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.
Hey guys! How are you? How was your week? God, I can’t believe it’s Sunday already. Where the heck did this week go? This week was reading week at uni (i.e. no classes until tomorrow) but since my grandpa has been taken into hospital again and my grandma is, again, staying with us, life’s been pretty hectic and nerve-racking in the past couple of days. In terms of books, however, these were the slowest two weeks ever. The good news is, I still have two lovely books to show you!
While I haven’t read Jennifer E. Smith’s previous book, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, I’ve heard great things about it, and this one is supposed to be just as brilliant. I’m looking forward to reading it and many, many thanks to the Headline team and Tiff Lomas for sending me a copy! As for Misery, it sounds sick. Absolutely sick. But I’m always drawn to creepy stories, plus I’ve never read any Stephen King books so I thought I’d give it a try. Has anyone read it? Is it really as sick as it sounds?!
And that’s all I got in the past two weeks, folks!
There probably won’t be a Showcase Sunday post next week since I’m jetting off to London and the London Book Fair on Sunday morning – I will, however, show you some pictures and the books I’ll buy (because I will, obviously) and give you a short recap of the seminars, if you’re interested? Let me know!
As always, make sure to link up your own Showcase Sunday posts below and/or leave me a comment so that I can visit you back and check out what you got. Have a lovely Sunday everyone! 🙂
