Showcase Sunday (5)

Sunday, June 8, 2014 12:00 AM
Showcase Sunday is hosted over at Books, Biscuits and Tea. Showcase Sunday is a feature where book bloggers can show all of the books and bookish goodies they bought, received, borrowed, etc recently. This post features books from my last few weeks, and I'd like to think I kept my book buying addiction under control. I snatched up the occasional Kindle book deal, but I avoided bookstores, and my wallet has thanked me.

Bought (Kindle):
-The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa
-The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa
-Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2) by Robin LaFevers
-To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before #1) by Jenny Han
-Another Little Piece by Kate Karys Quinn

Approved (Netgalley):
-Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin

-World After (Penryn & the End of Days #2) by Susan Ee
-The Glass Casket by McCormick Templeman

-The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
-Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
-Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas
-Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

As you can see, Kindle books for $1.99 are my weakness. But, hey, that's a deal I cannot resist. I really enjoyed The Immortal Rules, so I just had to buy it for future rereads, and then I also bought the sequel when they were both on sale. I also loved Grave Mercy, so I was excited to find Dark Triumph at a low price. As for the other two, I've been meaning to read them, and now I finally have them on my Ipad!

This past week, I was approved for Tabula Rasa, which is exciting! Not only is it a debut, meaning it can count towards my Debut Author Challenge, but it is also described in the Goodreads synopsis as "The Bourne Identity meets Divergent," so I'm certainly intrigued.

I just finished The Glass Casket, and it is a new favorite! My review should be up soon. I'm reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao now, and I can understand why it received such high praise.

So what books did you guys buy and/or receive this week? Have you read any of these?


  1. OOOoh very nice! I loooooove Julie Kagawa and World After was just amazing too! Sooo cannot wait for that third book to come out! Enjoy!

  2. You got so many amazing books! I also got Dark Triumph (can't resist $1.99). And I absolutely loved To All the Boys…what a cute book! And yes, Tabula Rasa sounds so good, I'm hoping to read it soon…have fun reading! ~Pam

  3. I LOVE Dark Triumph and The blood of Eden series. One of the better vampire zombie-ish series :) Happy reading!


  4. The Eternity Cure has the most gorgeous blue, the electronic cover does it no justice!! Been wanting to read Grave Mercy, Angelfall and Love Letters To The Dead, these book haul posts make me feel so guilty looking at the pretty covers that I WANT TO read, but have no time for eeps! =P
