Books In


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)

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

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea.

    Good restraint! πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚

    Check out what I got this week!!!

    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.

    It looks like you've got four awesome books. I love the cover of The Elites. I hope you enjoy reading them all.

    Bellman and Black looks like an interesting book, I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one. Happy Reading!

    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! πŸ™‚

    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.
