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.

I felt really guilty about how many books I had for my Showcase Sunday post - and then I realised it's been a month since the last one, so it's not so bad....but these should keep me going for a long time.

Well that's going to keep me busy for a while!  What did you pick up this week?


  1. Wow, Kat! Lovely haul! I have to pick up Jojo Moyes sometime :) and welcome back, darling! :)))

  2. These look epic! And there's such a lot of them! I'd really love to read Dear Killer...the stuff I've heard about it so far has been all awesome. :)

  3. Woah awesome haul!!! So many great books. I'm interested to see what you think of Wild. Enjoy. http://bookloverslife.blogspot.ie/2014/01/showcase-sunday-21.html

  4. That is a fantastic haul! So many great titles there and some I need to add to my wish list! Have a great Sunday

  5. Wow! What a fantastic haul! You have plenty of books to keep you in a better mood after the holidays blues!
    I'm quite jealous of Rebel and The Vanishing Season!

    Wow! That's a very nice haul. A few of those I haven't heard of so off to Goodreads I go. Enjoy all your books!

    Weekly Wrap Up

  7. I was leaving ages between my posts and it got to the point it was taking soooo long and making me feel a bit guilty about all the books. I guess it's a bit of a wake up call to by incoming books problem...so I'm back to weekly posts again!

  8. They should definitely keep you going for a while! I need to check out the Article 5 series! It looks really good! Have a great week!

  9. I hadn't heard of The Devil Walks in Mattingly before but that sounds pretty intriguing. The Bees blurb compares it to The Handmaid's Tale and The Hunger Games? Wow. Might have to check that one out... great bunch of reads! Hope you enjoy them. :)

  10. What a haul! I'd love to get my hands on Hyperbole and a half, looks like a great read. I'd also love to read Simmons' books, they look cool.
    Happy reading!

  11. The Vanishing Season looks so good, love the cover and the blurb. Also, I really need to check out the Article 5 series. Enjoy :)
    My SS

  12. Holy shit, Kat. That's a lot of books! I decided not to continue on with Meridian but if it's really good I might be convinced. But I did snap up The Vanishing Season because that totally sounds like a me book. I'll be watching this blog for your review of Season of the Dragonflies. That one sounds like I might like it but it also sounds kind of corny. I will let you take one for the team. Ha. :D

  13. Yeah, that bloody clicky finger strikes again!

    You are too kind - but I do love a bit of corny now and again ;)

  14. Hyperbole and a Half was so good! Perfect airplane reading!

  15. I can binge read the whole series now :-D love doing that!

  16. I was shocked how quickly they build up. Must read faster!

  17. So excited for The Vanishing Season! Definitely plenty to keep my mind off reality!

  18. So many books and so diverse! I'm really curious about The Vanishing Season and I've heard some great things about Hyperbole. I hope you enjoy them all!

  19. WOW! That *is* a huge haul! I've heard great things about Hyperbole and
    The Girl You Left Behind! Hope you enjoy. :) And hope you had a great time back home!
