So I’m weak. Bite Me!
Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia, of The Printed Page. Head over there if you want to see what everyone else got last week or you want to play along & Bad Bloggers is hosted by Chris of Stuff as Dreams are Made on.
Kit’s Wilderness by David Almond Nobodies fault this one, although… It is sorta Nymeth’s fault for making me want to read him again…
Ingo by Helen Dumore: I’ve seen this one about a time or two, and on Saturday when I went to check out a couple of local bookshops I’d discovered it was in the second hand section, what’s a reader to do?!
Gold by Dan Rhodes: Another impulse by on my book forage. (New this time though)
Borderliners by Peter Høeg: And again! (In my defense, it will help out nicely with the Lost in Traslation Challenge!)
Seraph of Sorrow: by Mary Janice Davidson and Anthony Alonghi: A series I’d probably not have touched it it wasn’t for Bookmooch, but I’m addicted now and this is the latest one.
Sweethearts by Sarah Zarr: NEVER in a million years would I have bought this book, just for the cover alone. But I did and that would be Nymeth’s fault!
The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns by Elizabeth Leiknes: Bancroft Press’ fault! I know that quite a few of you have been contacted by this publisher and have been plesantly surprised by the fact they actually appear to have taken the time to skim our blogs and taylor thier offerings, I had a lovely email conversation with one of their team when what they offered wasn’t quite my cup of tea, when he mentioned this one, even though it still could be considered too chick-lit for my normal tastes I was intrigued and impressed enough by them that I wanted to help out. Some of the major house could learn a lot from these guys!
The worst thing about all of this is that the 6 ‘purchased’ books all came into the house on Saturday and The Sinful Life arrived today!
Don’t forget if you want to add to your own TBR piles I am currently holding a giveaway for two young adult books!
