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.
Sanctum, believe it or not, if my very first print ARC. Needless to say, I was squealing with excitement upon seeing it on my front door as any other print ARCs I had read were either for blog tours, borrowed, or won from giveaways and this was solely mine. A HUGE thank you to Amazon Children's Publishing for sending me this one! :D
I received After Dark this week for a blog tour and I am so excited to read it! It's not only about vampires or werewolves, but about faeries, dragons, pixies, and just about every other paranormal creature you can think of which sounds incredible. I can't wait to start this one soon, so thank you to J.Taylor Publishing for sending me an ebook of this one! :)
I've been raving and ranting and
impatiently waiting for The Raven Boys ever since I finished Stiefvater's The Scorpio Races last month and while Maggie's new novel was nowhere close to the perfection that The Scorpio Races, it was a compelling mystery of its own. I hope to have my review for this one up later this week!
AAHHH! I can't wait to start this one! I love Libba Bray and have seen nothing but gushing reviews for this one, so I'm 100% sure I'll love it. Plus, it's set in the Roaring 20s! What could go wrong with the setting of The Great Gatsby? ;)
FINALLY! Seriously, it feels as if I've been waiting for this book for decades! I loved The Girl of Fire and Thorns and I am sure that Crown of Embers will be just as - if not more - rewarding.Won:
Wendy, over at The Midnight Garden, held a Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic Giveaway on her blog a few weeks back and...well, I won! I took a picture of all the lovely new books and bookmarks that I won, as well as the postcard Wendy sent me and the extended preview of Laini Taylor's Days of Blood and Starlight that she provided, so thank you so much Wendy! If you haven't already checked out The Midnight Garden, then you should head over there at once! Wendy and K's reviews are some of the best out there and they host tons of giveaways, so really, you're missing out! :)
Well, that's my haul for this week! I feel as if my room is overflowing with books and time is ticking away faster and faster, so I hope I get the chance to read all these incredible new novels. I am so excited about all of them, which is rare since I usually prefer some books to others, but this time, I genuinely can't decide what to start! I'd love to see what the rest of you picked up this week, so link me up! :)
