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 everyone and I hope to find you all well this weekend.
Well, after the luxury of the last three weeks where I’ve been able to buy books using the vouchers I received for Christmas, it’s back to buying my own and I decided to treat myself to a few bargains from my Wish List.
“Doctor Who (Time Trips): Into The Nowhere” by Jenny T. Colgan
For the benefit of anyone who doesn’t know about this range, the BBC have started releasing short stories from well-known authors, similar in the way that Puffin did last year for their “Doctor Who” 50th anniversary range.
This month, Jenny Colgan, author of “Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe”, “Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop of Dreams” and the full length “Doctor Who” novel, “Dark Horizons”, takes us on a journey with the eleventh Doctor and Clara as they travel to an unknown planet where there are no records held in the TARDIS data banks.
I enjoyed “Dark Horizons“, especially for the fact that she captured the eleventh Doctor perfectly, so I’m really looking forward to how she’s written the partnership between the Doctor and Clara.
“Adventures With The Wife In Space: Living With Doctor Who” by Neil Perryman and Sue Perryman
I heard about this book through the Whovian websites and waited until it came down in price before purchasing it. Basically, the premise of this book is that we follow Neil and Sue in their quest to watch all of the classic episodes of “Doctor Who” from 1963’s “An Unearthly Child” through to the 1996 television movie starring Paul McGann.
“The City’s Son” by Tom Pollock
I heard about this book through the haul posts last year and kept a casual eye on it due to the story’s premise of being set in a version of London that sits alongside the one we know. After reading “Neverwhere” last year, I’m looking forward to getting round to reading this book.
I started my quest to read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories written by Conan Doyle, which has been given the banner “The Great British Sherlock Read Off” thanks to my friend Mendy from the “Hot Cute Girly Geek”, with “A Study In Scarlet” and you can check out my thoughts here.
In addition to this, I started reading “Behind The Sofa” which features stories from celebrity fans of their remembrances of “Doctor Who”.
As always, please feel free to leave your comments and haul links below.
