AKA Showcase Sunday

I never know what to categorise books from newbooks magazine as. They are sort of for review as you're meant to "tell all your friends" and the stickers say they are free but you have to pay £3 each for postage...which is more than postage costs. I just stick them under bought as that way, if I forget to read them, it doesn't matter!

For Review:
Devil's Bargain by Rachel Caine (MIRA Ink)
Monsieur by Emma Becker (Constable)
Coveted by Shawntelle Madison (Ballantine Books)
Kept by Shawntelle Madison (Ballantine Books)

Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner
The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


  1. Absolutely amazing books this week, Ellie! Very curious about The Virgin Cure and Monsieur, and looking forward to your thoughts on the rest. Enjoy!

  2. I won a copy of Devil's Bargain recently so I'm really looking forward to reading that too. Maggot Moon and The Virgin Cure sound like interesting reads. I hope you enjoy them, Ellie! Great haul. :)

  3. Great haul this week :) Maggot Moon as a title (and its cover) sounds intriguing!

  4. Oh cool! Haul, I love the covers! Especially for Devil's bargain!
    Happy reading :D

  5. My copy of Devil's Bargain turned up a bit damaged - not something I can complain about really. :p Are Coveted and Kept from NetGalley? *intrigued*

    1. Yes, NetGalley. Not impressed by covers but I like a bit of werewolfy urban fantasy and I approve of supplying book 1 to help promote book 2.

  6. Monsieur looks interesting - that would have been a good one for Paris in July!

  7. Hi Ellie

    Yet again, you come up trumps with a varied selection of books.

    Devil's Bargain has a premise that sounds interesting.

    Hope that you enjoy your reads.

  8. I really need to pick up a copy of Maggot Moon somewhere, I've heard such amazing things about it!

  9. Great books this week! Monsieur looks really good - and what a stunning cover!

  10. You are rockin' the book haul this week! Wow, you have some very happy reading in your future! Enjoy!! My Sunday Edition @ Paulette’s Papers

  11. I don't recognise any of your books this week. I hope you'll enjoy them. Happy reading!
