Showcase Sunday is hosted over at Books, Biscuits, and Tea. Showcase Sunday is where book bloggers can show all of the books and bookish goodies they bought, received, borrowed, etc recently. It's been over a month since I last posted a Showcase Sunday, so this post features the books I've received or bought over a long span of time.

I went to New York City for a weekend with my boyfriend in late June, so of course I had to visit the Strand Book Store, and I bought a few things. I had to resist the urge to keep buying more stuff too. I love that bookstore so much. I honestly could spend hours in there.
-The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope
-Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst
-Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
-Asylum (Asylum #1) by Madeleine Roux
-Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
My close friend Amanda sent me some lovely gifts for my birthday, including chocolate, a journal and a signed copy of Love Letters to the Dead! She got it signed for me at Fierce Reads, and I love her for it!
As always, I had trouble resisting the temptation of $1.99 deals for Kindle, not to mention that free Kindle book, The Chocolate Rose! How could I say no to a free book, especially when I've heard good things about her romances? And then the Vessel hardcover was on sale for a really good price on Amazon, and I've been meaning to read that one for far too long! Plus, those novellas were cheap, and I'm hoping to read them soon, since I love The Grisha and Fire and Thorns series! I'm excited to read all of these books, and I really need to stop buying any more, since I have a new house now that I'm moving into...
So what books did everyone else get recently? Have you read any of these?
