Showcase Sunday #19

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.

Fantastic haul this week! And behind the scenes we have a large box of books for presents. Books are the best gift and I think I've gone a bit OTT on how many I've bought already for other people.


And what a great haul it is! That one all wrapped up pretty is Thornfield Hall, it's just too gorgeous to open just yet. And I didn't even realise that Rose Bride was out, so as I have Wolf Bride on my kindle, and a signed copy of Rebel Bride, I just splashed out on the paperbacks so I could have all three matching.

Today I'm powering through everything that's left on my Currently Reading list so I can get started on my Christmas Readathon tomorrow. Seriously, all I read in December is Christmas books! Want to join in? It's just for fun, but if enough people join I'll have a GC giveaway for participants :)

Also, coming up on the blog tomorrow is a giveaway for a signed copy of Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas and later in the week a signed copy of the prequel novella collection Assassin's Blade. How lovely am I?


  1. Oh, I had no idea there was a Christmas readathon going on! I still have a massive pile of review books to get through, though, so the festive books will have to wait. :(

    Also, Thornfield Hall looks adorable!

  2. Those look like good reads, and I love the idea of reading all Christmas books in December. How fun. I don't know most of those but I hope you enjoy them all. Have a great week. :)

  3. Awesome looking haul! What lovely gifts those will make. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  4. Tha package for Thornfield Hall looks pretty indeed. I usualy just read whatever books I am in the mood for during December, I haven't read as much christmas books at all. I do have one holiday themed novella I plan on reading this month.

  5. All of these are new to me, but I have to saw I'm quite curious about the bride books. Happy reading!

  6. I'm not sure I've ever read a Christmas book. Is that bad? :)
    My Heart & Other Black Holes sounds intriguing.
    Good luck with the readathon!

  8. You have a nice haul! I love all the covers. I need to read more Jill Shalvis and I just saw your reviews for Elizabeth Moss (so now I'm curious about her series). I'm going to try to read some Christmas books in December so I hope you enjoy your list. Have a great week!!

  9. Only reading Christmas books in December is a great idea! I have already read several Christmas stories this fall, so I'm almost out of those, but I'll be following your challenge.
    Have a fantastic week, and happy reading.

  10. The packaging of Thornfield Hall is too adorable, I wouldn't want to mess it up either :) Enjoy your new books and all the Christmas books you will read in December.

  11. Oh, My Heart and Other Black Holes looks really good! And we're big fans of Jill Shalvis ourselves. Nice Christmas reading too. Hope they're all good :) Here’s ours: BiblioJunkies Happy Reading! ~ Bel

  14. Great haul! I love when books arrive all prettily wrapped. It's like Christmas! Enjoy your readathon. I'm reading mostly holiday books this time of year too. I have a feeling pretty soon I'll be ready for something darker. Have a great week!

  15. You know... I have never really read any Christmas reads. Maybe this year I will pick one up. I think it might be fun and might get me more in the holiday spirit!

  16. I recently acquired My Heart & Other Black Holes, I'm looking forward to reading it. Great haul and happy reading.

    Thanks for stopping by my haul.

  17. You have some books that I want… to read and steal! Kidding, don’t steal! :)) Happy reading!
