Book Haul #42


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews and Letterbox Love is a UK edition hosted by Narratively Speaking. Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

I had an amazing time in London/Reading, the Patrick Ness event was fantastic and I got to meet the very lovely Laure Eve (author of the soon-to-be-released Fearsome Dreamer), there was cake and prosecco with blue Curacao caviar! I didn't go mad buying books, just a few most of which I had to leave at my sister's as my suitcase was full and a gorgeous new Kindle Fire cover. I also got my dress for my oldest nephew's wedding in March next year, very vintage in grey, black & white! Competing for most exciting bookish thing last week was an email saying I'd been pre-approved for Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield so after my WoW post about it you can imagine just how excited I was. I was just about to descend into Baker Street tube station when I got that email so my subsequent squeeing was witnessed by many!

    1. Far Far Away seemed amazing, I saw it buzz over RandomBuzzers and definitely added that to my TBR list as well. Best of wishes, and hopefully you enjoy them!
