Showcase Sunday #7

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 bought a few books. Who could resist them at £2 from Aldi? Plus, I've been wanting to read these particular Hot Key titles for a while. I also got a ticket to Dawn O'Porter's author event at Newcastle. Yaay!

PHYSICAL BOOKS

Hello there, Hot Key. Look at these four gorgeous books! Can't wait to get stuck in! Such a bargain, only £1.99 each instead of £6.99. I also got a couple of books from the library (stand by for my first Sarah Dessen read!) but the next Vampire Academy that I reserved hasn't arrived yet :(


FOR REVIEW

This week I got The Guestbook by Holly Martin from Net Galley and promptly read it and finished it in a matter of hours. Seriously, this book deserves the five star reviews, it is amazingly funny. I also got my first book from Book Bridgr, A Wicked Pursuit by Isabella Bradford. Let's hope this one is as good as it looks too!
   

OTHER NEWS

I'm getting a puppy! That is all. YAY!

  2. Ooh you got The Elites, i've definitely got my eye on that one and will find it somewhere for a good price, if only i could find these mythical shops that sell books cheaply :) A Wicked pursuit also looks interesting :) Hope you enjoy your haul this week! :)

  3. You'll have to write a review of Paper Aeroplanes. I've been wanting to read that for a while because I'm a big Dawn Porter fan. :)

  5. I hope you enjoy your books! The Aldi here sells books too, but they're Dutch and I rather read them in English :)
