Inundated With Incomings (But I Like It)

Well after clearing out my study and spending hours sorting all the boxes of books I own guess what happens? Yes I get a deluge of deliveries from some wonderful publishers (Penguin, Bloomsbury and Random House) that has turned the house into even more of a library. Not that I am complaining mind, I am in fact incredibly pleased I just wont know where to start once I finish Pilcrow I have such a variety to chose from next it worries me, there is the promise of more on the way too. Now unlike last time I did an incoming blog, I am not going to give you the synopses of each book that has arrived as it would be go on and on and on, I am just going to give you a list as I will be reviewing them all anyway in the coming weeks…
