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!
This week was pretty good on the book front even though some of my preorders from The Book Depository are still missing and haven't arrived in the mail, but between Easter days and now Labor Day and all that, there were only 3 days this week that the post was working so I'm not surprised. Really hoping for many awesome books arriving next week! To compensate for that my Kindle preorders arrived timely and I was approved for 3 books on NetGalley! So thanks a lot to Entangled Pub, Penguin and Tor Books!
Purchased (via Kindle app)
Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins
Tease by Amanda Maciel (UK ed)
The Taking by Kimberly Derting
For Review (via NetGalley)
The Warrior by Victoria Scott
A Time To Dance by Padma Venkatraman
Unwept by Tracy & Laura Hickman
I decided to request A Time To Dance to put my money where my mouth is to support Diversity in YA & books in general, and although next week I have so many preorders coming and physical books arriving, I'm hoping to buy a pair more books the week after next to add even more diversity to my shelves!
What all did you get this week?
I know you have been waiting for Sweet Reckoning for a while! I am glad you have finally got your mits on it!ReplyDelete
I have read a few reviews on Tease, both positive and negative.
Thanks for sharing & enjoy your books! :D

I'm very curious to see what your thoughts on The Warrior will be...looking forward to your review. I hope you get your missing books soon. I've not seen any reviews for Tease yet. Enjoy the books!ReplyDelete

OOOOH! Sweet Reckoning! WHAT DID YOU THINK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Also, I'm currently reading The Taking right now, but I'm only about 50 pages in. I'm kinda upset bc I left my book outside and my mom didn't see it while she was watering the yard and totally got it wet so I have to wait for it to dry -_- Anyways, GREAT haul girly, and I hope you get your missing books soon! <3ReplyDelete
Dude, poor book!Delete
We really need to chat about Sweet Reckoning, maybe even via FB chat or something, so we can discuss spoilers!!!
You got some great purchases this week Pili, I really want to read Tease because of all the things I've heard about it! Hope you enjoy your reads this week.ReplyDelete
Jeann @ Happy Indulgence

Yup. I was approved and devoured The Warrior too. Love me some Dante. :)ReplyDelete
I'm so excited to get my hands on The Taking. It sounds like something I will love.

Thanks Brittany! I'm also quite excited to read The Taking, hopefully soon!Delete
