Showcase Sunday #6

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea and is a chance for everyone to show off what they've acquired during the week.

This week I have received so many books. So many. And lots of bookish swag like bookmarks and postcards and pencils, and even some chocolates! The poor postman!


Four library books this week - it took longer than expected for the last Diary of a Crush to arrive and I thought I'd give some popular YA that I haven't read a go. And then I ended up in a charity shop or five hence The Cadaver Game, On Dublin Street, The Accidental Life of Jessie Jefferson, Breathe and Vanishing Point.

Then came the package from Alana Albertson - she sent me two copies of The Ice Queen and Love Waltzes In, one each for me and the others to give away! So yay for upcoming giveaways!

Unravelling Oliver and Gingerbread came from publishers, both look pretty up my street and I can't wait to get stuck in.

And then? An amazing book-and-swag goodie bag that I won from Shaz's Book Blog and Choc Lit. The pencils smell like chocolate!


Yes, yet again I couldn't resist Net Galley. White Hart by Sarah Dalton (YAAAAAAY) and The Perfect Match by Katie Fforde are just two of  the books. Because my name is Cora and I have A Book Problem.


So, what delights did you get this week? Share away!


  1. Awesome haul! I see Mead there, love the woman to pieces, hope you enjoy her! And I love the look of Vanishing Point. Still haven't read Breathe, I'll have to get on that soon.
    Happy reading!
