Firstly this week I've received some books for review that I've known were on their way for a while now and I'm so excited to finally have them!


The Understorey by Fisher Amelie (with thanks to Fisher)
Stealing Phoenix by Joss Sterling (many thanks to Liz, Jinnie & Oxford University Press)
The Vampire Club by J.R. Rain & Scott Nicholson (with thanks to Scott)

Next up are books I grabbed for my Kindle during the Amazon summer sale.  I just couldn't resist.  They even had Shadows on the Moon in there as a pre-order (it's since been released) and I got that for £2.49!


Girl Parts by John M. Cusick
Corsets & Clockwork by various awesome authors - check out the link!
Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott
White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick

And that's the awesomeness I received in my mailbox (urm, mostly through my wireless actually lol) this week.  What did you get in yours?  Ooh, and don't forget to enter Book Blogger Bingo to win a copy of Whisper of a Witch by Suza Kates!  Winning bingo number will be posted next Saturday!  Will it be you?

I managed to restrain myself and NOT get anything in the kindle sale...but if I'd seen white crow I definitely would have gotten it. It sounds so good! Looking forward to your review of that.

Great books Karen.
I really want to read Shadows On The Moon because I love Zoe Marriot's other books. I'm trying so hard not to buy any more books! I'll look out for your review.
Corsets And Clockwork is another one I saw and ummed and aahed about.
I keep hearing good things about Stealing Pheonix too.
Enjoy all your books!

Small Review said...

Interesting books this week. I'm really curious to see what you think of White Crow and Shadows on the Moon. Marcus Sedgwick seems to be a love-or-hate author. I read another book by Zoe Marriott and I both liked and disliked it. The idea of an Asian Cinderella retelling sounds great though. Hope you enjoy!

Mel said...

The Amazon kindle sale is dangerous! I've just stopped by myself and picked up a few books for my holiday! :-)
