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’ve had a very quiet past two weeks. I didn’t do a Showcase Sunday post last week because none of my books and goodies have arrived until this Monday so there was nothing to showcase. My TBR pile quite scares me so I’m still trying not to buy new books or request review copies (unless it’s something I’m REALLY dying to read) until I’ve read at least half of the review books I already have. I wouldn’t normally do this but I’m going back to uni on Monday, which means that I’ll have less time for blogging. On top of that, I wouldn’t like to fall behind with schedules and blog tours so I’m hoping this will take some pressure off me. 🙂 Anyway, this week I posted:
If you’re UK based and haven’t entered the giveaway, make sure to do so – it was such a great read!
Incoming books and goodies
So the book I was waiting for in the past few
months years, Marian Keyes’ The Mystery of Mercy Close, has finally arrived! SCREAM! It got here two or three days before the actual release day but I haven’t managed to start reading it until Thursday. All I can say is: it’s brilliant. I’ll post my review sometime next week so keep your eyes peeled!
Another thing I got was a pink bag from Pan Macmillan. They had a competition on Twitter where they were giving away about 5 or 10 of these bags and I was one of the winners. I just adore it! It’s bookish, it has a cheerful colour and it’s huge which is ideal for all my uni books and notebooks I’ll be carrying with me from next week. LOVE it!
And of course a massive thank you goes to Penguin and Pan Macmillan for the goodies!
