Showcase Sunday #8



Inspired by Celine from Nyx Book Reviews, I've decided to combine several weekly wrap-up memes into one post. Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea. Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga's Reviews, and Sunday Post is hosted at Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Letterbox Love is a special British book-haul meme hosted by Lindsey at Narratively Speaking.


Last Week on the Blog:

Thanks to Harlequin, NetGalley, and Anachron Press for review copies, and to Project Gutenberg for the free book (Carnacki)!

Other Stuff:

Emma Newman, author of Between Two Thorns, has written a short story set in the Split Worlds using one of my prompts! You can read it here.

Why not visit her blog and suggest a prompt of your own? If she likes it, she may use it in a story!

    1. I think the characters were the really big strength of the book for me too, though I did also love the world and the feel of the magic. :-)

  12. Urban Occult has a very cool cover. I'll have to check that one out! The Eternity Cure turned out to be a strange one for me. I liked it, but I didn't love it nearly as much as the first. Hope you enjoy it though! :)
