Showcase Sunday #66

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 I received the most awesome Christmas present from my wonderful friend, Karin.

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds #1) by Alexandra Bracken 
She-Wolves by Helen Castor
You Are So Undead to Me (Megan Berry #1) by Stacey Jay
And POPCORN!  because I am obsessed with it - there's nothing I love more than curling up with a good book and a big bowl of salted popcorn.

Thank you Karin xxxx  I hope your present arrives soon!!

And then I had this ridiculous panic moment that I thought I didn't have enough books to choose from on my ereader for my holiday.  Which is completely ridiculous but I felt better afterwards ;-)

Have a fabulous week!!


  1. I am so glad you like them all and I hope you'll enjoy them soon :)
    I know this panic moment - happened to me too before I went to Australia in 2011. And having a lot to choose from is better than not being sure if you have enough. Oh we book lovers always have our little excuses, right?

  2. Ooh, I'm a popcorn fiend too! I literally can't watch TV without having a bowl of popcorn with me. :)

    And that's so sweet of Karin! Hope you enjoy the books!

    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. Golden pop looks delicious :D I can't wait to read The darkest minds and haha, happy reading with all your e-books!

  4. Fantastic haul, and I hope you enjoy your popcorn :)

  5. Wow, what an impressive haul :D I hope you enjoy making your way through them all. And the popcorn too!

  6. Fantastic post!! I have the bookish survey set up and saved, I just need to get around to actually answering the questions and posting it. Lol!!

  7. Nice book haul!!! And yum! Popcorn! One of my favorite snacks while I'm reading!

  8. I think we all get those moments, lol! I hope you enjoy your new books and your popcorn!

  9. I didn't get anything this week. Yay me!

    I loved You Are So Undead to Me.

    I am definitely going to pick up Me Before You in 2014, I bought it earlier this year but kept putting off reading it, but I think it's a book that I'll really enjoy, and I'm looking forward to reading it. Cinder is one of my 2014 priorities too, I just never got round to it this year unfortunately. I'm hoping I'll get round to the Ashfall series next year too, especially as it's ending next year too.

  11. Great haul! Yay for popcorn ^^ I love salty snacks :)

    I must start on my copy of The Darkest Minds, looks good. As does The Detainee, awesome! Must get it as well.

    Happy reading!

    My haul.

  12. hahaha, Kat! I love salted popcorn too! We have fights with my husband because he likes it sweet. *cringes* Have a great time reading all your books! :)

  13. Yay for awesome friends. I love when friends send me stuff and it's stuff I wasn't expecting. Come check out my haul as well.


  14. I really need to read Two Boys Kissing. It has been on my list to read for a while. I am also very interested in Me Before You!

    I always love coming to your page. I'm always bound to find at least one book that is new to me. Enjoy all your books and the popcorn as well! My Weekly Wrap Up

  16. Wow, lots of books I need to check out. Glad you enjoyed Shadow and Bone! I really need to get to Me Before You and Angelfall. :)

  17. Great haul! And I love popcorn while reading. Enjoy!

  18. I have been wanting The Darkest Minds but am waiting until I find it on sale somewhere. Fever 1793 sounds pretty good!

    Here's my Haul!

  19. Great gifts and what a "panic attack" haul! Enjoy!

    I really loved Me Before You! It was one of only three books that I gave 5 stars this year -- and it made me cry too.

  21. You must read Two Boys Kissing - it's just *speechless*

  22. Yes! I don't have to feel like I'm the only one not to have read Cinder then ;)

  23. It took me ages to get it finished - but so much fun!

  24. Doesn't it?! I've been eyeing it off for ages!

  25. I didn't know if it would be my kind of book, but I trust Karin's judgement!

  26. Thanks Kristin! And sorry for the growing TBR ;)

  27. Sweet popcorn should be illegal. But at least then you don't have to share ;)

  28. Exactly, the more the better! And variety, must have variety!

  29. My boyfriend tells me it's an addiction. I'm forever buying it!

  30. I hope it's enough....no, must not buy more lol

  31. Thanks! I might need the popcorn to give me energy ;)

  32. Reviews from a BookwormJanuary 6, 2014 at 12:10 AM

    I just got Shadow & Bone, Angelfall and World After for Christmas, I can't wait to read all of these, so I'm glad to see that you enjoyed them all. I am also planning to read all three of the Under the Never Sky series this year soon, I hope I enjoy them as much as you did.

    Great answers :) My End of Year Survey.

  33. Love these - there are definitely a few recommendations that I'm going to be picking up!

  34. YES!! I'm so glad that Into the Darkest Corner made your most thrilling read! It totally was excellent and you know how much I loved it myself - I'm still pushing it on people :D

    I'm like you - not a huge contemp fan but I find myself reading more and more of it, and I've had Boys Kissing Boys on my wish list for quite some time, I think next time I'm in the mood for a contemp I'll check and see if it's available for download from my e-library!

    Hope this year is as a good of year for reading as 2013 was! :D
