Showcase Sunday #21

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.

Only one physical book this week (hence no vlog), but what a book!

In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters (huge thanks to Abrams & Chronicle)

Although it's not released until April, I started flicking through the pages on Thursday and couldn't help but start reading it.  This book is everything I hoped it would be and more - can't wait to share my thoughts with you in April!

Around the Internets

I'm featured at Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile, talking about blogging and zombie survival - a huge thanks to Jessica for featuring me for a whole month!

A fascinating interview with John Green at the Sydney Morning Herald.

If you're a blogger, this post at The Bibliotaphe Closest will really ring true.  And it made me nod my head so much I was in danger of whiplash!

Molli at Once Upon a Prologue started a new discussion series and the first post is about Blogger Jealousy.

And unfortunately plagiarism has raised its ugly head again.  Auntie Spinelli Reads and other bloggers have unfortunately discovered a blogger had been plagiarising reviews from other bloggers.  Stealing (that's what it is!) is NOT COOL!

Any bookish loveliness in your mailbox this week?
