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.
I'm so pleased with myself this week, as not only did I manage to beat Camp NaNo (yay!), I also went to London and managed to come home with only one book! Is that good willpower or what? Hope everyone else had a lovely week. Have you signed up for Bout of Books yet? I'm really looking forward to it!
Last week's posts:
Book Review - The Eternity Cure, by Julie Kagawa
Book Review - Zenn Scarlett, by Christian Schoon
Book Reviews - Myths and Legends series: Jason and the Argonauts, and Dragonslayers
The Grey Side of the Force (Star Wars Day post)
Bout of Books 7.0 Sign Up
Bought in London:
Sea of Poppies, by Amitav Ghosh
Invocation, by Jo L. Walton
(not to be confused with Jo Walton!)
Free on kindle at the time.
The Mermaid of Brooklyn, by Amy Shearn
59p on kindle.
A Load of Old Bones, by Suzette Hill
Kindle daily deal (99p) - I thought this one looked really fun!
Special delivery from Emma's Tea Lair:
This is a handwritten short story from Emma Newman.
The story is based on one of my prompts, and Emma had
promised to handwrite and send the story to anyone whose
prompt she used! Look, she even sealed it with sparkly wax
and stamped it with a faery seal. How awesome is that? :-)
The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern. This is the first time I'll have joined in with the FF Book Club, and it looks really fun! I'm also about 60 pages into the book and would really recommend it so far. So if you fancy joining in (on the Fantasy Faction forums), it's still not too late!
- Bout of Books 7.0 is nearly here! Squee!
- Do you love Steampunk? Wondering what it is and what all the fuss is about? Want to know more? Hannah at Once Upon a Time is going to be running a Steampunk event this summer. Hop on over if you're interested in finding out more, or if you'd like to help out! :-)
Hope everyone's had a lovely sunny week!
