Showcase Sunday

Yes, it is me again back with another book haul - I know the other girls have been picking up books too - do you want me to get them involved in Showcase Sunday? Here are what I am adding to my bookshelves this week...

Ten - Gretchen McNeil - I received this and read it the day it arrived. This has been on my wishlist for a very long time so I had to finally buy it off Amazon. I loved it but think I would have loved it more had I not read And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie before it. Full review to come soon.

Resist - Sarah Crossan - The second book in the Breathe series, I had to pick it up to find out what happened next. I didn't even realise this was already out until Megan Olivier over on Youtube told me. Oops!

The Girl Who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson - I read the first in the Millennium Trilogy and loved it but hadn't yet picked up the next two books. I saw the two I needed for 70p each and picked them up as I thought it was such a bargain. They are a little beaten up but it just shows how loved they are!

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest -Stieg Larsson - As before, 70p - it could hardly be passed up!

Beauty - Louise Mensch - I won this from Goodreads the other week. I am not a big fan of Louise Mensch as a former politician however I love her books as Louise Bagshawe so hopefully I will love this and not let my dislike of her as a person overshadow it.

Map My Heart - Dominic Evans- I also won this, this time from Twitter. I wasn't really sure what I had won when they announced me as a winner and this seems interesting at first glance. Almost like a Wreck This Journal but all about love. I love something different so will be interesting to use this!

I am linking up to Books, Biscuit & Tea's Showcase Sunday linky. What have you been reading lately?


  1. Great haul! I have Ten and Larsson's books as well, and look forward to them all. hopefully I'll read them soon!

  2. I really enjoyed Ten!! I have Resist on my TBR pile. Not sure if I'd read the Larsson books but maybe some day ;) Enjoy them all!!

  3. 70p for the Dragon books?! What a bargain! Definitely couldn't be passed up! And Map my Heart sounds so lovely. :)

  4. It looks like you've got some brilliant books this week. It sounds like you got some real bargains, especially the Millennium Trilogy books for just 70p each!!! I hope you enjoy reading all your new books.

  5. Hard to pass up any book when it's so cheap.
