I haven’t done a book haul post in a while and even though I haven’t received a lot of books lately, I thought it would be fun to highlight what has been added to my TBR pile. Rachel Neumeier and I were chatting about some of our favorite comfort reads and she mentioned Gillian Bradshaw.
I’ve never read any of Gillian Bradshaw’s novels and Rachel very generously offered to send me one of them. Because she’s so nice, she threw in a copy of one of her books and I received a lovely package containing these:
The Floating Islands by Rachel Neumeier
The Beacon at Alexandria by Gillian Bradshaw
Here’s a funny story, I gave my office address to Rachel because it’s easier to receive packages in the office. If a package doesn’t fit in the mail slot for our flat, I’d be given a slip and I have to pick the package up from the post office (which only has extended hours on Wednesday nights). So it’s more convenient to use my office address, but I had to give my full name and Rachel signed the book with both my nickname and full name:
Can I just say that getting packages in the office considerably brightens up my day? Even better when a co-worker mentioned that it’s cool that I get packages with books inside them. I have to agree that it’s pretty awesome. Thank you SO much for these, Rachel. I look forward to reading them! I’ve also been approved for some titles on NetGalley, which is note-worthy since my requests usually get rejected.
Flirting With Disaster by Ruthie Knox
Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess
The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand
I’ve read all of Ruthie Knox’s novels and I haven’t reviewed any of them on my blog. I really should work on that. I’m looking forward to Brooklyn Girls since I enjoyed reading A Girl Like You by the same author. If you’ve been following my blog for some time, then you would know that I haven’t stopped talking about Laura Florand since I discovered her work and it’s not surprising that I was super excited to receive The Chocolate Touch. I’ve been waiting for it to go up on NetGalley for weeks now. Thank you, NetGalley and publishers, for giving me access to these titles!
I devoured The Chocolate Touch as soon as I could and I just finished reading it tonight. Hopefully, I can review it soon. Last but not the least, here are some postcards that I’ve also recently received:
