Here are the books that made their way to our homes this week, either bought, borrowed, gifted or for review.



Alnwick Castle Event

On Wednesday and Thursday I (Vicki) found myself staying over here (as you do...)


In what was without doubt the best blogger event imaginable, to celebrate the upcoming launch of Nightshade, second book in The Poison Diaries series. More about the event coming up in a post very soon, but here's the awesome goody bag we came away with which included a copy of Nightshade by MaryRose Wood, A Poison Diaries guide to the beautiful castle, pen, memory stick, badge and a packet of Poppy seeds. The personalised visitor pass and dinner menu also shown, as well as a few souvenirs I couldn't resist..a signed copy of The Poison Diaries, A STUNNING illustrated hardback book (also signed), an Alnwick castle bookmark, and as this castle also featured as Hogwarts in the 1st two Harry Potter movies (I stayed over at HOGWARTS!), a mini Hedwig and Hermione's wand (the last two bought for my 6 year old daughter...honestly!)


Truly the best week EVER, I'm still finding it hard to believe it actually happened!
