Stacking the Shelves/Showcase Sunday (8)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
These memes are a replacement of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox.

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

I received four very different books for review this week - only one of which is actually YA! I am most excited to read and review Why We Broke Up, so expect a post for that very soon! I also received French Lessons as part of a blog tour I will be participating in. As well as those, I received Cox and Split Second

 I made quite a few swaps this week and received some awesome-looking books in return! I received two books by Jennifer Echols, The One That I Want and Love Story which I'm very excited about - I've only read Going Too Far by her, but I loved it, so I'm hoping these ones will be just as good! I also got The Girl in the Mask, Crave, The Rules for Hearts and a copy of Once a Witch!

 I was gifted a copy of Mad Love by the lovely Jade @ Ink Scratchers this week, thanks Jade! I also won an awesome prize from Electric Monkey including a cool satchel, a finished copy of Dads, Geeks & Blue Haired Freaks and an ARC of Zombies Don't Cry!

 Yep, even after getting all of those other books through the mail, I couldn't resist buying a few! I had a pretty rough time at the doctors on monday, so I walked down to the local indie bookshop (which may not actually be closing now they have plans for a cafe inside it!) and bought a copy of a book I've been after for a while - Grave MercyI am always on the look out for books with a LGBT focus and when I found out about About a Girl, I had to buy a copy of that. Courtesy of The Book Depository summer solstice 24 hours of offers, I also bought a copy of a YA contemporary - Lex - for a couple of quid!

I hope you've all had an equally successful bookish week!
What books did you get?


  1. I love the cover to Why We Broke Up! It is just so striking. Eee Grave Mercy! I've been dying to get my hands on this book and I've just looked at the price on amazon and I'm even more tempted now! Hope you enjoy all of these amazing look books :) Thanks for sharing!
