Showcase Sunday #8: Lolito by Ben Brooks

Lolito by Ben Brooks

Showcase Sunday is hosted by the lovely Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea. It's a chance for bloggers to show of their weekly book swag and an opportunity to meet other bloggers and talk about all things bookish!

Happy Easter Sunday everybody! What's everybody been getting up on this lovely long weekend? I visited Worcester yesterday with my boyfriend for this year's Record Store Day and on Good Friday I went to the Sea Life in Birmingham and took a selfie with a penguin! As you do...

This week's Showcase Sunday is considerable smaller than last week's sizeable offering. There's something special about this book though. A few weeks ago I was approached by anonymous blogger, The Girl in the Moonlight. We've spoken quite a few times on our blogs and on Twitter and struck up a friendship, so I was really glad when I received her email.

She suggested that it would be fun for us to read the same book, one we haven't read before, and then review it. I've always loved how personal books can be and how people perceive things differently - so, we thought we'd conduct a little experiment.

After discussions through email, we decided on Lolito by Ben Brooks. This book is an adaption of Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov and I've had my eye on it since Carrie Hope Fletcher suggested it in one of her videos. I'm really looking forward to arranging a time for our joint post, and glad I've gotten an excuse to pick up this book! 

What's everybody up to today? I'm having a nice relaxing day with my mom and boyfriend. Pyjamas, films, board games and cheese! How about you?
