Showcase Sunday #21

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 have all had a good week. I am so relieved to have had the weekend, it's been a bit of an exhausting week, but it ended off nicely last night when I went to the Choc lit event and met the lovely people of choc lit, authors and bloggers :). Now onto books!

Thanks to the lovely Zarina, I have five wonderful sounding books to read and I have particularly had my eye of The Memory of Midnight for a while! It was my birthday last week and I LOVE the two books I got. Both of them have had amazing reviews so far, so I cannot wait to get stuck in. I love the cover of Sugar and Spice from Choc lit, it's just so pretty and PINK! I will be doing a blog post for next week on the event. I had such a good time. Emma Hannigan's book Perfect Wives is another one I'm looking forward to as I have read one other of Emma's books and loved the way she writes, so have high hopes for this one. So another great week for books!

What have you all received/bought/borrowed? Do let me know! Have a great Sunday everyone!


  1. I haven't heard about any of these but there are some pretty covers. And Ash sounds like a great read. Happy reading!

  2. Oh, I got Ash too this week! Here's to hoping it's good, it's my next read.
    Great haul you have, and I'm totally jealous of you going to the Choc Lit event. Every Choc Lit book I've read has been great.

  3. What lovely new books! A Hundred Pieces of Me is on my wish list.

    My Sunday post:

    1. It has such a pretty cover and sounds amazing! I tried to comment on your blog, but couldn't get it to work.

  4. Wow. You've received a lot of books this week. I really like the cover for The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls. There's something very art deco and great Gatsby about it :)

    1. It was an ARC cover and I think I prefer it :)

  5. Wow! So many books, how do you find the time to read them all?

    1. With difficulty lol. But my commute to work everyday,lunchtime and evening means I get about 4-5 hours reading done every day :)

    2. With difficulty lol. I get about 4-5 hours reading time a day :)

  6. Happy belated birthday!
    The Midnight of Memory and Ash sound fantastic!
    Great haul.
