Showcase Sunday #24


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.


I had some awesome news this week - my brother is getting married in January!  This is also the perfect excuse for me to go home to Australia for Christmas, New Years and the wedding.  It's been more than two years since I last went home so I'm super hugely excited.  Plus my boyfriend will have his first ever summer Christmas!

And now onto the books!
The Illusion of Separateness by Simon Van Booy (thanks to Harper)
After the Fear by Rosanne Rivers
Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths #1) by K.A. Tucker
Annabel by Kathleen Winter
Trust Me by Lesley Pearse
Never Look Back by Lesley Pearse
Crewel (Crewel World #1) by Gennifer Albin

What fabulous things landed in your mailbox this week?

  11. Oh Kat, that's good news. Congrats to your brother and I hope you'll have a lovely time Down Under (I'm sure I'll tell you this a couple more times). If your boyfriend cannot understand how you can celebrate Christmas in summer, tell him I understand that. :)

    1. Oh cool, it has some great reviews so I'm looking forward to reading it!

  14. I actually didn't receive any books this week. Which in a way is good, because it means I can attempt catching up on my reading pile.

    As for your books, I read one by K.A. Tucker in the past year that I really enjoyed, and since then have been wanting to read more by her. And while I haven't seen it before, Crewel's cover really calls to me.

    And finally, congrats to your brother on his engagement!

  17. I liked Crewel but the reviews are mixed. Interested to hear your thoughts, Kat. I feel like I may have got it wrong with that book. I'm still conflicted to this day.
