Showcase Sunday #7


Showcase Sunday is hosted by the fabulous Vicky of Books, Biscuits and Tea and it's all about sharing the books we've received in the last week - bought, begged or borrowed! 

I didn't think I had many books this week, but then I started looking through my e-readers....ooopsie!


For review


The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord (Random House via Edelweiss)
Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz (Simon Pulse via Edelweiss)
Taking on the Dead by Annie Walls (BB blog tour)

Purchased
Gossamer by Lois Lowry
The Plagiarist by Hugh Howey
Left Behind (No Shelter #2) by T.S. Welti
First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
And because they were available as a bundle and I couldn't resist:
Uglies, Pretties, Specials and Extras by Scott Westerfeld

Last Week on The Aussie Zombie
My reading list including the breaking of my reading slump - huzzah!  
On Top Ten Tuesday I realised just how many series I own but have never finished - shameful! 
I revealed the cover of the third book in the Protector series by M.R. Merrick, Release.
I gave five stars to The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, three stars to the audiobook of Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles and a disappointed two stars to Sarah McCrossan's Breathe *sad face*.

Coming Up Next Week
My reading list pushes me closer to my Goodreads goal for 2012, reviews of Where She Went by Gayle Forman, Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman, and A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks, my Top Ten Tuesday of 'older books' and my first Waiting on Wednesday post!

What new books are prettying up your shelves this week?

  6. Hope you enjoy the Uglies series! I liked the first book best but the other ones are enjoyable. Different but enjoyable.

    Hope you have a great week!

  17. Ooooh, Teeth!

    I don't love the Uglies books, but they are very interesting. Westerfeld's style can be a bit bracing, but the idea is unique.
