Showcase Sunday #17: I’m Baack!

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.

Well, well, well. Looks like my first year of university has ended.  I have not blogged as much as I would like but I thought I should come back with something that we all know and love: a book haul!

As much as I have not been blogging, one thing that I have kept up with is the amount of book buying! Here is what I got recently:

 

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

A Song for Issy Bradley by Carys Bray

The Lie by CL Taylor 

Rogue by Julie Kagawa (Talon Saga #1)

The Two of Us by Andy Jones 

Shoes for Anthony by Emma Kennedy

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent 

The Sin Eater’s Daughter  by Melinda Salisbury

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman 

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab 

Half the World by Joe Abercrombie (Shattered Sea #2)

 So these are all of the books I got in the last few weeks. I got these all from my local book store which I love supporting. Let me know what you guys got in the comments below!

Land by Alex Campbell

I got some great books this week! Looking forward to The Iron Trial the most! I requested Us for review and I ended up getting and winning one of the signed ones. So happy! Alex Campbell was lovely enough to send me a copy of her new novel Land. You can check here twitter out here. The funny thing about this is that we are both called Alex so it looks like I signed this to myself.

Here all the books I got this week! Have you heard of any of these or read them? Let me know in the comments! Leave linkies to your hauls so I can stop by. Have a great week!

Here is something that happened this week. I bought some people clothes for my dogs… Enjoy.

Showcase Sunday #15: The Buying Ban Is Out Of The Window

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.

The book buying ban is well and truly out of the window this week! I went in to my local store and bought a few books and the proceeded to buy a few more at some point in the past few weeks. They are all good books and I will read them all in the next couple of months.

Here are some of the books I got this week!

Treated myself to some books this week! Got the new paperback of When Mr.Dog Bites, a couple of the Penguin Essentials Collection, a bit of #UKYA and then a couple of newly released fantasy novels to keep me on my toes! :) <br /> The ones I am looking forward to the most are When Mr. Dog Bites &amp; The Girl With All The Gifts :) 

Just bought/in the process of buying The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. Loved the blurb and adore the cover so it is win/win #theminiaturist #jessieburton

All these books are bought. Do pardon the huge arty photos but I thought I might as well take them from my Instagram since they are of a decent quality! As always, clicky the links for Goodreads.

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey
When Mr. Dog Bites by Brian Conaghan
Stolen by Lucy Christopher
The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa (The Immortal Rules #3)
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

My favourite one to get started with is The Girl With All the Gifts. I have heard amazing things about this one! My favourite cover goes to The Miniaturist! It looks absolutely adorable!

Here are all the books I got in the past few weeks. It is not bad compared to the good old days. Hopefully I will get to all of these soon! What did you guys get this week? Leave a link below!
