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
This week was a little bit quiet because as I mentioned last week, Bout of Books 5.0 kicked off on Monday and I decided to take some time off and read two of my own books for a change. I was starting to feel quite overwhelmed by all the deadlines, review copies and blog tours and I needed some time off – and it did help! I finished In The Woods by Tana French the other day (you can read my review here) and it was fantastic! Then I re-read Marian Keyes’s Watermelon which is -of course- also brilliant so all in all, it was a great week. 🙂
Once again, no purchased items on the list (I’m still trying to cut back on buying new books and finish my review copies first) which is great! But I was lucky enough to win a copy of The Twitter Diaries on -wait for it- Twitter, which sounds like an interesting read! Just like Pushing the Limits – everyone seems to love it and I’ve read so many fantastic reviews about it in the past few weeks that I can’t wait to read it. Many thanks to Bloomsbury and Mira Ink for the two books!
How was your week and how did you get on with your Bout of Books (or other read-a-thon) goals? Have you read any of these two books? What did you guys get? As always, make sure to leave a link to your own Showcase Sunday post in the linky below and feel free to leave a comment after linking up. Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!
