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 have you been? 🙂 I haven’t done a Showcase Sunday post since my holiday last month (I can’t believe it’s been that long) but I finally have some goodies to show you.
I went into town last weekend and saw that Tesco has a 2 for £7 deal on all their YA/children’s books and they had the new Harry Potter books too. Only the first three, but still. I’ve been meaning to re-read the series for such a long time and this is by far my favourite edition, I just had to take them. Harry Potter has always been a ‘wintery’ series for me, I don’t know why – so they’ll be the perfect companions for the Christmas holidays when it’s freezing cold outside and I’m curled up in bed with mug of hot chocolate. *faraway look*
Erm, anyway. Moving on.
I also found a second hand copy of Pat Barker’s Regeneration in a charity shop in London – I loved one of her other books, Union Street, and heard great things about this one so far. I’ve always been interested in psychology and books dealing with psychological disorders, etc. so when I read the synopsis I knew I had to read this. Regeneration is about the psychological effects of WW1 and the treatments these soldiers had to go through and although historical fiction is something I almost never read, I’m really looking forward to this one. Barker has such a uniquely wonderful style that I’m sure it’s going to be a memorable story.
And last but not least, the lovely Chicken House team have sent me a review copy of the Maze Runner film tie-in edition, which I’m going to review next month. It’s another book I’ve been meaning to read for ages so I can’t wait to get started.
Have you guys read it yet? What did you think? If you did a Showcase Sunday post this weekend, make sure to link up below. Have a nice Sunday and see you soon!
