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.

Hello amigos – how are you on this cold winter morning? How was your week? I’ve had another crazy week at uni (including staying up until 3 a.m to finish reading a book for class, writing a 2000-word essay the night before the actual deadline and other equally ‘pleasant’ things) so this weekend was all about sleeping, sleeping and even more sleeping. The good news is that we only have two more weeks left from this term – thank goodness! The bad news is, however, that I still won’t have much time for reading for fun, since endterms are coming up and my exams start in January. Boo! I don’t think I’ll take a blogging break but I won’t be able to read more or post more reviews than I did in the past few weeks.
In other news, I did get something nice this week! After realizing that a) I’ve waaaay more books than my hectic schedule allows me to read and b) my to-be-reviewed pile is insane I’m sort of on a book buying/requesting ban again. BUT! Hodder & Stoughton and Belinda Jones had this fun competition on Facebook a few weeks ago where you had to submit a question for Belinda and she picked the 10 best/most fun/creative ones who won the goody bag above. And I was one of the lucky winners! I’m SO excited about Winter Wonderland since I’ve head lots of great things about it. And I LOVE cookie cutters. Just love them. I know what I’ll be doing next weekend 😉 Thank you Belinda (and Hodder)!
Also, if you’re looking for some nice Christmassy books, check out the new ‘Books for Christmas‘ feature above – I update it daily and there are quite a lot of freebies as well. (Just scroll all the way down to the bottom)
