Check out Showcase Sunday over on Books, Bisuits and Tea.

For Review:

Far From You by Tess Sharpe (proof) - Yes, I did include this in my First Class Post post last week. But that copy was one I borrowed from work. However, as I wasn't sure if I'd read it before I was due to return it, I requested my own copy. This is it. I've now read this book - amazing! See below for my review!

The World Girlfriend in the World by Sarra Manning (proof) - It's Sarra Manning. She is awesome. I need to read more of her novels. What more is there to say?

Thanks to Indigo and Atom for the review copies.

Review Copy Cleanup 2014

Wonder by R. J. Palacio Far From You by Tess Sharpe

This week I have read 3 review copies, which brings my total for the RCCleanup up to 9. I've done as well as the previous two weeks, which I'm pretty surprised about as I've been away visiting family, so I'm pretty pleased! I read Wonder by R. J. Palacio at long last - I've had it for quiiiite a while. It was a good book, but sadly I didn't really love it. Expected it to be a lot better than it was. I also read Far From You by Tess Sharpe, which was a whole lot better than I expected! Really amazing story! I'd highly recommend it. And I read Alex As Well by Alyssa Brugman (not pictured as the UK jacket image isn't yet available). Really good book about an intersex character. In some ways a little lighter than other books about intersex characters I've read. Quick too! My review will either come soon or in May when the book is published, depending on the publishers.

  1. Wow, you're doing so well! I'm reading my third book at the moment :( February was even busier than I thought...
    Really glad to hear that you enjoyed your books so far, though! Good luck for the rest of the month, hope you manage to squeeze a few more books in. x

  2. I am surprising myself at how fast I'm getting through books! I do work part time, though, and I'm only reading review copies, specifically for the challenge, so nothing else. But still, I seem to be reading at quite a speedy pace this year! :)
    Think I might manage one or two more books before February's out. Here's hoping! :)
