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! Right. Well, I was planning on doing an e-book haul this weekend since I went a bit crazy on Netgalley (see? That’s how long my first bookish New Year’s resolution lasted. A month. Marvellous.) but I’m still waiting to hear back from them so maybe next week. BUT – and I’m holding my index finger up here – me and my mum went on a super quick book shopping spree the other day and I scored another Agatha Christie novel (the 29th book in my Christie collection, if I’m not mistaken). Booyah!
And I also got two e-books: (click on the book covers to check out their synopses)
As I mentioned in my previous post this week, I already read the first few pages of Now You See Me and it’s been brilliant so far. If you like crime fiction and thrillers in particular, this one might be worth checking out. I came across Mari Jungstedt’s books in one of our local bookshops but they didn’t have the first book in the series (obviously…) so I decided to get the e-book instead. I haven’t read any Scandinavian crime before so I’ve no idea what to expect – but hey, it’s worth a try.
