'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Showcase Sunday #74

It's Sunday again so we all know that it's time for Showcase Sunday. It's a lovely weekly meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits and Tea, and it allows us to show off all the lovely buys this week. I love this meme as it gives a chance for us to show and browse so many books!

It's been about two weeks since I last did one of these. I don't know where the time has gone and I can't remember what I've bought/ received in the last two weeks either! It's just been one big blur. I've snapped a few pics of the things that I can remember so here they are:


A huge thank you to Random House Kids, Headline, Bloomsbury and Hodder for these!

A huge surprise! Massive thank you to Gollancz and Harper Collins for these!

A huge thanks to the lovely Ula @ Blog of Erised for this one. Perfect read for Mental Health Awareness Month! 

Just as quick FYI! Myself and Ula are hosting a Mental Health Awareness Month in June on our blogs. There will be lots of books, giveaways, author interviews, guest posts and challenges and all to raise awareness for mental health! To find out more and to join us, click here!



  1. I love the covers of Brandon Sanderson books! :D Great haul!

  2. Awesome ARCs! I am so jealous of those, especially The Oathbreaker's Shadow, looks positively amazing. Same for Sanderson's books. :D

  3. Oops I've still not read The Book of You. I loved ACID but not sure about The Fearless from the blurb.

  4. OOh nice! These are pretty much all new to me! Except for Don't Look Back! Loved that one! Hope you enjoy all your new reads and congrats on those wins!
