'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Showcase Sunday #46

It's Sunday again so we all know that it's time for Showcase Sunday. It's a lovely weekly meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits and Tea, and it allows us to show off all the lovely buys this week. I love this meme as it gives a chance for us to show and browse so many books!

Net Galley

I went to Kim Curran and Bryony Pearce's book launch Thursday at Forbidden Planet in London. It was absolutely amazing and I'm so happy for them. Having read and loved their books, it was brilliant to see such a wonderful turnout for the event. Read more about it here. It was lovely to chat with them and to also meet and chat with Amanda and Caroline from Angry Robot and Strange Chemistry. Amazing day!
Signed copy of The Weight of Souls and a cuuuuuute little ghost charm! Thanks Bryony :). 
A signed copy of Shift and Control by Kim Curran. So many kind words, thank you!


  1. So cool that you have signed books and swag and all, great! I love that ^^
    And yes, I will get to Maas, too! :) :P

  2. These Broken Stars has a very pretty cover - I hope you enjoy your haul.


  3. That's great that you got to meet them and get some signed books and swag! :)

  4. I've met Kim a few times, she's lovely! Wish I could have gone to the launch but still at that point in new job where I don't want to disappear off early (even though I'm pretty sure I can choose my own hours and that will mean more launches in future!).

    1. Awesome!! Hope I manage to bump into you at a few :) as long as I can scrape a few pennies together haha.

  5. I got these broken stars too! hope it's as good as that gorgeous cover!

  6. These Broken Stars has such a pretty cover, I'll have to check it out! And I've wanted to go to Forbidden Planet in London for an absolute eternity!

    Happy reading :)
