Showcase Sunday #14


Showcase Sunday is hosted by the fabulous Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea and is all about sharing our new books - beg, borrowed or bought.

It's been a slooooowww week for me in both reading and book hoarding, and I apologise for my serious lack of replying and commenting in the last week, I've had dodgy internet AGAIN :(

New Books

Want To Go Private by Sarah Darer Littman, which I purchased after reading Lori at Pure Imagination's review.
The Endearment by LaVyrle Spencer which I purchased in a fit of nostalgia - I loved her books as a teenager.

Books Read
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (audio)

Currently Reading
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
The Testimony by James Smythe
Caribou Island by David Vann

Last Week On the Blog

I reviewed The Passage by Justin Cronin, Barely Alive by Bonnie R. Paulson and Latter Day of the Dead by Kevin Krohn. I Waited on Wednesday for one of the rare contemporary YA titles that I'm stalking, and Top Ten Tuesday was my list of authors I'm thankful for.

Next Week On the Blog

Reviews of The Twelve by Justin Cronin and Zom-B by Darren Shan, audiobook Friday is back and the usual Top Ten Tuesday and Waiting on Wednesday and my November wrap-up.

Oh, and of course, my blog is now one year old, and to celebrate there's a giveaway - don't forget to enter ;-)

How was your week?  Any exciting new books?

    1. PS. My oven fire was pretty much the same...Hubby was cooking the turkey and there was a hole in the bottom of the pan...drip , drip, drip, Vooom! Luckily we saw it happen...got the turkey out, cleaned the oven, and popped it back in...only a very very faint smoked taste...or so I hear as I don't eat meat.

  11. Looking forward to seeing what you think of Rot & Ruin, as I have that one in my TBR pile. And loved The Graveyard Book! Of course, I love almost everything Neil Gaiman has ever written, so I may be just a little biased. :)

    Enjoy!
