Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight 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 each week.

Hello, how are you all? I’ve had another busy and exhausting week. *yawns, stretches* I’ve been pretty much reading and working on uni assignments 24/7 and it’s not nearly over yet. Anyway… let’s see the books first!
*does a little happy dance* Well hello, new Sophia Bennett book! I don’t know if you guys remember but I read/reviewed her previous book (The Look) this time last year and I absolutely loved it. I had no idea a new book was about to be published but thanks to Jo at Once Upon a Bookcase, I do now. Long story short, I’ve been following Jo’s blog since she and three other panelists took part in a blogging related discussion at the London Book Fair earlier this month. A few weeks ago (or was it only last week?!) Jo featured Sophia’s new book in her weekly book haul post and not only did she make me realise there was a new book coming out shortly but she was lovely enough to send me her copy. Thanks so much, Jo! The other two books are unsolicited review copies from Quercus. Isn’t A Life Apart gorgeous, by the way? Me and my dad were pretty much drooling over the cover when it landed on our doorstep the other day. 😀 It’s definitely one of the prettiest covers I’ve seen lately. I’m not sure Three Strong Women will be my cup of tea but A Life Apart does sound rather interesting and I’ll definitely give it a try once my exams are over.
