Morning everyone! Where is time going?! It is going way to fast! The weather has turned already and the shops are getting their Christmas things in already! Crazy! Some more brilliant books this week:


Physical Books:


The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes (Purchased)
The Last Runaway by Tracey Chevalier (Purchased)
Bridge of Sand by Janet Burroway (Review copy)
Fractured by Dani Atkins (Review copy)
Perfect Ruin by Lauren Destefano (Review copy)


Ebooks

Some really exciting books this week. I'm looking forward to reading The Last Runaway by Tracey Chevalier as I have read all her books and been waiting for her latest one to come out in paperback for a while. Was so excited to get a copy of Fractured by Dani Atkins, what an absolutely beautiful cover! And the story sounds amazing! Once again I cannot resist Harper Impusle's beautiful covers and Beyond Grace's Rainbow has already had some amazing reviews! 

Over to you all once again. What have you all received this week? Hope you have a lovely relaxing Sunday :)

  1. Loved The Shining Girls! I have a copy of The Last Runaway from when it was on NetGalley for the hardback, oops. Would like to read it still as I loved Remarkable Creatures.
