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 everyone and welcome to our very first Showcase Sunday in 2014! *throws confetti* Did you have a nice New Year’s Eve? Any resolutions this year? I mentioned some of mine in my previous post but another thing I’m determined to do is read more YA. 75% of the books I read last year were adult books and it would be nice to make it 50-50. We’ll see how that’s going to work out. 🙂
I got two books this week – technically they must have arrived around Christmas time but I was at my parents’ house until Friday morning. It was a nice surprise to come home to, though!
I won this one at Hodder & Stoughton‘s Twitter giveaway a few weeks ago. Isn’t it stunning? Whoever did the cover design did an amazing job, it’s probably one of the most beautiful books I’ve seen in a while.
The second one was featured in one of my Catalogue Highlights posts and has been on my wish list ever since. Sarah from Girl!Reporter had a spare proof and she was lovely enough to send it to me. Thank you so much! (That’s my first UKYA title sorted right there 😀 )
