Showcase Sunday #2

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.

Hello everyone! Hope you all have had a good week! And this Sunday is particularly good because it's a bank holiday tomorrow! So no commute for me :D.

I went a bit mad last Thursday on publication day so I have got quite a lot of books this week as I also won a few!

Some of the books I received this week had some seriously gorgeous covers! See below:

Physical books:

Three Little Words by Jessica Thompson (Purchased)
The Night Flower by Sarah Stovell (Purchased)
The Gravity of Birds  by Tracey Guzeman (Purchased)
Wicked Wives  by Anna Lou Wetherley (Won)
Dead Rich by Louise Fennel (Won)
It's All About Him by Collette Caddle (Won)
Shades of Appley Green by Miriam Wakerly (Review copy)
The Orchard of Lost Souls by Nadifa Mohamed (Won)


A Jane Austen Daydream by Scott D. Southward (Review copy)
Myopia by Jeff Gardiner (Review copy)

So yes; phew! Quite a few books this week! And I do not think I have won so many books in one week, let alone all year! The books I purchased I have been excited about for a while and all of them have absolutely beautiful covers! I've been wanting to read Wicked Wives for a while, so was really excited when I found out I won a copy! Winning The Orchard of Lost Souls was also a surprise win and it was signed which made it extra special for me.

I got sent A Jane Austen Daydream to review as Scott saw my interview featuring Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List; here I asked Lori a question on what she was reading at the moment and it was A Jane Austen Daydream. Scott wondered if I would like to read and I said definitely! Love novels with anything to do with Jane Austen.

So that is my awesome book haul for this week. Over to you now guys, what  books have you got this week? And do let me know if you have read any of the above?
