Books In


AKA Showcase Sunday

I’ve had my eye off the Mo Hayder ball; I thought there would be no more books in the Jack Caffery series and then Poppet sneaked up on me. So excited to catch up with these characters (even if she scares the willies out of me). Emilie and the Hollow World sounds like a fun, YA version of Journey to the Centre of the Earth and I’m looking forward to a bit of adventure. Oh and YAY, a week after everyone else, I have The Eternity Cure! Book buying restrictions going well, even if I had a tiny The Works slip up this week. I mean, Β£1.99!? Barely counts…

For review:
Poppet by Mo Hayder (Transworld)
Emilie and the Hollow World by Martha Wells (Strange Chemistry)
The Shape Stealer by Lee Carroll (Transworld)
The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa (Harlequin Teen)
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra (Random House)

When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

    I agree, Β£1.99 barely counts! ;)) I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on Martha Wells, Ellie! I got it too, an can't wait to start – it looks gorgeous. Enjoy all!

    Super jealous that you have The Eternity Cure as I loved The Immortal Rules. I also received Emilie & The Hollow World and it has such an interesting premise. Great books, enjoy πŸ™‚

    Deals like that barely count as anything!! It's almost criminal NOT to buy at that price!
    I really need to read The Watchtower is the Shape Stealer is out already! πŸ™‚

    Oh maaan! I went hunting for 'When You Were Mine' at The Works, because I'd seen it on the website already (not that I was looking with a view to buying books or anything *coughcough*), but they didn't have it! *sits in the corner pouting and eating chocolate buttons* πŸ˜›

      Their website is evil…although I have found half the time the things I want our out of stock and never come back into stock ever again. Is a good indicator on whether to go rummage instore though!

    The eternity cure <3 I can't wait to read it! And I still need to read part 2 of the Watchtower series from Lee Carroll, but I look forward to it.

    Happy reading!

      I haven't read The Watchtower yet either. May have to get it from the library as I was a bit so-so about the first book.

    Oh, The Eternity Cure! And I hope you'll enjoy reading When You Were Mine. Great haul πŸ™‚

    Yay! I have The Eternity Cure, too! Hope you enjoy it. I'm looking forward to it. πŸ˜€

    I think Emilie and the Hollow World looks really good, hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚ Hehe, The Works is totally dangerous. Almost as dangerous as the local charity shops round here, which always seem to have something I want to read. πŸ™‚

    Of these I've only heard of The Eternity Cure, but I still need to read The Immortal Rules. Enjoy your books! πŸ™‚

    I can't wait for POPPET! I'm a HUGE Mo Hayder fan — I'll have to so a special UK order to get that one in. No way am I waiting for the US release.

    I REALLY need to get round to giving Mo Hayder a try this year.
