My ‘Weekly Roundup’ is where I share the books I have received in the past week, whether bought, gifted, borrowed etc.
I’m back from York! I had a great time staying with my friend, and I didn’t buy any books! I almost bought a book on Roman Britain in the Yorkshire Museum, but I kind of have enough of those already so managed to stop myself…
- Elantris by Brandon Sanderson – I won Anya’s Brandon Sanderson giveaway, and chose Elantris as my prize as I felt like a standalone rather than a series – I have too many series to catch up with at the moment. Thank you Anya!
- Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield – this is the first First Reads book that I’ve won in a year, so thank you Goodreads for this one.
And just a couple of things I bought in York…
Delicious strawberry and lychee tea from the Hebden Tea Company.
A York Lucky Glass Cat! They have different colours depending on your birth month. From York Glass.
