Showcase Sunday #22

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:

Sunshine!  :-D I've done a big spring clean, tidied up my office, and put a jug of yellow flowers on the desk. Now it really feels like summer!

Last week's posts:

Book Review - Any Other Name, by Emma Newman

Top Ten Books That Feature Travelling

Richard and Judy Book Club Reading Challenge - Sign Up


New Goodies:

The first books for the Richard & Judy Book Club Challenge (hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea), arrived for me to pick up at the library. Yay! Looking forward to this challenge. :-)



by Simon Mawer


How has your week been? Doing anything fun in the sun? :-)

  1. Oh yay! :) I actually don't have the Simon Mawer book yet - but since I'm trying to save up some money, I might have to try and borrow it.
    Looking forward to hearing what you think :)

    1. My library seems to have all the Rich&Judy reads, which is quite lucky :-) Really looking forward to the Mawer one actually, just in the mood for that kind of story I think!

    1. Thanks Jessie. :-) I found them through the Rich&Judy book club, but Alex Woods was the only one I was actually aware of before that. Looking forward to seeing what they're like!

  6. Nice book haul. We are still waiting for the sun and heat. It is cold and rainy again today. The only advantage of the weather is that it makes great reading time. Come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

    1. Aww, hope you get some sun soon! You're right about the reading weather though, I love reading while it's raining and pattering against the windows, but you're warm and cosy inside. :-)

  8. These look interesting and different. I always love seeing books that I hadn't heard of before. The covers are really different and interesting.
