Showcase Sunday #45



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, its been sometime since I last shared my book haul with you, I received so many amazing books, that I decided to share just a few of the ones I'm really excited about.



Thank you Harper360UK and Orion Children's Books/Indigo.




Thank you to Balzer + Bray, Abrams and Headline.

Side Effects May Vary had been on my wish list for the longest time ever, I also seem to find myself gravitating towards books dealing with cancer themed stories and ones which leave me feeling emotionally overwhelmed, so I'm really looking forward to reading this one. I won a copy of Split Second through a Twitter giveaway thanks to Harper360UK I hardly ever win anything, so was giddy when my copy arrived this week!

Over to Rachel and her haul.




Thank you to Gallery Threshhold Pocket Books, Clean Teen Publishing, Berkley, and Netgalley.





I really enjoyed How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf so I requested book three which was up on Netgalley. I think they can be read as stand-alones, but I want to read the second book before. I hope Lingering Echoes is good. I got an email to request it from Netgalley and the premise sounded mysterious. Rumors is the prequel and is free on Amazon so I grabbed that up. Snow Kissed is a novella from Laura Florand and it’s the first book I’ll be reading by her that’s not part of the Amour et Chocolat series. I’m wondering how it will compare. I’m sure it will be lovely because Ms. Florand writes so beautifully!

We'd love to see which books made it to your book haul this week, so feel free to leave us a link in the comments and one of us will be over shortly!

  1. SPLIT SECOND! Ah, Jasprit, you will definitely be having a happy reading time with your haul :) I tend to gravitate towards cancer books too...which sounds depressing. I haven't heard of any of your books, Rachel, but their covers (and that first title) catch my eye!

  2. Jasprit, I'm so curious to see what you think of Split Second. I'm looking forward to it, though slightly nervous too. I picked up High & Dry from NetGalley this week too so I'm hoping it's just as good as Bruised.

    Rachel, I really enjoyed Snow-Kissed, so I hope you do too. I'm sure you will since it contains Florand's signature writing style which is just so lovely. I wasn't a fan of the two Harper novels following the first one, but I hope you have better luck with them than I did. Wonderful haul, ladies! :)

  3. Jasprit: I haven't seen that cover for If You Find Me before but it looks great! I hope you enjoy

    Rach: Hmm, I don't seen any titles I've heard of before--How to Run with A Naked Werewolf's title made me snort.

    Happy reading, ladies! <33

  10. Looks like you both got some nice titles this week!!

    I want to get Molly Harper's latest novel, but I still need to read the second werewolf book first.

  11. You must let me know how you end up liking Side Effects May Vary. I was...not a fan, sadly.

  12. Oh If You Find Me!! It's such an amazing book and I cannot wait to see what you think of it. I cannot wait for The Geography of You and Me! Ghost Seer is new to me but it looks so good. Great haul, ladies! :)

  13. Looking forward to seeing what you think of Side Effects May Vary. Sounds like an interesting twist on the cancer themed story. I picked up the Rumors free novella too but haven't yet read it. Lingering Echoes sure sounds interesting though. Enjoy your new reads!

  14. Ooo, Split Second! That's exciting! I have not read Pivot Point (despite owning it), but I have a good feeling about the series, and I know I'll read it sometime. I look forward to seeing what you think of Side Effects May Vary! I wanted to request that one, but then decided not to do so. Lots of review books to get through first!

    Have a fabulous week!

    Check out my STS post!

  15. You both got some really great books! I'd never seen that cover for If You Find Me. I just finished reading it last week and loved it, so I hope you do too. Happy reading! :-)

  17. OH MY GOD!!! You got The Geography of You and ME! Ah, I want that book so bad and I hate when publishers reject you, not one, but twice from different website. I guess I have to wait for it to be out! I'll look forward to your review! Hopefully it's everything we expected and more! Great haul, girls :)

  18. Great books, ladies! I cannot wait to read Snow Kissed! I didn't realize How to Run w/a Naked Werewolf was a standalone. I've had a copy for awhile, but was hesitant, since I hadn't read the first two.
    Enjoy your books!

  19. YES! That's exactly how I feel about books with illnesses. I've just put Side Effects May Vary on my wishlist. Thanks for the recommendation and hope you enjoy your books! :)

  20. Ah, lots of awesome books. I really, really loved If You Find Me :D And I hope you do too. <3 That paperback is gorgeous. Still waiting on my copy :) Hope you both enjoy everything that you got this week. <3 Happy reading :)

  21. Split Second!!! I loved that sequel so much so I hope you enjoy it too!!!

  22. Ooo, I'm interested in hearing what you think of IF YOU FIND ME, Jasprit--it seems to be a very polarizing read, although I thought it was a great debut. I see you and Rachel have teamed up to make me anxious to read Molly Harper, too! ;)

    I'm looking forward to SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY. And thank you for this post, because you listed a couple of titles that weren't high on my radar, and this is a good reminder that they're coming out soon. Happy reading!
