This week has been my 22nd birthday week, and so naturally resulted in a lot of books and book-related presents. There’s nothing quite as heart-wrenching as watching a 6″3, bearded, tattooed, sighing man traipsing round after a happy 5″4 fairy (well, the pink hair and a cream lacy dress made one little girl tell me I looked like one anyway) with a resigned expression and huge bags of books.
Anyway this is the resulting damage –
I was given Chances as one of those ‘we know you read stuff, but we don’t, so here’s a random book’ gifts. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some really great books I’ve ended up loving… but I don’t think this will be one of them.
Not only did Sheffield library actually manage to have the first in a series for a change, they also had the second and, get this… they were right next to each other. What’s next? Books arranged by alphabetical order!?
This is Black Swan Rising. It was sent to me by Transworld Publishers who very nicely offer to send another book when you’ve sent a link to them with the review of this one.
So that’s that. I finally finished Ill Met By Moonlight (review here) which has been taking me ages so I can’t wait to get started on this lot!
