Oops I did it again.......

  No, this isn't the start of a Britney fan posting, but it just applies rather nicely to my recent spate of acquiring new books for my already overburdened shelves.  And I was trying NOT to add to the collection ... honest!!!  Ok, I don't believe it either but I thought it might be worth a try!!

So let's get to it as I know that if you love books like me, then you love a good book haul! So here's the latest stash!!



Not bad eh!! Some were purchased by me, others I was lucky enough to win via Twitter or were sent to me from the publishers for review.



This Last Kiss by Madeleine Reiss  I was lucky enough to win a copy of this via a giveaway on Twitter.  Such an intriguing cover that I'm really looking forward to seeing if the insides match up!






BE FRANK WITH ME by JULIA CLAIBORNE JOHNSON   I received this out of the blue via the publishers, Corvus books, and it will be released on 4th August 2016.  I've already started reading this one and happy to report that the main character, Frank, is a total star and I'm really enjoying his story so far!



HIGH SEASON by NACHO FIGUERAS  Another lovely surprise in the post from the publishers, Allen & Unwin, and this is another book set for release on 4th August 2016.  Apparently should appeal to all fans of Jilly Cooper books, so i'm looking forward to starting this soon!




SEX OBJECT by JESSICA VALENTI

This was won by myself on Twitter on Thursday of this week as the lovely people at Harper 360 were running a competition for a copy of the book and a vest top, and I was lucky enough to be picked as one of the winners so my prizes arrived this morning.  Not my normal kind of read but I'm really interested to see what it has in store for me!



THE LOST SWIMMER by ANN TURNER   

This book was recommended to me quite a while ago now by a good friend in Australia, and she couldn't stop raving about this book so I have had it on pre-order for a while and it arrived this week so am intrigued as to what she has been raving about! no pressure!!




LAST NIGHT IN MONTREAL, THE SINGER'S GUN AND THE LOLA QUARTET by EMILY ST.JOHN MANDEL

After enjoying Station Eleven so much, I knew I had to complete the set of the authors' work so managed to find them all in various places so very excited to read more!



LILY AND THE OCTOPUS by STEVEN ROWLEY


This purchase was a case of being seduced by the cover, and then reading the blurb and knowing it would be a book I should love!! Apparently it is a bit of a weepie too so I will have my tissues ready to sob into when I start this hopefully soon!




AN ARTIST OF THE FLOATING WORLD BY KAZUO ISHIGURO

This is the result of wandering round the book aisle at a nearby supermarket! I've wanted to read more of this author and just couldn't resist this cover so I had to pick it up!


So that's it! Don't think I have anymore on order and am not planning anymore trips to the nearest booksellers anytime soon, so hopefully I can get through a few of these and add my reviews soon.  Has anyone read any of the above?  Looking forward to hearing if you have so I know which ones to bump up the TBR pile the quickest!!
