Perfect by Rachel Joyce:
I got this to review from the publishers via NetGalley. Rachel is the bestselling author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, which I've been meaning to read for quite some time, and I've heard it's an excellent adult contemporary read - really heart-warming and beautiful. So I need to get around to that. And this new book sounds just as good, so I'm really looking forward to reading it!

A Study in Silks by Emma Jane Holloyway:
This is another I picked up from the publisher via NetGalley. It's Sherlock Holmes mixed with steampunk and a feisty female protagonist (the niece of Sherlock himself, no less!) ... what could be better?! I'm really looking forward to reading it!

Great new books...I hope you enjoy them. I also have a copy of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry that I've yet to read. Based on your comments, I'm going to dig it out and place it closer to the top of the TBR pile.

Here's my book haul: http://www.bookclublibrarian.com/2013/05/sundays-weekly-book-recap-19.html

Sort of want to read The Rosie Project and Perfect but so many books....I know I can't read everything! You've reminded me that I must read the sequel to Wool soon too. *flails*

I have that hardback of Wool and I agree it is so pretty. That plug thing is so weirdly cool and that book looks strange but fascinating also! Great haul Dani, enjoy Hay on Wye tomorrow :)

The Spindlers is such a cute book. I missed the drawings like Liesl & Po, but it was fun. Happy reading!
