Showcase Sunday #4

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 has been pretty slow for me - I'm feeling a little under the weather and I've opened up review request again - seems like some people were waiting as I've had loads :O

IN THE POST

This week, A Higher Duty by Peter Murphy dropped through the letterbox thanks to Real Readers. This one looks really interesting although I have to admit I probably wouldn't have picked it up. Also, a friend sent me Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender because it's all sorts of girly fun which doesn't need too much thought and I've been pretty under the weather and feeling down this past week or so.

   

NET GALLEY

This week I got a couple reads from Net Galley. It Felt Like A Kiss by Sarra Manning and The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow. Both look like the kinds of books I need right now and I can't wait to get stuck in. I've just finished another Sarra Manning book, the second Diary of a Crush which I haven't read since I was in highschool - but the pretty new covers on the re-issue meant I couldn't resist. Reviews should be up next week.

   

What lovely books did you snag this week? Have you read any of these? Share away :)

Also, don't forget to check out the post below this - there's an international give-away worth over $75 and you could win. Plus, the book is all kinds of awesome.

  11. I looked at The Secret Diamond Sisters but I think I managed to resist adding it to my stack. I should check to be sure. It must be time to look at the review stack and get the dates for reviews on my calendar. Happy reading!

  12. I enjoyed Secret Diamond Sisters -- it's kind of like Gossip Girl in Vegas, and I really needed a fun, fluffy read last week.

    Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer does look like a really great read! It Felt Like a Kiss sounds so cute! It's been a while since I've read a Sarra Manning book. I read the Diary of a Crush books years ago as well. I need to get around to getting the new covers.
    The Secret Diamond Sisters sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun as well!
    Great haul! Happy reading :)
