Showcase Sunday #39

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 everyone, I hope you've all had a great week. I've got another small book haul to share with you guys this week, but one that I'm very excited about.

Thank you to Wendy from The Midnight Garden and Sam from Realm of Fiction.

Thank you to Harper Teen and Entangled Teen.

I was so happy to find out that I'd won copies of A Certain Slant of Light and Under the Light from The Midnight Garden, Wendy was a huge fan of these books, so I can't wait to give these books a go soon. Ask the Passengers had been on my wish list forever and I think it's about high time I read a book by A.S King, so thank you to Sam for sending it to me as a birthday present. How amazing does The Taking sound? Harper Teen has really spoiling me with great books up on Edelweiss and The Taking was one that I couldn't wait to get my hands on. 

Lets see the books that Rachel received.

Thank you to Gallery Books, Atria Books, Diversion Books, and Netgalley.

Hounded (Iron Druid Chronicles #1) Audio-book by Kevin Hearne | Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1) Audio-book by Gail Carriger | Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock #1) by Faith Hunter | Dark House by Karina Halle

The Experiment in Terror series 1-7 and 4 novellas by Karina Halle. Each book in the series is on sale for .99 cents on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for the month of November. The first book (Darkhouse) is free on both sites!

I can’t wait to finish The Devils series by Karina Halle. Her writing is pretty addictive and the first one was super creepy! I was excited to get Four Seconds to Lose by K.A. Tucker. Yes, her books seem to follow the same NA recipe, but her writing seems to make up for that.

I think Audible has my number, luring me with their Daily Deals! I bought Hounded, Soulless, and Skinwalker on their Daily Deal for $3.95 a piece. That’s a steal of a deal when it comes to audio-books!

If you have posted a book haul this week, we'd love to see what you received, so leave us a link in the comments and we'll be over to check it out shortly! 


  1. I'm so hopping over to Edelweiss right now and requesting a copy of THE TAKING! Kimberly Derting is one of my favourite YA authors, love her THE BODY FINDER books.

  2. Jasprit, I was both impressed and underwhelmed by A Certain Slant of Light, so I'm curious to see what you think about it. I've heard wonderful things about Ask the Passengers, though, and The Taking looks promising, even though Derting's last series didn't work out too well for me. I cannot wait to dig into Ink is Thicker Than Water, though - I looooved Spalding's debut, so I'm sure this is going to be another great book from her!

    Rachel, I adored Soulless, but liked it so much as a stand-alone I never continued with the series. I'm hoping you do, though, and convince me to get back to it! ;) I'm also very curious about Sempre, Dark House, and Hounded, so I can't wait to see what you think of them all. Great haul, ladies! :)

  3. When is your birthday? :O So sweet of Sam :) I hear that A.S. King is one of the best authors out there :) As for Rachel's books, I'm afraid to read One Tiny Lie so I don't know when I'm going to get to the third one. Oh, and Sempre is on my tbr list, but that cover kinda freaks me out and the fact that so many people love it and it's freaking huge O.o So.. I'll just wait for your review :D

  4. Jasprit: Under the Light looks really good, I love the cover, it's natural and beautiful all at once. I also got The Taking--pretty cool cover, huh?
    Rachel: I look forward to your thoughts on that Gail Carriger novel! I wasn't a fan of her YA series, so I am thinking of tryin here adult series soon.

    Happy reading, girls! <33

  5. The Taking sounds pretty cool and I really want to read Hounded too. I've only read Darkhouse from all the books mentioned and it was really good. :)
    Enjoy everything
    My Showcase Sunday

  6. I loved Soulless! Such a fun book :D And I can't wait to read The taking. Enjoy!


  7. I'm totally jealous of you getting the Soulless audio book! In the UK we can only get Heartless and Timless (books 4 and 5) on audible :(

    A Certain Slant of Light looks awesome!

  8. Nice books! I'm very curious about Ink is Thicker Than Water and Sempre. I hope you enjoy your books, ladies!

  9. Oh gosh. Look at all these wonderful books. Your post just reminded me that I missed some goodies that Wendy sent me. Gah! She's so awesome. lol. Anyway, looking forward to reading your thoughts on these.

    Have a great week, ladies!

  10. Jasprit, I'm so curious to see what you think of A.S King's book. I will definitely be stalking your GR account to see what you think of it. I've heard great things about her books.
    I'm excited to read Ink is Thicker than Water. It sounds like my kind of contemporary novel.

    Rachel, I got Sempre too this week and I'm so excited to read because of all the positive reviews. Plus, I love the sound of it.

    Enjoy your lovely books, lovelies! :)
    Happy reading!

  11. Ohh, lots of pretty books. <3 I also got The Taking, and hoping to read it soon :) Hope you guys will enjoy it all! Happy reading <3

  12. I really enjoyed The Pledge by Kimberly Derting, but the sequel was a DNF for me. And I wasn't really a fan of her Body Finder series, so I'm not sure about The Taking. Think I'll wait for your review!

  13. Taking and Four Seconds looks good, hope you enjoy! Happy reading and have a great week.

  14. Some interesting books up there. I adore the Hounded books by Hearne and Luke Daniels is my all time fav narrators ever. Drop everything and listen to it!

  15. Jasprit, you won the book with the creepy cover!!! LOL I hope you weren't spooked by it! Ask the passenger has been in my wishlish for so long but I haven't heard much about it. I can't wait to see what you think of it!

    Rachel, I got Sempre and Sempre Redemption too! It kind of sounded like Killing Sarai and I know I loved that one. I have high hopes from this book seeing that the indie version was a massive hit! Also, I'm crossing my finger with Four Seconds to lose and hoping for the best. Great haul, ladies!!!

  16. You got some great books this week! I've had Ask the Passengers on my tbr/wishlist forever, so I'll be curious to see what you think. Happy reading! :-)

    My Book Haul

  17. Rachel, you are going to love Hounded, and especially Soulless, I just know it! Gail Carriger is so funny, and Lord Maccon... well. :)
    I've been meaning t get a copy of Ask the Passengers for ages now, thanks for the reminder, Jasprit. I'll order a copy now.
    Happy reading/listening, girls.

  18. Ooh -- lots of good ones! (Adding some of those to my TBR!) I have Soulless, but haven't read it... can't what to hear what you think of it! Talk about a great haul, guys! ;)

  19. Wow, I can't wait to hear what you think of SOULLESS! One of my all-time faves. I have to check out Audible sometime soon, sounds like I'm totally missing out. ;)

    Am looking forward to your thoughts on that literary ghost story too, Jasprit....
