The first thing I must mention this Sunday is We Were Liars. Technically it’s not a new purchase for this week, but I finished reading it this week and can’t stop thinking about how great it was. After much pondering about how to word my review (it’s SO difficult to do this book justice without giving too much away) I actually managed to get it written, and you can read it by following the link below.
In other book related news…
New To My Shelves This Week:
The Diviners by Libba Bray.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler.
I picked both those books up at the library, which will give me an incentive to get started on one of them, as the loan is for three weeks and there are definitely other people waiting for We Are All… as it’s been longlisted for the Booker Prize.
And, for my bookish item purchase of the week – I was having a wander around the bookshop the other day and came across some little arrow shaped page markers. They’re in a set of 8, all different colours, and I couldn’t resist getting some, because I’m always trying to mark pages for quotes or memorable passages which I know I’ll want to come back to, so they seemed like a good idea.
