Showcase Sunday #43!!

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 is a two weeks combined haul and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the eBooks I ended up getting, so to make it a faster one and spend more time catching up on the many reviews I still need to write and schedule, this haul is gonna be only about physical books, swag and eARCs that I got in the past two weeks!

Purchased (via The Book Depository)

I wasn't expecting my copy of On The Fence to arrive so early, given how slow the mail had been since mid-June but YAY!

On The Fence by Kasie West

Purchased (via Amazon.ES)

I'm not a big fan of buying from Amazon unless it's through my Kindle app since they're been messing around the delivery dates for preorders for quite a while, but this one was in stock and I wanted it ASAP! The messenger delivery was an annoyance though, the guy arrived at nearly 8 pm! I had no idea they delivered that late!

The Rules for Breaking by Ashley Elston

Won in a Giveaway

I have been quite lucky as of late as far as giveaway goes!! First I won an ARC on a giveaway at Ula's blog (Blog of Erised) and then I won a signed copy on Lori M Lee's giveaway!!

Athena's Ashes by Jamie Grey

And then I got myself a bookish tote on Etsy, hand painted by my dear bloggy friend and uber talented Becca from Pivot Point Reviews!! And not only she painted the tote and it was more amazing than I imagined, but she also sent me some awesome signed swag from her stock!! SHE'S THE BEST!!

And that's all (aside from my massive amount of eBooks on my Kindle app!!) for this week!

What all did you guys get this week?


  1. So many pretties! The tote is awesome! :D And I'm very curious about Gates of Thread and Stone...

    1. Thanks Lili! I'm hoping to start GoTaS at some point today!

  2. I've not read any of these books. I have Gates of Thread and Stone on my TBR list but I don't have a copy. I'll be curious what you think. I've seen some mixed things. Enjoy them all! <3

    1. You can win a copy of Gates in my upcoming giveaway, Kristen! ;)

  3. Gates of Thread and Stone looks so gorgeous in print! I'm looking forward to getting the copy I pre-ordered. Compulsion looks like such an amazing book. I really want to read that one. I just have a good feeling about it.

    I love Becca's totes. I may have to order one . . .

    Have a great week, Pili!

    1. Becca's totes are amazing!! You should get one for sure!
      Compulsion sounds amazing, I cannot wait to start reading it!

  4. Man, Pili, looks like you've had a really busy week with all of these goodies :D I wish I could finally win something from a giveaway. I've joined tons but I've yet to win anything! I'm wondering if I'm truly just unlucky or something D: And I'm so jealous you got a signed book of Gates of Thread and Stone. I SO WANT TO READ THAT ONE! I shall eagerly wait for your review :3

    1. 2 weeks haul and I didn't even include the eBooks!! O_O
      I'll be reading GoTaS super soon now!!

  5. Did my comment not go through? I suppose not. We lost electricity here yesterday night, RIGHT WHEN I WAS DOING MY COMMENT REPLYING AND WRITING A REVIEW O.O Luckily, it was a review for next week, and not what would have been today's review. And Blogger was nice and saved it, so everything worked out.

    But I lost all those comments D: Oh well!

    YAY for On the Fence! I have one more West novel, then I've read all four. I didn't enjoy Gates of Thread and Stone as much as I'd hoped... I hope you love it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. UGH!! Awful timing for the electrical failure!! I'm glad that at least Blogger DID save the review!!

  6. I love that tote bag! And all that swag looks amazing. I look forward to seeing what you think of Compulsion, Pili. And On The Fence! It was such a great summer read for me. Seeing it in your haul makes me want to pick it up again. :)

    1. I so want to read it soon myself, Kasie West is quite awesome! =D
      And yeah, that tote bag is sooo amazing, I adore it to bits! Thanks Sam!

  7. On the Fence is so adorable!! 8pm delivery? Wow, that is late!
    The finished version of Gates of Thread and Stone is soooo beautiful! Also, that tote bag is AMAZING!
    Great haul, Pili! Happy reading :D

    1. I know, I was already pissed at the failing to deliver when the doorbell rang!
      And yeah, the tote bag is amazing!! =D

  8. YAY for signed book and signed swag :D It all looks so so gorgeous. <3 So much awesome. I hope you enjoy it all sweetie :) Happy reading. <3 I haven't read any of these yet, just waiting for Gates to arrive ;p
