You know you have too many books when you have a TBR shelf that spans the entire length of a room, and you still have to make a separate pile for the ones that won’t fit on.
That said, I’ve had the awesome week to end all awesome weeks. Insurgent AND Bitterblue in the same week! I swear I squealed less on my birthdays as a child. It’s times like this when I feel so, so lucky to be a book blogger – two books that I’ve been desperate to read and aren’t even out yet, and they both roll up on my doorstep with a nice note from the publishers. I have to admit, I feel pretty fortunate right now. The release date for both is May 1st, so I have no idea which to read first!
For some reason I seem to have received a lot of swap requests on ReaditSwapit lately, but that suits me just fine 🙂 This week I swapped for The Wind-up Girl, Battle Royale (which I’ve been after for ages), Shopaholic & Baby and The Chocolate Frog-Frame Up, sent by a swapper who turned out to be a fellow book blogger!
I also received a R.A.K. from a lovely book blogger, Dani at Refracted Light Reviews. Bless her and her sending of Shatter Me! I was desperate to read it when it first came out but couldn’t afford it, so now I’m more than a little excited.
Finally I may have gone on a little charity shop binge yesterday. I got a great haul, even if it did mean rifling through my boyfriend’s pockets for change every few minutes 🙂
I’m not normally a fan of movie covers, but I’ve wanted to read Atonement for a while now and this one was only £1, so I decided I could live with the photo of That Woman.
I’m sure most people have heard of Before I Go To Sleep, but I couldn’t resist picking up a copy for £2. I haven’t read a bad review of it yet and it’s still £3.73 in ASDA, so I can’t lose really!
Finally, Ellie from Musings of a Bookshop Girl sent me a copy of Ape House by Sara Gruen right before Christmas and I loved it. Since then I’ve been on the look-out for a copy of her other book, Water for Elephants, and look what I found yesterday…
