Letterbox Love/Stacking The Shelve


 


Phew, another week gone already? I've had my boyfriend staying with me for the past several weeks, which has been lovely, but he's now off home again. The upside is that now I'll have reading time again! So reviews will be back very soon. Specifically, I'll be putting up my thoughts on the 'Marked' anthology, which I talked about in the last LL/StS post, either tomorrow or Monday as it releases very soon!

On to the books!

I had an amazon voucher, so yesterday I bought this:



As someone who worked a ski season in the alps a few years ago, I've known about Belle's blog for a while and enjoyed reading it, so when I saw she'd turned a lot of the blog into a book, I wanted to see what it said. Review to come soon. 

I'm also full of the cold just now, so decided I should get a new audiobook for when I just can't cope with looking at a screen/page any more. I picked out this: 



I've seen Peter V. Brett's books all over the place in shops for a while now, so thought I'd give it a try. 


What books did you get this week?

I haven't heard of these two before, but I hope you enjoy them! That's pretty cool how that first author turned her blog into a book. WOW. :) Neat. My StS!

The Painted Man sounds good! I've never read anything by this author before either, but I love stories about demons so I'm going to add it to my wishlist.

Cait, yeah, it's always interesting to see how people can do cool things with self-publishing these days.
Saaratis, thanks for visiting.
Chrissi reads, I hope so!
Amber, I hope you like it if you give it a try.
