Showcase Sunday #21

Sunday, 28 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 a couple books again this week but since both look really good, I just couldn't wait another week to share them with all of you. Especially considering that one of them isn't the usual type of book you'd see on this blog! Anyway. Let's get to it!

For Review:

The Elites by Natasha Ngan (ARC):
I am SUPER excited to read this one! It sounds so unusual and way different from anything else I've ever read! I can't wait to see what I think of it. Huge thanks go out to Hot Key Books who were amazing enough to send me out an ARC copy for review! :)

Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith:
So basically this isn't a fiction book. It's like a journal with an instruction on every page and the overall idea of it is to make you do stuff you wouldn't necessarily ever do. Like make holes with a pencil on one page. Collect stickers off of fruit on another. Stick leaves in etc. There's so much to do and it looks like so much fun! Huge thanks go out to Penguin for sending me this to review on their website Spinebreakers.

So that's all I received this week. But I am loving my new goodies and can't wait to get started on them! Link up to your own book hauls in the comments and I'll stop by and take a look. :)

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo


  1. I soooooo want Wreck This Journal!!!! Granted, I didn't know it existed until now, but it sounds absolutely amazing, and I would just love filling in all the pages how it tells you to. I need to buy myself a copy asap. :)

    Ooo, The Elites is supposed to be seriously fantastic! I can't wait to see what you think of it.

    I hope you enjoy both of your lovely new books, Rachel. Thanks for sharing this post with us. :Dx

  2. I have Wreck this Journal but I haven't done many of the actions to it. Not sure where it is now...

  3. Give me Wreck This Journal! See, this is why it's not fair that I'm not a Spinebreaker! I really want it! I requested The Elites too, so I'm hoping it will come tomorrow, really hoping... What a great haul Rachel! :)

  4. OMG I GOT THE SAME BOOKS TO, among others. ;) Haha BUT I AM SO EXCITED FOR BOTH OF THESE!!! Great haul. :D xx

  5. OOh nice! Haven't heard of these before! Hope you enjoy them!

  6. The Elites!!! YAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!! As you can tell, I am so excited to read it and it's currently sat on my shelf and it's taking all my self-restraint to stop me from picking it up. I have it on pre-order too....

    Happy reading, Rachel!

  7. Even though you didn't get very many books, WHAT AN AMAZING HAUL! I really want to read The Elites, it sounds so good. I'm intrigued that the love interest is called Butterfly! Hopefully it will live up to your expectations :) And Wreck This Journal sounds awesome. A copy is coming my way soon xD

    Happy reading, Rachel! You're mentioned in my Showcase Sunday, by the way. I wonder why.... ;)

  8. I LOVE the sound of Wreck This Journal - make sure you post some pics so we can see how you're getting on with it :)

    Happy Sunday!

  9. I've heard so many great things and hype over The Elites, that I really would like to read it ASAP! Lol! :) Wreck this Journal sounds like such a fun and creative way to use it, I think I would love something like that. Great Haul, Rachel! :)
