Sunday Post 25th November 2012

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ to recap the past week on the blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 


I got a real mix of books this week!



Bought: Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell. This is more of a non-fiction book, but I read the whole thing through last night, and it is so funny. But I know from experience of working at a library that people really do say stupid things. 

For Review: Quicksilver by R.J Anderson. I don't know if this is a sequel or a companion novel to Ultraviolet, but either way I'm excited to read this one! This is due to be published in March 2013 (January in ebook fomat). Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for my review copy.

Gifted: Trapped by Kevin Hearne. This is book 5 in the Iron Druid Chronicles. Thanks so much to Lynsey at Narratively Speaking for sending me her unwanted copy.

--------------------------
This week on Always Lost in Stories I posted-
I wished for Ten by Gretchen McNeil on Wishlist Wednesday

Coming up this week look out for-
More book reviews
Also, Best of the Bunch goes up on Friday. (Best of the Bunch is a monthly meme hosted by me where we can recap all the books that we read or reviewed over the month, and award our favourite with the title of Best of the Bunch) Go to the Best of the Bunch page here to find out more, grab the stickers ready to write up your post, and find out how to join in.

  7. I hope you like Quicksilver! I finished it last week and thought it was complete and utter brilliance. Just as good as Ultraviolet, if not more! And it's a companion to Ultraviolet, told from Tori's point of view. :) Great haul!
