Showcase Sunday #18

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.

This week on Books, Biscuits, and Tea

Just like August, Review Copy Cleanup is slowly coming to an end so I spent this week trying to catch up with reading some of my review books. I’m currently reading my 6th book (which is marvellous news because reading 6 books was my initial goal) but we still have almost an entire week left and I’m hoping to finish one more. Fingers crossed! All in all, it was a pretty quiet week but I managed to post two reviews – they are suitable for both the young adult and adult generation so do check them out if you’re looking for a new book. :)

♦ On Tuesday I reviewed Carnage by Maxime Chattam (5/5)
♦ And yesterday I posted my review of To Turn Full Circle by Linda Mitchelmore (4/5)

Incoming books (for review)

Alone in the Classroom by Elizabeth Hay
Lifesaving for Beginners by Ciara Geraghty
All the Little Animals by Walker Hamilton
The Wolf Princess by Cathryn Constable

Aaaand here’s what I got this week! Lots of fantastic September/October releases I cannot wait to read! I wasn’t expecting them at all (except for All the Little Animals) but they all sound brilliant! Also, The Wolf Princess came all wrapped up in purple wrapping paper and when I opened it, there were a bunch of glittery purple/silver gems included with the book. How creative is that? And you can’t see it in the photo but actually the sides of the book are purple as well. Adore! Many thanks to Quercus, Hodder & Stoughton, Freight Books, and Chicken House for the review copies!

So, this is it guys! How was your week and what have you all been up to? What books did you get? As always, 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. Have a nice weekend and see you soon!

  6. The Wolf Princess looks pretty great to me, but it’s probably because I’m such a cover snob. I’ll need to look into it, though, I’m curious.

    Alone In The Classroom sounds interesting, I hope it’s a good read! Lifesaving for Beginners sounds like it will be good, too, I like books where two people’s stories are woven together unexpectedly. Happy reading!

    All the little Animals seems awesome. I hope you will review this book here. I just finished reading an entertaining thrilling book – Doing Max Vinyl which dealt with a serious subject of – E Waste. It didn’t preach at all, diverse characters and an action packed plot made for a good read and the message came across.

    Congrats on meeting your initial goals to reading and reviewing six books :)

    The Wolf Princess looks lovely, and Alone in the Classroom seems sad but interesting.

    Have a wonderful week enjoying the summer!

    Your 6th review book? You rock! That’s fantastic! :-) I finished my third, and I’m still hoping to squeeze in at least one more this week. My goal was seven, but…yeah, not gonna happen haha. Wolf Princess has a gorgeous cover, and I love that it was wrapped up like a present, how cool!

      Yes! And I actually took a one-week break at some point and read two of my own books… :o I don’t know how I managed to read this much. :D Well, there’s always next time, though. And we still have a few days left!
