Showcase Sunday {25}

I'm actually quite excited to show you the few books I've managed to acquire over the past number of weeks today... All look pretty fantastic.
 
my dog is currently casting, apologies for the dog hair ;3
 
So I've more or less been watching The Maze Runner movie trailer over and over again since it came out a couple days ago because the movie looks freaking a-m-a-z-i-n-g! And I'm not just saying that because Dylan O'Brien looks beautiful, it simply looks like the type of movie I'd love. So when I spotted the book in WHSmith yesterday, I bought it pretty much on the spot. I'm currently reading it right now and really enjoying it!
 
Then I had a little look around and noticed Vampire Academy. Another YA book-to-movie adaption. Though I don't think the movie looks too much like my cup of tea, I have always wanted to read the book and, since I'll undoubtedly watch the movie at one point or another, I want to have read the book beforehand (yes, I'm one of THOSE people). ;P
 
The other two books, Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts and Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum I received from Amber (The Mile Long Bookshelf) when she was giving away a whole load of her books. I'm super excited to read both of these as both sound like really thrilling reads!
 
Have any of you read any of these books? What did you think? What books did you receive this week? Link me up!
 
Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

  2. I haven't seen the Vampire Academy movie yet, but from what I've seen of the trailers, I think the movie is really bad compared to the books. I really love the books, though, so I hope you will too! :) I want to read The Maze Runner soon as well. I've been wanting to for a long time, but now that the movie's coming out I should probably hurry up! :P

  4. Oh yay Vampire Academy! Hope you enjoy it! I definitely enjoyed the book better, but isn't that always the case? The movie was still pretty good. But I worry it didn't do well since when I went to see it the weekend after it came out, there were like no showtimes. It was insane trying to find a time for me and my friend to go see it!

    Hope you enjoy your reads!

  7. Yea, The Maze Runner trailer is epic! Made me need to pick up the trilogy again. Glad you're enjoying it!
    VA is a surprisingly great series. I haven't watched the movie, just because it looks really bad. But I think you'll enjoy the books. :)
    Great haul!
    Happy reading!

  8. Dylan O'Brien, who even is he?! Haha. I just finished The Maze Runner and it is all sorts of fabulousness, one of my new favourite books ever! I'll be posting a review of that today on the blog. So so excited for the film! Oh and I almost forgot about VA, I love that series. I'm up to book four and the movie was such fun. Can't wait to hear what you think about TMR and VA!
