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.
Hello lovelies how’s everyone’s week been so far? Rachel and I have had a few crazy weeks since we last did our showcase with being sick, long work hours and unpredictable weather driving us insane. But with the Christmas break just around the corner we can’t complain. Also we received some pretty neat books to cheer ourselves up with.
Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black
He's Gone by Deb Caletti
Out of Reach by Carrie Arcos
Who I Kissed by Janet Gurtler
Thank you Bloomsbury UK, Sourcebooks, Simon & Schuster and Random House.
Live Through This by Mindi Scott
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I read Lola and the Boy Next Door with Sam and seriously it was just what I needed. It was cute, light and so funny I had a big goofy grin on my face! Perkins sure knows how to write a book which leaves you with warm fuzzies! I CAN'T wait for the release of Isla and the Happily Ever After. Mindi Scott’s Live Through This has been on my wish list for a while, the early reviews have so far been really promising and look at the cover it’s so gorgeous! A big thank you to you Sam for sending it to me for my birthday! You rock!
I don’t normally have much luck with Edelweiss, but this week I was so so happy to receive He’s Gone. It’s been described as “intensely gripping story of love and secrets, marriage and loss”. Caletti is one heck of a talented author so I can’t wait to get started! I also had some great luck with NetGalley this week too; I received another two books on my wish list; Dance of Shadows and Who I Kissed. Honestly with this awesomeness I don’t know where to begin!
Over to Rachel to see the pretties she received.
Well this week has been sort of quite for review copies. I haven’t been requesting as many and trying to catch up.
Dizzy by Jolene Perry and Nyrae Dawn
Wild Encounter by Nikki Logan
A big thank you to Entangled, Netgalley, Jolene Perry and Nyrae Dawn!
My Favourite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron
First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones
Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot
Just For Now by Abbi Glines
I’m so excited to read Dizzy. It’s an antagonistic relationship that turns into, I hope, a romance, one of my favorite types. I bought quite a few books, probably more than I have listed here. I bought First Grave on the Right because I’m listening to it on a borrowed audio (thanks Arlene @Winterhaven Books!) and I want my very own copy! I can’t wait to read Unmaking Hunter Kennedy. I loved Almost by the same author and loved it, and the cover is just *sigh*!
