This week has been an amazing book week for me. On Monday I won a flash competition run by Simon & Schuster UK on Facebook and Twitter to celebrate Smurf's Day, where they were giving away a huge pile of blue books to just one winner!
They arrived on Tuesday and it was just like Christmas for me and my son! Here's what we got:
Just Take My Heart by Mary Higgins Clark
Blind Fury by Lynda La Plante
A Forest of Stars by Kevin J. Anderson
Babylon Nights by Daniel Depp
The Accidental Proposal by Matt Dunn
Blood Ties by Sophie McKenzie
Hunted by Sophie McKenzie
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Milo and the Restart Button by Alan Silberberg
Hello Dubai by Joe Bennett
Deadliest Waters by Sig Hansen & Mark Sundeen
Tour Troubles by Tamsyn Murray
Fantastic Frankie and the Brain Drain Machine by Anna Kemp & Alex T. Smith
Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman
Barry The Fish With Fingers by Sue Hendra
Dogs Don't Do Ballet by Anna Kemp & Sara Ogilvie
What a fabulous prize that was! Thank you so much Simon & Schuster UK!
Next, on to the books I bought for myself ... the paperbacks
Hereafter by Tara Hudson
... and the Kindle books. I don't know whether you know, but Amazon UK currently have a summer sale on Kindle titles and I managed to pick up these four titles for under £1 each!
Witch Child by Celia Rees
The Summoner by Layton Green
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Eden by Keary Taylor
I also won some gorgeous soaps and stash in a Facebook competition by author Suza Kates. Thank you so much Suza! I am a stash horder and love bookmarks and pens. The soaps smell gorgeous and they are named after the witches in Whisper of a Witch, the first book in Suza's awesome Savannah Coven series.
and last but not least I received one Kindle book for review. It's The Egyptian by Layton Green, but as yet the cover isn't finalised so I don't have one to show you.
And that's my mega huge and totally unexpected haul this week! What did you get in your mailbox?
