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.
What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton
I was so excited to receive this one in the mail this week, especially as it's for my very first blog tour! I love the sound of this dark and compelling contemporary debut, so I hope it lives up to all my expectations for it!
Swell by Julie Rieman Duck
I actually received Swell a few weeks ago and completely forgot to add it to my Showcase Sunday post as my review for this is only going up in November. I plan on reading it soon though, so I'm curious to see how the issue of alcoholism is tackled in this fascinating new romance!
Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1) by Sarah Rees Brennan
I love Sarah Rees Brennan. Not only is she an author who writes well and has some of the most original ideas I've seen, but her execution of them is surprisingly hilarious and her books, more than being wonderful and fantastic, are just so much fun to read! Needless to say, I was squealing like the fangirl that I am when I received this in the mail and I wound up staying up till 2 AM to finish this one, despite my drooping eyelids and it was so worth it! I'm posting my review of this one tomorrow, but if you can't wait to read it, you can check it out on GoodReads along with my pre-review of the sequel! :)
I haven't made my excitement for this book too much of a secret, so I was thrilled to be the first one in my town to find it and snatch it from its snug library shelves. Unfortunately, I don't see myself having the time to start this anytime soon, but I can't wait to begin it eventually! It seems to be a fantastic read and Marr rarely disappoints!
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
I don't read a lot of adult novels, let alone adult romance, but this one was so compelling that I just had to pick it up. I read it in between my classes and stayed up late during school nights to finish this one because it was simply un-put-down-able and I loved it! It was a lot deeper and more character driven than I expected a romance to be and I was so pleasantly surprised by this as the synopsis for this story really is quite misleading. Still, if you're looking for a steamy romance with lots of character development, this one is for you! ;)
The City's Son (The Skyscraper Throne, #1) by Tom Pollock
I've heard a LOT about this book lately and I just want to dive into it and read. It sounds exactly like the type of novel I would love, especially as it's urban fantasy, so I hope I get the time to start this one sometime this week!
I didn't pick up too many books this week, although I wanted to snag more books from my library, but I just don't have the time to read them all. In all honesty, my priority is actually reading The Raven Boys the moment it releases as I am DYING to get my hands on it. I'm also excited for a lot of other releases this week, but as long as I can get The Raven Boys, it's all good! ;) It's unfortunate that my reading time has been so drastically cut down with school, but I am enjoying my classes, however difficult they may be, and finding time to read too!(: Anyway, what new novels did you pick up this week? Link me up! :D
