Showcase Sunday #12


Showcase Sunday is hosted by the fabulous Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea and is all about sharing our new books - beg, borrowed or bought.
After a semi-hiatus due to moving and my internet connection taking ELEVEN days to be transferred to my new house, I didn't do a Showcase Sunday last week, so this is two weeks worth of books!


Rot & Ruin (Benny Imura #1) by Jonathan Maberry
Dust & Decay (Benny Imura #2) by Jonathan Maberry
Ghost Road Blues (Pine Deep #1) by Jonathan Maberry
Last Days by Adam Nevill
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggarch
Love Lies Bleeding by Meghan Ciana Doidge
What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman
Blood Fugue by Joseph D'Lacey (huge thank you to Salt Publishing)

Because I didn't have Internet, I haven't visited and commented on nearly as many blogs as normal, plus I've got more than a few comments here to reply to - my apologies!

Books read in the past two weeks:
The Passage (The Passage #1) by Justin Cronin
The Twelve (The Passage #2) by Justin Cronin
Zom-B (Zom-B #1) by Darren Shan

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggarch

Currently Reading:
Day by Day Armageddon (Day by Day Armageddon #1) by J.L. Bourne

Tommy Nightmare (The Paranormals #2) by J.L. Bryan

Last Week
I listed my Top Ten YA Contemporary books that changed my mind about the genre, I waited on Black City by Elizabeth Richards, talked about when I listen to audiobooks for Audiobook Friday, revealed the cover of Pieces by Michelle Davidson Argyle and I reviewed Mockingbird by Walter Tevis and Carrie by Stephen King.

Next Week
I'll be posting reviews of Carnivorous Nights by Margaret Mittelbach, When the Storm Passes by Julie Jett and Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts, Top Ten Tuesday'ing and Waiting on Wednesday, and there's a very special giveaway starting!

  1. I get frustrated when my internet goes down for a couple of hours so I can't imagine going 11 days without it!! But big cheer for Benny Imura - I love those books! :-)

    1. It's amazing how much we use the internet - I was ok for a couple of days and then it drove me crazy!

      I'm really looking forward to reading this series, I'm a huge fan of Jonathan Maberry!

  3. I have had plenty of interment problems, its so annoying. I know what you mean. I didn't one last week either, so it a double whammy for me as well. :-). Loves Lie Bleeding, looks beautiful. I left the sound of this one, I've added it to my TBR list! I hope you enjoy all your books! :-)

    Here's My Showcase Sunday

  4. Poor you, the lack of internet is one of the worst things about moving house (apart from all the cleaning of course). Hope you're starting to get settled now.

  5. I started reading Rot & Ruin and I am supposed to start reading The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel pretty soon.

    I think I might have a hint about that very special giveaway. :) *big grin*

    1. I think I already have Rot & Ruin on audio, but I wanted the paper copy too - and it's got one of those fab covers that feels really nice, too!

    1. As a Maberry fan I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read them yet!

      Reviews of The Passage and The Twelve are coming up in the next few weeks :-D

  9. I really like those Mayberry covers, I had never seen those ones before. Last Days is one I always saw on the login page on Netgalley a while back and debated requesting but never did, I wish I did! Hope you enjoy all the new goodies!

    1. They're the UK covers - I debated between the US and UK covers but decided I liked the look of the UK ones better.

      I've heard great things about Adam Nevill but haven't read one of his books yet, so I'm keen to get started on that one.

  10. I really want to start the Rot & Ruin books, I hope you enjoy them and all the others :)

    Here is my weekly haul

  11. That's a lot of Jonathan Maberry books! I hadn't seen those editions before either, and I like them!

    Oh man, you didn't get as many books read, but you got through both Cronin books so major props!

    1. They look like real zombie covers, and they have that awesome embossed feel too.

      The Cronin books add up to over 1200 pages - I could have read 4 or 5 others for that many pages. And they are teeny tiny font too!
