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.

This post also serves an announcement - to my family and friends, sorry but you probably won't be getting much for Christmas this year, because I have a book buying addiction.  But I'm sure you still love me - right?!

Yes, for the observant of you, I do already own TFIOS and AAoK by John Green, but it was a hardcover box set that looked so pretty!

I'm a bit pressed for time today, so there's no recap of last week.

What did you get this week?

  1. I want Flesh and Bone SO much...adored Rot and Ruin and need to catch up with the series. And if book buying is an addiction I think I have a terminal case as well! :-)

  2. I wanted to get that John Green boxed set. Man,wish I ordered it on time when it was cheap,now it's like $70. But I did order The Fault In Our Stars yesterday and Naughts and Crosses boxed set by Malorie Blackman should be here in a couple of days.

    The Hallowed Ones was scary and well written. Hope we get a sequel because there aren't many vampire slayer books out there

    HERE is what I got.

    1. I almost missed out on that one - there was only three or four left when I saw it! It's certainly pretty!

      I'm really looking forward to The Hallowed Ones, I've read some awesome reviews for it.

  3. Wow, great book haul, Kat! I'm sure you loved ones know what to expect already and going to give you more books for Christmas to feed your obsession, right? :) I admit I haven't read John Green yet, but everyone loves him, so eventually I will.
    Night Circus was gorgeous and has a lovely Christmas feel to it, so I hope you enjoy it. Have a great week!

    1. I loved The Fault in Our Stars, but I put down An Abundance of Katherines unfinished - one day I'll probably try it again.

      I think I should read The Night Circus for a Christmas read!

  4. Hope you enjoy all your books this week! I'm trying not to get distracted when Christmas shopping for other people and accidentally buy things for myself... we'll see how that goes! I keep seeing the Streetcat Named Bob book everywhere at the moment. I still really want to read Catching Jordan, I hope it's a good one. Happy reading!
