Showcase Sunday #3

Considering I am on a book buying ban, I think I did well this week; I've also just realised that I accidentally missed out the rest of the books that I won from Goodreads; I will have to add them to my next Showcase Sunday roundup. Luckily enough, my mum bought me all these whilst we were in town on Friday - thanks Mum!

I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk  - 50p from a charity shop - much as I love Lindsey Kelk and have read most of her books, I also don't actually have them all in my collection. When I saw this, I had to have it!

The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher: A Shocking Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Detective  by Kate Summerscale - 50p from the same charity shop; keep hearing good things about this book so for that price, why not?

The next four were from a local shop that is kind of a bookshop, kind of a charity shop - not entirely sure what to define it as. It had 3 hardback fictions for £1 and 3 hardback biographies/autobiographies for £1 too - of course, I bought 4 and they were selling hardbacks separately at £1 - should have just picked up 2 extra biographies really!

Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris - 3 for £1 - Everyone raves about True Blood so I thought I'd see what the fuss was about.

The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell - 3 for £1As a big Sex And The City fan, I had banned myself from watching the TV adaptation of this until I had read the book. I picked this up within seconds of walking into the shop!

Hitman by Bret Hart - £1 - You may not know this about me but I am a huge wrestling and WWE fan and am really trying to build up my collection of biographies and autobiographies. When I saw this, I knew I had to have it!

Cell by Stephen King - 3 for £1 - I posted this picture on Instagram earlier and was instantly told that it gave someone nightmares...what have I let myself in for?

What books did you receive this week?
