FROM SIMON AND SCHUSTER:
'Granny Chic' by Tif Russel & Rachel Blondel
-I almost forgot about the request I made for this review book and was so surprised to see it in the mail. Surprised and delighted. It's a non-fiction crafty book with a few ideas for sewing/knitting/crochet etc in the home. I just can't wait to try out some of these cool ideas!
'Bitter Blood' (Morganville Vampires Book #13) by Rachel Caine
- This is a series I've been wanting to read, but haven't gotten into. So, you can see I didn't request this one. I guess I'll just have to hold onto it until I've read enough to review it?
FROM PAN MACMILLAN:
'Echo' by Alyson Noel
-I thought that 'Fated' was a good novel. It wasn't fantastic, but it was a lot better than 'Evermore'. I'd like to see where the author can take this series.
'The Skeleton Key' (Pandora English #3) by Tara Moss
-Another series I've been meaning to read. Guess I'll have to wait until I can read those ones too.
Every now and then I buy a stack of books from this site as a gift to myself (as if I don't already have enough stuff). This purchase was a late birthday present to myself (my birthday was in September) and there are a few things still to turn up.
'The Awakening' (Darkest Powers #2) by Kelley Armstrong
'Dash and Lily's Book of Dares' by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
'Witches of East End' by Melissa de la Cruz
'The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making' by Catherynne M. Valentine
-It would have to be one of the longest book titles I have ever seen. I know it's a middle grade book, but it looked so good and it was only $7 dollars. I thought it was worth a try.
'The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight' by Jennifer E. Smith.
'Sweetly' by Jackson Pearce
Finally I've bought one of her books! This one is a retelling of Hansel and Gretel
'Orchids on Your Budget' by Majorie Hillis
-It's a non-fiction book about budgeting, written in 1937. Apparently it's still pretty relevant today.
'Style Me Vintage: Look Book' by Naomi Thompson, Belinda Hay and Katie Reynolds
-It's a bind-up of three other books of the same title. One focuses on Hair, one focuses on Clothes and the other Make-up. It works out cheaper than buying the books individually.
'Minxy Vintage' by Kelly Doust
-Another non-fiction. I wrote a review on it already.
'The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-57' Edited by Claire Wilcox
-I think the title speaks for itself
'The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer' by Emily Winfield Martin
-I just love making paper dolls out of old fashion magazines, so I thought I'd try crafting some of my own with the help of this book.
I just can't seem to stay away from this place...
'What on Earth Are You Wearing' by Michi Girl
-two scarves I bought (even though winter is far far away)
-pin wheel earrings, a cassette necklace, quotation mark earrings and pearl/knot studs
FROM JB HIFI:
'The Audrey Hepburn Story' (DVD)
'A Very She and Him Christmas by She and Him (CD)
I also bought various tube skirts, scallop tops, cardies in various shades (they've been mentioned in previous posts).
What did you get in the mail this week?
