Showcase Sunday #38

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:

Last week I was hit with the norovirus, so the blog has been a bit quiet this last week. It was horrible (genuinely the most ill I've ever felt!), but thankfully I'm feeling a lot better now. I think I pretty much slept my way through the end of NaNo so I haven't been able to add up my word count for the month, but overall I'm pleased with the month's progress and looking forward to continuing writing in December! :-)

And... I have some exciting news! :-D But I'm going to leave that for a separate post coming straight after this one...

New Goodies:

The Thief's Gamble, by Juliet E. McKenna

A movie from the library:

And the books for my Secret Santa arrived! No pics of these yet though... I don't want to give anything away too soon ;-)


  1. Nice picks! Both look good, love the cover of The Thief's Gamble. :)
    I kind of dread watching the movie, I bet it's super sad :X
    Happy reading and watching!

  2. Ooh, The Thief's Gamble looks really good! I've been wanting to check out Never Let Me Go. I've heard a lot of great things about that movie. I hope you enjoy it!
    Great haul, Vicky! Happy reading :)

  3. I haven't heard of either of this movie or the book you got this week! Hope you enjoy them both!

  4. Oh yuck, I glad you're feeling better. Hope you enjoy you book and movie! :)
