Showcase Sunday #35

Inspired by Celine from Nyx Book Reviews, I've decided to combine several weekly wrap-up memes into one post. Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea. Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga's Reviews, and Sunday Post is hosted at Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Letterbox Love is a special British book-haul meme hosted by Lindsey at Narratively Speaking.

I didn't do a Showcase Sunday last week, so this is for the past two weeks. It's been a busy time, but still managed to get in some fantastic books recently! Autumn is definitely here; there are orange leaves lining the roads, and it's starting to get a bit chilly now. That means it's time to start thinking about colourful scarves and jumpers, pumpkins, the Goose Fair, my husband's birthday, then my birthday eleven days after that, then Halloween ten days after that, and this year I'm going to World Fantasy Con Oct 31st - Nov 3rd, which I'm very excited about, and then after that... Christmas is on its way! I love this time of year. :-D

  2. Fall is here, finally! :D I love Fall though I prefer it drier and more colorful. Right now we have a big wet blob :(
    Hope you enjoy World Fantasy Con!
    I loved Wreck it Ralph, lovely movie.
    And I'll have to check out Snow Crash.
    Happy reading!

  3. I love this time of year as well - autumn and spring are definitely my favourite seasons. :) Although I could do without the 'getting chillier' bit - it's been so windy lately. Grrrrr.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy your new books - have a great week!

  4. I have been meaning to read Snow Crash for years.
