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 was your week? I’m sorry for the lack of updates last weekend – I was in London with Katja from Cautious, who was visiting from Denmark, and didn’t have time to sit down and write my post. BUT! I have lots of brilliant books to show you today so sit down, pop the kettle on and… here goes.
Katja and I went to Foyles last weekend and I bought a copy of Bird Box. I’ve seen a lot of people tweet about it when it came out and I’ve been intrigued ever since. (It sounds like Hitchcock’s The Birds, which is one of my favourite films – and that’s a completely valid reason to buy it, right?) Plus, I’ve heard great things about it, so I couldn’t resist grabbing a copy!
The Shining Girls was a gift but that’s all I’ll say for now – I have a very special post scheduled for next week and I don’t want to spoil the surprise! 😉
The Ice Twins and the third Bridget Jones book, Mad About the Boy, are both review copies. I absolutely LOVED the first two Bridget Jones books and been dying to read the new one ever since it came out, so I can’t wait to finally pick it up! The Ice Twins is another 2015 release I’ve been excited about. I love thrillers and I’m always on the lookout for new crime writers, so I’m really looking forward to reading this one. Many thanks for Harper Collins and Vintage for the books!
And last but not least, Hyperbole and a Half was another Foyles purchase. I’ve seen this one a lot on Ellie’s blog in late 2013 and when I saw it in Foyles, I stopped and read the blurb and the first couple of pages. GUYS. It’s hilarious. Judging by what I’ve read so far, it’s going to be a brilliant read.
