Kind of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox, but with some other bits thrown in too.
I think we can say, in terms of blogging, this has been slow, but in terms of getting stuff...well, I got a lot this week. Let's see....
Well, there's what can only be described as pure awesomeness from Stephanie at Stepping Out of the Page. Bookmarks, Potter postcards, and a pretty bracelet? THANK YOU STEPHANIE.
Then there's the stuff from authors and publishers and so on. Big thanks to Andrew Carlson, who sent me a copy of Sue's Vision (the sequel to Sue's Fingerprints, which earnt strength 5 tea-review here!), to Spinebreakers who sent me a copy of The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg, and to Faber and Faber who sent me a copy of The Fury by Alexander Gordon Smith.
And finally, there's my library stash. Which was originally just Ashes, by Isla J Bick. And then I went to Winchester Discovery Centre. And I just had to pick up Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday, Intertwined by Gena Showalter, and Crossing Overr by Anna Kendall. Well, I didn't have to. I did.
I think we can safely say, I won't be bored this half term.
And in news....
The blog tour for Witchblood by Emma Mills is coming by on Tuesday (aka Valentines Day. But we don't celebrate that here), so expect a review and a giveaway!
Strange Chemistry have signed Jonathan L Howard! Katya's World looks really interesting....
I got my book club hooked on Goodreads! Well, just the librarian and The Squeaky One, but still....now they know! And my librarian is campaigning to get Goodreads accessible from school.... I can see that working. Not.
I have a poll up in the top left hand corner. It's about what I should be posting, because I sometimes get totally stuck for ideas. So, if you could please just tell me what you want to be seeing here, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
WE'VE BEEN BLOGGING FOR NEARLY A YEAR. I can't believe it either.... Well, on the blogoversary, there'll be a big, international giveaway. Or maybe more. But, please spread the word that Death Books and Tea's blogoversary will (hopefully) be awesome.
That's all. Enjoy life xxx.
