Showcase Sunday #10

Sunday, 22 July 2012
Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits & Tea where we showcase all of our recent book grabs.

Now is Good (Before I Die) by Jenny Downham - This book arrived in a surprise package from Random House a couple days ago and since I hadn't heard all too much about it, I logged on to Goodreads. It's had some great ratings so I do hope to get on to it sometime soon! I think I'll also be needing some tissues! Oh, and in case you're wondering; this is the new movie cover edition of Before I Die.

This is Not Forgiveness by Celia Rees - I won this book over at The Book Addicted Girl and am really intrigued to see whether or not I'll enjoy this book. It looks really different and emotional, so I hope I will! :)

To Ride a Puca by Heather McCorkle - I received an ebook copy of this book by the author and am also really excited about getting started on this! It looks really good and the excerpt I read definitely promises just that! Plus, gorgeous horse on cover (and I <3 horses)!

Crusher by Niall Leonard (ARC) - Ohmygoodness, this looks amazing! This is another review book that came through from the publishers (Random House) and it's a murder thriller! And I absolutely adore the cover! I'm actually going to get started on it today, I can't wait!

Thorn signed bookmark (swag) - I also won this signed bookmark over at Page-turner! :D

So that's all for me this week! What about you? Leave a link to your haul below and I'll stop by as soon as I can - promise! ^.^

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

  4. Oooh I'm so jealous of Crusher! Jenny Downham looks really good, I hope you enjoy it!
    I got offered To Ride a Puca too, but since I asked for the paperback version I have to wait a month :(
    I have This Is Not Forgiveness on my Kindle, but after a few pages I got a bit bored and decided to read something else. But I might give it another go soon! :)
    It must have been a great surprise, Random House giving out random books :D
    Happy Reading! :) xx

    My Showcase Sunday:

  6. Some great books. Now I die definitely sounds like a tearjerker so make sure you have plenty of tissues at hand! Hope you enjoy your new books! :)

  9. I love your blog! It is so well-designed and cute! Some great blog post ideas too. How do you get publishers to send you books?!

  10. I read Before I Die a couple of years ago, and I'm really looking forward to the film! I read This Is Not Forgiveness quite recently too, and it was an emotional book, but only towards the end I thought. I still can't really decide whether or not I liked that book...?
    Ooh lucky you for getting two surprise books this week! Hope you enjoy them!

    Happy reading :)

  11. I haven't heard of any of these books before, actually.. But I will check some out! Happy reading ^^

  12. Awesome haul this week! I have already added it to my TBR list.
    Thanks for sharing,
