Showcase Sunday #48



Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits, and Tea. This is where we highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week.

{Books Bought}

 
Found these at Half Priced Books yesterday. I was so excited to find The Diviners although there is a little water damage which I didn't even notice until I got to the car. Oh well. Its not that noticeable. As for Blaze, I have this for review on my Kindle but I would rather have a physical copy.

The Diviners by Libba Bray
 Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) by Laurie Boyle Crompton
 Everybody Sees the Ants by A. S. King

I got all of these for less than $3 off Amazon. I think most if not all of them are still at that price!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls reminds me somewhat of Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children and I really loved that book. Hopefully I will love this one too!

  4. Hope you like Pivot Point; I sat on the ARC for months before I finally got around to reading it, and it turned out to be better than I expected. :)

  5. Great haul you got this week, Laura! I really liked Paranormalcy btw!

    Also, you really should give it a try to All Our Yesterdays, I'm only half way through it and I'm loving it!

    The Diviners is in my TBR list, must get to it eventually, let me know how you like it!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I have seen Paranormalcy around a lot but its not usually the type of book I read but for so cheap I couldn't pass it up. I have requested All Our Yesterdays so I am crossing my fingers!

  7. Awesome haul! I see many books I have myself as well. I hope we both enjoy it.
    I read The Prince some weeks back and it was quite good. And I have yet to read Mila's companion book.
    Happy reading!

    1. I really enjoyed Beauty Queens by Libba Bray but that is the only thing I have read. I am hopping I like this one as well. I still need to read The Selection but it is pretty high on my tbr.
