Showcase Sunday #52

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 of these post in over a month so it's safe to say I'm accumulated quite a few books since then. I've gone on a graphic novel buying spree lately so that's the reason for all the Wonder Woman (one of my faves) books and graphic novels. Also I've been on a contemporary kick and been buying a lot of YA contemporary books. I've read both Burn for Burn and To All the Boys I've Loved Before and really enjoyed both.

  1. Awesome haul! i cannot wait to get my hands on Tiger Lily and The Humans, looking forward to both. I also have to read Martin's other works, and get Riggs' books, too. Everyone praises them so much.
    Ness' book is really good so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
    The Queen of the Tearling looks amazing, sadly I was denied. Looking forward to your review!

    Happy holidays!

    Lola and Amy & Roger's are fantastic spring/summer reads. Just perfect.

  9. The thinpak cases inside are designed similarly when it comes to the front covers. Each cover has the http://www.lakesideshopping.com/store1.html framed border that gives it that elegant feel while inside each volume has a different piece of artwork that has different groups and pairings, unlike the first set which had Yumi in all of them. The continuity of it all is quite good and it has much the same pleasant and appealing http://www.oceancityseafood.com/old.asp feeling that the box itself provided. The back cover for each of the volumes has a basic structure across all of them with a few chanel replica shots from the show down the left while the right has the overall summary of the premise and a listing of the episode numbers and titles along with what features can be found on that disc. The covers are fairly light in general http://www.otxarkoaga.org/spothandbags.aspx when it comes to how much is on the back but it has a simplicity hermes replica that is very appealing and fits within the show.
