Showcase Sunday #98

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! I've had a busy couple of weeks and that's why I haven't had a Showcase Sunday post up in a while, even though I did gather quite a lot of books. I went on holiday to Rome just over 2 weeks ago and it was fantastic! The weather was brilliant - a bit too warm actually - and Rome is such a beautiful city.
OK, onto the books! I've acquired quite a few physical books over the past 3 weeks: a few pre-orders and some books I've been wanting to grab for a while; I got a couple of kindle books and a few e-arcs from Netgalley.

  5. Books! Glorious books!
    I love the bookmark/plate thing we got sent for ACOTAR. It's freakin' beautiful.
    More Jessica! Great success!
    I still need to read Half Wild. But I kind of want to re-read Half Bad too...
    Salt & Stone! Saint Anything! <3
    Because You'll Never Meet Me is getting great reviews. Can't wait to see what you think!

    1. Haha! I love it too! I'm keeping it inside my signed copy of ACOTAR.
      I've got the whole series now so I'm looking forward to more Jessica Darling! I have an e-arc of Half Wild, but I couldn't get into it, so hopefully I'll get into it with the actual book.
      I really need to re-read Fire & Flood! I might do that next month and then read Salt & Stone.
