AKA Showcase Sunday

Some interesting sounding surprise arrivals this week as well as my Olympic tickets (but really, I am so over the whole Olympic thing already and they haven't started yet). Also I had a NetGalley request from around 6 months ago suddenly be approved this week. I would have ignored it except for the fact it's a book I want to read that isn't easily available in the UK.

100 RPM is a collection of music inspired flash fiction with proceeds going to One in Four. As it is currently only 99p in the Kindle store, go buy a book for a good cause!

For review:
Bed of Nails by Antonin Varenne (Quercus)
Origins of Love by Kishwar Desai (Simon & Schuster)
Cold Grave by Craig Robertson (Simon & Schuster)
Predators I Have Known by Alan Dean Foster (Open Road)

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
100 RPM - One Hundred Stories Inspired By Music
The Goddess Hunt by Aimee Carter

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


  1. I got Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar children this week as well - it looks so interesting! Great haul :)

  2. Which was from Netgalley, Ellie? 6 months?!! I'm just thinking of all the requests I've deleted after a month or so of no replying :) Good haul, I hope you enjoy all your reads!

    1. Predators I Have Known. I stuck it on my wishlist but I don't tend to delete requests as the majority get responses. I am good at forgetting what I've requested!

  3. I like the sound of Origins of Love. Unfortunately, I found Miss Peregrine to be a bit of a disappointment, I hope you enjoy it more than I did.

  4. Olympic that's fab!! lucky thing! Netgalley after 6mths wow, i thought they only sent ebooks tho xx

    1. The NetGalley request was one of the ebooks, the paper books came from the publishers but I wasn't expecting them at all :)

  5. Yay for The Goddes Hunt! Great haul! :D

    Drop by my Showcase Sunday?

  6. I'd love to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children some time (: I heard so many great things about it

  7. Origin of Love sounds great! It always surprises me the amount of review copies you get. Lucky girl!

  8. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children looks like a good read.

    Happy Reading!
