Showcase Sunday #84

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

Hello everyone! Apologies for no Showcase Sunday's for the past few weeks, I've been really busy on Saturday's and Sunday's and I just didn't have the time to sit down and write this post. So I have 3 weeks worth of books to show you, and it's actually not that much!

What books did you get this week?


  1. Samantha, you've officially convinced me that I need the UK edition of My True Love Gave To Me. I've been holding off, waiting for Christmas so that I can really get in the mood, you know? But now I'm just desperate. I mean, c'mon, the book has pink edges! Enjoy them all! And This Shattered World :D x Plus have a good upcoming week!

    1. I just HAD to get it the minute I saw in in Waterstones. The pretty cover and the beautiful pink edges lured me in. It's even more beautiful in person! I'm trying to hold off on reading it until December, but it's calling me! I am SO excited for This Shattered World! :D
      Aw, thank you Jess!

  2. My True Love Gave to Me is so pretty! I saw a photo on Twitter a while ago and the pink edges are just gorgeous! Hope you enjoy it :)

    1. It is! I fell in love with it in Waterstones and just had to buy it.
      Thanks Vicky :)

  3. Rogue Wave has a pretty cover, like the first book. I'm still sad I didn't enjoy Deep Blue :( Happy reading!

    1. It does! I haven't read the first book yet, I accidentally clicked the request button for Rogue Wave so fingers crossed I enjoy the first book!
      Thanks Mel :)

  4. Rogue Wave has a great cover. This Shattered World is going to be an excellent book. I hope you love it as well.

    1. It really does :) I'm pretty sure it will be too! It's the first book on my TBR list for next month!

  5. Oh man, if I hadn't posted a SS in a few weeks I would be drowning in the books. I whole heartily applaud your control. *high-five*
    I feel like I will definitely be buy the UK edition of My True Love... I like my copy, but I think I'll love that copy.
    Rowdy <3. Obviously. Great set up for, Asa, eh?
    Thank you for bringing This Shattered World to my attention. I had no idea it was on NG. I have requested it. Let's hope I get approved now!
    Did you read The Iron Trial? I'll have to stalk your GR's. I really enjoyed it. The ending totally surprised me.

    1. Haha, I was actually really surprised I only had 6 books to show! I was sure I had a lot more. I think you'll love it too, it's so pretty <3
      Yes! Poor Asa, he just can't catch a break :(
      I have my fingers crossed for you! If I got approved and I don't live in the US, I think you will too :)
      I haven't yet. I got a review copy from Netgalley, but the format was all weird and I couldn't read it on my kindle. So I just bought a physical copy since I'm sure I'll like it. It's on my list for next month!

  6. Oooh Rowdy! I love The Marked Men series! I've heard it's a great installment as well. Happy reading, Samantha, and thanks for visiting The Readers Den! :)

  7. What great cover art on the two physical copies you've got here. I know it's terrible, but I tend to judge books by their covers.
