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.
Take Me There by Carolee Dean
Falling to Ash by Karen Mahoney
Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt
Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Thank you to Bloomsbury Teens on Facebook and Random House UK.
I’ve had some great luck recently winning some awesome books. I was lucky enough to win an Arc of Send Me a Sign which had been on my wish list for some time. It’s another cancer book; which I’m sure will suit my reading mood perfectly (I’ve found myself drawn to emotionally gritting reads that tend to take your heart out and stomp all over it lately). Also it’s been blurbed by Courtney Summers! So I just knew I had to pick this up asap.
Gone Girl has been receiving so many praising reviews over the last few months on Goodreads and over the blogosphere, that I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. Again I've heard it's a super tense read, I have my fingers crossed that I end up enjoying it too!
The Noughts and Crosses series by Malorie Blackman have been given a brand new look; I think they look amazing (you can check out all the brand new covers here). I’m always last to jump up on a bandwagon; (Noughts and Crosses was first published in 2001) so I thought it was high time that I jumped aboard.
Protecting Truth by Michelle Warren
Swell by Julie Rieman Duck
Thank you to Michelle Warren and Candace's Book Blog
These covers are so pretty, that I could probably sit and stare at them all day; I’ve also heard several promising things already about these books that I can’t wait to dive in! Also doesn’t the guy on the cover of Swell remind you a little of Jake Gyllenhaal? *sigh*
Let’s check out the awesome books Rachel received;
I didn’t get very many this week, but that’s a good thing because I’m really trying to catch up. Here’s what I did get:
Three River Ranch by Roxanne Snopek
Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Thank you to Harlequin UK Ltd, Entangled and Netgalley.
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs.
David Levithan is beyond hilarious and Rachel Cohn is very interesting and intelligent, so I’m excited to read their collaboration. Three River Ranch sounds just like my kind of sweet romance to take me away from it all. Sweet Venom was a freebie I heard about from a Goodreads friend and she said it was well worth the read. We shall see.
What goodies did you get in your showcase? Leave us a link and we'll stop by and check it out.
