My exciting win, arriving just before Christmas was Troubadour by Mary Hoffman. I won this in a giveaway on the brilliant History Girls blog, which features daily posts from a crew of historical novelists writing for a range of age groups. I didn't know what I'd won (it was a pot luck thing), so I was thrilled to receive this, having had several of Hoffman's books on my wishlist for a while. I'm sure this will be the start of something!
Before Christmas, I downloaded several Kindle books by people I follow on Twitter or whose blogs I read. I'm looking forward to reading these, and all have been receiving rave reviews:
Mel Sherratt (who blogs at High Heels and Book Deals) has made her debut crime thriller, Taunting the Dead, available on Kindle. I really like the sound of this one and am excited at the possibility of beginning a new crime series.
