Showcase Sunday #49

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.

 I haven't done a haul in over a month and since then I've managed to collect quite a few books. The past month has been a really busy time; work has been busy and I've moved into my first house, so I haven't blogged much in that time. At all really. I've also been working a lot on another project and a few of the books below hint at what that project might be. I've got a week off work now so I'm hoping to blog a lot more and try my best not to buy too many books online!

    As for Way of Shadows, I was a bit let down, but will probably read on.

    Is that the cloth bound edition of The Hobbit I see? I need to get that box set. Every time I go into my bookstore I always pick them up. But because price and already owning a few other copies I can't justify my want right now.
    Loved Cress! Loved Unwind!
    Really great books!
    Happy reading!
