Sunday post #16

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.

A Cinderella Christmas by Holly Kingston - ebook (review copy)
A Merry Little Christmas by Julia Williams (bought)
Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop by Jenny Colgan (review copy)
Fractured by Dani Atkins (review copy)
It's Now or Never by Carole Matthews (bought)
Make My Wish Come True by Fiona Harper (review copy)
The Magic of Christmas by Trisha Ashley (bought)
Welcome to My World by Miranda Dickinson (bought)

There is such a festive theme running through my books this week, I love it! I've been waiting on Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop for a while now and unfortunately I have a few review books on the go at the moment that I have to finish first, but I'm very excited to start reading it. I'm also really looking forward to Fractured which sounds like a poignant read and has received fantastic reviews in the blogosphere so far.

I'm part of the blog tour for Novelicious' e-novella A Cinderella Christmas so while I've already read the book (spoiler alert: it's very cute!) I won't be posting about it until mid-December. I've just started Make My Wish Come True, so a review for that should be up next week :)

And while I've completely run out of shelf space and promised myself that I wouldn't buy any more books for a while... when I walked past a charity shop yesterday, Welcome to My World caught my eye in the window and it was screaming "BUY ME!" Of course I has to oblige and when I had a look inside the shop I found a few more books from authors I love, plus one I'm unfamiliar with (Julia Williams) but has a super cute seasonal cover so I had to pick those up to.

Since I got my Kindle last week I've also gone a bit crazy with buying heaps of free and 99p ebooks from Amazon, though there are too many to mention them all above. I am nicely stocking up for my Christmas break though.

I hope all of you have read and received some wonderful new books in the past week as well! x

    Followed ya on bloglovin <3

  3. OMG I LOVED FRACTURED! Seriously the best book I have read this year! Really hope you enjoy! I also have Make My Wish Come True to read. I read The Magic of Christmas last year and thought it was a great read. Have you read The Twelve Days of Christmas by Trisha Ashley? It's definitely her best book! Ah the danger of the one-click on kindle! Can definitely relate there! Hope you enjoy them all though and excited to hear what you think of Fractured.
