Showcase Sunday #14



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:

Since I've been so busy the previous weeks, this last week I've been playing catch-up with all my emails, visiting other blogs, updating pages on this blog, and trying to get down to the NaNo writing properly (bit behind!). Have also managed to fit in some video game time again, which feels amazing, stayed up way too late the past few nights reading The Eternity Cure, and spent almost an entire evening talking to my husband about the nature of the Force. All in all, a good week! :-)

Last week's posts:

Book Review - The Other Half of the Sky, edited by Athena Andreadis

Interview with Athena Andreadis, editor of The Other Half of the Sky

Reverse Author Interview! - with Hilary Weisman Graham

Top Ten Books I Read Before I Became A Blogger

Discovering Discworld - (on Fantasy Faction)


New Goodies:

Second hand book find (ex-library copy).

the lookout to build up my collection

Other Stuff:

It's the London Book Fair this week! If you're going, hope you have a fantastic time! :-)

Because of being busy lately, I've not been able to check other blogs as much and have only just found the fantastic Women in SFF month that's running on Fantasy Cafe. There have been some great posts already. Take a look here!


Hope you've all been having a fantastic week too! What have you been up to?
