Sunday post #14


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.

Getting Rooted in New Zealand by Jamie Baywood (competition win)
I Heart Christmas by Lindsey Kelk (review copy)
Lighthouse Bay by Kimberley Freeman (review copy)
Mary Berry's Christmas Collection (competition win)
Me and Mr Carrington by Alexandra Brown - ebook (competition win)
Motherland by William Nicholson (review copy)
Pivot Point by Kasie West (review copy)
The Lives She Left Behind by James Long (review copy)
The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes (review copy)



It's been a while since I made a Sunday post as I was on holiday in Scotland with limited Internet (and no access to my mail box :p) hence the amount of books listed in this post.

Most of the above was waiting for me upon my return and what a fabulous way to come back! I was feeling a bit down because the fantastic trip was over but opening one exciting package after another surely made me feel somewhat better. I was particularly happy with the amount of Christmas related reads as I LOVE Christmas, and with it already being NovemberI am starting to get properly in the Christmas mood!

Have you guys read any of the books listed above yet? If so, what did you think? I hope you have all received some fabulous new reads as well!
