Showcase Sunday #20

Sunday, 21 July 2013
Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits & Tea where we showcase all of our recent book grabs.

I only got two books this week but because both of them made me SUPER excited - the proper *happy dance* sort-of excited! - when I took them out of their packages and have been long awaited wishlist reads of mine, I felt like I had to show you them as soon as possible! ^.^

Book Swaps:

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys:
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, ZOE! You are AMAZING! I have wanted to read this book for so long that all I can do now that I have a copy of my own is stare at it in a daze. I'm going to start reading this as soon as I can. Thank you SO much again, Zoe - for the cute little geek badge as well! xD


Article 5 by Kristin Simmons:
Do you know those giveaways where, if you win, you choose a book of your choice from The Book Depository? Well, this is how I got this one! It was one of the first choices that popped into my head when I was told I'd won the giveaway and I am so glad I went for it! I've already read it and... woah. At first I really had no idea how I thought about it once I'd turned the last page - my thoughts were so scrambled! - but know now that I loved it! Chase, you are one swoon-worthy boy! :')

So that's all for me this week. Leave links to your own book hauls and I'll hop on by and comment! :)

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo


  1. Those are the best kind of books to get! Hope Between Shades of Grey lives up to your expectations. When the other Shades of Grey popped up, I actually thought it was that book...well for a little while! Shame it wasn't.

  2. Aw Zoe is AMAZING! Between Shades of Gray has been on my Wishlist since the beginning of time, and I've heard nothing but great things about it. I really hope you fall in love with the book, Rachel!

    Congrats on winning a giveaway! It's always so rare to win, so whenever I do I jump around and dance. Article 5 looks so good and I've read a bunch of glowing reviews for it. I'm so glad you really enjoyed it!

    Thanks for sharing this awesome post with us, Rachel. I always enjoy a good snoop at other people's books. ;D xx

  3. I've been eyeing up Article 5 for a while as I've read so many great reviews about it! :-)

  4. Great haul Rachel! I'm in love with those Geek badges and *jumps up and down*, Holly is sending me some from the UK! *squeals* Between Shades of Gray is so high on my wish list it's not even funny. Happy Reading, Enjoy :)

  5. It's great to be excited about books! And they sound amazing so I hope you enjoy them :)
