I’ve had a busy time on twitter recently, and as a result, I’ve had some exciting deliveries from my postie!
Firstly, I managed to win two twitter competitions! First up was a copy of Muddle Earth Too, signed by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell – I was going to give it to Amy, but it looks rather amusing, so I’ve ordered the first one, and have displayed it on my book shelf! Second was a signed copy of The Testimony by James Smythe. I’ve heard alot about it on twitter, so I’m looking forward to getting round to it.
Secondly, as mentioned in my previous post, I’m going to a YA event at Foyles on Saturday, to listen to Kimberley Derting, Tanya Byrne, James Dawson and Cat Clarke. I’d already read The Body Finder series by Kimberley Derting, and Tanya Byrne’s Heart-Shaped Bruise had already been sent as an early copy. Kimberley has a new series, so I decided to buy The Pledge – book 1!
I then decided I needed to try James Dawson’s Hollow Pike – and enjoyed it so much I bought a 2nd copy for a give away – books 2 and 3!
Finally, when Cat Clarke was added to the line up, I decided I really *had* to read Entangled and Torn (well, it’s only fair! ;)), plus I’ve ordered a second copy of Torn for another give away – books 4, 5 and 6!
Oh, and finally a publicist who shan’t be named (I’m looking at you, Sam Eades!) pointed out how good S.J.Bolton was.. so Now You See Me became book no. 7!
NO MORE BOOKS! (Until next time!)
PS See previous post for details of some of the authors mentioned, and the books hopefully going on the ‘signed books give away list’ 🙂
