Showcase Sunday #49


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 week felt SO long - on Wednesday I was convinced it was Friday, which was incredibly mean of my brain :( but the summer weather keeps on going, there's four months and 18 days until my trip home and my TBR continues to grow!

Books Purchased
When I really love a series that I've read in ebook format, I like to get shiny hard-copies for my bookshelf, so this week I ordered two:

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi
Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky #2) by Veronica Rossi

And after reading Keeping Her by Cora Carmack, I decided I would actually continue with the Losing It series, and bought 

Faking It (Losing It #2) by Cora Carmack

I also have a love affair with medical memoirs, and I thought this sounded fun

Get Well Soon!: My (Un)Brilliant Career as a Nurse by Kristy Chambers

EBooks for Review
The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom (thanks to Harper)
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (thanks to Hyperion)

My Notorious Life by Kate Manning (thanks to Scribner)
These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) by Amie Kaufman (yep, I told people last week I was being strong and not requesting it, then realised that I had.  Fibber!) (thanks to Hyperion)
When the World Was Flat (And We Were in Love) by Ingrid Jonach (thanks to Strange Chemistry)
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott (thanks to Harlequin) which has no cover as yet.

How was your week?

  2. The covers for UtNS are quite shiny! ;)

    I still need to read Losing It, but I do own both books, so it's just a matter of time!

  3. tried to request The Naturals because I love Barnes's writing, but I guess I'm not reviewing enough YA for them so I got a no. :) Fantastic pile of books, Kat, I hope you enjoy them all!
