Hello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. 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.
I had another fantastic week, huzzah! I finally got my Amazon orders (even though Amazon said I wouldn’t get them until June 20… weird) and I might have done a happy dance when I saw them!
Okay, here’s the reason for my excitement. I’ve been looking for some good crime/mystery authors and series for a while now, hence the Val McDermid and Michael Connelly books. I stumbled upon a random Val McDermid book on Google and as it turns out, the Tony Hill series is supposed to be really good, so I obviously needed to order a copy! The Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly was a recommendation by someone who’s very close to my heart and again, it’s supposed to be GREAT so I’m really looking forward to reading them both!! Jane by April Lindner is something like a modern Jane Eyre which is perfect since I’m reading Jane Eyre this week! This one has been on my wishlist for a while so when Nat from Besotted with Books sent me an Amazon gift card for my birthday and I saw that Jane had quite a reasonable price, I had to order it. It’s a second hand book but it’s in very good condition – and the cover looks fantastic!
Have you read any of these books/series or do you know any other (but similar) crime writers?
Also, what did you guys get? Make sure to leave a link to your own Showcase Sunday post in the linky below!
PS: I’ll be MIA in the next few weeks due to my upcoming exams and health issues BUT I have a fantastic new feature scheduled for next week AND another fun post you’ll definitely enjoy. I’ll visit everyone back as soon as I can, of course. I hope everyone’s having a great week!
