Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
Second Chance by Katie Kacvinsky  

Hello readers.  It's just me this week for Showcase Sunday, and I didn't get a big haul but I'm really excited about what I did get.  I've been lusting after All the Broken Pieces for a while now so I'm really excited to have the chance to read it! I read and reviewed Darkfever last week and I'm looking forward to continuing on with the series.  

You may have noticed Jasprit and I have been scarce this week on the blogs and on Goodreads.  This is because we're both on holiday right now.  We'll both be back and catching up with everyone Sunday/Monday.  Jasprit is in Prague (yes, I'm green with envy too!):

I'm in Sonoma, California right now, so I can't be too bitter! Here's some of my pictures so far: 




So enough about us!  What did you get this week?  Link us up and we'll come and check it out.

  1. Nice haul! :)
    And I hope Jasprit is enjoying Prague! It's a bit colder these days, but it's still lovely. :)

  3. YOU GUYS I AM SO JEALOUS! I am stuck in boring old New Jersey, as usual. I am expecting a HUGE post full of pictures of Prague and Sonoma later though so that I can live vicariously through you two! ;)

    Anyway, incredible book haul this week, ladies! I'm extremely curious about both Blind Spot and All the Broken Pieces, so I can't wait to see your final verdict on those two. I also JUST realized there was a sequel to First Comes Love and now I don't know whether or not to pick it up! I liked First Comes Love, but I wouldn't have minded if I never picked it up either. It felt too cheesy and the narration was off in some parts. I hope you enjoy the sequel though and manage to convince me to return to Gray and Dylan's romance! (I thinkk those are their names...) I hope you two have a fabulous week and enjoy your new lovelies!(:

  4. I hope you have lovely trips full of relaxation & comfort, you two! And Prague! I'm so envious, Jasprit. ;)

    The Fever series is fantastic, although I haven't completed it... yet. Blind Spot and All the Broken Pieces both look incredible as well! And such gorgeous covers... Great haul and happy reading! :)

    Can you delight us with more pictures of your trips when you come back, Jasprit and Rachel? Pwitty pwease? :D

    1. Hi Leanne and Keertana. I think Jasprit and I will do a holiday post to share some of our pictures. I know I can't wait to see hers! :)

      Keertana, I agree with your feelings on First Comes Love. I just finished it this morning and I'll be posting my review Tuesday, but the romance felt a little contrived. Not sure if I'll be picking up book two.

  6. I hope you are both enjoying your trips! It's currently raining here in London, so needless to say that I'm incredibly envious. ;) Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures.

    Nice haul this week, Rachel! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you think of All the Broken Pieces. I hope enjoy it as much as Demons of the Sun. :)

  7. You ladies are so lucky! I wish I could be in Prague with Jasprit, I'm sure she's having so much fun.
    Rachel, I'm so glad you liked Darkfever, I bet you'll love the rest of the series then. I struggled with the first book, but I later became addicted, hah.
    Blind Spot looks very intriguing as well, I can't wait to read your review. :)

  8. I'm so jealous of your vacation spots! Have a great time, ladies!

    I'm so excited about All the Broken Pieces, too. Cindi is a great writer and I love all of Entangled's books. I'm planning to start Darkfever at some point, b/c of your review.

    Enjoy the books!
