This Week's New Books

If you're wondering why I'm not having an IMM - read this post.

There are so many new "Look at my new books!" memes that I'm having troubles choosing. I know a few of the hosts personally and I don't feel like picking teams on this one. So, I introduce my own conglomeration of all the memes out there! If you're hosting a similar meme or if one of your friends hosts one, let me know and I'll add their graphic (:


Since I finally got a job (although it's just for three weeks) I decided I could reward myself, just for a little bit! Me and the boyfriend went to Amsterdam and visited the Waterstone's there. They had an amazing collection, but I decided not to go overboard and only bought two.

Click on the covers to go to their Goodreads page.

For review:


Big thank you to Outskirts Press and the author for this one! I have no idea what to expect, but it does sound great.

Bought:


I can't wait to read either of these! I've already started Miss Peregrine's, but I'm not sure what to think of it. It's very atmospheric, yet slightly weird and I feel a bit disconnected from the story. I'll let you all know in a review.

So what do you have in your mailbox, on your shelf or to showcase? Leave a comment with your link so I can visit you back!

Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post! Congrats on getting a job, however short term. I'm looking for work right now too, so I know how tough it can be. Affinity looks very intriguing. 
Happy Reading!

Love Sarah Waters. Haven't read this one yet. Looking forward to your thoughts.

Nikki said...

Have you read any other Sarah Walters? I've only read The Little Stranger (and seen a TV version of The Nightwatch) so it'd be interesting to know which of hers you'd recommend if you have.

I think I'll get round to reading Miss Peregrine's sooner or later as it does sound very interesting! Enjoy your books :)

I wasn't overly impressed with Miss Peregrine's but it was enjoyable. Hope you like it!

Jen Ryland said...

Waterstones!! I've only been to the one in London. And Hatchards. Shopping for books in London is like going to heaven.
Is that a new Sarah Waters book? I loved the Night Watch!
Clearly you and I need to be friends, or at least go book shopping together ;)

Congrats on the new job! You have an awesome haul this week although I haven't heard of any of these ones I may need to check them out.

I really liked Miss Peregrine's - especially for the weirdness!  Hope you end up enjoying it as well!
