Showcase Sunday #4

Showcase SundayThe aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else has received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops or downloaded on to eReaders each week. Hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.

Soo over the past few week’s I’ve bought these books. Personally I am so excited to start reading them! It’s pretty bad because I keep putting off reading eBooks that I’ve bought, physical books are just so much nicer to read!

Sweep: Volume One by Cate Teirnan
(The first three books bundled into one book:  Book of Shadows, The Coven, Blood Witch)
I bought this book on a whim because it was on sale at my bookstore. When I picked it up I thought it was a trilogy in one book, so for $10 I was like: Sure! Why not? Bargain! Then I discovered there are fifteen books in this series… When I buy a book I HAVE to have every book in that series… So now I have to buy all of these books. Whoops.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Everyone raves about this book so I thought I’m sure I’ll love it too! Might as well buy it.

Partials by Dan Wells
I stumbled across this book on amazon, there were so many five star reviews that I decided that this book must be awesome. 

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
I still haven’t read Bloodlines! I’m crazy because I bought it as soon as it came out last year! I just knew I would be annoyed waiting for the next book so I kept putting it off… Well here is the second book of the series. Off to read Bloodlines then this one next!  So excited!

I’m pretty annoyed though because The Immortal Rules came with this sticker on the front…
I’m too scared to try and peel off in case I damage the book or it won’t all come off and leaves an ugly white circle left sitting there… Darn it! 

What books did you add to your shelves this week?

  1. I haven’t heard of Sweep before but I am one of those people who likes to have the whole series. I’ve also got The Immortal Rules and Partials waiting to be read they do look awesome. And when I bought the Immortal Rules I did get that sticker on it too and was like ‘Why?!’ and peeled it off and there is a mark left there…. I understand your pain! :P
    Hope you enjoy all your books! :)

  2. I have a bunch of eBooks to read too, but you just can’t beat the physical ones! I keep going back to them and getting more too! I hope you enjoy all of these, Immortal Rules was really good!

  3. Do you know I hate when stickers are put on books! Grrr annoys me so much, because like you said, what if it damages your book! Anyway, some great books here. I am so like you; I have to have all of the books in a series too so once I begin I’m in it for the long haul. I must admit I’m not into vampires or anything but The Immortal Rules looks very good :) Enjoy!

  4. Fortunately for you you’ll only have to buy four more bind-ups to have all the Sweep books. And I cut my series-buying teeth on Animorphs… which has 54 books. Excluding the specials. So 15 books (which I read in the original form, years ago) repackaged into 5 is not a big deal. :P

    Sweep is a fantastic series though, so it’ll be worth it. :)

  5. Wow, looks like you got loads of awesome books! I really enjoyed THE IMMORTAL RULES, and I’m currently reading PARTIALS, so I can’t wait to hear what you think about those. :)

    Enjoy your books, and thanks for stopping by my blog!
