Showcase Sunday

I'm back again and linking up with Books, Biscuit and Tea for Showcase Sunday! Yet again I have a pile of books but to be fair, they were either free or really cheap! So without further ado, here goes:

Break In - Dick Francis. I was given this by my Nan who had picked it up from her local charity shop for some reason but was never going to read it. She passed it on to me as she thought it would be more my style. I'm excited to have a read. (Goodreads/Amazon)

Under Orders - Dick Francis. Another gift from my Nan. My Dad has read a lot of Dick Francis and has said he is good so once I've finished these, I may have to raid his collection. (Goodreads/Amazon)

The Next Best Thing - Kristan Higgins. This has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while and when I saw it on the 3 for £5 deal in The Works, I had to pick it up. Excited to get to it - I need a little bit of romance for the first time in ages! (Goodreads/Amazon)

Requiem - Lauren Oliver. Well I have the other two books so I needed to get the third! I still haven't read the series though, oops! I will be getting to it very soon though! This was on the 3 for £5 deal at The Works. (Goodreads/Amazon)

Daylighters- Rachel Caine. Another book from the 3 for £5 deal. I had heard good things about this book so thought I may as well pick it up! I know it is mid way through a series but if I like it, I will start from the beginning. Hey, it worked with me and Harry Potter! (Goodreads/Amazon)

Envy - Elizabeth Miles. Another that isn't the first in the series, however I have ordered Fury from Amazon and it should be here soon. I saw this for £1 in Poundland..I couldn't pass it up! (Goodreads/Amazon)

Crescendo - Becca Fitzpatrick. Another sequel BUT this was also £1 and it means that I finally picked up Hush Hush with my Amazon vouchers too!(Goodreads/Amazon)

Wake - Anna Hope. I've also been winning books recently too and actually won this from Vicky, our host for this linky! I loved the premise of the book so entered Vicky's giveaway and thought nothing of it...and lo and behold, I won! I really can't wait to get reading it, it looks really interesting!(Goodreads/Amazon)

I also made the effort to keep track of the Kindle freebies I downloaded this week and amazingly I only downloaded four! Here they are:

Eternally Yours. This is just a free sampler of some romance novels - I thought it was worth a download! (Amazon)

Backwards Compatible - Sarah Daltry. I actually saw someone include this in their Showcase Sunday last week and when I saw it for free on Amazon, I had to download it! It has gone back up to 77p now unfortunately! (Goodreads/Amazon)

Soul Taken (The Life After Trilogy #1) - Katlyn Duncan. Can we just take a minute to appreciate that cover? Simply beautiful! I will admit that the cover drew me in but I loved the premise too and since it was free, who can complain? It's still free now too! (Goodreads/Amazon)

Taxi Delivery - Brooke Williams. When I first saw this, I was dubious but after reading the synopsis, I wanted to give it a go! I'm not religious and apparently this has a lot of religious references in it but I don't mind as it seems like a sweet story. It has gone back up in price now though. (Goodreads/Amazon)

So these are the books I picked up this week...what did you get?


  1. You picked up some great deals at The Works! I simultaneously love and loath that shop; they have amazing offers but then I always end up buying way more than I need... I don't know The Next Best Thing yet, but it looks interesting so I shall look into it. Hope you enjoy all your new reads :)

    My Showcase Sunday:

  2. Awesome haul! I loved Lauren Olivers books, I hope you do as well. The last one was good and I was one of the few that liked the ending. :)
    Envy looks good as well.
    Happy reading!

    My haul

  3. Fantastic haul! It's great winning books, isn't it? Happy reading!
