I suddenly seem to have a million books to read and absolutely no time to read them in, which is strange considering my complete and total lack of employment, education (although I’m working on that!) or social commitments.
Regardless, here are the books that have come into my house over the last fortnight.
I’ve actually finished reading Advent already, but I should have my review up in the next few days. I’m really grateful to Hodder & Stoughton for sending me a copy to review – it’s a great adventure story complete with magic, monsters and mystery.
Mum in a Million was part of a giveaway run by Orion – it’s finished now, but I contacted the winners this morning. I can’t wait to have a read of this just in time for Mother’s Day next weekend.
I’ve been kind of (read: ‘ridiculously’) skint lately, so I’ve been trying to not buy any books. I’ve been mostly successful, with only one lapse in resolve. In my defence, it was only £2.76 from Amazon and I’ve wanted it for a while. Plus, I can use it for Bex’s Telling Tales Reading Challenge!
The other book, Wither, is the result of my Dad taking pity on me in Tesco 🙂
From the library:
I’ve just this week achieved a victory that has been two years in the making – Lewis signed up for a library card. This achievement of tremendous proportions occurred after a stupidly long length of time of him sneaking books onto my library card and looking innocent when I didn’t have any slots left.
To celebrate, I picked these up for myself, after holding his hand while he talked to the scary librarian.
The Secret Life of Bletchley Park is a non-fiction book after a super-secret code-breaking unit in World War II. They recruited normal civilians and forced them to keep it a secret even from their loved ones.
Brave New World is one of the entires on my Project Fill in the Gaps list, so I couldn’t resist picking it up when I saw a really nice-looking Vintage Classics edition on the shelf.
So that’s me out for this week, but I’m expecting a few more this week – I think I’ll finally have to start piling my TBR books on the floor. It’s been a long time coming but I think the day is finally here! 🙂
