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.

Hi peeps, how are you? Again, I didn’t have much time for bookish stuff lately so apologies for not being around too much. Job hunting is very stressful and time-consuming and I suppose there are times when life has to come first… 🙁 I’m doing slightly better on the reading front though so I should hopefully have a few reviews scheduled for you soon!
In other news, Books, Biscuits, and Tea celebrated its second birthday five days ago! 🙂 I posted about it on social media but in case you’re not on Twitter and Facebook, I want to thank you all for reading, commenting, and all your support and lovely messages in the past two years – it really means an awful lot. Big virtual hugs and free biscuits to you all!
I popped into Waterstones Piccadilly last weekend to support the Books Are My Bag Campaign, pick up a cool BAMB tote bag and get my monthly dose of crime thrillers. I haven’t heard about Fitzek’s work before but The Eye Collector (as wrong and morbid as it may sound) seemed like something I’d enjoy so I decided to pick up a copy.
I got a few unexpected review copies in the past few days but they were sent to my previous address back in Hungary so I won’t be able to get to them for quite a while. 🙁 However, I did get three other books this week:
Wuthering Heights is one of my all time favourite books and for some reason I quite enjoy Virginia Woolf’s writing (I say ‘for some reason’ because literally all of my uni classmates were struggling with her stories, I was the only one who enjoyed them) so I hope To the Lighthouse is going to be a good one. A Tap on the Window has been on my autumn wishlist for a while so I’m dying to start this one as well. (Many thanks to Orion and Roads Publishing for the review copies)
What books did you add to your bookshelf this week?
