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 mail in the summers is an absolute mess, nothing for days and then everything arrives together! This week has been a fantastic mail day for many reasons, and I'm got a ton of books! Not only that, I also got a bit one-click happy and got a LOT of books for my Kindle too... so yep, long post ahead!
Purchased (via The Book Depository)
Once I heard that Strange Chemistry was closing its doors, I went and bought a few paperback from books I've loved published by them. And finally my paperback copy of The Rules for Disappearing arrived (the second copy sent). Two books were recommended by Wendy of The Midnight Garden, and I needed The Grisha series in hardcover now.

Aaaannnnd that's all! Wow, what a week! Now I need to cut my book shopping for at least a pair of weeks!!
What all did you guys get this week?
What a great pile of books you got there. I hope you get a chance to read and enjoy them all. Fangirl and Shadow & Bone are also quite high on my tbr list. Have nice sunday :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Mari! I hope you get to read Fangirl and Shadow & Bone soon, I loved them so much I needed them in hardcover!Delete
I have to get The Girl With All the Gifts. Want sooo badly. And you know my love for Paula Weston's series. What a great haul Pili!ReplyDelete
Both Jenni from Xpresso Reads and Wendy from Midnight Garden gave it 5 stars, so I had to get it!Delete
I hope you'll get Shimmer soon, Kristen!
YAY for lots of awesome books sweetie :D So many good ones. <3 Ohh. I really loved Origin. Stunning story. Hope you do too :) Still waiting on my pre-order of Fangirl... hmph. Soon :D And Shadow and Bone. <3 Sigh. The hardcover is just stunning, isn't it? :) Happy reading. <3ReplyDelete
I hope I'll like Origin it sounds like a great sci-fi book!Delete
And I really hope your Fangirl copy will arrive super soon! I'm still waiting for my B&N order so...
Thank you sweetie!
What?! I had no idea about the Strange Chemistry thing! I really liked some of their books :( but it looks like you have a fantastic haul there! Me, well, I went a little overboard with the freebies this week ;) lolReplyDelete
Yeah, it was a real bummer the Strange Chemistry thing! At least it seems like they'd be still printing them for a while!Delete
I need to put myself on a book ban now, I think!
Awesomeeee, Shadow and Bone and Fangirl! I liked those two a lot :D I know you highly recommend Weston's books, but I am not feeling them at all. Angel books have never sat well with me, and I'm not too interested :o I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Pili!ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!
I'm not a fan of angel books, but these I might end up pushing on you once the series is finished next year... they're pretty awesome!Delete
Fangirl was awesome and this edition is SO PRETTY!! *hugs book*
Thank you, Alyssa!!
And the special UK edition!! IT'S AMAZING!Delete
Ahh, this post of yours is seriously making me squeal. Such GORGEOUS books! *yells like a maniac* First of all, that photo you took of your goodies from TBD is just so beautiful. *tears up* OMG THAT EDITION OF FANGIRL FROM THE UK IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. You need to read it ASAP.ReplyDelete
The Rules for Disappearing is just amazing. The concept is beautiful and unique, and well... I loved it. I hope you do, too! I recently have gotten The Girl With All the Gifts because of the captivating summary and the positive 5 star reviews of it that are all over the place! I'm seriously anticipating to read it so bad. :) I read Shadow and Bone before, and I didn't end up really liking it, but since ToG has gotten me in a fantasy-love feeling, I'm going to head back and re-read it and see my thoughts.
I loved Origin! I hope you do enjoy it. And OMG I just got Landline today as well! The hardcover edition is just too stunning. I admire it every second I can. *stares back at it* And ahh, I got the Atlantia sample as well! I'm going to read it tonight to see my thoughts. :)
Yeah, this was a beautiful haul, Pili! I'm super jelly. xD
I read and LOOOVED Fangirl on my Kindle and when I saw that absolutely gorgeous edition, I knew I NEEDED to have it!!Delete
I need to read both The Rules for Disappearing and The Girl with All The Gifts super soon! And Origin too! I have a few days off coming in the next weeks so I hope I can squeeze them in there!
And I do hope you'll give Shadow & Bone another chance, it's a fantastic book that I loved!
Thank you so much, Melissa!!
Cracked looks really intriguing! STOLEN SONGBIRD YES! I loved it and I totally want my own copy. ;D The Girl with All the Gifts has been getting so much praise. Fangirl! <33 Love that version--*grabby hands* Happy reading, Pili :DReplyDelete
This Fangirl version is too pretty Aimee!! And you need to read Cracked, it's great!Delete
Daaaaayyyyuuuum! Look at that edition of Fangirl! :) It looks so pretty! I saw someones pictures of the inside of it on the tumblrs and it looks so good! I love how they have taken pieces of peoples fan art and incorporated them!ReplyDelete
Landline looks so good! The concept sounds adorable and I hope you enjoy it! Also, Attachments is brillaint! I hope you like that one too! :)
Thanks for sharing, have a great week and enjoy your books! :D
Alex @ The Shelf Diaries
Hiya Alex!! =D Fangirl is fantastic (damn, unintended pun there!) and the artwork in the dust jacket? Amazing!!Delete
Even my nephews that are not readers or love books or know what the story is about, saw it and thought the book was the coolest! ;)
Wow, you cleaned up, dollface! I've had Origin on my TBR forever. I hope you love them, and I can't wait to hear what you think about the Paula Weston series ;)ReplyDelete
Origin was quite cheap on my Kindle app, so I decided to finally get it! And the Paula Weston series? All three books are 5 stars for me! The reviews for them will be up next week! ;)Delete
I was really sad to hear about Strange Chemistry closing their doors as well. Luckily I already had my two favourite books of theirs in paperback. The special edition of Fangirl is soooo beautiful isn't it?ReplyDelete
I've been wanting to read Origin for such a long time, so I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing what you think of it! The Rules for Disappearing and Murder Most Unladylike both sound really good!
Great haul, Pili! Happy reading :D
Oh yes, the UK special edition of Fangirl is TRULY special! SO pretty!Delete
Thank you Samantha!
