Showcase Sunday #55: Birthday Edition!

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.

A month ago I turned 23. Time just flies by - it's crazy! Anyway I received a little bit of money along with an Amazon voucher for my birthday so of course I did a little bit of book shopping! It's so hard choosing what books to buy when you're given a voucher because I just have sooo many on my wishlist but I managed to choose a few. There was also a few that I knew I just had to get so it was easy picking out those!
