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 and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders this week.
I had been having a bit of a new book lull lately- well that's over! I got some amazing books lately! With it being my birthday, and going away last week, this is two weeks worth of goodies.
It must be obvious that I really like books! Over my birthday I got this gorgeous book locket, this cute bookmark, and this awesome book clock. With my birthday money I have also treated myself to a new kindle touch.
I also got For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund. Goodreads. A new dystopian re-telling of my favourite Jane Austen book Persuasion, which sounds amazing and which I'm so excited to read.
From the library:
Defiance by C.J Redwine Goodreads. This is a YA fantasy and it sounds so amazing.
The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long. Goodreads. This is descibed as "a mix of romance, fairytale and suspense"- sounds good to me!
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Goodreads. I absolutely love the sound of this book, which is a YA sci-fi. Most of the reviews I have seen have been fangirling 5 star reviews. I have high hopes.
Betrayal by Gregg Olsen. Goodreads. This is book 2 in the Empty Coffin series about psychic twins Hayley and Taylor. I read the first in the series (Envy) last year and really enjoyed it. Eerie and clever, I'm looking forward to reading this one.
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. Goodreads. This is another one that I'm really looking forward to reading. I love the sound of it- a twist on the mythology of mermaids.
The Diviners by Libba Bray. Goodreads. I have no idea what it's about but I absolutely love Libba Bray, so of course I'm going to read it!
The Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Frater. Goodreads. This is an author that isn't very widely known but whenever I see a review of one of her books on blogs it is always amazing. This book has a 4.48 star average on Goodreads, which is incredible. And after reading The First Days by this author recently and LOVING it, I know she can write. This is a futuristic zombie novel.
Huh- so a lot of blue/green/grey covers this week. A whole bunch of awesome looking books though, and I'm looking forward to reading them all.
