Showcase Sunday (1)

Sunday, May 12, 2013 12:26 PM
I thought I'd try out Showcase Sunday this week for the first time ever. Showcase Sunday is hosted over at Books, Biscuits, and Tea. Showcase Sunday is a weekly feature where book bloggers feature the books and book swag they've received, bought, borrowed, etc over the past week.

May has been an AMAZING month for new releases! I pre-ordered 4 books this month, something that has never happened before. And two of them came this week!

Bought:
In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters - I am really anxious to read this since I am a huge fan of the paranormal and just anything creepy!

The End Games by T. Michael Martin - I have been waiting for this book for far too long, and I'm really hoping it doesn't disappoint.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey - After reading Yancey's The Monstrumologist and The Curse of the Wendigo, I don't think it's possible for Yancey to write a horrible book or even an alright book. I cannot wait to read this one!

Borrowed:
Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler - Rather Be Reading recommended this book and I'm looking forward to reading my first Sarah Ockler book!

What did everyone else get this week?

  1. Great haul! I checked out Twenty Boy Summer this week which will be my first Sarah Ockler. I also have an e-galley for her latest book. I've heard great things about her work so I'm excited to read both. I did order the Monstrumologist. I'm excited to read it after your review. Happy reading!

    1. That's awesome! I'm so happy that you'll be reading The Monstrumologist and I really hope you love it as much as I did! And I'm glad we'll be reading our first Sarah Ockler books together. I'm anxious to hear what you think about Twenty Boy Summer. If I like Bittersweet, I just might have to read that one too. :D Thanks Natalie!
