Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.
Hello everyone and welcome back! Hope you all had a nice (and stress-free) week! I didn’t have time to do a SS post last week so the books below are from the past two weeks.
The 5th Horseman by James Patterson (swapped)
Under Your Skin by Sabine Durrant (for review)
The Love Book by Fiona O’Brien (for review)
Burning Blue by Paul Griffin (gift)
Within These Walls by Rev. Carroll Pickett (swapped)
First of all, an enormous thank you and lots of big hugs go to the lovely Henrietta from Leisure Reads who emailed me just before the new year, saying that she’s reading Paul Griffin’s Burning Blue (a book which has been on my wishlist for absolutely AGES) and she’s really enjoying it. Then I woke up the next morning and saw that she sent me an Amazon gift card so that I can order a copy. *sniffs* I’ve been blogging for almost 1,5 years but the kindness of bookish people still amazes me. Thank you so much, H! ♥
Also, a massive thank you goes to Hodder & Stoughton for the two review copies!
It has absolutely nothing to do with books but… I got ombre hair!!!!
Ombre basically means that your hair is darker at the roots and then gradually gets lighter near the ends. I’ve been thinking about giving it a try for a while but I always chickened out at the last minute. I’m really glad I got it done, though – I love it already! *end of shameless self-plug*
What did you guys get in the past two weeks? What did I miss? 🙂
