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 and welcome back! How’s everyone? How was your week? I’m sorry I’ve been MIA in the past few days (for the thousandth time this year) – the spring semester has just started so life’s just got even more hectic at uni. Anyway, thank you so much for all your messages and tweets about my grandpa last week, you’re all so lovely. He left the hospital about a week ago and is hopefully feeling a bit better now.
In other news, this week’s post pretty much turned into a crime fiction haul – I don’t know why but I’ve been reading even more thrillers and mysteries in the past few weeks than I usually do. Maybe it’s the fact that by the time I manage to curl up in bed and pick up a book I’m so tired I can’t really concentrate on anything else. Crime is always fast-paced and makes you want to keep reading which is definitely what I need right now. It’s a weird logic, I know. 😀 Anyway, here’s what I got this week.
I might have just found my favourite bookshop ever. I think it was Ellie from Curiosity Killed the Bookworm who tweeted something about Awesome Books a few weeks ago and that’s how I ended up flicking through their catalogue. Unlike The Book Depository, they don’t have free worldwide shipping but most of their books are so cheap that they’re still worth it. All three books I ordered are second-hand ones but unlike last week’s batch, these three are in great condition. They were about £3 each so even though I still have millions of unread books (and I got to the point where I don’t even know where to put them), I couldn’t resist such a bargain.
Killing Rachel by Anne Cassidy (for review)
The One You Love by Paul Pilkington (Kindle freebie – click on the cover to download it)
And here comes the best bit: if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you may have already seen it but if not, look, LOOK! A bunch
er… yes, a hundred, to be more exact of business cards for me and the blog! SCREAM!
I had no idea how they would turn out because I’ve never actually designed business cards before, but I really like the result. I feel like a proper grown up now! 😀 *whispers* What do you think?
Also, what did you get this week? Make sure to link up below if you did a Showcase Sunday post and/or leave me a comment if you have some time. 🙂 Take care and have a great Sunday!
