Showcase Sunday #59

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! We're back with another Showcase Sunday post for you. Rachel and I once again continued to add beautiful books to our massive tbr piles! I am definitely in need of a bigger bookshelf. Also being the impatient reader that I am, I have to order books from the US, because of course I can't wait another three weeks for a particular book (I'm talking about you Ashes to Ashes). But I have promised myself to become a better reader and actually try to read my books around the time that I get them, so I hope to get to all of these books pretty soon.

Thank you Harper Teen

How gorgeous does the cover to My True Love Gave to Me look? It's really got me all excited for Christmas, of course I bought a Christmas themed Yankee candle too, so I'm thinking that as soon as it starts getting darker, I may have to read this book, with my Yankee candle on too *bliss*. I was super excited to see that my library had started getting in books by Jill Shalvis, I had heard amazing things about her Lucky Harbor series, so reserved a few from the library, and I bought Simply Irresistible from Amazon for just 99p! I am so in the mood for something light, fluffy and fun.

Over to Rachel and her haul

Rachel's Haul:
(Click on title for Goodreads link)

Every Breath Only Enchanting (The Survivors' Club, #4) Her Perfect Game (Hot & Nerdy, #2) Her Winning Formula (Hot & Nerdy, #3)
Glory in Death (In Death, #2) Wolf Haven

Thank you to Tundra Books, Signet, Kensington, and Harlequin!

I finished Glory in Death and while the mystery wasn't quite as good as the first one, I still really enjoyed it. Will be continuing this series for sure! I jumped at the chance to read Every Breath when I found out it's a YA mystery by an Aussie writer!  I've had great success with Aussie books and this sounds like a good one!  

Which exciting books did you receive this week? Leave us a link in the comments and we shall be over soon to check them out


  1. Awww. Love the candle~ And My True Love Gave to Me looks like a really cute book. :D Great haul, Jasprit and Rachel!

    Cindy @ In This World of Books..

  2. Oh I hope you'll enjoy Lucky Harbor, Jas. I'm a fan. :) And I love how varied your books are, ladies!


  3. The candle is beautiful, Jasprit! I recently went to a nearby mall and there was this fair selling all sorts of traditional aromatherapy candles. REALLY tempted to buy one but I'm too afraid of fire in my room haha. xD Can't wait to read what you think of My True Love Gave to Me. Yes, the cover is simply beautiful!! <3

    Every Breath sounds amazing! YA thriller from Australian author never fails to make me shiver. On a side note, I'll be waiting for your review on The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires, Rachel! I'm a fan of Molly Harper - LOVE her Nice Girls series. Soooo wickedly funny. <3

    Happy reading, girls! :)

  4. Ooh love that cover for My True Love Gave to Me. I'm super excited for Christmas! :)

  5. Every Breath!! I've been pushing this book like crazy. It is SO GOOD. Hope you love it, Rachel!
    My True Love Gave to Me and Red Queen sound great - can't wait to see what you think, Jasprit. Also, the Lucky Harbor series is adorable. <3

  6. Girls another amazing haul from you! Like I told you Jasprit I have no idea what My True Love Gave to Me is about but I need that book in my life, if nothing just to admire it. So pretty. Also I hope you'll enjoy Ashes to Ashes! Rachel Every Breath seems so interesting and I cannot wait to hear what you think of it. Great hauls! :)

  7. Oooo! Lots of awesomeness! I like the cover of the second one. And I also have Red Queen - I have not read it though! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous weekend :)

    Check out my STS post!

  8. YAY :D All the books looks gorgeous. <3 I hope you both will love them all :) And omg, yesss. The cover for My True Love Gave to Me is stunning :D And.. I might have pre-ordered it just for that cover (A) but hoping to love the short stories too :) It just looks so pretty. Sigh. Happy reading to you both. <3

  9. Woah, I've never seen that cover of Simply Irresistible, Jasprit, but I adored the book. Jax. Cullen. You are in for SUCH a treat! ;) My True Love Gave To Me has a few absolute favorites in it so I hope you enjoy it and Red Queen looks amazing--I'm hoping I enjoy the novel as much as the cover!

    Glad to see you're continuing with J.D. Robb's books, Rachel--I definitely want to start--and I'm planning to dive into Schroeder's work tomorrow when her novella releases and I hope to make her a new favorite romance author as well. Wonderful haul, ladies! :)

  10. My true love looks good, hope you enjoy and have a great week.

  11. Oh I'm loving that cover of My True Love Gave To Me! And the edges are pink! Too freaking cute. I have yet to read anything by Jill Shalvis but I've heard her books are fantastic (especially that series) so I'm going to try one someday. Red Queen is one I want reaaalll bad. Trying to restrain myself though and get through the review books I already have first.

    One of these days, I'll get around to reading a Mary Balogh. I don't read a lot of historical romances, but the ones I have I've really enjoyed. Need to work on branching out more. :)

    Enjoy your new reads!

  12. My True Love Gave to Me sounds so good!! So pretty too. :) I hope you both enjoy your new goodies!

  13. I though the Lucky Harbor series was an incredibly sweet, light and enjoyable series, Jasprit. I've never seen that cover though, it's so pretty! I LOVE how the pages of My True Love Gave To Me are pink. I have Every Breath on my tbr! Looking forward to your review on that one, Rachel. Glad you're still enjoying the In Death series :)

  14. I really need to get with the program and read JD Robb's series already, I keep hearing nothing but praise. And I also couldn't resist downloading a copy of Red Queen. I'll have to wait a while to read it, but hopefully it'll be as good as it looks.
    Enjoy your books, ladies!

  15. MY TRUE LOVE GAME TO ME? *hyperventilates* I NEED THIS BOOK SO BAD! Yeay! Hope you enjoy it Jasprit! I need to started Burn for Burn too! haha

  16. Oooh Red Queen! That has got to be the 2015 release I'm most excited about right now trying very hard not to read my arc just yet! Happy reading ladies :)

  17. I love the cover for "My true love...". That's so lovely!
    I also got an e-ARC of Red Queen and I've heard so many good things about it, I can't wait to read it.
