July, the month of my birthday, has gone really fast. So here I am, one year older, and with many new books. As always, I will leave all the comics stuff to my blog with Fenrile, and will be displaying here only books and occasionally volumes and graphic novels.
And speaking of graphic novels, my month has started with this amazing graphic adaptation of one of my favorite short stories by Neil Gaiman, How To Talk To Girls At Parties.
And of course some more Neil Gaiman goodies… Including The Sleeper And The Spindle, and Neil Gaiman/Chris Riddell 3-Book Box Set: Coraline; The Graveyard Book; Fortunately, the Milk. So my TBR got (even) bigger, and my shelves prettier.
Then, my birthday came, and as I have mentioned already before, my boyfriend gave me this amazing gift: The four whole volumes of The Sandman, the annotated version – which is amazing by the way. I couldn’t recommend it enough, as a reread of course.
Still, for my birthday, I had the loveliest surprise from Lucky Dip Books – the book blind date service I have recently tried. I was so touched that they had sent me this lovely gift specially for my birthday and I’ll be sure to order again from them. Guys, this service is amazing, I recommend it to anyone who wants a little mystery book in their mail boxes, chosen, wrapped and sent with love. So this was the book I got, The City’s Son by Tom Pollock.
Review copies wise, I got this lovely autographed copy of The Dragon’s Blade by Michael R. Miller, which I thought was incredibly thoughtful. This book will now accompany me during my train trips, in hopes I can get to finish it and review it ASAP.
Let me know what you have added to your shelves this month of July!
