This week on Books, Biscuits, and Tea
This week was a pretty exciting one – I celebrated my 1 year blogoversary on Monday and throughout the week. Wahooo! I know it’s over but I’m still in a post-celebratory mood. I didn’t have much time for blogging because it was a super hectic week at uni, though, and I’m exhausted. I’ve tons of dramas, novels and various articles to read for next week so I don’t know how much time I’ll have for reading either. Anyway, if you have missed my posts this week, here’s what’s happened:
♦ I celebrated my first blogoversary on Monday and I’m having an international giveaway as well – make sure to check it out and enter if you haven’t entered yet.
♦ On Wednesday I posted about my best blogging related moments in the past 12 months
♦ And on Friday I answered all the questions you asked me last week in a blogoversary interview
The Confidant by Héléne Grémillon
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
Survive by Alex Morel
Once again, it was quite a slow week – I got a surprise on Monday, which is a paperback copy of The Confidant. It’s for review from the awesome people at Gallic Books – thank you! I also bought the new JKR book which I’m pretty excited about and Alex Morel’s Survive, which has been on my wishlist for ages. They’re both ebooks – normally I’d prefer paperbacks but since I’m rapidly running out of shelfspace and I’m always on the go these days, I decided to opt for the ebooks. Again, since uni books must be my number one priority right now, I don’t know when I’ll be able to read them but I’m really looking forward to it.
Oh, and I almost forgot – I’ve a great opportunity for you guys! Novel Publicity is currently recruiting for a gigantic whirlwind tour. Each of these whirlwind tours boasts hundreds of dollars in cash prizes and autographed books, sometimes even Kindle Fires. We provide eBook copies for all reviewers, but you don’t have to read the books in order to participate. We will provide your choice of a pre-formatted excerpt, interview, or guest post to make participation easy. We’d love to have you review them though, and that’s an option too! The blog tour in question is for a book called Love Comes Later. For more information and to sign-up, just visit the link here and fill-out the simple form.
