Showcase Sunday #47 & hiatus announcement!

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!

Once again it's been a few weeks since the last Showcase Sunday, and although I don't have as many phyisical books pending, I have been getting my usual preorders for my Kindle app, and those I just cannot seem to keep track enough to add here anymore!

I've been busy and stressed and generally not doing as well as I would have wanted and on Monday I'm leaving for my vacation to the US, so the blog will be going on a small hiatus. I'm hoping to manage a few scheduled posts for the days I'm gonna be away, but aside from the Waiting On Wednesday posts, I cannot promise anything!

But before I show you what books I've got in these past pair of weeks, I want to introduce you to someone that just arrived this week!

Meet Morrigan (also known as mini-Ember), the newest addition to the team of blog mascots!

She's my second purchase due to loads of luck and fast finger-clicking from the very talended & crafty Julie Kagawa! Not only she's one awesome author but she also makes this amazing clay dragons and sells them on her Etsy store!

Dylan wasn't as surprised this time, since he's got time to get used to Mini-maug, but poor Morrigan wasn't sure about meeting such a big sheep! Maybe the friends not food rule won't be that hard for her given how in disadvantage size-wise she is!

And then Mini-maug and Morrigan met and it was quite okay, but as you can see, Dylan is already shipping them!! They are still wary of each other but I hope they'll be good friends as long as they don't decide to team up against my poor dear Dylan!

And now after goofing off, here come the books!


I got myself a signed copy of First World Problems by LeighAnn Kopans and she sent me an extra copy, so that means I will have a giveaway for that copy when I return from my vacation/hiatus!

I preordered My True Love Gave To Me both in Kindle & physical copy, and I was lucky enough to have got the UK hardback because it's gorgeous and it also arrived before release day for one! Thank you The Book Depository!

And my latest Book Outlet order! A physical copy of The Nightmare Dilemma by Mindee Arnett and the Razoland trilogy by Ann Aguirre: Enclave, Outpost  & Horde!

For Review (via NetGalley & Edelweiss)

 I got approved for two eARCs via NetGalley, so a big thank you to Random House UK and MacMillan, and an even bigger one to the Fierce Reads on Twitter for the heads about The Ghosts of Heaven being a read it now for the 50 first people on NetGalley!

And then I saw a very intriguing book that was open for instant download on Edelweiss and although I really shouldn't have I clicked it, at least release date is for next year! Thank you Tin House Books!!

Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller

And that's all for now guys!! I'll be back with a probably big haul on return from my vacation & hiatus, cause I plan to attend book events and buy books and some preorders will arrive while I'm away! See you soon guys!!


  1. YAY for awesome books :D I love your new dragon. <3 So so cute. I will buy one. One day. When I have more money for it :p Anyway.

    1. Thank you so much Carina sweetie! It's be great to go on vacation with another bookworm, we'll wreak havoc on the bookstores! ;)

    2. The Ghosts of Heaven looks really good! I requested that one, but I don't have much luck with Macmillan. That hardcover of My True Love Gave To Me is gorgeous. I would probably get a copy of that one if I decided to buy it.

      Have fun in the US!!

    3. Thank you Kaitlin!! Best of luck on getting approved for Ghosts of Heaven!

  2. Have fun on your vacay, Pili! Looks like you'll have lots of good books to read, either while you're away, or something to look forward to when you get back. ALSO--I love dragons. There's a blogger who makes dragons and sells them on etsy, Novel Heartbeat (I just looked it up). Just in cases you're interested ;)

    1. I need to check her out to add some more dragons to the family for sure!! ;) Thank you Jessica!!

  7. Haha how cute! Julie Kagawa is insanely talented. I've been meaning to read Enclave but I'm still a little iffy. It's there on my tbr though, one day I shall read it!
