Showcase Sunday #40


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.

Yeah, so you know when you request some galleys and think you'll only get approved for a few, and then you get approved for lots?  Yep, I had one of those weeks - good thing I'm on vacation in a month so I can read myself sick.
