I have changed how I lay this out as it would be easier to showcase... Anyways, LOOOOOOOOOK! What a Showcase this week. How I'm going to get through them, is anyone's guess. Hehe. Let's start Mystic City I have seen across many blogs and I have seen some brilliant reviews, So I can't wait to read this book. Then there's Heaven, what a gorgeous cover. I have read the first though I need to re-read it to remind of what happened as well as the second. Can't wait to read it! Now, Rachel Caine, she is an amazing author and I'm so happy to read the latest in the Morganville Series. I have bought everyone since they came out and now I would never thought I would receive them for request. I'm so excited. *Swoon* Shane!!!!! Then there is her other YA series The Revivalist which I'm equally looking forward to reading and to see what the comparisons are like between the two in her structure and style. The Pledge is another one that I was offered and I took the chance as it too looked so good read, conceptionally very different from what I would usually read. Now Jane Eyrotica, Urm What can I say, I was very surprised by receiving it... it shocked me an made me laugh, how Fifty Shades has influenced such a wide variety of books. I haven't read Jane Eyre before, so maybe that's a good thing. Larissa Ione is one of my favourite Adult Fantasy writers and I can't wait to read this book in comparison with the other series I have read. Storm's Heart is one I didn't request I have never read the series before, but it looks so good and the cover, gorgeous! I was very lucky enough to receive the physical copy of Forbidden which I did receive via NetGalley, but Hey, I just love receiving these.

As That was my major part of my Showcase I have also received a very big collection from NetGalley and I seriously don't know when I have the time to read these. But I'd better crack on! Hysteria, Coveted, The You Know Who Girls: Freshman Year, Undeadly and City of Dark Magic I have been so excited that I received them! Whoop! But I love the whole Showcase! *Swoon for Books* xD

  14. So many good books I just don't know where to begin. I saw 'Mystic City' a lot lately and it sound really interesting. And I really need to read 'The Pledge' soon. I loved Body Finder series so I hope this will be good too. I read the first in Elder Races series and it was fun so I should get 'Storm's Heart' soon to continue the series. I got 'Pantomime' and 'City of Dark Magic' from NetGalley too, but didn't read them yet.
    The only book I read from your pile is 'UnEarthed' by Rebecca Bloomer. It's a great short YA SF. I loved it very much, you can read my review here.
    Well, that's all from me. Great haul! :)

  15. What an amazing haul, Emma! I love the Morganville Vamp series! I'm 2 books behind so I'd better catch up. The Pledge was an okay read to me, hope it works out better for you. Jane Eyre erotica? Hmm...can't wait to see what you make of that, lol. I've heard good things about Mystic City. I've been seeing Pantomime around. It looks interesting. I keep debating on whether I should request it. Enjoy your reads, Emma. :)

  16. Wow, how do you get so many physical copies? Do you email the publishers individually? =)
    Enjoy reading them - hope you can find the time!

  17. Ah I got Mystic City too from Random House U.K.It's awesome!You can check out my review here:

  18. Wowowow! Amazing haul! I never saw that edition of The Pledge. It looks softer than the maroon one. And the cover of Dancing in the Dark is so cool! Thanks for stopping by! Love your blog, been visiting it for quite sometimes but never had enough time to leave comments. :)

  19. I'm way behind on my Morganville Vampires. I really want to get back into the series.

  20. WOW, amazing books! I am dying to read Mystic City, Undeadly and the Halo series! :D I am planning to request Hysteria from Net Galley, wish me luck... the cover is stunning! I have the first 6 Morganville Vampire books sitting on my bookshelf and I haven't read any of them... *gasp* D: I hope you enjoy the 13th one!
