Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Vicky over at the Book, Biscuits and Tea blog to let readers know what book related items have come our way.
Letterbox Love is a meme hosted by Lynsey over at Narratively Speaking and this meme has a British feel to it.
I’ve opted to use the logo designed by Faye over at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts rather than the “official” one because I’m a sucker for old fashioned red postboxes.
The Stacking The Shelves meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews to promote the books that we’re adding to our shelves.
Finally, the Bought, Borrowed & Bagged meme hosted by Cimarron and Braine over at the Talk Supe blog.
Hi there, fellow bloggers, bibliophiles and generally all round bookish folk, and I hope that you’re all well.
Well, after the massive haul of a couple of weeks ago, plus the changeover to my new blog, it’s been a bit of a quiet couple of weeks. There’s only a couple of books in this week’s haul, and probably two of the most different types of books that you could probably imagine.
“Doctor Who: The Silent Stars Go By” (50th Anniversary Edition) by Dan Abnett
2013 sees the celebration of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary. As part of the celebrations, BBC Books have re-released eleven books – one for each of the television incarnation – to showcase the Doctor’s literary exploits which were previously published in house or through Target, the company responsible for the Doctor Who novelisations from the 1970s through to the 1990s.
In the case of the Eleventh Doctor, portrayed on screen by Matt Smith, the BBC have re-released Dan Abnett’s 2011 novel, “The Silent Stars Go By”, which features his adversary from the classic series, The Ice Warriors, who are also due to make a comeback when the programme returns in three weeks time.
“The Case of the Missing Boyfriend” by Nick Alexander
I saw this book as I was trawling through Amazon and the interesting title, along with the free price tag, prompted me to get it as soon as I could
Books read this week:
“Life In Outer Space” by Melissa Keil
I bought this book after seeing it on various book hauls and the whole film geek thing had me interested. I have to say that it didn’t disappoint in satisfying my geeky gene.
If you’d like to see what I thought, please check out my review.
“Pushing The Limits” by Katie McGarry
I’ve had this book for a while due to the buzz that it’s prompted on the blogs. It probably would still be sitting there unread right now if it weren’t for the prompting of my great friend, and booktuber, Hazel (aka chocolatequeen20000).
If you haven’t watched any of her vlog postings, please check out her channel.
And that’s all for this week, please leave your comments and haul links below as I love to hear what books are being added to the shelves of everyone in the bookish community.
