Showcase Sunday #27 - The Edge Lit Edition


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:

Yesterday I went to Edge Lit, a science fiction, fantasy and horror convention in Derby. It's a small, one-day event, and a lot of fun! Met and saw some lovely people, and came home with a lot of books, some bought and some freebies. :-) Will do a longer con report soon.

Last Week's Posts:

Book Review - The Rithmatist, by Brandon Sanderson

Guest Post - Author James Everington: Revisiting the Witches


New Goodies:

Edge Lit goodies!

    1. They're so much fun if you can get to one. I'm really lucky that I have EdgeLit so close, usually have to travel much further!

  4. Edge Lit looked so appealing...if they turn it into an annual thing I might make the trip next year. Will be good to see my old stomping grounds! I love the Fox Spirit covers, may be tempted to get one....maybe when I've finally caught up on my short story reading.

    1. Edge Lit is one of the best, really friendly and as relaxed or packed as you want it to be. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a regular thing. It's definitely on for next year anyway. Let me know if you do decide to go to the next one! :-)

      Fox Spirit do have some great covers. I really enjoyed The Nun and Dragon, so I'm looking forward to these!
