Showcase Sunday #54

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'm back! For over two months I've really slacked with the whole blogging and reviewing thing with going on holiday, starting back to work and stuff. Trying to find the time and getting in the mindset has been a little tough lately and I haven't really been doing great on the reading front either. Anyway here are the books I've collected over the past few months. I'm really trying to cut down on book buying (which is really hard!) and maybe a few of the books here hints at what I'm planning for next year!

  3. Oh wow! Great haul!! Love that cover for Opposition, it's a bit different than the one I have! I like its darker vibe it's got going! And ooh Not a Drop to Drink! I bought that recently too! I have Doon waiting on my Kindle as well and just won the sequel myself! And OMG! Totally gushing over the cover for Where She Went! It's the exact same couple and "look" from the original Old Magic cover! I went gaga over that book when I was a teen!

    Awesome haul!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. Wow! You have an amazing haul! :) I didn't see that new The Giver cover yet, but it's looking pretty bright instead of the really grim face of the giver. And OMG Isla and the Happily Ever After!! Such great books~

  5. What a great haul! I really want to read Half A King too, I keep hoping the library will get a copy in stock, and I've requested The Giver as well, so looking forward to hearing your thoughts on those.

    The Book of Life is a really good read, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Enjoy your week!
