So here we go: Showcase Sunday as hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea. The time of the week where I get to show off the books I've bought/ received and read all about the lovelies everyone else has gathered :).
This week, the wonderful site of Net Galley has treated me with the book which I am currently reading, that is; Blade Song by J. C. Daniels. Once I'd read the synopsis I HAD to have the book! It sounded like the right balance between the paranormal and the life of crime. Very much looking forward to sinking my teeth into it. I will admit, the cover doesn't do much for me, but here's hoping the synopsis lives up to it! I will be sure to review it following the review I will be writing about Castle's Shadow Rising.
Once again I found myself wandering out the local The Works bookshop - something which is always dangerous. £1.99 for a book or £5 for three. There isn't many book lovers that can turn that one down. So this week, I've treated myself to the following:
So yeah, it's been a pretty successful week! Having not long read and watched Collins' The Hunger Games it has reignited my love of Dystopian literature and one I read the cover of Dashner's work - which recommended him to The Hunger Game lovers - and then read the back, I couldn't resist snapping up all three books of the trilogy! It's unusual that I buy more than one of a trilogy but I couldn't resist! Kava's is an average crime story of a detective trying to uncover the mystery of several drug addled teenagers deaths. A bit different from my usual reads that's for sure!
My books this week are quite different from what I've been reading lately, but I'm looking forward to reading something a bit different to the fantasy/ paranormal genres. I've read an awful lot of them lately and following Blade Song it will be a refreshing change to read something a little different. The plan is to possibly set myself some form of Dystopian or Margaret Atwood challenge. I've always wanted to read her books but have only managed a sorry amount of two! Pathetic ha. So that will be the next goal :).
This has been my weekly buys so I'm looking forward to reading about everyone else's!
