Lucky Book Lotto

As some of these have been languishing on my shelf and kindle for over a year (yes, really) I have written them all down, cut them out, folded them up and put them in a little cup. I shall pick one at random until they are all gone… I can almost taste your cynicism at this plan. If it makes you feel any better I’m not convinced either.



  • Books marked * were gifted from publishers/ authors, or are from Netgalley.
  • Those marked ** were gifts from bloggers & friends.
