Showcase Sunday #21

This week on Books, Biscuits, and Tea

I’ve had quite an exhausting first week at uni but thank God I’ve no classes on Mondays so I’ll have some time to catch up with blogging and reading at weekends. :) As for posts,

♦ I posted about going back to university on Monday and explained why I won’t be around as much as I used to
♦ On Wednesday, I posted a pre-blogoversary interview in which you get to interview me (you still have time to send in your questions – I’ll answer them next week)
♦ And I reviewed Marian Keyes’ newest book, The Mystery of Mercy Close on Friday.

Incoming books

Deon Meyer books

Dead Before Dying by Deon Meyer
Dead at Daybreak by Deon Meyer
Heart of the Hunter by Deon Meyer
Devil’s Peek by Deon Meyer
Blood Safari by Deon Meyer
Thirteen Hours by Deon Meyer
Trackers by Deon Meyer

I received an enormous box of books the other day, filled with a set of Deon Meyer books. Hodder & Stoughton had a competition going on on their website and I was one of the lucky winners. I still can’t believe it!! The crime fiction fan in me wants to put everything aside and start reading them right now but I still have quite a lot of review copies to read first, so they’ll have to wait… Has anyone read anything by Meyer? His books have been on my wishlist for a while but I haven’t managed to read any of his books yet. They sound great, though! I can’t wait to read them. :) And again, a massive thank you goes to Hodder for sending me this set. Thank you, thank you!

What have you been up to this week? Have you got anything nice? Make sure to link up your own Showcase Sunday post in the linky below and feel free to leave a comment after linking up. See you all tomorrow!

    Firstly, congratulations on your prize. I can imagine that you’re going to be very busy reading all them.

    I haven’t read any of Meyer’s books and I look forward to seeing your reviews. (It’s good that not only do you win books, but also books that you’ve been looking to read).

    Enjoy. :)

    I’m so jealous :) Deon Meyer is great writer. I’ve read only “13 hours” and I must say it is an amazing thriller. I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading. Expecting reviews.

  33. Katja says:

    Not come across the author before, but I guess that’s unsurprising when most of the crime fiction I read was in my teens and came from Agatha Christie :)
    Look forward to your thoughts on them.
