And this week is the polar opposite to last week in which I was opening myself up to more chick lit: I suddenly got back into a fantasy mood and realised I had way too much chick lit. When will I learn, guys?
This week came the last trickle of the chick lit requests and a couple other surprises. Dan bought me my own copy of Me Before You when I wouldn’t shut up about it ♥. Second Last Woman in England was unsolicited but sounds quite interesting, it’s set during our Queen’s coronation and I believe it’s about a woman going up for execution at the same kind of time. The Peter Jones books, well I accepted How to Eat Loads a few weeks back as I am on a diet and I’m curious to see what these two have to say, he included How to Do Everything as well. The rest are the chick lits, all books I really want to read, just need to satiate my fantasy craving first, but I think I’ll start with Midsummer Magic, a book greatly influenced by Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Another one I should really mention this week: I GOT A NEW PHONE! You may notice from the quality of the picture. My dad still has my contract bill, so when he asked if I wanted an iphone (we’re on Virgin so can’t get iphones, I did explain this to him) I jumped at the chance. It’s a HTC Desire X and is already amazingly helpful, plus Candy Crush is bloody addictive isn’t it?
Ebooks For Review
See? I’m getting better. 🙂 The Returned I saw in one of NetGalley’s newsletters and it sounded fantastic so I went and requested.. it appears to be on NetGalley with one of the publishers I have auto accept with so here it is. I assume Harlequin. There’s a French show on Channel 4 at the moment with the same name and a very very similar premise which is unrelated. Very odd coincedence.. However! There is an adaptation of the book in production with ABC and some big names so that’s a cause for excitement. The French For Love came from Bookoutre earlier in the week, a chick lit set in France. Sounds lovely! Fade is one I’d been accepted for months ago on NetGalley from Curiosity Quills but for some reason never downloaded it, I don’t think they have a ‘send to Kindle’ button. I said as much in my feedback and they sent a Kindle copy over. And Rescue is one for ‘Clockwork Summer’ of which I’ll have details for very soon!
I didn’t look too hard this week because last week frightened me! 😛 Cupidity I am counting as a review copy technically, but it was a freebie and I think it might still be for today.
Anything here you’ve read and loved or picked up recently? Any of them particularly catch your eye? Do you have the number for a freebie addicts help center? Let me know in the comments!
