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 all? How was your week? Can you believe it’s our last Showcase Sunday in July? I don’t know where the past few weeks went but I’m really looking forward to August. July was busy but August is shaping up to be even busier – and I’m off to Spain at the end of next month! I can’t wait. But, until then, I have lots of bookish goodies to show you.
With the exception of Erin Lange’s Dead Ends, this week’s haul turned out to be a ‘signed books’ haul – which is kind of a rare thing, as I don’t usually get so many signed books at the same time. Anyway, first things first. Like so many of you, I was at YALC two weeks ago, where I got to meet Rainbow Rowell. We were all allowed to get two RR books signed and, although I had Landline with me, I decided to buy a copy of Attachments before the signing because I’ve been meaning to read it for ages.
Earlier this week, I was invited to a dinner with author Andrew Smith and the Penguin UK / Egmont team which was amazing – I’ll blog about it next week so keep your eyes peeled – and I also got a copy of each of his books, signed by Andrew himself. I’m really looking forward to reading them both!
Dead Ends is the newest addition to my TBR pile (many thanks to Faber & Faber for the review copy) and one I’ve been dying to read for a long time. In fact, I’m dying to read both of Erin’s books – I’ve heard great things about Butter as well.
What books did you get this week? Have you read any of these four? If you did a Showcase Sunday post this weekend, make sure to link up below. Take care and see you soon!
