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.
• Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick (review copy)
• Landline by Rainbow Rowell (review copy)
• Season to Taste or How to Eat Your Husband by Natalie Young (free)
I am also very pleased with my review books this week, which are both titles I've been very excited to read for a while now. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock is the first book I've requested through new site bookbridgr (it was super easy and quick to do) and what a novel to kick start it with. I finished it in a day (my commute back and forth and my lunch break) because I couldn't put it down. It's a beautiful and brilliant novel and I cannot stop thinking about it. I'll publish my full review tomorrow but for now I can say that I HIGHLY recommend it. It's the first novel by Matthew Quick I've read and I'll be definitely checking out his others too - have you guys read any of his books yet?
While I didn't enjoy Eleanor & Park as much as many other people (It was good but not mind-blowing, my expectations may have been too high after all the hype though) I am very keen to check out Rainbow Rowell's new novel. I think she has a wonderfully honest and relatable way of describing people's lives and I hope that this book can turn me into a fangirl (pun intended) of her work.
What have you guys been reading this week? I've picked up Bad Brides by Rebecca Chance for the weekend as I needed a fun escapism read after the emotionally intense (but utterly amazing) Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock.
