Showcase Sunday #42

 


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, as Rachel is still on her break, it'll just be me sharing my book haul with you today. Once again it's a nice small book haul, but I am excited about every single book. 





Thank you to Jess from Jess Hearts Books 




Thank you to Random House Children's and Electric Monkey.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart | The Here and Now by Ann Brashares | Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn

After reading Graceling in just a few days, I knew immediately (actually on the day I started reading Graceling) that I needed the rest of the books in my life. Knowing when I'll get time to read them is a whole another story, but at least I know I can dive straight in when I'm not feeling a book. The lovely Jess from Jess Hearts Books sent me a copy of Where the Stars Still Shine for Christmas, I have read gorgeous reviews for this book, so look forward to reading this with Jess in the new year. Colour me surprised when I got accepted for a copy of We Were Liars, I'd decided to request a copy thinking I'd just get a rejection email in the next few days, but instead have this lovely to look forward to (this has a 4.25 average from my Goodreads friends already and its not set for release until May!), consider me a very happy girl! My Name is Memory was the last book I read by Brashares and I absolutely loved it, so once again I was thrilled to be accepted for another book by her.

If you posted a book haul this week, then leave a link in the comments and I will be over shortly to check it out!.

  1. Yay for Fire, Where the Stars Still Shine, and Charm & Strange - all some of my faves! I wasn't a big fan of Bitterblue, though I love Cashore's work, and I received both We Were Liars and The Here and Now this week as well. I'm really looking forward to both!(:

  2. I hope Rachel is having a good time on her vacation! You got some lovely books this week, I see! I still need to read the Graceling series, they look amazing. I loved WTSSS! And I thought exactly the same as you, I thought I was going to be rejected for WE WERE LIARS as well but hey, it's in our hands! I am very excited for that one. Happy reading and happy holidays, Jasprit!

  6. I hadn't heard of We Were Liars, believe it or not. No ratings from my GR friends yet, but the synopsis? Dude! DUDE! IT'S SO GOOD *__* Had to add it to my evergroing tbr. You and Rachel are killing me with this every week. I can't carry a tbr this big on my sholders anymore, haha. I hope you enjoy all of your books though and so nice of Jess. Have a great Sunday, love! x

  9. Where the Stars Still Shine seems like such a fantastic book - I can't wait to read it and HAVE YOU SEEN THAT COVER? It's so pretty!

    And now I'm very curious about Charm and Strange. The title and cover have definitely intrigued me - thanks for putting it on my radar!

    Hope both you and Rachel have a lovely Christmas :)

    1. Beverley it's so great to see you back!!!! There have been quite few covers around for Charm & Strange, this one isn't my favourite, but I can't wait to start my copy! And thank you, I hope you have a brilliant Christmas too! :)

  13. I'm SO glad that you loved Graceling. I hope Fire lives up to your expectations. I still need to get around to Bitterblue myself in the meantime. :) And I was fully expecting a rejection for We Were Liars too, so I didn't request it, but I might try my luck now if it's still up there! I can't wait to get your thoughts on it. I haven't seen that cover of Charm and Strange before, but I really liked that book. I hope it works for you!

  16. Oh my. I just fell in love with covers for Fire and Bitterblue. I wasn't planing on continuing that series but now I think I'll have to buy these. I truly hope you'll enjoy them Jasprit. Great haul :)

  17. WOOT YOU GOT FIRE! That is legitimately my favorite book OF ALL TIME. Like, a more perfect book could not have been written (for me, anyway). And Where the Stars Still Shine! I loved that one as well. I hope you enjoy all of your new books! :)

    Have a fantastic holiday!

    Check out my STS post!

  20. It's always exciting when I see people buying the rest of the series after reading the first book - I haven't read Graceling yet, but I'll definitely find time to squeeze it into my schedule soon. Thanks for sharing what titles you got this week - have a wonderful time celebrating Christmas and happy reading! :)

  21. AHH FIRE AND BITTERBLUE! *throws confetti* I seriously LOVED Graceling, and Fire just as much. Seriously. Cashore has unparalleled talent. While I didn't enjoy Bitterblue as much, I found it wholly intriguing. I can't wait to see what you think of the rest of the series!! :D

    There's been so much buzz lately about We Were Liars, so it seems like I'll actually have to be not lazy for once and go check out the synopsis to see what this is all about. ;) Charm and Strange is one I've seen in a lot of top 10 posts lately, and so I really want to pick it up! I can't wait to see what you think of it. Also, same goes for Where the Stars Still Shine. I can't believe I haven't picked that one up yet, despite raving reviews from all of my most trusted blogger buddies who have read it!!

    Lovely haul, Jasprit! I hope you enjoy all of those awesome books. <3

  22. Can't wait to see what you think of Fire and Bitterblue Jasprit! I need to read that series, I know I do. I think maybe I'll make it a New Year's resolution to finally get to it! I really enjoyed Where the Stars Still Shine, I hope you like it as well:) Fantastic group of books this week!!

  23. I only discovered Kristin Cashore this year myself and I adore her Graceling books! Each one was better than the last, but I do wish she'd do a fourth book. Where the Stars Still Shine is on my TBR pile, I really enjoyed TD's first book so I hope this one is as good.

  24. I read Graceling and really enjoyed it too, but never felt the compulsion to get to the rest of the series for some reason. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think about the rest of the books though.
    Yay for Where the Stars Still Shine. It's such a gorgeous book, Jasprit and I think you would enjoy it. :)
    I got We Were Liars and The Here and Now as well and I'm excited about those two. They seem great.
    Enjoy your lovely books, Jasprit!

  25. Yay, awesome books :D I hope you will love them all. <3 And Fire and Bitterblue! They are both perfect. Enjoy them :)

  26. Wow, I love the UK cover for CHARM AND STRANGE! It's such a weird little book, but I really liked it, I hope you do too, Jasprit. I'm glad you finally read GRACELING, too--it took me forever to get to it, but I really, really liked it in the end. Um...will be interesting to see what you think of the sequels though, hah.
