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.

What I Read Recently
It's been a slow couple of weeks reading wise. Roll on Christmas holidays when I can finally start making a dent in my TBR again! I did finish Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz, A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen and Breakers by Edward W. Robertson. I'm currently reading The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier, Plague by H.W. 'Buzz' Bernard and savouring Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen!
Other Bits and Pieces
I'm so surprised I made it this far in my post without mentioning it, but I've been blurbed! Last year I read Rapture by Phillip W. Simpson, which was one of my favourite books of 2011, and I'm super-excited to read the next book. Thanks Phill!
You can read my review of Rapture here, and Tribulation is next on my TBR!
