what’s the buzz: weekly round-up
It’s been a quiet week actually – not much happening at all really. Boring but true. Ah well, January can be a bit like that – everybody is skint after Christmas and having to tighten those purse strings. I’m no exception!
this week’s posts:
I finally (finally!) showed some restraint this week and only got a couple of physical books (well, three to be exact!) Go me!
Only one non-vintage book this week! I am really looking forward to reading The Harrowing as the synopsis sounds so darn good – definitely need to read it asap!
I’ll freely admit, I picked up The Dragon and the George because it is (partly) what the cartoon Flight of Dragons was based on – which I loved as a youngling! I also picked up one of the Caitlin books, though I was hoping to get another edition…
I was really chuffed to get Edinburgh Dusk for £1.00 on Kindle and even more chuffed to get The Girl with the Red Balloon for £0.49! What a bargain and both books I have been coveting for a while…
Believe it on not, these two titles were actually free on Kindle and I was very lucky to snag them while the offer was going! Both look really interesting too.
I haven’t yet read The Flame in the Mist but I picked up this short story set in the same world for when I finally do get round to reading these books (soon, very soon!) I also got this book about Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka as I am interested in true crime (and it was going for £0.99 on Kindle!)
books for review
I got rather a few ARCs on the other hand so I wasn’t totally good this week. Ah well, such is life – I am really excited by the books I was approved for so I can’t feel too bad. 😉
I am super-excited to get approved for Bloodwitch. I’ve heard such good things about this series and I have the first two books so I am very much ready to dive in!
Both of these look really, really good. I am especially intrigued by Diamond Heart but Foreign to You also sounds really interesting and like something I would enjoy.
Again, some really interesting looking titles. I am loving the simplicity of the covers and I am particularly drawn to The Truth about Keeping Secrets.
I can’t help but think about the game Half-Life when i see this title! 😉 I am super-intrigued by The Wolf and the Watchman – the cover is stunning…
