Showcase Sunday #14

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits & Tea where we showcase all of our recent book grabs.

Since I haven't done one of these in a while, I do have quite a bundle of books to show you. Some I got way back for Christmas (I know, I know... why haven't I got on to doing this sooner?!) and others I'd bought with my Christmas money. ;) Only one review book included here, I'm afraid - I think I've got a couple more on the way though! So, without further-a-do, here is the long-awaited book haul! :)



Me, Suzy P. by Karen Saunders - This book was money well-spent. I LOVED it! Can you believe it?! It was a chick-lit and I loved it! That, like, never happens! I usually hate chick-lit books! :3 You can click HERE to read my gushing review! ^.^

Origin by Jessica Khoury - This was one of the books I'd put on my Christmas wishlist and, thanks to my super amazing parents, I got it! I also loved this one - the story was so original!

Enclave by Ann Aguirre - Yet again, another wishlist book. This was probably the one book I was most excited to get for Christmas as it has been on my wishlist since forever! Did I enjoy it, you ask? Yes, yes, yes! :D

Echo by Alyson Noel - I got this one so far back, I can't even remember if it was a gift! :3 This is the second book in the Fated series and since I thoroughly enjoyed book one, I'm hoping I'll like this one too! :)

The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna - This is the one review book of this haul. Random House very graciously offered me a review copy of this book a while back and I absolutely adored it! It was one of the best debuts I've ever read! My review can be found HERE. :P

Ashes & Shadows by Isla J. Bick - These books were also on my Christmas wishlist - I've yet to start reading them though! I did start reading Ashes at one point but it had a bit of a slow start so I put it off to read another book. However, I'm most definitely going back to them soon! xD

Earth Girl by Janet Edwards - This was another Christmas pressie that I was super excited to receive. This had been on my wishlist for a while and I think it was the first one out of all the books I'd got that I read. I gave it three stars (I think, anyway) on goodreads just because it was a little confusing and slow. :)

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - OMGGGG - I have a John Green book! I finally (finally!) gave into my friend, Cat from Through a Cat's Eyes and bought it with my Christmas money. She had been begging me for months to read it and I finally gave into her pleas. All those sparkling reviews from book bloggers also helped! I'm going to go straight on to this after I finish the book I'm currently reading. ;D

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass - Woooooop! Another wishlist book I finally managed to get my hands on! As I'm sure quite a lot of you bloggers know, I've been wanting this book for AGES! So I am super, super excited to have it now! xD

What books did you get this week? Leave links below and I'll stop on by!

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

  9. That is one awesome haul, Rachel. I have just finished Throne of Glass and it was brilliant! You won't be disappointed I promise. And the Fault in our Stars I still need to read, but as you can see from Lucy and Zoe's comments it meant to be epic and I can't wait to read it. The Lost Girl is another one of my favourite first reads of 2013. I really hope you enjoy them all!

    Happy Reading!

  11. I haven't done a book haul in FAR too long, and I really do need to do one, especially because so many of my January pre-orders have come in. It's just that every time I think of doing one, I get lazy... not very good. ;) Hopefully I'll do one next week?

    But anyways, you got so many lovely books! I am seriously pining so hard for The Lost Girl, especially because I've read so many gushing reviews (yours being one of them!). Also, Throne of Glass is pretty good, even though I didn't love it. =)

    Fabulous haul, Rachel, and enjoy all of your lovelies! <3
