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.
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The Diviners by Libba Bray
House at the End of the Street by Lily Blake
Thank you Atom Books.
Only four books in my showcase this week, but books I’m super excited about. Jenny Han is one of my all the time favourite authors, so I was thrilled to get a copy of her latest book with Siobhan Vivian. I’ve heard mixed reviews so far, some unsure about the paranormal element and the ending. So I’m hoping this book will work out for me.
The Diviners and House at the End of the Street will make my creepy reads for October. Both are quite different to the types of books I normally read. But as of late I found myself having success with books falling typically out of my favourite genres. The 600 pages of the Diviners and the trailer for House at the end of the Street I’m going to try and not focus on too much when picking these up.
Ruta Sepetys is another author I’ve heard non-stop praising reviews about and just having a quick look over the reviews on Goodreads (she has 6173 five star ratings for this book alone) so I knew it was one I couldn’t miss out on.
Over to Rachel to see the goodies she received.

Jenny Pox by JL Bryan
Well I got more than I counted on these last two weeks. I’m currently reading Falling by Jolene Perry, and really enjoying it. It falls into the “New Adult” genre that I’ve had great success with lately. I requested Blood Prophecy book six in the Drake Chronicles, a seriously fun and witty series! I think I’m two books behind, but this doesn’t release until January, so I have some time. I ordered some audio CD’s of the urban fantasy series, Fever; I started last month because I wanted to make use of the 45minutes-1 hour drive I make in my commute each day back and forth to work. It’s the only way to increase my reading time without cutting into my sleep anymore than I already do! These aren’t review books so I’m listening/reading them purely for pleasure.
We can't wait to dive into our pile of lovelies, we'd love to know which goodies you received too, leave us a link and we'll stop by and check it out.
