it. I did get two copies of Behind Her Eyes so I’ll be giving one away, check back tomorrow to enter. I loved Sarah’s last book, 13 Minutes and I’m looking forward to reading this one.
