Showcase Sunday #9: I Got Something To Read Books On!

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 is a combination of this week and last weeks hauls. I think I have done okay in terms of buying books. One thing I did get that cost me some pennies was something to read all of my Ebooks on! πŸ™‚

I finally got me some kindle! This the Kindle 4 and I had a voucher so I got it for Β£45 which is not a bad deal at all! I was a bit reluctant at first to get it but it makes it such much easier for review books!

I am probably one of the most painfully clumsy people in existence. I smash glasses weekly and I am forever dropping things. All of my gadgets have very sturdy covers. My kindle is no exception. I got this case from Tesco and it was on offer for Β£3.50. I could not help myself. I also love the pattern on it with all the minivans on it!

Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

I have heard some amazing things about all three of these. I have already read Fire and Flood and Cinder. They were both amazing and reviews are to come!

This is what I Β have got in the past two weeks! I am glad I am finally on the Kindle bandwagon! I love reading on it. Have you guys read any of these? If so, what did you think?

Have a great week everyone!

    You now own three books I really wish I had! Congrats! πŸ™‚ I haven’t gotten the chance to read Cinder and all I ever hear is how amazing that entire series is, so enjoy!!! I became a fan of Kasie West with her science fiction series but I have wanted to try her new adult stuff, and The Distance Between Us looks too cute. Fire & Flood is another one on my want list. Fabulous new additions, hope they are all wonderful reads!

    Have a beautiful week!!!

      It is so nice to read on. I have only had it a week and I think I have read 3 books! I love it :3

      Fire and Flood is brilliant! I hope you get to it soon so we can compare notes! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by April! πŸ™‚ xx

    Ooh! A kindle! Whenever I see one I want to get one, even though I have the kindle apps on my phone and iPad. I think I just like the idea of being able to see the screen when you’re reading outside! And it really does make reviewing books so much easier, doesn’t it?

    I loved Fire and Flood, and I have Cinder and The Distance Between Us, but haven’t read them yet!

    I love my Kindle and hope you love yours too. The cover you got is so cute.

    Fire & Flood is soooo good. I didn’t review it and I’m actually thinking of rereading (which I never do) just so I can review it. I may wait until closer to the release of the next book, so the details from F&F will be fresh in my mind when I get to it.

    Yay, you got a Kindle! I hope you like them… the Kindle 4 was my first ever Kindle and it was such a handy thing to carry around. Imagine, so many books in a small piece of rectangle thingy O_O I got inclined to read even more cause of it (before I got one, I’d read, like, 2-3 books a year… so lame!)

    In any case, you’re starting Cinder. YAY!!! I hope you like it! That series is my absolute favorite πŸ™‚

    Woot woot for the kindle! I hope you enjoy it as well as your books. You will probably like Cinder as I did and I don’t normally like sci-fi or dystopian that much and I thought it was really πŸ™‚ Enjoy and thanks for stopping by my blog.


  6. Jessica @ a GREAT read says:

    OOoh nice! I have a kindle as well! Funny story, my sister bought me a kobo on year for xmas, but I couldn’t get it to work so we returned it and got a kindle instead. About a month later, I won a kindle online! Luckily I kept it a secret, and gifted it to my mom for her bday! I didn’t have a job at the time so it worked out great! I love my kindle for reading e-arcs and other e-novellas.

    Although I find myself needing to upgrade it possibly, because I really want to read Julie Kagawa’s graphic novels which are ebook only, but my kindle is too old for a e-graphic novel. Hence my need to possibly upgrade!

    Hope you enjoy your shiny new kindle and your one unread ebook!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

      That is a good idea! and it is the thought that counts to be honest? ooh that;s a shame? The kindle fire is pretty good, can you read on them ones?

      Thank you very much my dear! I love reading on it now. I read a lot quicker and comfier!

      Thanks for stopping by! I’ll pop back in the morning! πŸ™‚ xxx

    I love my Kindle, I read on it all the time! I was a little skeptical on it myself but now I love it. πŸ˜€ And if I don’t like the book on it atm, I pick up a paper one. I can read 2 books at the time all the time πŸ˜€ And yes, it’s so much easier reading ARCs!
    Great haul! Love the cover with the mini vans as well πŸ˜€

    Happy reading!
