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 was lucky enough to snag all three of these for just $5 at a garage sale across the road from my house, so I can't wait to start them, especially as they are all such largely acclaimed novels ! I hope the hype lives up! ;)
I doubt it'll come as a surprise to any of you that I bought this this week - who didn't? I started it and I, unfortunately, don't think this book is for me. Yet, while it's on hold indefinitely at the moment, I fully intend to get back to it when I'm in the mood for a more gritty, character-driven and very adult plot-line.
As a self-proclaiming Lord of the Rings fan, it's downright blasphemy that I haven't read this one yet. I've read everything else Tolkien has written - yes, everything else - except this novel and I figured with the movie releasing soon, I better get started with this one. I. Can't. Wait. I swear, there's nothing quite like Middle Earth! :)
I'd never heard of Rachl Neumeier before I read Heidi's review of this novel on her blog, Bunbury in the Stacks, and from her description itself, I knew I had to buy this one as soon as possible. It sounds fantastic and I simply cannot wait to start it! :)
Well, that's all I got this week! I'm actually incredibly grateful that I didn't receive any ARCs this week as I feel as if I'm already neck-deep in them and have so much catching-up to do. My reading time has also shortened considerably due to school work and most of the time, I'm too exhausted when I come home to do anything but sleep, only to wake up and finish my homework in the wee hours of the morning and sleep again. It's brutal. *sigh* Still, I'm hoping to get some more reading done once I get through all my ARCs for this month, not to mention that Quintana of Charyn is on its way to ME! So! Excited! Anyway, you can finally expect my review of The Raven Boys this week along with my ARC Review of Sanctum which I just finished up and loved. I'm still debating over whether to post up some adult mini-reviews or my review of Brigid Kemmerer's Spark, so if you have a preference, let me know!(:
OH, and link me up, please! I'd love to see what new goodies you all received this week! :D
