Showcase Sunday #27


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.

Hi everyone, I hope you've all had a fabulous couple of reading weeks, it's been a while since we last posted our Showcase Sunday post, but I've still be doing great in terms of holding back on requesting review books. Out of my haul only two were actual review copies! This is what I received.



Thank you to Macmillan Children's and Disney Book group.

Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts | Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein | Parallel by Lauren Miller | In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters | Over You by Emma Mclaughlin & Nicola Kraus | Underworld by Meg Cabot

Tumble & Fall I had been immensely excited about, it looks and sounds absolutely amazing. And after devouring Code Name Verity last year, I had to see what Wein had in store for us next. Parallel and In the Shadow of Blackbirds had been receiving some amazing reviews in the last few weeks, that I finally caved and decided I needed to know what the hype was about. Over You is a book that I've had my eye on for sometime and when I saw it up for a really good deal I was quick to snatch a copy and finally Meg Cabot's Abandon series, it feels like ages ago that I picked up the first book, so I'm excited to dive back in.

Lets see what Rachel received over the last few weeks.




Thank you to Grand Central Publishing, HarperCollins, HarperTeen, Atria Books, William Morrow, Entangled Teen, Hatchette Book Group, Netgalley, and Edelweiss. 




There are so many greats here, I need to pinch myself! I’m giddy over This Girl by Colleen Hoover, Full of Grace by Misty Provencher, and Darkouse by Karina Halle. She wrote Sin’s & Needles which was instantly a favorite for me! 

We would love to see what books made it to your haul this week, leave us a link in the comments below and we will be over soon to check it out!

  1. Jasprit, I just LOVED In the Shadow of Blackbirds, so I'm really excited you'll be reading it. I'm also so excited to see what you think of Rose Under Fire - I don't have the time for it, but I hope it's as good as CNV.

    Rachel, I've been meaning to read so many of the books you picked up this week! I snagged Darkhouse for free on Amazon and am waiting to read Game and The Coincidence... since I hear they have cliffhangers. I can't wait to see what you make of them, though, and I hope they're as good as the hype promise! Lovely haul, ladies! :D

  2. EEEEEEK. I'm literally squealing right now. SO many pretties! Jasprit, I'm probably the most excited for Tumble & Fall-- sadly, I was denied for it on Netgalley. I am interested in Rose Under Fire, but I can't fangirl over it like most people since I haven't read Code Name Verity. And I've heard such amazing things for Parallel! Rachel, I really enjoyed The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden, it's quite a good one! And I still really need to read Game, since I loved I Hunt Killers. Lovely books, ladies, HAPPY reading! <3

  8. You girls, this haul is magnificent! I love it!! I got Game last week and I'm excited to dive into something mysterious and gore-ish. Also, I have heard nothing but awesome about Parallel. Ah, and This Girl! I did a re-read of Slammed and PoR so hopefully I'll get around reading This Girl soon. One of my favorite series :-) Happy reading, lovelies!

  16. I still need to read Code Name Verity but I finally bought a copy; hopefully her latest book will be just as good for you!! I want to read In the Shadow of Blackbirds as well. It's funny, I don't normally read a lot of historical fiction but so many are looking good these days.

    I need to get my hands on I Hunt Killers, especially since the sequel is out. It's been on my wish list for ages.

  21. Oh my..as always you've got some amazing books. My "oh my" was for Game cause I'm dying to read that series! Also I'm so curious about Parallel and In the shadow of Blackbirds! Great haul girls :)

  22. Rose Under Fire is being released in UK in only 7 days so I just went ahead and ordered a finished copy. I knew I'd want to have it on my shelf so there was really no point in requesting the arc.
    And Blackbirds! Such an amazing book.
    I liked Game a lot too, but I was angry because it ended with no less than three cliffhangers.
    Ah well. Happy reading, girls.
