Showcase Sunday #14

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.

Not much this week because work has been more than hectic enough, but both books are fantastic. The second they dropped through the door, I had the packaging open and my head buried between the pages. Seriously, go out and get these books now.

War Girls is written by a whole host of my favourite UKYA authors, and each of the short stories is breath-taking. Just thirty pages had me in tears.

The Castle was featured in my Wishlist Wednesday a while back and was my first ever review-copy request. Ever. So I was thrilled when it came through the door on Thursday.

What do you have this week?
