AKA Showcase Sunday

Oops, I may have succumbed to the Kindle sale and I was trying to be strong! I do really need to cut back on my book buying. I have a few orders on the way but once they're here that's it for the month. Need to stop the TBR growing...I may have noticed it's gone past 600 now!

For review:
The Ambassador's Daughter by Pam Jenoff (MIRA)
Helen of Troy by Ruby Blondell (Oxford University Press)
The Holders by Julianna Scott (Strange Chemistry)

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr
Wreckers by Julie Hearn
The Particle at the End of the Universe by Sean Carroll
Devoured by D.E. Meredith
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa
Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord
Torn by Cat Clarke

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


  1. The 12 Days of Kindle sale is extremely tempting, isn't it?
    I've just requested that Helen of Troy book from netgalley - it looks really good.

  2. I actually wasn't fancying any books on 12 days of christmas sale, but Wreckers looks really nice, Ellie! The temptation is always so strong! ;)
    Enjoy all your books!

  3. How to Save a Life was pretty good! I don't think I enjoyed it as much as some people on Goodreads but it's a really good read. :)

  4. Hi Ellie

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    How To Save A Life is on my to buy list. I hope this sale lasts a wee bit longer so I can take advantage of all of the good deals.

    Enjoy your reads.

  5. SO MANY PRETTY COVERS! I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a rampant in-the-several-hundreds TBR pile (that I swear procreates every time I turn my back, by the way), it makes me feel less like a freak if there's two of us.

    "And in other news, in a bizarre coincidence two women, both named Ellie, were found crushed under giant piles of books this week. Doctors say they are recovering well and keen to get home to rearrange their treacherous bookshelves."

    1. Haha they'd probably send enforcers round to make sure we got rid of our health and safety problem!

  6. I really need to read Across the Universe. I've had a copy for what seems like forever, and I know a lot of bloggers enjoyed it, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet! Lol. Happy reading!

  7. I have heard really good things about Across the Universe. I really want to read it.

    Here's my Showcase Sunday!

  8. Ooh! You have some amazing books land in your mailbox! :) I really like the Soul Screamers series :D And I'm dying to read Torn, it's sitting on my shelf as well :)

  9. I have a hard time resisting any kind of sale, especially when it comes to books.

    Happy Reading.


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
