Showcase Sunday #16

It's Sunday and that means one thing; Showcase Sunday a fun weekly meme hosted by Vicky over @Books, Biscuits and Tea. It's a great way of showing off what we've bought, borrowed and received this week.
(Click on the book covers to go to goodreads) 
 Dinner with a Vampire (The Dark Heroine #1) - Abigail Gibbs
I've seen this book around quite a bit lately and as soon as I saw a big half price sign above a stack of these books I knew I had to snap up a copy. It looks really interesting and it will hopefully get me enjoying vampires in books a lot more too. Also check out the cover (gorgeous) and the pages are black on the outside too which just looks so dramatic.

 For Review:
Mystic City - Theo Lawrence
A very big thank you to Random House Publishing for the chance to read and review this wonderful looking book. The cover is just so beautiful. I've also read the short prologue and a few of the first pages of Chapter 1 and it looks like a really good take on the Romeo and Juliet tale. I'll be reading it as soon as I'm finished with The Immortal Rules.

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn & David Leviathan
Shakespeare on Toast - Ben Crystal
Nexus - Ramez Naam
Just a few more books from Netgalley hehe. Dash & Lily's book looks so cute and although it isn't my type of read I just had to request it because of its amazingly cryptic blurb! Shakespeare I requested because I am doing a whole module on him in uni next semester so any extra help understanding him is welcome. Nexus looked extremely intriguing so just had to request it too :)
