Showcase Sunday (#11)

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.

Cold Kiss (Cold Kiss, #1) by Amy Garvey 
I actually picked this one up earlier this week when it was still free on the Kindle, so I was lucky enough to remember to buy it before the deal expired. I've heard a lot about this one and the cover is beautiful, so I'm looking forward to reading it soon!

For Review: 
I still cannot believe I'm about to read this! Rebel Heart released in the UK awhile back, but poor US Residents like me have to wait till October to read this one, but I'm reading it now! *squeals* I think I brought my neighbors running out of their houses when I received this in the mail, so I am very excited to finally read it! *happy dances*

I've been stalking Kelly Creagh's blog ever since I finished Nevermore, which was one of my favorite novels to release last year, so I am so excited to finally read this one! I know I'm going to love it, so I'm saving it for a rainy day when Edgar Allen Poe is exactly what I need! ;) 
I've been quite excited about this novel, mainly because it's a fantasy book with a beautiful cover, but I wasn't too impressed. I should have an official review of this up later this week though, so look out for that!
My copy of Spark came two days late, which naturally made me a very grumpy person. BUT, it finally arrived and I finished it within a few hours. I didn't enjoy it as much as Storm unfortunately, but it was still an amazing sequel!

I've heard a lot about David Levithan in the past, even though I haven't read any of his books yet, so I'm very curious to see what the hype about his novels are about! 
Goodness, I am so excited to read this! I've seen nothing but gushing reviews of this one and was so upset I didn't pre-order it, but my friend it letting me borrow it from her when she's finished with it and I can't wait to start it myself! :D
*fans self* Wow, just look at that cover! I actually hadn't heard of this one until two days back, but when I saw it in my library, I knew I had to pick it up. It sounds fantastic so I can't wait to read it! 

Well, that's all I got this week! I have some ARC Reviews coming in this month, namely Ironskin which will go up tomorrow, Shadowfell later this week, and Ashen Winter late next week, so keep your eyes peeled for those! :) What new lovelies did you snag this week?


  1. I just finished Defiance this afternoon and..... meh. That pretty much sums up my entire thoughts on the book, which sucks because I had huge expectations! OOOOH ENSHADOWED! I can't wait to see what you think! I hope it's as good as Nevermore.

    AND HELLO THERE GABRIEL MERRICK *wiggles eyebrows*

    I am dying to get my hands on The Lost Girl and The Dark Light (um, yes. That cover. Yes. Yes. Yes)... ugh, I think I'm going to have to splurge soon, even though my bank account won't like it!

    Smokin' hot haul this week, happy reading! :)

  2. Like Brodie, I finished Defiance recently (yesterday night) and actually enjoyed it although it wasn't what I expected at all!

    SPARK! GAH, I am dying to read this book! ME NEED SOME GABRIEL MERRICK. And *points up* BRODIE HAS READ IT! Me so jealous :P

    REBEL HEART! Oh gosh, I am DYING to read this book too. I've read Blood Red Road and the ending made me desperate to get the sequel! I hope there's more Jack in the sequel ;)

    Awesome books this week, Keertana! ♥ Hope you enjoy all the books and happy reading!

  3. Was Rebel Heart already released in the UK? I didn't know. Well good on the UK! We always get EVERYTHING later than it's in the US and it annoys me!! Mwahaha, we have Rebel Heart first. Not that it makes a difference to me, since I haven't read the first one.

    You got The Dark Light, I didn't even realise it had been released. I'll have to buy it at some point since my library won't get it in, but it looks really good. Although isn't it a love triangle?

    Looks like a really big haul (as usual), but I'm sure you'll devour your way through these! :)

  4. Spark! I loved it too, but I did enjoy it more than the first one. Maybe because I preferred Gabriel to Chris. I can't wait to read your review! :) I'm so excited for Enshadowed too, as you know. The first book was a great read for me and I'm eager to get stuck into the sequel soon. And wow, the cover of The Dark Light is HOT. I'll admit, it's the prime reason I want to read that book. ;)

    Brilliant haul, Keertana! I hope you enjoy your books. :)

  5. Are we the same person?

    Seriously. I have been stalking Kelly Creagh's blog as well after finishing Nevermore and was disappointed every time the release date got pushed back.

    No matter, though. I finally have Enshadowed in my hands as well.

    Happy reading :-)

  6. You have Rebel Heart?? I'm envious. ;) I hope you like it as much as Blood Red Road. :) I've also been hearing fantastic things about David Levithan, so I look forward to your review of it as well. Enjoy your goodies, Keertana! You've got yourself a wonderful haul. :)

  7. Oooh, you got some really good books, Keertana! I can't wait to read Defiance - though it doesn't sound original, it's still one of the novels that I'm most looking forward to.
    Enshadowed looks pretty promising as well, but since I disliked Nevermore - almost hated it - I think I'll pass this one D:

    And The DArk Light... man, look at that cover. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

    I hope you enjoy your new books, Keertana! Looking forward to your review on Ironskin! :D

  8. Defiance, Lost girl & Every day, awesome! Happy reading :D

    My showcase Sunday.

  9. Awesome haul! :) I need to read Defiance, Spark and Cold Kiss, they all look fantastic. I hope you enjoy all your books! :)

  11. You read really FAST!!! The cover of The Dark Light looks gorgeous :) And congrats on receiving Rebel Heart!! Have a wonderful week.

    Here is my Showcase Sunday post.

  12. I really need to read Nevermore! It doesn't sound like my thing but people LOVE IT. Plus, with the sequel out, I should really get to it. I'm so excited for Defiance and Every Day. I hope you enjoy your books x

  13. Wow, so many great books! I really need to order Enshadowed as I absolutely adored Nevemore! Actually, every book you got I want :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, happy reading!

  14. Wow- so many great books there! I can't wait to read Rebel Heart, and I've heard nothing but good things about Defiance and Lost Girl.

  15. You have some pretty good books. Here's what I got this week

  16. I got Enshadowed too, Keertana. I loved Nevermore and I'm so excited (although also a little afraid) to read it. Hope we don't have to wait another 2 years for the last book. :/ I also snatched up Cold Kiss for free on Amazon. I'm happy about that because I've heard good things. Rebel Heart! So jealous. Loved the first one. Happy reading Keertana. :)

  17. I got Cold Kiss too :P I reviewed it last year. It was weird, but okay. Every Day is also kind of weird, but interesting!

    Here's what I got this week!

  18. Great haul! So excited for Defiance, The Lost Girl, and I seriously need to read Nevermore and Enshadowed!

  19. Ah Every Day! I've been wanted to read that for a long time since I heard about it. His other writings are really fun and well-written so I hope you enjoy this one! :)

  20. t's awesome that we both got Defiance. While I was at the bookstore I was debating buying Every Day too since I'm going to see the author at YALLfest. I need to get a copy of Enshadowed also. Hope you enjoy all your books!

  21. I've been reading excellent things about Lost Girl and I am hoping to read Every Day soon! Enjoy your haul!
