I started off the week by posting my reviews for The Hourglass by Tracy Rees and Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena. On Tuesday I joined in with the Top 5 Tuesday meme and on Wednesday I joined in with WWW Wednesdays! On Thursday I posted my publication day review of The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas, and on Saturday I shared my usual Stacking The Shelves post.
