Not getting hardcover!

Yep, it's official.  I won't be getting the hardcover of Six of Crows.  After I updated you all on the news that Book Depository were sending the hardcover edition my way (so excited!), the next morning I got an email to say that there had been a mix up with the publishers/information - and the book I ordered was not supposed to be listed as a hardcover.  


So, I will be getting a refund instead.  I'm a tad miffed that I won't be getting the book in hardcover, but the trade is just as nice so I'll stick with that.

On the plus side, the staff at Book Depository were very quick to answer emails, and even emailed me back to update me on the mix up (and offered refund).  Thank you, Book Depository ;-D

Until next time,

Oh no, not again!

I can't believe that this has happened again!  Two weeks ago I ordered a hardcover copy of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.  Today the postman knocked on my door and handed me a Book Depository parcel and I was excited to finally have the book in my hands... that was until I ripped the box open.

There no hardcover!  I ended up with a trade paperback.  What is going on?  Has anyone else had this happen?  If so, let me know about it down below as I'm not a happy camper at the moment.


Emailed Book Depository yesterday and received an email to let me know that they have re-ordered
the hardcover and will be sending that to me!  So happy that I will get the hardcover ;-D

Until next time,

Should I give in to temptation?

Saw this gorgeous Frosty the Snowman teapot at a discount store that has popped up at my local shopping centre.  I find he is so cute, and I would love to have a Christmas teapot, however he is $45.

Let me know in the comments whether or not I should buy Frosty and give him a home?

Until next time,
