Book parcels that make me squeak


I got two book parcels in the mail today which almost made me squeal with pleasure (almost - I was at work after all!)

The first was Catherine Fisher's Incarceron which has been loaned to me by the very kind Lady_Shrapnell of So Many Books.


I also got a signed copy of the ARC of Linda Buckley-Archer's The Tar Man as well. Of course this means I'll have to re-read Gideon the Cutpurse (I reviewed it last November) - which of course will be such a hardship ! (Jest)

Right now I'm finishing up Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse which is great - review to follow within the next couple of days.

Oh, I'm so jealous on both counts! Enjoy!

Envying you The Tar Man. And like you, I quite enjoyed The Titan's Curse. Congratulations on your book parcels.

That gnashing sound you hear is my teeth here in Texas, gnashing in jealousy over The Tar Man!!

Michele said...

Oh I like that I'm making people jealous for once, instead of being the jealous one... (I'm so cruel and hard-hearted !)

Lady S. said...

With a signed ARC for The Tar Man arriving the same day, I'm impressed you even noticed any other books! :)

I'm joining those from the other side of the Pond in the jealousy over The Tar Man, and looking forward to hearing how it is.

Michele said...

Ah well, Lady_S, I'm very good at noticing things, and especially books !!

I'm reading Incarceron right now (and very intrigued) - I'm deferring the pleasure of The Tar Man a little longer - which of course means you'll all have to wait a little longer for the review (does this constitute cruel and unusual punishment, I wonder ?)

Lady S. said...

Well... The quicker the review comes, the shorter time we've to wait for that, but then the longer the wait time for the book after your review. So the punishment is cruel either way but I'm not sure how to weigh the unusualness of each of the types of cruelty. :)

So jealous for The Tar Man...! Very cool for you, though.

Michele said...

Very cool indeed !
