another book haul

Yes, another week, another pile of books is accumulated

*sigh*

*big smile*

here they be:

books i did buy for me

Yes, its true i have the two Isabel Greenberg graphic novels, at last, in my life and in my hot little hands *dances for joy*

I treated myself using gift vouchers i was kindly given for Crimbo.  Aren’t they bloody gorgeous? Oh yes they are!

Also i buyed me these

Yes, you’re right what am i doing buying 4 sci fi books when i dont read sci fi?

Well thats a good question but somehow i just fancied me some so Space type books and as im reading (slowly) The long way to a small angry planet it seemed sensible to buy the sequel.  Mind you I am annoyed with myself that i didnt notice it was only out in hardback *waves fist in air*

and now for some books i was kindlee sent by those sooper dooper publishy types

I was approached by Quercus who asked if id like a copy of Hattie Hoffman and after doing a bit of detective work on Amazon i said “yes please”  It is written from perspective of three characters in the first person so whats not to like there?

I responded to a blogger call on Twitter for a copy of Spontaneous which sounds rather unusual to say the least. (people spontaneously combusting, but humourously?) so thank Canongate books, i think!

and finally I was sent Skintown completely unsolicited by W5 books (Johnathan & Hannah) and Doubleday.  There is no way I would ever buy this for myself, its way out of the old comfort zone but a tiny bit i read is very funny and has whetted the old appetite for more, so who knows eh?  Its written by an actor dont you know?  Ciaran McMenamin was in Primeval which i used to watch until it became so barmy only a brain dead amoeba could follow it.

So there we have it, what larks eh?
