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 was your week? Are you enjoying the sunshine? We’ve had surprisingly great weather this week (considering that it’s England we’re talking about, it was rather on the hot side) so I tried to spend as much time as I could outdoors and soak up the sun in my lunch breaks.
Do you guys have anything exciting planned for the summer holidays?
I had a brilliant week book-wise (especially compared to the past few weeks, when I was too busy with the new job and moving house to go book shopping) and got four shiny new books in the post. I was reading Cat Clarke’s Undone this week and a few chapters in I fell in love with her writing. I absolutely loved the main character, Cat’s style and… basically everything about it, so I decided to go and buy some of her other stuff. I asked you lovely lot on Twitter which one you’d recommend and most of you said Entangled, so it was a no-brainer. And since I loved the sound of Torn as well, I decided to take both. I’ve been meaning to read more YA this year anyway, so I’m really glad I found a new favourite author to add to my ever growing list.
Matthew Quick’s Boy21 was sent for review by the Bookbridgr team – I absolutely loved Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, so I have high expectations for this one. The Winter Foundlings was a surprise from Mulholland Books – I haven’t read the author’s previous books but I love psychological thrillers so fingers crossed it’s going to be my cup of tea. Thanks, guys!
