'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Showcase Sunday #64

It's Sunday again so we all know that it's time for Showcase Sunday. It's a lovely weekly meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits and Tea, and it allows us to show off all the lovely buys this week. I love this meme as it gives a chance for us to show and browse so many books!

It's been a fairly quiet week on the blog this week. I've been re-reading the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones, so there hasn't been many reviews because the book took up the entire week to read. It's so good and always satisfying to finish. The ending still gives me shivers. I've also been a little ill since Friday and still not feeling 100%. Bad time to sink into a bit of a blogging slump too.
On the bookish front, it has also been quite quiet. I didn't buy any books this week but a few books that I ordered showed up :). I received a couple of surprises too from Bloomsbury and Piatkus - exciting! :)

I loved Sarah Pinborough's Beauty so couldn't resist ordering the others. Cress needs no explanation. After waiting a year I am so excited to be starting this today!



Dark DaysStrange and Ever After (Something Strange and Deadly, #3)Renegade (MILA 2.0, #2)On the Fence

  5. Aw, sorry you're feeling sick too. It really is the season! You got some great books - especially from Netgalley/Edelweiss - I must go take a second look. I always miss books on there!

  6. Great haul this week :) I hope you enjoy them all! Take Back the Skies looks interesting (and I am so amused the spine title is a hashtag lol)

  7. I haven't heard of those first two, but those covers are beautiful! And I just love the cover of Cress! And all those Harper books! I didn't know which ones to choose from! LOL! Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by The Cover Contessa!

  8. I have a few of these (White Hot Kiss, Fence, and Take Back the Skies), but I haven't read them yet. The books by Pinborough look amazing, I'll check these out.

    Thanks for stopping by and happy reading :)

  9. Cress is even better than Scarlet and Cinder, I LOVED IT!!! Enjoy all your books :)

  10. Aww, I hope you're feeling better soon Leah <3
    I really want to start Sarah Pinborough's books! They sound really good plus those covers are beautiful.
    Cress! <333
    Ooh, I love the sound of Earthfall! I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for that one. I've got White Hot Kiss requested on Netgalley and Edelweiss because I'm so desperate to get it!
    Great haul, Leah! Happy reading :)

  11. YAY you got White Hot Kiss! I really enjoyed that book! And I also got Strange and Ever After and Where Silence Gathers. I cannot WAIT to read those two. And On the Fence as well - I got it this week too.

    I hope you feel better! You got this, lady!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  12. Lost of lovely new goodies! I can't wait for Where Silence Gathers!

  13. I did not even know Where Silence Gathers was available to request! I cannot wait to read it, I really enjoyed Some Quiet Place. Awesome Haul! I want to check out Mila 2.0!

    Ashley @ The Quiet Concert

  14. Fantastic haul! I really, really want to read Something Strange and Deadly; it sounds like such an awesome series. Yay for rereading Game of Thrones! I'd love to reread all of the books that have been published so far, but the amount of time I'd need to commit kind of intimidates me, lol. Happy reading, and I hope you're feeling better! :D

  15. Cress is amazing! Captain Thorne is a pretty awesome character ;) For White Hot Kiss, it's my favorite book I've read by JLA. Roth is one of the best fictional guys I've ever read about. Strange and Ever After sounds good, too! I want to catch up on that series sometime soon. I hope you enjoy all of your books :)

  16. Great haul. Lots of pretty covers too.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I wasn't sure about Teardrop but after reading your comment, I'm really looking forward to reading it now.

  17. Nice book haul. I don't know much about that Poison series but those covers look really cool. And I am waiting to see if I get approved for White Hot Kiss. Gotta love some JLA. Happy reading!

  18. I still need to get my hands on Cress. Heard great things so far.

  19. Nice haul! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my mailbox

  20. OMG all of these sound so amazing! I've heard a lot about Poison and Charm but never got around to read it. Hope u enjoy all of these and thanks for stopping by my post!

  21. I've been wanting to read Poison, Charm, and Dark Days! I just bought Cress and I can't wait to finish it!

  23. So sorry that you haven't been feeling well - I hope you feel better soon ♥ You certainly got some lovely boos this week anyway: YAY for Cress! I can not wait to dive into my copy as well - I hope you LOVE it! I need to get into the MILA 2.0 series soon as well, it loos incredible! I'll be curious to read your thoughts on Where Silence Gathers...I almost requested it myself but I'd been somewhat disappointed with Some Quiet Place...if this one turns out to be better I might just have to check it out! Poison & Charm look fantastic too - love those covers ♥ Happy reading LEAH xx
