Tynga's Reviews to showcase the books we got during the week. Those can be bought, gifted for review, borrowed... you name it.
Here's what I got this week:
William Shakespeare - Antony and Cleopatra. Edited by John Wilders.
Stacy Schiff - Cleopatra, A Life
Signed bookmark from Gretchen McNeil
I'm still on the book buying ban but growing ever more sick of it... I'm getting some reading done though, which is good. The books above don't count because they are for a university course on feminity, power, queenship, and glamour and how those concepts interrelate. I'm reading Stacy Schiff's book right now and I like her style a lot so far.
I got the bookmark for being in Gretchen McNeil's Army of Ten. Pity I'm not US-based or I could've done more to support the book and win awesome stuff! But I like signed bookmarks :) There's a design based on the Ten cover on the over side of it but I photographed it this way because of the signature. Which you probably can't see very well in the pic.
However, I did break tha ban after all. I preordered Venom by Fiona Paul because if you did that and signed up, you could get a Venom prequel novella for free. I couldn't possibly resist that...
Also, I got this one from NetGalley because it's on my TBR list and I read some good reviews of it. Also, it was downloadable without formally needing to be requested:
Gorgeous cover, right? You can check out the blurb here.
Also, I'm really sorry for the lack of reviews lately. I hope I can get back into the swing of things next week. I've been reading a lot and I have two NetGalley reviews to write, but I've just been feeling really unmotivated and lazy. Also, university and real life (lots of concerts I'm going to, meaning my evening is full and I have no time to blog) are keeping me busy...
Oh, and while you're here - check out my giveaway for the Spooktacular Hop if you haven't already ;)
Have you read any of the books on my pile? And what was in your haul this week?
