Hello my fellow bookworms, here’s the goodies I’ve managed to add to my bookshelf and Kindle recently:
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
The lovely, wonderful, amazing, book blogging friend Lynn really kindly sent me her copy of Jane Steele because she thought I’d love it – I am super excited to read this.
Glorious Apollo by E Barrington
Eleanor of Aquitaine by Christopher Nicole
I received these 2 historical fictions from Endeavour Press; the first through their newsletter and the second off Netgalley. Glorious Apollo is about the notorious poet Byron while Eleanor of Aquitaine is the future wife of Henry V and Queen of England. I have not read anything by either author but both books sound interesting.
Indiana Belle by John A Heldt
(American Journey #3)
Resthaven by Erik Therme
I was kindly contacted and offered copies of young adult, thriller Resthaven and historical fiction Indiana Belle by their authors. Erik Therme is a new author for me while I have previously enjoyed The Mine (Northwest Passage #1) by John A Heldt.
My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier
Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett
I am always on the look out for new-to-me books by Daphne du Maurier and Terry Pratchett. On my last trawl through my two favourite charity bookshops I struck gold: with Lords and Ladies from Pratchett’s hilarious epic Discworld series and du Maurier’s modern classic My Cousin Rachel.
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
Tunnels by Roderick Gordon & Brian Williams
On the same visit to my favourite charity bookshops, I also spotted these lovely copies of fantasy The Lies of Locke Lamora and young adult, fantasy Tunnels. I previously read both but lost my copies! I am looking forward to rediscovery these gems and continuing the series.
The Indian Fairy Book edited by Cornelius Mathews
Stories of King Arthur and His Knights edited by Sir Thomas Malory
30 Days of Daal by Pragati Bidkar
Then finally but not least, I picked up, from Amazon, these two short story collections and Indian cookbook free!
Have you read any of these? What new books are you excited about?
