Latest Acquisitions (September – October 2014)

A handful of books today. Some you’ll see on the blog soon, others in a few months.

Book cover

Davina Blake: Past Encounters – This was one of the books I read for the Readathon, something just drew me to it and it’s fantastic. Although I’ve already read it, I’ve included it here because I’m not due to review it until December and that’s too long when you’ve loved a book.

Book cover

Elise Alden: Pitch Imperfect – Whereas my first thought was that ‘pitch’ would refer to sports, it turned out this book includes music and that’s something I love to read about.

Book cover

Kate Riordan: The Girl In The Photograph – I received a heads up from the publisher about this being available on Netgalley. No estimate yet for when I’ll be reading it but the release date is in January so hopefully I’ll get to it in time for that.

Book cover

Marc Pastor: Barcelona Shadows – I haven’t much of an idea what this is about but it’s published by Pushkin Press (who published The Rabbit Back Literature Society I reviewed on Monday) and it’s translated fiction.

Book cover

Robin Ince and Johnny Mains (ed.): Dead Funny – I’m not sure I’ll get to this in time for Halloween and I think a few people may be interested. Short horror/comedy stories by a variety of British comedians including Al Murray and Phil Jupitus.

What/which books have you bought/loaned/been sent recently?

What a lovely selection!

I’ve not picked up anything since my Books Are My Bag shopping trip, which is probably for the best as I have loads to read.

Interesting selection. I am particularly interested to hear more about Dead Funny. As for myself I am trying to keep my new acquisitions down but I just had to get a copy of Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier when I saw it in my favourite second hand shop.

I didn’t know any of them, but “Past encounters” sounds good. Looking forward to your review :)
