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.
I had another fantastic week book-wise. I met Zarina from Page to Stage Reviews on Wednesday afternoon and she gave me her copy of Jane Fallon’s Skeletons. Zarina was pretty disappointed with it, but I loved both Getting Rid of Matthew and Got You Back so fingers crossed I have better luck with it. Then, the lovely Transworld team sent me a copy of Sharon Bolton’s newest novel, A Dark and Twisted Tide. I’m a huge fan of Sharon’s work (you might remember me raving about the first two Lacey Flint books for WEEKS) so being able to read the fourth one right now and not having to wait another two months or so pretty much made my year. Thanks so much to Alison for the review copy and for making me one happy blogger!
I also got two Claire McGowan books for review from Bookbridgr (Headline’s brand new bookish website – read more about it here). I’m taking part in the official Dead Ground blog tour in April so they were kind enough to send me the first book in the series, as well as The Dead Ground itself. I’ve been meaning to check out Claire’s books for a while now so I’m really looking forward to reading these two.
And last but not least, Fracture landed on my desk yesterday and was a gift from Emma @ Never Judge a Book by Its Cover. I already read and reviewed Fracture two years ago when the American publisher put it on NetGalley, but I loved it so much that I want to read it again some time in the next couple of months. Thank you so much for sending it to me, Emma! 🙂
That’s my book haul for the past two weeks!
