Showcase Sunday (1)






Showcase Sunday is a weekly event hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea. It took me a while to figure out what to do to replace In My Mailbox, and I finally made a decision to join a few of my friends and do this meme instead.

I didn't get that many books this week, but the ones I did, I wanted really badly.
For review:






Holier Than Thou is another Aussie YA I wanted so badly it hurt. I loved Buzo's Good Oil so much and I think she has tremendous talent. I also got Night Beach by Kirsty Eagar from Lisa for my birthday. I can't wait to read it with her. Best friends kick ass. 



As always, a big thank you to St. Martin's Press, Hachette Children's UK, Scholastic UK and Penguin ROC, but most of all, thank you, Lisa, for being the bestest ever. 

What did you guys get?

  10. The cover of Nightshifted sort of reminds me of the cover of Working Stiff. While I didn't love that book, I'm hoping that Nightshifted will be just as interesting and hopefully moreso. The cover and title of Grave Memory are easily confused with Grave Mercy, I think:-/ I am beyond, beyond jealous that you have Holier Than Thou. I can't wait to see what you think of it.

  12. Amazing haul, Maja! Holier Than Thou looks so great. And I LOVE the cover for When It Happens. It's so different from the American cover, which personally, I'm not a big fan of, ahah. Enjoy your books and happy reading, Maja!

  26. SLATED! Sam's been posting excerpts on her blog for the past few weeks and it's made me really anxious to read it LOL x) I want to know what happens to Kyla and how everything could work out in the end and I REALLY want to read your review! :) And (as a girl who loves her pink), I think I like that cover for When it Happens so much more than the Canadian version!

    You have a ton of great books this week, Maja! I hope you love them all! :) <3

  27. It took me a while to figure out what to replace IMM with and I finally decided on just "book haul" because it isn't a meme and I feel like it keeps things simple. :P Glad you found a meme for you though. I really want to read Nightshifted, Holier Than Thou and Night Beach! Wish those books were available here.

  28. AAK Slated!! I really want to read that! And Night Beach too! Kat loved it, right!? Awesome haul, ladies!!

  31. Maja, I think we kind of exchange our usual books in mailbox this week LOL! Night Beach and Holier Than Thou is so high on my wishlist. I'm definitely going to wait for your verdict first before I decide to buy these books later! I remember you picked Nightshifter for your Waiting on Wednesday before - I hope it lives up to your expectation! :) Slated sounds absolutely amazing, and the cover... SWOON! <3

    Enjoy your books this week, Maja, and happy reading! x)

  32. Oh I LOVED When It Happens! I read it years ago as my first Susane Colasanti, and as soon as I was done I went out and sought her other ones. Love her.

    Happy reading :)

  36. Me = huge fan of Good Oil and Raw Blue! Me = really NEED Holier Than Thou and Night Beach.

    I seriously can't wait to see what you think of those books, especially since I'm still not entirely sure what the heck NB is about. Tell me, tell me.

    I just finished Holier Than Thou and looooved it. Can't wait to see what you think!
