Showcase Sunday (#8)


Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits & Tea.
Its an opportunity to highlight 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 each week.

This week I borrowed from the library:


Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver - I'm trying to go through my Recommendations list and I thought I'd for these ones; the book looks really good and I can't wait to read it. The cover looks so sad, and that's what I love about not judging a book by its cover, you never know what you going to experience.
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire - Now a couple of friends of mine; Aa'Ishah over at Reading Under the Stars recommened I read Beautiful Disasters as I liked and enjoyed Fifty Shades and Crossfire novels.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver - As you can see I got a couple of Oliver's books and it will be interesting to see the comparison between the these two novels. They both look brilliant and the simplicity of the cover makes even more interesting! 

I also received from NetGalley:

  The Rising 

Surrender by Rhiannon Paille - This cover is absolutely beautiful and I love the description of this book... looks brilliant!
Courting Trouble by Jenny Schwartz - This looks very different from what I would normally read but it looked really interesting and I'm really pleased to have received it.
The Rising by Temple Matthews - This looks really good and I'm not a big fan of male POV but I think the more I read the more I will enjoy them more.
More by T.M. Franklin - This looks an awesome book, out of the whole collection of NetGalley books this looks brilliant.. if you haven't requested it...DO!

I also bought some eBooks: 

 

Reflected in You by Sylvia Day - Now I am posting my review tomorrow... This book was highly anticipated for a long time and I couldn't wait to read it!!!!!!!

OMG! Don't you love the new layout of NetGalley!? It's awesome! They have got some really good books being added. I'm loving it! I know its a big haul this week and I'm getting back into the swing of reading again! 

 Have you read these? I would like to know what you thought!
Are you taking part? Leave me link, I would love to see what you received this week.

Happy Reading!

  2. I hope you enjoy Delirium! I've been meaning to check it out cause Matched and Delirium has been compared so much I wanted to see what the better of the two were. But I haven't got around.. Tell me what you think when you're done, at least, I hope you're going to write a review on it. I have to definitely agree with you, Surrender looks absolutely beautiful and More looks pretty creepy in a way awesome. XD

    Enjoy all your books! That'll be a big pile you've got. XD

  6. Really great haul.

    Dying to read Delirium, it looks so amazing. And on the Rising, when it comes to male POV, it can be tricky. Have you ever read Beastly by Alex Flinn? - that was really cute and from a Male POV. I hope you enjoy everything you this week.

    I love the title of your blog btw and I'm a new follower.

    Thanks for stopping by my haul, Emma! :)
