Showcase Sunday #33

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.

Showcase Sunday #33

Julia by Otto de Kat
The Last Time I Saw You by Eleanor Moran
The Library of Unrequited Love by Sophie Divry

I didn’t really expect any books this week (other than The Starboard Sea below) but Quercus surprised me once again. I’m super excited about Eleanor Moran’s book because it sounds like something I’d enjoy – I’ll keep you posted. I already read The Library of Unrequited Love and will post my review in early February. :)

Showcase Sunday #33 (2)

Out of Reach by Carrie Arcos
The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont

Right. So, a few weeks ago I asked my twittery pals if anyone was interested in a book swap. I had two copies of League of Strays and I knew some of you were dying to read it so instead of doing a giveaway, I decided to give it to someone who I know and who’s genuinely interested in the book. Faye from A Daydreamer’s Thoughts was one of them so this is how we ended up swapping ARCs and this is how I got The Starboard Sea.

Out of Reach (which has been on my wishlist for a pretty long time) is from Racquel @ The Book Barbies. Racquel had a birthday giveaway on her blog back in November and I was the lucky winner. Thank you, R!!!!

In other news, I passed all three of my exams so I’m FINALLY back to the blogging world. *hugs laptop* I missed you guys!

Did you get anything nice this week? If you did a Showcase Sunday post, make sure to link up below or leave a comment with a link to your own book haul post so that I can visit you back. x

  8. Great haul.

    Only problem is that seeing more great books on your haul (Julia, The Library of Unrequited Love and Out Of Reach) means that I’ll just have to add them on to my Wish list. (Sigh)

    Enjoy all of your reads for this week.

  19. Huge YAY! for passing your exams. Congrats! I passed mine, too, and now I just have to finish this paper I’m currently writing and then I’m somewhat free. Except for work and an internship during my semester break. :(

    To be honest, I’ve only heard of OUT OF REACH so far, but I really like the sound of it and am contemplating to get a copy. Looking forward to hear what you think of it. Happy reading!
