Book Haul #48


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!

Thanks for all the well wishes about my dad, that meant a lot :) He's doing alright so far but we're all still worried about him a great deal. I'm giving myself the day off from looking after him and heading to my first ever convention! As you read this I'll be enjoying various panels such as 'How To Poop In A Fantasy Universe' and 'Seriously Inventive Ways of Killing People' at BristolCon, mixing with lots of lovely people and lots of lovely authors. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is having to get up at 6am, the con is only 20 miles from me but of course, being a non-driver, I have to get the train which involves leaving too early for my liking...

Without further ado, here are the books I got this week! I would just like to say that the cover of Fearie Tales is absolutely stunning in real life and if you love fairy tales you need to buy a copy of this book (and there's a Neil Gaiman story in there as an added incentive to invest). There's a whole load of bargains in the UK Kindle store at the moment, you can be proud of me as I managed to resist buying dozens of books!

Bought

Fearie Tales - ed. Stephen Jones

Dark Currents - Jacqueline Carey

Deathless - Catherynne M Valente

Kindle

Ways To See A Ghost - Emily Diamand

A very restrained week on all counts, I'm hoping this new surge of will-power will get me through BristolCon without blowing too much. What will help is knowing whatever I do buy I've got to carry home...

Let me know what you got this week!
