Only three books this week – but all ones I have been lusting over for a while!

  • 1000 Places to see before you die by Patricia Schultz
  • Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
  • Fallen by Lauren Kate
I had planned on getting Fallen in hardcover, but needed a third book for my 3 for 2!  But the binding is excellent for a paperback – which I usually find is the case for UK paperbacks.  And 1000 places(…) is brilliant – although it is heavily slanted toward Europe and the US.  It also chooses some places that are laughably touristy (ie. best place to go in the Dominican Republic is a hotel… WTF?)  But still a great book if you don’t take it as gospel!
