Hello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. 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. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.
Hello everyone! It’s nice to see you again Can you believe it’s our 10th Showcase Sunday week already?
Also, happy July everyone! I’ll do a blog post about it (along with my plans for July, some books, etc) tomorrow but *drumroll* I’m back from my blogging break! Which means that I’ll be back next week with new posts, new reviews, new books, new energy and new plans. Huzzah!! And I also have a fantastic book haul to show you this week:
♦ No Time For Goodbye by Linwood Barclay (purchased)
♦ The Truth About Melody Browne by Lisa Jewell (purchased)
♦ Numbers by Rachel Ward (won)
♦ A Message to Your Heart by Niamh Greene (for review)
♦ From Doon With Death by Ruth Rendell (purchased)
♦ The Black Ice by Michael Connelly(purchased)
♦ The Last Temptation by Van McDermid(purchased)
♦ The Wire In The Blood by Val McDermid (purchased)
As you can see this week has been…quite busy! Numbers was actually part of last week’s haul, as I mentioned, but I forgot to include it in my list and take a photo then. This book has been on my wishlist for ages so I was really excited when I won a copy from Sally at Always Lost in Stories last month. Thank you so much Sally! A Message to Your Heart is a review copy from the lovely Niamh Greene and Penguin Ireland and again, I can’t wait to pick this up. I just adore this cover – it definitely has a summery feel to it and it reminds me a little bit of Sophie Kinsella’s I’ve Got Your Number which I absolutely loved, so I hope it’s going to be great! Thank you Niamh and Penguin Ireland!
As for the other six books, I found a brilliant (Hungarian) second-hand online bookshop last week which sells English and German books. When I was flicking through their catalogue I found these six beauties and even though my to-be-read pile is getting out of control, I just couldn’t resist the temptation. I mean, they were like £2 each… and they’ve been on my wishlist for a while! (And even though they’re used, they’re in good condition)
Anyway, that’s it for this week! What did you all get? Make sure to leave a link to your own Showcase Sunday post in the linky below – and feel free to leave a comment after linking up and I’ll visit you back asap! xxx
