Sunday Shout Out 28

Recently, I introduced a new feature here at In the Hammock on Sundays. It's called "Sunday Shout Out" and it's a place where I can give a special shout out to those publishers and authors who have sent me books over the week, as well as those bloggers who have hosted contests that I've won! I'll also be giving shout outs to any other cool books, blogs or bookish news that I've spotted during the week.

  4. The Best Man looks like a fun story. I read Let Them Eat Cake back when it was first published. I like the new cover! Swoon does look funny but the lady on the cover doesn't look in danger of falling for the gentleman (who looks kind of silly).

  5. Wow - you had a fantastic week. Since I read the Madman's Daughter I've been meaning to read some HG Wells.

  6. The Best Man looks cute, and the HG Wells one looks fascinating!

    Hope you enjoy everything :D

  7. Great books!! and the DVD, I remember you talked about it before. And the Swoon book sounds so good!! :D I hope you like it.

  8. HG & Steampunk illustrations? AWESOME.

  9. Thanks for including Cake in your haul. I'll be checking out some of the others myself!

  10. Nice haul. Happy reading!

  11. I have a steampunk Edgar Allen Poe book that is just gorgeous. Same illustrator. I guess it's a series.
