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.
*cough* Erm. Yes. I acquired quite a few books in the past three weeks, didn’t I?
Mum and I popped into a charity shop when we went to Dover last weekend and spotted this beauty. I LOVED Kevin Brooks’s latest novel, The Bunker Diary (it’s one of those books I keep recommending to all my friends whenever I can. Seriously, it’s really good.) and I’ve been meaning to pick up his other books ever since. Black Rabbit Summer sounds like a perfect summer read!
We also stopped by my favourite charity shop in Camden, where I spotted a gazillion Tess Gerritsen books. I’m serious. They had at least 15! I fell in love with Tess’s writing in The Surgeon, so I decided to pick up books 4, 5 and 6 in the series. I already have the second one, so one more book to go and my collection is complete. *air punch*
I also got a few review books, one of which was In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. The synopsis kind of reminded me of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None (a secluded location, half a dozen strangers invited to said remote location, a killer) so I was instantly intrigued. I started reading it the other day and really enjoyed it so far! Many thanks to Random House for the review copy.
I also got a copy of Stone Rider – one which I don’t know too much about but will definitely give a shot later on – and Annie Barrows’ The Truth According to Us. I’ve heard great things about the latter! Many thanks to Penguin and Transworld for the review copies.
What books did you get this week? Have you read any of these yet? 🙂
