Showcase Sunday (6)

Hi everyone!

The summer is, sadly, over, at least for me. Only a week left before both my daughter and I return to our usual schedule, which means no more lazy mornings on the beach.
Ah, well.
At least I received some lovely books to keep me happy and entertained.

Here's what arrived




Heaven by Cristoph Marzi
The Highgate Vampire by Asa Bailey
Two Weeks' Notice (Revivalist, #2) by Rachel Caine
Spark (Elemental, #2) by Brigid Kemmerer
Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant
Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Ferragost (Lumatere Chronicles, #2.5) by Melina Marchetta
Molasses by Kirsty Eagar
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Since my last SS post, I reviewed Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater and Heaven by Cristoph Marzi.

As always, thank you to Hachette Children's, ROC, Kensington, Mira INK and Macmillan Children's.

What did you guys get? Leave me a link and I'll be there in a nanosecond... or two.


  1. Ooohhh Everyone seems to have Ebe & Adam this week but I am trying so hard not to go to Netgalley until I catch up! LOL Onyx was good and I am dying to read Alice in Zombieland! Happy reading!

  2. It's a shame there'll be no more mornings at the beach for you, I spent some time in the sun on Friday, I can't wait for spring to really start here!

    Old Follower :)

  8. FERRAGOST! I. Am. So. Jealous! I keep forgetting that it's out already but I need to read it so badly! I think I'll just sneak out some of my birthday money which is being used for boring stuff like clothes and driving lessons and buy this instead. I mean, it's Melina Marchetta! You just can't go wrong! ;) Anyway, wonderful haul Maja! I've heard some conflicting reviews of Alice in Zombieland, but I do hope you like it. Plus, I can't wait to read Spark this week myself! :D Happy Reading!

  9. Ooh, awesome books! *jealous face* Onyx sounds amazing, but I need to read Osidian first! Ahh! Spark looks good and I love the sound of Alice and Zombieland. Eve and Adam sound great, the cover is gorgeous! :D Enjoy! :)
    My SS:

  10. Onyx and a Melina Marchetta novel? What could be better? Hope you like both! Very nice haul.

  11. So many good books! I hope you enjoy all of them! And i really need to start on Elemental and Lux series!

    Check out my HAUL.

  12. Amazing books this week! I also got Crewel, very excited for this one!

    I cannot wait for Alice in Zombieland! :D

    Here's Mine @ Pinkindle Reads & Reviews

  13. enjoy all. they look awesome

  14. Oh I'm excited to read your thoughts on the Rachel Caine series, I should really go see what you thought of the first book. I totally wrote off Working Stiff when it came out last year because I hadn't yet discovered my love for Urban Fantasy, but now I'm thinking it's worth a second look.

    I really enjoyed Crewel, though the plot is pretty wrote as far as YA dystopians go. I'm excited to read Eve & Adam as well!

  15. Lovely books! I've just started the elemental series and it's really good so far. I bet Spark is really good too.

  16. ooooh I want to read Alice in zombieland! can't wait! Happy reading!

    here is mine

  17. Ooh, Maja. I can't wait til you read Ferragost! And I can't believe summer is over already. Boo.

  18. I just finished Spark yesterday and absolutely loved it - even more than Storm! I'm starting to get a little obsessed with the Merricks now. ;) Can't wait to hear your thoughts. Alice in Zombieland was a lot of fun too. It's not a book that you can take too seriously, though it was a bit (a lot) clich├ęd in parts. Still, I hope you enjoy it! :) Another awesome book haul for you, Maja.

  19. Amazing book haul, Maja! Ahem... not that I expected any less of you. ;) I also received Crewel and Eve & Adam last week, which I look forward to your opinion for both. And you have Molassess?? I'm envious. ;)

    I can't stop gazing at Alice in Zombieland and Heaven- both have utterly gorgeous covers. :) Enjoy your goodies, my dear. :)

  20. Awesome haul this week! Enjoy all these new books!
    Happy Reading,
    My Sunday Edition @ Paulette’s Papers

  21. So many fantastic books! Crewel and Eve & Adam look and sound really good! :) Happy reading!

  22. Summer is also almost over for me but instead of the beach, there won't be much reading getting done sadly.

    The Highgate Vampire looks really interesting as well as Heaven. Onyx rocks, of course and I have been seeing Eve & Adam everywhere! Enjoy =D

    Here's my Book Haul post.

    Sana @ artsy musings of a bibliophile

  23. yay for Crewel, Onyx and Spark, I've also got copies of them! We should definitely plan a read-along of one of these soon! I had so much fun with I am the Messenger! I can't wait to get stuck into Alice in Zombieland either! Hope you enjoy all your reads hun! :)

  24. Oh you got some great books this week. I can't wait to see what you think of The Vampire of Highgate, I really enjoyed it. Happy Reading !!

  25. Spark, Onyx, Ferragost I can't wait to get to these! Drooling of Alice in Zombieland too. Nice haul Maja! :)
