Hello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. 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.
This week on Books, Biscuits, and Tea
I finally managed to make some progress with my review pile thanks to the Review Copy Cleanup and the Olympic Readathon! I completed my Olympic Readathon goal on Friday (1300 pages) and I’ve no more unwritten reviews either. Yippeee! 🙂
♦ On Monday I reviewed Torn by David Massey (5/5)
♦ On Wednesday David Massey stopped by my blog for a guest post
♦ On Thursday I reviewed Call Down Thunder by Daniel Finn (4/5)
♦ On Friday I reviewed Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (5/5)
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr (for review)
The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso (for review)
Carnage by Maxime Chattam (for review)
The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie (purchased)
Under the Duvet by Marian Keyes (purchased)
Lots of fantastic titles this week! How to Save a Life has been on my wishlist for ages so I was literally jumping up and down with joy when I got it the other day! And the same thing applies to Marian’s Under the Duvet as well – funnily enough, I already read the ‘sequel’, Further Under the Duvet early last year but UTD was impossible to track down at the time so… I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. Many thanks to Usborne and Gallic Books for the review copies!
What did you get this week? How’s everyone doing read-a-thon wise? 🙂
