Showcase Sunday #5

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits & Tea where bloggers show off what goodies they received throughout the week.

I haven't done one of these in a while, mostly because I've been waiting for a few new books to trickle in. You can't show off your goodies if you've got nothing to show. The month has been full of super cool books and I'm excited to share them with everyone. 

Foretold - Jana Oliver 

The final book in the Demon Trappers series. I felt like I had been waiting so long for this book to arrive and it finally did. Reading the conclusion to Riley and Beck's story was perfect. I hope to have a review up soon. 

Gunmetal Magic - Ilona Andrews

I haven't gushed enough about this series on the blog, but Ilona Andrews' 'Kate Daniels' series is one of my favourite Urban Fantasy stories ever. Gunmetal Magic is a spin-off book in the series and is a fantastic book. I wish there had been more to the story. 

Biting Cold - Chloe Neill 

If I have to pick a favourite supernatural genre, it's nearly always going to be vampires. I always get a little excited when I read another vampire story. They make me happy. Biting Cold is the 6th book in the Chicagoland Vampires series and it definitely made me happy. 

Pushing the Limits - Katie McGarry

I think I've found another YA Contemporary author that I will forever adore. Pushing the Limits is an amazing and emotional story. Everyone must read it!

Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas

The first book in a  new YA fantasy series. I think I've read more fantasy books this year than I have in a quite a while. It's an interesting start to the series.

Losing Lila - Sarah Alderson

I've been waiting to get my hands on Losing Lila since I finished reading Hunting Lila. This one is full of action and danger and lots of shirtless Alex. It's worth reading. 

Foretold (14 tales of prophecy) - ed. Carrie Ryan

I bought this book mainly for the Richelle Mead story. Who wouldn't want to read about Rose and Dimitri again? I know there are some fantastic authors included in the anthology and I look forward to reading the rest of their stories soon.

Thin Air - Rachel Caine

Last week I started Rachel's 'Weather Warden' series and I'm hooked. Dying for the next books, I ordered books 3-5 online and thought that'd be enough for a while, but a visit to Basement Books meant finding book #6 - so I can't wait for the others to arrive. I've got a lot of Weather Warden awesomeness to keep me occupied now.

Red-Headed Stepchild - Jaye Wells

I have decided I should probably avoid Big W's bargain box. It's usually full of random paranormal or just everyday romance novels, but I have been on the lookout for more Rachel Caine books and in the past I've found them in this box. Well, this week, my local Big W updated their box and I found the first book in Jaye Wells' 'Sabina Kane' series. It sounded like a cool book and for $3.47...I couldn't resist.

And that's it for me this week. Hope everyone's had a good book week! 



  1. o0o0o so much awesome in one post! I've seen those Rachel Caine books around, on sale in a newsagent I walked past yesterday. But they didn't have book one so I didn't buy any. Glad to see you're loving them :-)

    I really want to read Pushing the Limits. Like REALLY. I have to get ahead on my book buying quota and unlock a book methinks! And Losing Lila!!! I loved it :D So So Good.

    Wonderful haul, thanks for sharing!

    1. I really enjoyed Pushing the Limits. It's not like the story is all that original, but it was fun and easy and emotional. I hope you get the chance to read it soon!


  2. I completely forgot about getting Foretold! Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to have to order it STAT!

    1. Yes! Definitely order it! You're missing out an awesomeness, Mandee :)
