Weekly roundup: Showcase Sunday #3

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

Just one book this week, Follow The Blue by Brigid Lowry, which I borrowed from the library.

The turtle's name is Nora. She lives with Eddie the dolphin, Alan the shark and Rory the triceratops at the end of the bed.
I was away this week, but managed to finally catch up on some blog reading over the weekend. I also did quite a bit of reading throughout the week: I finished Avalon High by Meg Cabot, and started and finished Agatha Christie's Cat Among The Pigeons

I have also (finally) re-opened my copy of A Feast for Crows, book #4 of A Song of Ice and Fire, which I put to one side a few weeks ago when I was battling against a big deadline and had no brain power left come the evening. Hopefully I can enjoy the adventures of Westeros more fully now a long weekend is stretched out in front of me!

I also read Timothy Corrigan's American Cinema of the 2000s, for a review that is pending for the academic journal I am editor of.

Reviews posted this week:
E. Lockhart, Fly On The Wall (7/10)
Meg Cabot, Avalon High (3/10)

What's been on your reading radar this week?

  2. Hope you enjoy A Feast for Crows. It was my least favourite of the series so far but brilliant nonetheless. Hope you enjoy it! :) Happy Reading!

  3. Follow the Blue looks really good. A small haul is good for catching up on other books ;)

    Drop by my Showcase Sunday?

  4. Follow the Blue doesn't seem like my cup of tea but I'll have to admit, the cover looks adorable! Any book with mermaids sound good :)

    I love turtles too, but I adore octopuses even more. I have 3 octopuses on my bed :D

    If you are looking for some new reads, drop by my very first giveaway *urges*. There are 16 titles up for grabs :) Hope to see you there!

  5. I love the turtle! Looks like he's in good company too (:

  6. Aww cute I love Nora!!! <3

  7. Cat Among The Pigeons is such a great book! I read it twice and I thoroughly enjoyed it :) Nora is such a cutie, by the way :) x
