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.

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I’ve had a pretty… well, let’s just say exhausting week. I think I’m coming down with the flu or something because I wasn’t feeling too well in the past few days. I also have a few presentations coming up at uni and my BA thesis is due in about 10 days so I’ve been writing and trying to come up with something interesting non-stop. Anyway, I did get some goodies to cheer me up, so let’s see this week’s incoming books!
Finally! I’ve been meaning to read the Hannibal Lecter series for years. The Silence of the Lambs has been one of my favourite films ever since I can remember and I have a feeling the books are even better than the film was. And since The Book Depository had a 10% offer in the past one or two weeks, I decided it was time for me to find out so I ended up ordering a copy of Red Dragon. Heck yes!
And I also got my copy of Emlyn’s new(-ish) book, Vicky Finds a Valentine. As you can see it’s definitely not what I usually read since it’s a children’s book BUT here comes the best bit: the little bird you can see on the cover was named after me! I’ve never given my name to any bookish character before so hurray! (and can I just say, Vicky – the little bird, I mean, not me – is super adorable) Anyway, Em was lovely enough to send me a signed copy along with some swag. Thanks, Em!
