Showcase Sunday 15th July 2012

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted every Sunday by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea, and inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox. This is a chance for all us book bloggers to showcase 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 this week.




Only 2 new books this week-


  • I borrowed The Other Life by Suzanne Winnacker on audiobook from the library. This is a set in a post apocalyptic world, where Sherry and her family have been living in a bunker underground for 3 years, since they were told to take cover and await further instructions. But now with no food they must venture out onto the surface again. 
Goodreads




  •  I got What I Didn't Say by Keary Taylor for review from Netgalley, thanks to the author and publisher. This sounds really great too- it's about a guy who had always liked a girl at school but never had the courage to tell her. When a car accident damages his throat and leaves him mute, he realises that he will never be able to talk again. He will have to work to tell her how he has always felt, without actually being able to say it. 
Goodreads




Those were all the books I got to read this week. What did you get?
Happy reading!

  5. I thought The Other Life was okay. I was really hoping it would wow me but it didn't. It was still enjoyable though.

    Happy reading!
