Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky @ Books, Biscuits & Tea. The aim of this event 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. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.
I’ve had a great week this week. Whilst I didn’t exactly go mad in the buying department, or in the review-request department, what I did get is pretty awesome.
Here there are:
And remember that £10 Amazon voucher I was gifted with? Well, I did initially want to get the 1st Immortal Instruments (coz I haven’t read any of them), but turned out Amazon didn’t do the nice new pretty cover, only the slightly fugly old one. And I didn’t want that on my shelf–so I’ve decided to wait until the new cover’s available.
Instead, I added £1.61 of my own pence to the gift voucher and nabbed:
The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton. DUDE, this cover is enough to make a girl salivate. It’s very shiny, too. I’ve stroked it. A LOT!
Partials by Dan Wells. This one has come highly recommended and I got it dirt cheap for £3-something. Another shiny, pretty cover. The book’s way thicker than I expected, though.
I’ve gotta say, the kindness amongst the book blogging community never ever fails to wow me. Since I’ve been blogging here (and on Goodreads prior to starting the blog), I’ve had books posted to me for loan, books I’ve really wanted purchased for me as gifts, and now I’ve had an extraneous copy of a book I really needed (coz we always need the book, it’s never a simple want, right?) to get and wouldn’t have been able to for a little while.
So, to Natalie Cleary, a HUGE thanks for sending me:
And, OF COURSE, I mustn’t forget one of the highlights of my week. Another act of total generosity. The pure awesome Rebecca Hart (author of Call of the Sea as well as reviewer over at Bex Book Nook) booked herself a day at BEA. AND, because she knew how much I luuurve Jennifer L. Armentrout, she took her own copy of Obsidian along and got Jen to sign it to ME!
All I had to do was replace Becca’s copy. MAJOR win! Huge thanks to Ms Hart!
Lastly, for blogging to help promote their new Dead Sexy imprint, Entangled gifted me with a copy of:
I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about Diane Alberts, so I’m looking forward to delving into this one and checking her writing out.
Cheers for this, Misa.
And finally onto …
From Entangled via NetGalley (thankee), so I’m looking forward to it.
And that’s it. I think.
What’s in your Showcase Sunday this week?
Oh, and I changed the colours & header of the blog. Whatcha think?
