First IMM of the year. I have some fab things to show you!!
My Christmas haul
My wonderful husband got me some lovely books for Christmas. He bought ...
Genesis by Bernard Beckett (UK hardback)
I added this to my wishlist ages ago when I was on a dystopian kick. I read it on Christmas day in one sitting. It is a bit of a thinker - my review will be up in January.
Solace of the road by Siobhan Dowd (UK hardback)
I have loved all of the books I have read by Siobhan. This is the only one by her I didn't have.
I am number four by Pittacus Lore (UK special signed hardback edition)
I loved this book and I can't wait for the film to come out. It was actually one of very few of my books I have managed to get my husband to read. This edition is lovely and signed (yes I am obssessed with signed books). My review for it is here
Infinite days by Rebecca Maizel (UK hardback)
I actually knew this one is coming. It was really cheap on Amazon (literally about £2.50) so I ordered it. Only to find Hadley had already ordered it. I have since given my copy to someone else. I like the idea of this as it seems to be a unique take on vampires.
Rowan the strange by Julie Hearn (UK paperback)
I had been meaning to read this for ages and have had it on my wishlist for ages. I will be reading it for my attempt at the BBC crown!!
Other books I received
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman (UK hardback)
We had one of these years ago and sold it on ebay for a fortune (it was a first edition - this isn't quite). I have regretted selling it ever since especially when I picked up Northern lights in a similiar edition (I already had Amber spyglass). I finally found a copy of it to match my others so I am v ery pleased. Another book I will be reading for the BBC challenge.
Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate (UK proof)
The lovely emma at asamum's booktopia sent me this copy because she was lovely and I had previously sulked like a small child about not being able to get a copy. I promise never to sulk again. It has been described as Macbeth meets cruel intentions!!
