And this week is the polar opposite to last week in which I was opening myself up to more chick lit: I suddenly got back into a fantasy mood and realised I had way too much chick lit. When will I learn, guys?

Physical Pile

This week came the last trickle of the chick lit requests and a couple other surprises. Dan bought me my own copy of Me Before You when I wouldn’t shut up about it ♥. Second Last Woman in England was unsolicited but sounds quite interesting, it’s set during our Queen’s coronation and I believe it’s about a woman going up for execution at the same kind of time. The Peter Jones books, well I accepted How to Eat Loads a few weeks back as I am on a diet and I’m curious to see what these two have to say, he included How to Do Everything as well. The rest are the chick lits, all books I really want to read, just need to satiate my fantasy craving first, but I think I’ll start with Midsummer Magic, a book greatly influenced by Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Another one I should really mention this week: I GOT A NEW PHONE! You may notice from the quality of the picture. My dad still has my contract bill, so when he asked if I wanted an iphone (we’re on Virgin so can’t get iphones, I did explain this to him) I jumped at the chance. It’s a HTC Desire X and is already amazingly helpful, plus Candy Crush is bloody addictive isn’t it?

Ebooks For Review

The Returned by Jason Mott The French For Love by Fiona Valpy Fade by A.K. Morgen Rescue or, Royer Goldhawk's Remarkable Journal by Amy Leigh Strickland

See? I’m getting better. 🙂 The Returned I saw in one of NetGalley’s newsletters and it sounded fantastic so I went and requested.. it appears to be on NetGalley with one of the publishers I have auto accept with so here it is. I assume Harlequin. There’s a French show on Channel 4 at the moment with the same name and a very very similar premise which is unrelated. Very odd coincedence.. However! There is an adaptation of the book in production with ABC and some big names so that’s a cause for excitement. The French For Love came from Bookoutre earlier in the week, a chick lit set in France. Sounds lovely! Fade is one I’d been accepted for months ago on NetGalley from Curiosity Quills but for some reason never downloaded it, I don’t think they have a ‘send to Kindle’ button. I said as much in my feedback and they sent a Kindle copy over. And Rescue is one for ‘Clockwork Summer’ of which I’ll have details for very soon!

And Freebies

Lipstick and Lies by Debby Viggiano The First (a prequel) by Jason Mott Kindred by Erica Stevens Go Publish Yourself by Katie Salidas Heimskringla, Or The Chronicle Of The Kings Of Norway by Snorri Sturluson Cupidity by Holly Hepburn

I didn’t look too hard this week because last week frightened me! 😛 Cupidity I am counting as a review copy technically, but it was a freebie and I think it might still be for today.

Anything here you’ve read and loved or picked up recently? Any of them particularly catch your eye? Do you have the number for a freebie addicts help center? Let me know in the comments!
