Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.
Hello everyone and happy April! Where did the past three months go?! Christmas feels like two weeks ago – I can’t believe it’s spring already. How are you all? Any exciting plans for the bank holiday weekend?
I was hoping to go away for a couple of days but apparently, the trains aren’t running due to some engineering works, and the weather turned out to be pretty miserable too, so I decided to dedicate this weekend to blogging and reading instead. (The next best thing, really.)
In other, more exciting news, Books, Biscuits and Tea had a makeover last weekend! I’ve been thinking about changing my blog design for a while and I decided not to wait any longer. It’s a massive change from my blog’s previous look but I’m quite pleased with this minimalistic design! I still have a couple of things left to tweak and I’ll need to go through all my previous posts and make sure they are formatted in the same way, but I was too excited to wait with the launch! What do you guys think?
As for books, I got two in the past two weeks. Beth from The Reader’s Corner had a giveaway for a signed copy of Gayle Forman’s I Was Here and I won! Thanks so much, Beth. (Also, this is by far the prettiest cover I’ve seen for this book. Love it!)
The Museum of Things Left Behind arrived yesterday, and is our fourth book of the month for the Curtis Brown Book Group. To be honest, I haven’t heard anything about this book before and I have no idea what to expect, but I’ll keep you posted. Many thanks to Curtis Brown and 4th Estate Books for the review copy!
What books did you get this week? Have you read either of these two yet?
