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 all, I hope you've all had a wonderful couple of week's. Rachel and I have a three day weekend this week! I'm sure I can say this from both of us, we are absolutely thrilled about this. I'm hoping to use it to catch up with reading, I am so behind on my Goodreads reading goal at the moment, I did pretty well for Bout of Books last week, as I read four books! But this week I didn't end up finishing anything, I seem to be getting distracted way too quickly, by Instagram, Twitter or just binge watching Game of Thrones (I am finally up to date, my gosh things are crazy!!), so definitely need the motivation to read more :(. Anyway I received some amazing books this past two weeks, so I'm hoping these pretties will get me back to reading.
Thank you Indigo and Bloomsbury UK
Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay | Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
Can you believe there's less than a month before the release of Ruin and Rising? I can't wait to find out how things will go in this latest book, so I was thrilled to receive a sampler from Indigo, I really want to read it right away, but I'm thinking I'll be dying for more, so may wait closer to the release date. I read The Winner's Curse a few months back and it really was a gem of a read, the UK publisher's were nice enough to send me a UK edition (I definitely think it's my favourite out of both covers). And the lovely Siiri at Little Pieces of Imagination, who I can say has become an amazing friend this last few months, sent me Of Beast and Beauty and Open Road Summer from my wish list *hugs* I can't thank you enough!!
Let's see what Rachel received.
Kindling the Moon by Jenn Bennett | Banishing the Dark by Jenn Bennett | Turning Up the Heat by Laura Florand | Attachments by Rainbow Rowell | Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Thank you to Pocket Books, SYNC and Edelweiss.
I'm excited to start Jenn Bennett's Arcadia Bell series. After reading and LOVING Bitter Spirits I wanted to get my hands on her other titles and big bonus: all the books are out! I saw that Laura Florand's Turning Up the Heat was only .99 cents on Amazon I had to get a copy! The audio book of Attachments was on sale at Audible for $3.95 so I snatched that up. If you like audio books you should definitely sign up for Audible's Daily Deal email. I get so many great books on sale that way. If you didn't know SYNC has a program running all summer for free audiobooks. Two titles are released each week and you can still download Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge.
