Apologies, The Transworld Book Group & UK and EU Summer Hop Winner!

Thanks to everybody who participated in this great event! I don't know about you, but I was so excited to go through a list of blogs and know that I wouldn't get to the end of the post just to realise I wasn't eligible to enter the giveaway! I had a great time, and found lots of great new blogs to follow. So here it is, the winner of an (almost) new copy of Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman's Good Omens iiiiiissss:


Also I just want to apologise for my absence from the blogosphere lately... My home internet is absolutely dead and we're not sure why at the moment, so I've not been able to post much. I have just discovered that Starbucks next to my work does have access, though, so hopefully I will be able to utilise that more often! I'm really behind on reviews, so I really hope I'm able to get back up to speed soon! 

Finally, and very excitingly, I'm taking part in the Transworld Book Group Challenge this summer. For this, I have to read four books between August and October, which I could choose from a big long list, and the lovely people at Transworld send me the books. All I have to do is review them and pass the link on to the publishers, and once I've done that I get the next book. It's brilliant! My four choices are:
  • The Sandalwood Tree by Elle Newmark (this is already on my bedside table, waiting for me to finish East of Eden, which should be sometime today!)
  • Black Swan Rising by Lee Carroll
  • Death Sentence by Mikkel Birkgaard (I really really enjoyed Library of Shadows, so I'm very excited about this)
  • The Obscure Logic of the Heart by Priya Basil
Look out for my reviews! :-)


  1. Congratulations to Judith :)

    I chose Black Swan Rising too, it arrived last week. I also chose... uh... some other books? :) It's a great idea, anyway.

    Did you end up finishing Good Omens?

  2. Not yet, I got distracted by reading East of Eden for the Classics Circuit tour later this month... And then I have the transworld book to read... Hopefully after that i'll be able to get back to it though!
