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 everyone! How are you all? Are you having a nice weekend? I’m having a lazy day for a change. I went into town yesterday and ended up going shopping (I fell in love with a cute little dress) but today is all about reading. I might have to go and buy some snacks but other than that, I’m staying in bed with my book and my cup of tea, thank you.
Both of this week’s books are charity shop finds: I went to Stratford-upon-Avon with a friend last weekend and we went into one of the local charity shops on Sunday, where I found a copy of Mark Billingham’s Sleepyhead. It was only £1.45 and I’ve been meaning to check out his books for a while, so I couldn’t leave it there.
I found Looking for Alaska in one of our local charity shops yesterday and I couldn’t resist buying it. I’ve heard millions of amazing things about it from you guys and about John Green’s books in general so I want to give it a try. And it was only 50p. If that’s not a bargain then I don’t know what is.
Have you read either of these books yet? What did you think?
