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.
Since then we have accumulated many great reads. But instead of overwhelming you with all our books, we thought we'd share just a few of the books we're most excited about. (Click on the books for Goodreads link).
Thank you to Bloomsbury UK, Harper Teen, Simon Pulse and Luna's Library.
I finally have two books which I have been eagerly awaiting for since last year: Ruin and Rising and Heir of Fire. I started Ruin and Rising as soon as I received it, and it has been amazing so far. Its taking all my will power to not start Heir of Fire straight away, I want to read the novellas first, but also I was left utterly ruined last year with Throne of Glass, so I just need to prepare myself a bit more. Just One Night had everything that I had originally needed at the end of Just One Day, so I'm glad that finally know what happened afterwards with Willem and Allyson. No Place to Fall, Magnolia and Top Ten Clues You're Clueless sound like perfect reads for the Summer, my fingers are just itching to dive right in (why can't I read all the amazing books all at once?). And The Darkest Minds was a book that I hadn't heard much about at first, but the reviews have been really good from blogging friends so far.
Over to Rachel and her haul.

Thank you to Pocket Books, Harlequin TEEN, and Netgalley!
I didn't get too many books which is good, because I'm always painfully behind with my review copies. I just finished Written in Red and wow, I LOVED it!! (I'll have my review up soon.) I immediately downloaded Murder of Crows both e-Copy and audiobook. Yes, I know a little extravagant, but I had the Audible credits, and because it's great switching back and forth. I'm so excited for Better Homes and Hauntings! The synopsis sounds fun and I love horror mixed in with humor, and Molly Harper always has me cracking up. I was pleasantly surprised when I got approved for Take Me On just recently when I requested it sometime ago, and never heard back.
In other news, I'll be attending:
Vegas, baby!! This is the fourth ALA Conference I've attended, and I'm really excited, as I'm meeting up with my usual partners in book crime, Arlene and Crystal from Winterhaven Books! I'm leaving Thursday.
