Goodie Basket (54): Weekly Book Haul and Blog Recap

Goodie a weekly feature hosted here at Word Spelunking that showcases all the goodies (books, bookish things, reviews, interviews/giveaways/guest posts, blog tours, etc) that popped up in the Goodie Basket that is Word Spelunking each week.

(This meme is inspired by other book haul memes such as In My Mailbox hosted by  The Mod Podge BookshelfStacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea and Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer )

Since one of the things I love even more than books is my niece, Aeicha, you'll have to forgive me as I once again share the adorableness that is her (sorrynotsorry)...

Sea Change sounds and looks really neat! And OOH. I didn't realize JSW's new book was on NetGalley...until JUST NOW. I saw it when I was browsing but I didn't notice that's what it was until I saw it in your post. Hope you enjoy the books, girl, and give the baby a hug from me. :D
