Sunday post #12



Sunday is when I sit back with a lovely cup of tea and write about all the wonderful new books I've received and purchased in the past week. This post participates in fab memes Showcase Sunday and Stacking the Shelves.



Not Without You by Harriet Evans (review copy)
Picture Me Gone by Meg Rosoff (review copy)
The Best Book in the World by Peter Stjernström (competition win)
The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert (competition win)
When You Walked Back Into My Life by Hilary Boyd (review copy)
Wish Upon a Star by Trisha Ashley (review copy)



I didn't receive many new books last week and decided to skip my Sunday post so I'd have a little more to show this time around - and what a gorgeous bunch they are! I've already finished When You Walked Back Into My Life (see my review here) and Picture Me Gone (review up soon) and am keen to pick up the others in the next week or two as well.

I'm particularly looking forward to Wish Upon a Star, though I may wait a few weeks for colder temperatures to set in. As for The Signature of All Things, isn't is the prettiest cover ever? Honestly, I don't even mind what the book is about, all I want to do is stroke the cover *weird*

Anyway, I hope you all had a brilliant bookish week ♥

    1. I've not read a Harriet Evans book before (I think) so it's good to hear that you loved 'Happily Ever After'! Thanks for the comment, Laura. xx

  5. I love stroking the pretty covers! Overall I liked The Best Book in the World, some bits were really funny but other bits dragged a little. Hope you enjoy it.

    1. 'The Best Book in the World' sounds really interesting. I have a habit of getting stuck within a specific genre (women's fiction at the moment) and I thought this would be the perfect book to try outside of my comfort zone :)

  7. Wish Upon a Star has been on my Christmas reading list last year but I didn't manage to read it - I might have to pick it up this year. :) But like you, I'm waiting for winter to arrive before picking up any Christmassy books.

    1. I didn't realise it was an old release! I have to admit I read a few Christmas reads back in August already (proof copies of novels to be released this season) but right now I'm not feeling quite as winter-y so I'm waiting for a bit :)
