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 the emptiness of last week's mailbox, this week the poor thing almost exploded!  Every year for Christmas I go on a book binge as no one ever buys me books *sniff*, and here's the result!

  2. As if Tomorrow, When The World Began is a book. I had no idea! My Dad got me to watch the remake and he never mentioned it was a book, just an old movie. However I loved the movie, probably cause I felt really nostalgic cause Frankie from The Sleepover Club starred in it but yeah wow. Okay. I basically just added all these books to my wishlist too.

  3. Wow, fantastic books this week. I have the Tomorrow series, but haven't actually read them, did watch the movie a while back though. I also grabbed Dying to Forget, it sounded great and was a bargain. I have The Diviners on my wishlist, really want to grab it, hopefully soon. Will be checking some of these out, thanks. Happy reading.

  5. What a great bunch of books this week Kat! I think that Marsden series looks really good...though god knows the last thing I need to do now is add another series to my TBR! It seems like 9/10 new books are part of a series! lol

    Thanks for stopping by my Added to the Bookshelf post!

  7. What a great haul. Cannibal Reign is a book I keep wanting to buy and read but whenever I get around to buying books I always forget to.

    Here's my Weekly Wrap Up

  10. Oh no, why don't they buy you books? You would be so easy to buy for silly people ;)

  11. Haha, fantastic vlog and great haul, Kat! I can't believe you haven't read Libba Bray before - she is gorgeous! I haven't read The Diviners yet, but it's in my local library and I will be requesting it in the next few months :) Also Texas Gothic is another one of those books that I think I would like but not sure if it's worth buying, so will be waiting for your review :) Enjoy all!

  12. Yay Kat, I'm glad the mailbox is full again. I haven't heard of most of them, will go check them out. I love love love loved Wanderlove, one of my favorite books of 2012. Hope you love it too. Have still to read any book by Libba Bray and Pushing the Limits. Have fun reading all those.

  13. Yay for a vlog!
    Oooh I really like the cover for Texas Gothic, I also really like the name.
    Ugh I always go all crazy and find a series I am excited for and buy them all and then end up not liking the first so good call there.
    I like that cover for The Forsaken! She looks so kick ass!
    I really like that The Diviners cover too!
    After reading Galye Forman's Just One Day I think I may have to give Wanderlove a try, I really liked the travelling in that one.

    Great haul Kat!

  14. I'be been hugging our library to get The Diviners. We have her other books but I want to start with The Diviners.

  15. Dare You To and Wanderlove!!!! *faints* That's all. <3
    Amazing haul, K! Hope you enjoy all of them :)

  16. Wanderlove and The Diviners are amazing. I hope you enjoy them.

    Just One Day--JEALOUS because I can't buy books!

    Texas Gothic and The Forsaken--Own but haven't read yet. I need to do that soon!

    Fantastic haul. I hope you enjoy all of them!

  17. You got the James Marsden books (most of them)! Want, want, want! I need to just give in and buy them at some point, because my library doesn't have them and it's the WORST. EVER. (Which might not be true, but whatever.)

    Aftertime was historical? I do not remember that. Hmmm.

    The scaffolding cover is better.

    The Diviners is probably most up your alley perhaps of the Bray books I've read.

    Not to be a creeper like every time, but I love your vlogs because of the way you talk. So pretty!

    JUST ONE DAY. I hope you love love love!!!

    Ooh, Children of Liberty! I won't be reading my copy for a while, because my tour date is in March, but we can discuss eventually!
