Another awesome week here at the overflowing library!


Bought

This weekend I got to go to Cambridge which is one of my most favourite places in the world. One of the many reasons why I like going there is we detour to Ely on the way and go to Topping and Co, possibly one of the best bookshops I have ever been in mainly because they have loads of signed books up for grabs. Whilst there I picked up

Reckless by Cornelia Funke and Birth of a Killer by Darren Shan. I've not really heard a lot about either of them except that I've heard both of the authors are good and being the signed book addict I am I couldn't resist.

I also found Shift by Rachel Vincent and The year the gypsies came by Linzi Glass really cheap so picked them up too. I haven't got as far as this book in the shifters series - I have enjoyed it so far, and the last time I read a Linzi Glass book I loved it.

Won

A very lucky week for me for books won. I got a signed copy of Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes from Lyndsey at Heaven, Hell and Purgatory book reviews which I was incredibly excited about and read pretty much the moment it came through the door. I also won two ARCs from Jess at jessheartsbooks both of which look awesome Boys don't cry by Malorie Blackman (review to come - loved it) and Department 19 by Will Hill  (Vampire hunting new series - there isn't a lot on goodreads about it yet as it isn't out until March next year)

For review

One lovely little book for review this week Solid by Shelley Workinger which she sent me herself - thank you very much it looks fab and I'll be getting to it very shortly (my mum actually picked it up the moment it came through the door and read it in a matter of hours and enjoyed it)
