Showcase Sunday #16!!



Showcase Sunday is a weekly feature hosted by Vicky of Books, Biscuits, and Tea where all book lovers can share with others what bookish goodness we got this week, be it purchased (physical or eBook), won, gifted or for review!

The last Showcase Sunday I did was back in October before leaving for my trip to India, and since I came back I have been so busy with work, reading, reviewing, trying to have some social life that everytime I got to think about doing a Showcase Sunday about all the books I had got since the last one felt too overwhelming, so I ended up giving up before I started.

So, this week I've decided I'm gonna jump back into the SS bandwagon but I'm only gonna show off the physical books I got since I left for India, some of them signed, that made me the happiest. And also because it was another super happy moment for me this week, my first approval on Edelweiss!! *does happy dance*


Let's start with my Edelweiss approval! I got approved for The Falconer by Elizabeth May!!
This is one book I'm super excited about, and can't wait to get to it in my review reads list!




Now let's start with the physical copies that I got!


This little pile I brought with me from India, except for Solstice, all the other were purchased at one of our fave bookstores in Goa, called Literati! What a brilliant place! Not only it is a house turned into bookstore so you browse books through rooms, but they also have an adorable Lab called Frida!



I was extremely lucky and won a giveaway of all the books in the Mephisto Covenant series so far signed by the author! My copy of The Mephisto Mark is even more unique now since they changed the cover and title!



I needed physical copies of these two, Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater!



The bf fell in love with this Penguin edition of Nineteen Eighty-Four so I got it from The Book Depository. It's a really cool & unique edition (a lil reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange too.)



Solstice by P.J. Hoover, I won this one in a giveaway (YAY!) and it was sent to my SIL's address (the giveaway needed a US address) and then it flew to India with my MIL (who read it during her flight!!) and then it finally arrived with me back to Spain. A very well travelled book this one!




My new matte SIGNED copies of Solving For Ex, One & Two by LeighAnn Kopans! I was so happy when I saw I could get signed paperbacks from her website!! These are so so SO PRETTY!!!



This non-fiction book about India's history & geography called to me in one of the airport's bookstores, and I spent my last rupees on it! Loved it! Full of information and told in a very entertaining narrative voice! So happy I bought it, since I read it on my flight back home!


So these are all the books I wanted to showcase this week! Hopefully from now on, I will return to more regularly scheduled posts with my weekly hauls!

 What all did you guys get this week?

  5. Yaay for The Falconer! I really really liked that one, even though the cliffhanger ending disappointed me a bit. But overall, it's a fabulously exciting read. And I liked Solstice, too, A LOT! It had some mixed reviews, but I thought it was great.
    Enjoy your books!

  12. I'm excited to read The Falconer, too! And I love those Penguin Classics covers. They do such a nice job with their covers, like the Penguin Horror series and the Drop Caps series. And that India book looks very pretty!
