Showcase Sunday #63


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.

Hmm so remember that vlog I did two weeks ago when I said I wouldn't buy any more books this year.  Well, I LIED.  I blame my employer.  Usually I work in an office that has absolutely no shops anywhere nearby, but on Monday I had to work at our other office, which is right in the centre of Amsterdam and therefore surrounded by temptation.  And I gave into the lure of bookstores.


Noughts and Crosses (Noughts & Crosses #1) by Malorie Blackman - I've heard so many good things about this series, and then I saw it and it accidentally fell into my hand and onto the counter and somehow was paid for and then in my handbag.  Terrible.

Under the Dome by Stephen King - I have read this one several years ago, but I have a grand plan to use it as my plane reading on the way to Australia.  Because if 1000+ pages can't keep me occupied, nothing can.

Emerald Green (Ruby Red Trilogy #3) by Kerstin Gier - from my lovely friend Karin at Life of Karin.  Thank you sweetie! 

Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson - because it was on sale and it looks good, even though the reviews are pretty iffy.  And I've realised the other books are set in the same world, but are not a series, which makes me a little more open to it because I'm done with accumulating series.
World After (Penryn & the End of Days #2) by Susan Ee - eeeeeeeep!  It's FINALLY here.  And I managed to pre-order both a physical copy and an e-book.  Oh well!

I've also realised I need some more audiobooks for my massively long flight to and from Australia (for when I've finished Under the Dome of course) - so if you have listened to any awesome audios, let me know!

Have an awesome week!

  2. I still want to read Strands of Bronze and Gold, I like retellings and it uses one that I'm not that familiar with. I don't listen to many audiobooks, but I really should start. I hope you have a good week Kat!

  3. Yes, Stephen King always has great books to keep you occupied for a while! I didn't like Strands of bronze and gold, but her writing-style is good and I love the cover :D I can't wait to read the first book from Peryn & the end of days. happy reading!
