Showcase Sunday #65

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Bite a biscuits and Tea. This meme allows book bloggers to show off the books they collected over the last week.

Hello everyone! So this week has been kind of a busy week for me. I was getting over a really bad cold at the start of the week and just lay in bed watching TV/Movies. And I was working quite a bit this week too. I also ended up breaking my glasses (which thankfully I managed to get fixed) and I finally got the tattoo I've been wanting for 3 years. So, this week has actually been a pretty good week. But I'm really looking forward to next week since I'm not working too much and also because I'm seeing McBusted next week!

Bookwise, I ended up buying quite a few books this week. I bought a few from Amazon beccause I was in a contemporary mood and I'd pre-ordered one of the kindle books I got. I also got quite a few review books this week from Netgalley, Edelweiss and publishers. Also, Brittany was wonderful enough to send me a copy of a book that I was dying to get my hands on because Amazon & TBD didn't seem to have it available here.

  6. The Prisoner of Night and Fog looks so good :3 I read a review on it the other day and it was so positive.

    Dorothy Must Die is one that I want to pick up soon! It is one of those where I have yet to read a bad review for it.
