Books Acquired This Week
I found some great books this week! Glimpse is a book that I was approved for on NetGalley - the day after they had archived it. I left my address in the notes and explained why I couldn't review and they sent me a review copy, which I was really surprised by.
I'm happily swapping on ReadItSwapIt still and if you're in the UK you should definitely join me - I grabbed myself a copy of Going Vintage there and I'm waiting on two others.
Waterstones has some new books in this week - The Bunker Diary and Never Ending, I grabbed those immediately. Never Ending is signed!
I love visiting my local pound shop - you'd be amazed where books appear. I got both Silverhorse and Gullstruck Island at the bottom for £1 each (about $1.70). Brand new!
I got a copy of the UK edition of Teardrop, which is my favourite of the Teardrop covers. It's a plain silver cover - with a teardrop on it.
And I received a review request for THIS. I was so excited when I read about it because it has 350 STICKERS. I know it's going to be at least a week before I write a review of this as I'll be too busy playing with it.
Books Read This Week (21st - 27th)
Bit of a weird week this week as I never really planned to read these books, it just sort of happened.
I was planning for a Strange Chemistry week but I only got The Assassin's Curse and Katya's World read and reviewed out of the four I had planned. Assassin's Curse was amazing, I'm really looking forward to the sequel. Katya's World I enjoyed but I have mixed feelings towards. I've ordered both of their sequels.
Beware The Wild was really good. It's a really creepy, unique read. If you're a Francis Hardinge fan I highly recommend it. Wintergirls will stick with me, I couldn't stop reading. I'm going to have to find everything Laurie has written and eat it all now.
Dancing To This Week
I've had this stuck in my head ALL WEEK I swear.
And finally... I'm going down to London on Monday so I'll be AWOL all week. I may be on Twitter but I'm restricted to my iPod. Posts are scheduled though! I'm planning to visit many bookshops and bring back as many books as I can.
(I heard that there's a Waterstones that has EIGHT FLOORS of books too)
