Showcase Sunday #1

Showcase sundayHello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. SS is a weekly blog hop hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits and Tea where we showcase what books and bookish things we have received in the past week.     This past week has been pretty good for books! I have been on a ban for the past few months though so I though I deserved a splurge! 🙂 This is what I got this week!

Today’s book haul! #bookhaul #halfbad #sallygreen #throneofglass #sarahjmaas #thirteen #fangirl #rainbowrowell #myposts

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Half Bad by Sally Green

Thirteen by Tom Hoyle

The first three books were planned. I have seen Half Bad everywhere so when I saw it for £4 I could not resist. Thirteen was unplanned, but the cover art is stunning so this I had to peep at the synopsis. It is a dystopia and it looks fab!

Next up I got this:

Penguin Drop Caps are stunning! Here is my first of many!

It was on offer on Amazon and I regret nothing.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (Penguin Drop Caps Edition)

This is what I got in the past week! I was very happy indeed. Let me know if you have read any of these and leave me a link so I can stop by and check out your haul!

      The Assassins Blade was only £3.50 in Asda. I would recommend getting it, even for the cover art! 🙂

    Yay for pretty books!! I’m hoping to finally get The Assassin’s Blade this week, it’s been out for a few weeks but I haven’t had the chance to yet. Fangirl and Half Bad I want to read at some point, and I’ve heard good things about the first one. That Pride and Prejudice looks so cool, definitely worth getting it I think.
    Have a great week!

    Fangirl!!! Anything by Rainbow Rowell is a hit for me! Fangirl was such a cute, coming of age story, I hope you enjoy Cath’s story as much as I did! And oh my, that cover for Pride and Prejudice is beyond stunning. Penguin did a great job! Enjoy your reads =)
