Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea. The aim is to showcase our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders this week.
With a crazy couple of weeks (work, excitement over the Olympics and awesome author events) we didn’t get time to get a showcase Sunday post together. So again we have an awesome 3 week edition for you.
Speechless Hannah Harrington
Stormdancer Jay Kristoff
What's Left of Me Kat Zhang
Unbreak My Heart Melissa Walker
Thank you to NetGalley, Edelweiss, Harlequin, St. Martin's Press and HarperCollins
I’ve had a super few weeks acceptance-wise on NetGalley and Edelweiss, normally I’m rejected all over the place. Speechless, Stormdancer and What’s Left of Me were books I couldn’t wait to read, so I was over the moon when I was accepted. Unbreak My Heart has been on my wish list ever since I heard about it, with a read-athon just around the corner I thought I’d treat myself to a copy.
Rebel Heart Moira Young
Ocean of Secrets Aimee Friedman
League of Strays L.B. Schulman

Saving Grace J.M Hill
Speechless Hannah Harrington
Thank you to Edelweiss, Netgalley, Tor Books, Harper Teen, J.M. Hill, Del Rey, Entangled Teen, and Harlequin Teen for providing me copies. I’m really excited for Speechless because I loved Saving June.
Cursed Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Gorgon in the Gully Melina Marchetta
My lovely friends lent me these copies! Alexa from Collections lent her copy of Cursed to me. I’ve been dying to get my hands on it since I saw it was by JLM. So I could’ve kissed Alexa when she offered it to me. Our friend Arlene from Winterhaven Books lent me The Gorgon in the Gully which is the only Melina Marchetta book out that I haven’t read. I’m so excited to read that, because it’s about Jonah Griggs’ (from On the Jellicoe Road) little brother, Danny.
While it Lasts Abbi Glines
Crash Nicole Williams
First Comes Love Katie Kacvinsky
The Girl of Fire and Thorns Rae Carson
Junk Miles Liz Reinhardt
Slow Twitch Liz Reinhardt
The Sweet Gum Tree Katherine Allred
I bought Junk Miles and Slow Twitch of the Brenna Blixen series because I have the first one, and I was alerted on Twitter they were on sale for .99 cents a piece on Amazon. I snatched them up because I’ve heard good things about the series. Same thing with The Girl of Fire and Thorns, I saw it was at a bargain price on Amazon, marked down to $2.99 so I couldn’t resist! I love the cover on First Comes Love, and after Eunice’s lovely review I couldn’t help myself! Crash is a self-pub that’s burning its way through Goodreads with 5 star reviews. I’m hearing it being compared to Beautiful Disaster and Perfect Chemistry, so I can’t wait to read that!
Again we have another enormous stack of lovely books to get through. We'd love to know what goodies you received. Leave us a link and we'll check it out.
