Showcase Sunday #8

Sunday, 8 July 2012
Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits & Tea where we showcase all of our recent book grabs.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien - This brand new edition cover just came out recently and so I was very delighted when I heard I'd won the book in a giveaway over at Chicklish. I haven't actually read this book yet *I know, I know* but I hope to get on to it really soon. Thank you so much to the publisher for sending out the book and to Luisa for hosting the giveaway. I'm very happy about having this gorgeous edition on my bookshelf!

How to Date an Alien by Magan Vernon - Some of you will probably remember this ebook from last week's Showcase Sunday. The reason it's being included in this week's too is because the author contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing it. Of course I said yes - it looks awesome!

Freak by E.K. Henry - This is also another review book and will be among the first that I have read with the primary topic on vampires. I can't wait. A game show with humans and vampires? A vampire wannabe slayer as the main character? Count me in!

The author also very kindly signed my book and gave me a signed bookmark! How lovely of her! Thank you so much, E.K. Henry! :)

What about you? Leave a link to your book haul below and I'll stop by as soon as I can - promise!

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo
