Showcase Sunday #22

Showcase Sunday banner

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.

Unfortunately it has been a while since I have done a Showcase Sunday *sighs* but this week I got a little overloaded with books so I thought I would make a one of the best books I have received and looking forward to reading in the next few weeks. Work has also been keeping me busy with new prospects ahead for the future as well. Exciting Times. So thank you to my Postman who seems to know even when I'm not in to deliver to my work so I can get them. Haha! So thank you to again Royal Mail and the Publishers for these....



                           Shine by Candy Gourlay                                             Dead Jealous by Sharon Jones
                        Soulmates by Holly Bourne                                          AntiGoddess by Kendare Blake
                       Stolen by Lucy Christopher                                       Shadows and Haze by Paula Weston
              The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black              She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
                          Teardrop by Lauren Kate


I've kind of experimented with my book presentation. Hehe. Anyways Soulmates I'm so excited to read, Holly actually lives near where I work now so I was very honored to get this book. Stolen was one that I asked for and if you have seen my tweets on it with Sam @ Realm of Fiction you know how much I really want to get stuck in.Now the second picture; Dead Jealous is one that I'm reading for #UKYA (which I have only just heard of, Sorry Lucy!) But my surprise was from Indigo with the Shadows and Haze, I love when I receive them in series order. Finally She is Not Invisible was again a surprise, I haven't read anything by Marcus, so I'm looking forward to it. 

  

And Yes I have some NetGalley's this week. I have been a very good girl and only requested ones that sounds really interesting or ones that have been recommended to me. I love LOVE Simone Elkeles Perfect Chemistry book, I have re-read them like 5 times... So I can't wait for another series. The Breathe series I'm reading for Sci-Fi Month in September and Geek Girl 2, well I've heard such high praise and I'm thinking of doing a read-along of the series to those who want to join! Let me know in the comments!

So with the all that showcased I will resume my blogging this week. It has been manic... So thank you to all the Indigo, Hachette, Random House, Chicken House, Usbourne and Bloombury. 

On the blog recently my joints of reviews of City of Bones Book and Film Review, Go check it out!

Well that's my haul for this week. Have you read any of these novels? I would love to know... Leave me a link to your Sunday Post and I will be sure to see what you received!?

  3. So many amazing books O____o

    I own She Is Not Invisible (can't wait to start!), Resist (didn't like it anywhere near as much as Breathe) and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown (it's quite good, just tricky to get into). I need to get United We Spy Though... :)

    Great haul! Mine is on my blog. :D

    1. I know! I really like the sound of SINI! Breathe and Resist I'm reading for a feature so I'm looking forward to it. Though sequels are very hard to come up to the standard to the first book. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  7. Ooh, lots of amazing books!
    I read Model Misfit earlier on this week and it was such a cute read! Soulmates & Dead Jealous both sound fantastic! I need to get myself a copy of Teardrop when it comes out. It sounds amazing!
    I haven't read a Marcus Sedgwick book in years but She Is Not Invisible sounds really good! I'll definitely have to check it out.
    Great haul! Happy reading :)

  18. Antigoddess was really good, and I'm hoping to read the Coldest Girl in Coldtown soon! I haven't read anything else you've gotten, but I want to read the first Geek Girl book at some point, it sounds awesome! I also like how you made the books look like they were taken with an old polaroid :) Have a good week and enjoy!

  19. Loads of awesome books!!

    I also got Antigoddess this week and loved it! I've heard so many great things about Shadows and Haze, so I can't wait to get to read those!

    I'm also quite curious about Teardrop, even if the Fallen series wasn't a fave for me.

    I'm hoping to get to read my ARC of Resist either this week or early next week!

    Happy reading!
