It’s been a quiet week on my blog.
I think taking part in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon last weekend, and then going straight on to participate in the Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon this last week has helped me focus a lot more on actual reading rather than reviewing and updating the blog, which is great in one way but of course the result of this is that I have reviews to catch up on, which I really will try to make an effort with over the course of next week because I’ve read some more really good books, but for now…
Onto the books…
New To My Shelves This Week
All my recent additions are ebooks, some purchased and some borrowed from the library, and include…
The Rabbit Back Literature Society by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen – This one had caught my eye in the bookshop a while ago and sounded so unusual that I’m really intrigued and want to know more. I was going to try and borrow it from the library, but in the end settled for the ebook version instead.
The Giver by Lois Lowry – My only library loan of the week, and also my first library ebook too. I love how easy it was, to use their catalogue, find the book, then download it and instantly start reading. Amazing. I think it’s something I might do more often as I noticed they also have all the Percy Jackson books on their catalogue and I fancy reading those too. There are a few other things I’m interested in too.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – I bought this one because I recently bought Cinder and it looks like a really good series so I want to be able to move straight on to reading this once I’ve done with the first book.
Books That Caught My Eye This Week (Must Find Out More)
The Circle by Sara B. Elfgren and Mats Strandberg – This one caught my eye whilst I was buying Cinder and looks like something I might check out in the future.
Cold Magic by Kate Elliott – I saw this book recommended on a blog and it sounds like a great read.
Cress by Marissa Meyer – This one will be the next in the Lunar Chronicles that I’ll purchase, having recently bought the first two in the series.
Feed by Mira Grant – I fancy something else along the zombie/post-apocalypse line as I loved reading The Girl With All The Gifts (and will be adding a review to the blog soon). This series comes highly recommended so it’s definitely one I’ll be adding to my TBR list.
