Parcels and intriguing packaging

Post by Maryom!!!

 We're just back from a fortnight's holiday in Scotland which included calling in at the Edinburgh Book Festival.
Waiting for our return, in amongst the junk mail, were interesting looking parcels - books!
We don't normally get lots delivered at one time so there's no debate about which to open first
but
 when most come in slightly dull jiffy bags or cardboard folders
 
 the interesting ones jump the queue....


 In a shiny metallic green bag was a copy of Shadows by Ilsa J Bick - the much awaited follow-up to Ashes.





 But most intriguing of all was the silver shiny parcel with a book wrapped in tissue paper...




 .....with sparkly 'gems'...
 What was inside?


The Wolf Princess by Cathryn Constable


 ...and if you want to know what it's about....

here's the cover blurb. Certainly one I'm looking forward to reading.
