Showcase Sunday 20-01-13

20 Jan 2013

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky @ Books, Biscuits and Bites. Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren, the aim of this meme is to showcase our newest books!

It's been soooooo long since I did a book haul! This is the first Showcase Sunday of the year for me. Here are the books I acquired over the past 2 weeks :)

The Prey by Andrew Fukuda
The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines
The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines
When We Wake by Karen Healey
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Hooked by Liz Fichera

I absolutely cannot wait to start Unravel Me! It seems most, if not all, Team Adam fans have converted to Team Warner now. I have a feeling I'll probably change to Team Warner too..but I DON'T WANT TO!!!! Urghh.. maybe I'll just stick with Kenji?<3 heheee

Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Hysteria by Megan Miranda
The Laeduin: Disharmony Book 2 by Leah Giarratano
Prodigy by Marie Lu
Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout 

I bought Stolen after reading Sam and Leanne's reviews. I can't believe it's an Aussie book and I haven't read it yet! Will need to rectify that very soon :) Everything about Hysteria screams CREEPY. I hope I'll like it as much as I did Fracture :)

I also received a few ebooks from Netgalley; Dare You To by Katie McGarry (HOLY CRAP. SO AMAZING!!), The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead and The Fault in our Stars by John Green (I LOVE YOU PENGUIN AU!)

A huge thank you to Simon and Schuster, Five Mile Press, Allen and Unwin, Harlequin TeenAU & Harlequin UK and Bloomsbury for the above awesomeness<3

  1. UMMM, HI PRETTY BOOKS. When We Wake sounds SO SO GOOD, as does Stolen, Hysteria, and Abbi Glines' books!!! You have a lovely pile ahead of you, happy reading, Shirley! <3

  2. I just LOVED Stolen and Onyx is a great sequel, so I'm excited for you to pick those up, Shiirleyy!(:

  3. I'm at a standstill with the Shatter Me series, unless I somehow get a copy and feel up to it. I can't wait to read Hysteria! Same with Prodigy. Hope you enjoy everything (+ The Fault in Our Stars!!)

    Check out the books I received!

  4. LOVED The Prey and Unravel Me. Two wonderful books! Anyway great book haul you have this week! I'm definitely looking forward to reading Prodigy!

  5. Shirleyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!


    I've heard great things about Prodigy! I still have to start Legend :X

    I'm so jealous you have Unravel Me! But I seriously HATE that cover.

    eeeeeep Onyx <3 have you read it yet? Opal killed me :((((

    The Vincent Boys was really adorable! Beau and Sawyer are both amazing. I got the uncut version which is quite steamy :D I want The Vincent Brothers!

  6. Oh my gosh, Stolen. It's AMAZING. Beautifully and totally messes with your emotions, I am so so so excited for you to read it!

    HYSTERIA!! I loved Fracture so I have really high expectations for this. Also can't wait to start Prodigy. It's been too long since I met up with Day and June!

    Hehe I'm with you, I think I want to stick with Kenji (love him!) because Warner is MESSES WITH MY FEELINGS RIGHT NOW. DAMN HIM.

    Droooolworthy haul, Shirley. HAPPY READING.

  7. Shirley this is one epic book haul! I can't believe you haven't picked up Stolen either! It's a book that left a really great impression on me, so I'm sure that you will love it too! Also yay for Unravel Me! I definitely switched teams after reading this, but I was left majorly conflicted too, I look forward to seeing which team you will be on afterwards! I hope you enjoy all your pretty books! :)

  8. I feel like I am the only one who is definitely Team Adam after Unravel Me! Warner is not love interest material in my eyes (but I do like him as a character!) ;) Can't wait to see what you think... The Aussie cover is a little odd, I have to say. O_o

    And I'm so glad to see Stolen up there! I hope you like it. :)

  9. Shirley, this is such an awesome book haul! You have Onyx!!! You're sooo lucky! I finished Obsidian a couple days ago and fell in love with Daemon, so I've just ordered Onyx. Hope you enjoy it :)

    Stolen looks brilliant, and I need to read more Aussie books so might add it to my TBR list. :)

    Happy reading, Shirley! I'm looking forward to your reviews :) x

  10. OOh nice! I still need to get caught up on the Lux books! Hope you enjoy all your reads!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  11. I don't want to switch to Team Warner either Shirley, but I'm really excited to see if he manages to sway me. I'm going to try to stay strong for Adam but we'll see! Can't wait to see what you think:) I'm super jealous you have Dare You To as well, I NEED Beth's story!!!!!

  12. the prey and unravel me . eeep


  13. Oh Shirley! What an awesome haul you have here! I can't wait to read Dare to You as I loved Pushing the Limits so much. The Vincent Boys and Brothers, are fav's of mine. I'm sooo jealous you got approved for The Indigo Spell! Dying for more Sydrian. Enjoy your reads Shirley. :)

  14. Holy hell, what an amazing book haul! Stolen was phenomenal, and I hope you really like it, Shirley. :) Who am I kidding - it's written by an Aussie! ;) Hysteria sounds incredibly haunting while both Hooked and When We Wake tickle my fancy! Enjoy all, darling. :)

  15. OMG. SHIRLEY. THE HAUL! *drools* I LOVED Unravel me, and and and and... ONYX! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I can't wait to see what you think ♥
