Showcase Sunday #19

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.

Birthday Goodies <3
 Leviathan - Scott Westerfield
Stookie Stackhouse Novels/True Blood Collection - Charlaine Harris
Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas
It was my birthday this week and I was spoiled and was a very lucky girl and had a lot of book related gifts! I was treated to a paperback copy of Throne of Glass a book that I was lucky enough to read earlier this year and absolutely loved. My favourite book of the year so I was so happy to get a copy off my sister :) My flatmate also treated me to Leviathan a book that looks so interesting and also the True Blood Book Boxset (I squealed with joy when I unwrapped it!). And what I was most grateful of was the amazon gift cards that I received off my friend and boyfriend. Sooooo amazing right? There's alot of books waiting to be bought ;)
 Bought (kindle):
 The False Prince - Jennifer A. Nielsen

Kindle Freebie:
 Branded - Keary Taylor

  1. Love that cake! Happy Birthday. Lots of pretties.. Happy Reading.


  2. Happy belated birthday! I hope you enjoy your books, you have some pretty good ones! I'm really hoping to start Rachel Vincent's series soon. It sounds really good and I think I'd like it.
