Weekly round up: Showcase Sunday #4

Once again, I'm linking up with Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea this week, to take part in Showcase Sunday!


My friend's dad lent me two books: Bill Bryson's The Lost Continent: Travels in Small Town America, and Terry Pratchett's The Wee Free Men. I am pretty new to Terry Pratchett, after borrowing Equal Rites from another friend a few months ago, but I enjoyed my first foray into the Discworld and am excited to read more!

I have read some Bill Bryson before, but it's a long time ago. As someone whose entire academic life thus far (and it's been a long time, guys) has revolved around the United States, and having spent a year living in the States, it's always nice to visit it again through someone else's eyes. I have had a hankering to delve back into travel writing lately, and have just discovered Summersdale Books' range of travel publications, some of which I have my eye on! 

Reviews posted this week:

Agatha Christie - Cat Among The Pigeons (9/10)

Upcoming reviews: I have reviews of A Feast For Crows by George R. R. Martin coming up this week, as well as a review of Sarah Dessen's Just Listen.

Happy reading!


  1. I haven't read any Bill Bryson so it'll be good to see your review.

    And I can't imagine trying to review AFFC or any of that series, I'd get lost but I am really looking forward to reading what you think of the book!

  2. The Lost Continent sounds really good! I haven't read anything by this author (yet) but I love books that centre around travelling. It must be a great read!

  3. Looks like great books! Hope you enjoy them. :D

    Here's my Showcase Sunday!

  4. I don't know them, but I'll check them on Goodreads (oh, how I love that website)

    Happy reading ^^

  5. Lovely haul! I think I have few books by Terry Pratchett left untouched in my house LOL! The covers of his books somehow creep me out. :P But I hope you'll have fun reading it! The Lost Continent sounds very interesting too. <3

    Happy reading! :)

  6. You've tackled the George RR Martin books? Those scare the crap out of me--don't have the time to invest in those and oh my god, the million characters to follow just for them to get killed off! Enjoy your books!

  7. Ooo I am excited that you're from the UK! I didn't know this- I am too! Yayyy! I LOVE Pratchett- I'm currently reading an ARC of 'The Long Earth' which I was JOYOUS to receive and I am liking it so far! x
