Incoming!

AKA Showcase Sunday

Behold my powers of resistance. This is two weeks' worth of books (I know!) including two pre-orders from the fantastic Hot Key Books and a NetGalley invite. So really I only went out my way to get the one book; Katya's War.


For review:
Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield (Atria)
Katya's War by Jonathan L. Howard (Strange Chemistry)

Bought:
Vivian Versus the Apocalypse by Katie Coyle
The Elites by Natasha Ngan



Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

  6. Good restraint! :-) I'm not sure if I should request Katya's War and then read the first book quickly to catch up, but I think I've got so much already, and a bunch that I want to request on NetGalley, that I might just wait until that one's out normally. Hope you enjoy these and have a great week! :-)

  8. I'm actually VERY impressed by your restraint in book-buying! I'm awful, as soon as I walk by a book aisle then they've got me, especially if there is a deal on! And we're actually going out this week with the intention of buying books, (to be fair Stephen's going away with work for 3 weeks so he needs some books to take with him - I'm going to buy some to keep me company - so we do have an excuse!) but it's not going to end well for my bank balance!

    Your books sound AMAZING! I especially love the sound of Vivian Versus the Apocalypse - it sounds so interesting!

    Hope you have a lovely week Ellie, and thank you so much for stopping by my blog too :)

  9. I agree with Megan! I love your buying restraint! I get into a lot of trouble with Amazon's 1 click button!

    THE ELITES sound great!

    Check out what I got this week!!!

  11. Well done, sometimes it's just a bit overwhelming when too much comes in in one week I think. Though very lovely opening parcels. Hmm! I hope you enjoy these.

  14. I LOVE the sound of Vivian Versus the Apocalypse and imagine it'll be off my wishlist and straight into my basket soon! I'm very excited to read The Elites - the finished copy is gorgeous! I hope you enjoy your new reads! :)

  16. I'm really curious about Bellman & Black! I've yet to read The Thirteenth Tale so I'm not sure the writing itself would be my cup of tea or not but I definitely want to give it a try.
