Welcome to Showcase Sunday, hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea. The aim of this event is to showcase our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed form the libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders this week. For more information about how this feature works and to join in, click here.
I was a bad girl this week. A very bad girl. Sometimes when my husband comes home from work he will ask me "So what do you want to do?" Just for giggles, sometimes I will answer "Go to Barnes and Noble and buy a bunch of books!" Most of the time he just laughs at me. But on Friday, we played this little game and he told me to go. He gave me a $40 limit, but after some serious pouting and puppy dog eyes, I talked my way up to $100. He falls for it every time. So even though I really, really shouldn't have gone, I did. I picked up five new books that were on my wish list, hooray! I'm super excited about reading each of them :)
I also received some of my book winnings this week. Woohoo! I ordered an ARC of The Girl In The Park from Random Buzzers and they sent me a brand new hardcover. SWEET! If you don't know what Random Buzzers is, click the button on my left sidebar and join (US only, sorry!) You take surveys, do activities and the more you do the more Buzz Bucks you earn. Then you spend them at their store for free books! (If you sign up, please list me as who referred you: Mustardcat.)
I also received Hating Heidi Foster from LibraryThing. I almost bought this book a few weeks ago but didn't. I'm glad I didn't because it turned out to be only 104 pages and I'm not spending $13 on a book that small. I've already read it, so look for my review soon!
Lastly, I was super psyched to receive an ARC of Just One Day! I absolutely LOVED If I Stay and Where She Went and I've been anxious for Gayle to release a new book. So yay!
As always, I want to thank all the bloggers and publishers who provided me with these lovely books this week. Oh yes, and the husband :)
What goodies did you get? Leave me a link and I'll come check them out!
