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 received Anderson's The Impossible Knife of Memory awhile back but still haven't gotten around to reading it, simply because I am terrified of issue books. I will, however, read it because the reviews for it have been simply stunning so far. I did, though, read both The Art of Lainey, which I really enjoyed, and Royally Lost, which I didn't care much for. Red Rising is the next ARC I'm planning to tackle - I have high expectations for this one! - and I have no doubt that both The Vanishing Season and Of Metal and Wishes will be spectacular as I love their authors so much.
I've loved both these books from the moment I first read them a few years back and have finally gone out and bought copies for myself to read and re-read. And yes, I really did go through the lengths to acquire the cover of Chime shown above. I absolutely detest the new paperback. *shudders*
I absolutely LOVED Jenn Bennett's latest, Bitter Spirits, and though I wasn't a fan of Roses, I am hoping to enjoy the rest of my library haul. I have a fair mix of Adult and YA Novels, from old favorites such as Sarah Addison Allen and Swati Avasthi to new authors I am excited to try like Yangszhe Choo and Rachel Bach. Either way, my reading schedule looks quite good for the coming weeks! (And, hopefully, these books can carry me through the endless wait for A Storm of Swords as it takes forever to become available in my library!)
What new books have you received this week? I'd love to see, so link me up if I haven't already stopped by to visit! :)
