Hello everyone and hope you have all had a good week/weekend :). Here are my books this week.

I already have a review copy of What Would Mary Berry Do? but I just could not resist buying a finished copy as the cover is so pretty. Another book I just could not resist buying is The Day The Crayons Quit. I bought it for my niece but really it's for me :D I read it today and it's fantastic, so will have a review up for it soon.
I was thrilled to have been told I won a signed copy of The Atlas of Us. I saw the cover reveal a while back and just thought I have GOT to read that book, so I would have bought it anyway but was lucky to win a copy.

Right now back to reading :). Hope you have a lovely Sunday!


  1. Fantastic haul :)
    I have What Would Mary Berry Do too. Hope it's good!

  2. I love the cover of What Would Merry Berry Do? and The Day the Crayons Quit.....and Paper Swans. Enjoy your books! :)

  3. Great haul! Not really heard about most of those apart from Frozen which I have but just haven't gotten around to reading yet though. I hope you enjoy all your new reads :)

  4. So many good books! I'm watching TGBB for the first time with this season and I'm loving it! All the episodes make me so darn hungry!! Never heard of Paper Swans before but the cover is simply beautiful - I'll definitely be checking that out on Goodreads :)

    Check out my SS here!

  5. Ooooh I just finished The Good Girl. All I'm gonna say is the plot twist was somehow a "whaaat?!" It's a good read. I thought Frozen was meeh but that's just me, some people loved it. It's a hit or miss kind of book it seems. Enjoy your haul!

    My haul

  6. New theme my dear? I have not been on the blogosphere for a while but I am loving it! :)
    I have A Song for Ella Grey and Frozen on my kindle from Netgalley so we shall have to compare notes when I am done!

    Thanks for sharing & I hope you enjoy all of your books! :D

    Ps sorry I have not been around for a while! I have been busy with work! xo

    1. It is indeed! Thank you so much :) Ah great, will definitely compare notes as A Song For Ella Grey as had some quite bad reviews so far... No worries at all- I'm taking a blogging break from next Friday for just over a week- you definitely need it once in a while!

  7. Ooooh, lots of familiar titles! I got a copy of The Good Girl from Leah a while ago and heard lots of great things about the Jojo Moyes book too :) Hope you enjoy them and hope you've had a nice week so far! x
