Showcase Sunday #1

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vickie at Books Biscuits and Tea. The aim of this event 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. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.

This is my first Showcase Sunday post and when I heard about I thought it was a really good idea. I love seeing and hearing about what everyone has bought or been sent book wise. So thought I would show you some of my book buys and book post :).

1. Mutton by India Knight (Bought)

2. Shift by Hugh Howey (Bought)

3. Snapper by Brian Kimberling (Review copy)

4. Amity and Sorrow by Peggy Riley (Review Copy)

5. Getting Rooted in New Zealand by Jamie Baywood (Review copy)

6. A Heart Bent Out of Shape by Emylia Hall (Review copy)

7. The Debt and the Doormat by Laura Bernard (Review copy)

I received and bought some awesome books this week! It was a very good week for books. I also received an unexpected book which was Snapper by Brian Kimberling, so will be very interested to read that one! I am also looking forward to reading Mutton by India Knight as the last book I read from her was Comfort and Joy and it was hilarious, so looking forward to some laughs in this one! Amity and Sorrow is also a book I'm keen to read, my Mum said it sounds like her sort of book, so I will be passing it on to her when I've finished.

Over to you everyone, what have you received or bought this week? Would love to know! I will be doing this blog post every Sunday as it such a good idea. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :).
