another book haul
Yes, another week, another pile of books is accumulated
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?
