Weekend Book Buzz – 10/11 June 2017

Weekend Book Buzz

Greetings from Melbourne, book lovers! It is much colder here, 1,000km south of our home, but we have been blessed with beautiful sunshine for the most part, even if there’s a definite chill in the air. Of course, being on holidays has meant less time for blogging this week, and you will notice there’s been less happening around here, but I have still been having some bookish fun, especially meeting up with Rel from Relz Reviewz at Koorong, Australia’s largest Christian bookseller:

Rel and Katie

We may have spotted some familiar faces on the shelves, too:

But there’s been plenty of other stuff happening this week, especially if you love cover reveals! So let’s get buzzing!
