Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicki at Books, Biscuits and Tea. Its aim is 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.
I've been meaning to pick up a novel by Sarah Beth Durst since I first heard her praise, nearly two years ago. Vessel, for some reason, lost my attention within only a few pages and the mixed reviews have prevented me from going back to it. The Lost, I hope, will prove to finally ingratiate me into her fandom. *fingers crossed* Jennifer Brown's Torn Away will also be my first venture into her work. After reading Lara Zielin's The Waiting Sky last year, also about a tornado, I knew I had to pick up Brown's latest, so let's hope it doesn't disappoint. As for these other titles, they're self-explanatory. I adored Kuehn's debut Charm and Strange, I loved Moriarty's A Corner of White, Marillier has been a long-time favorite of mine, Brown's Born of Illusion proved to be a pleasant surprise, Sarah Ockler is one of the few contemporary authors I read without prompting, and Mary Ann Rivers's Live left me speechless.
What did you receive this week? I love checking out book hauls, so be sure to link me! :)
