Looks like Christmas has come early this year... In all honesty I haven't asked for any books this year due to the amount of books coming in from my letterbox. Now look at those review copies... Dream Eyes, was a total surprise and I haven't read the series, but I love a good Fantasy series, So I can't wait to read it! The Lost Girl and Seraphina are from the same publisher and they have had some brilliant reviews. Seraphina is one of those sub-genres of YA that I haven't read before... I never really read the Eragon series so it will be a completely new experience for me! Fated I was totally surprised by... Alyson Noel is a flawless author and I will read anything she writes, she is one of my favourite writers since reading The Immortals. Quantum Drop, Siege and The Day I met Suzie are all proof reads which I am very excited to have received. I have nice selection so far for 2013 haven't I!? (Eeeeeek) Confessions of an Angry Girl, I have heard so many brilliant reviews, it will also be a very different type of book that I haven't read much of before. The Hallowed Ones is for a Blog Tour and I was very lucky to receive a physical copy of the book! Can't wait for January!

NetGalley has been a great week! I have restricted myself from requesting too many so I'm very excited for these books especially Sister Assassin and Geek Girl!

Finally, I couldn't believe the offer that was in my local bookstore for the Iron Fey Series. 3 for £5 (+ £1.99)  for the WHOLE series! (*Shock Face*) I couldn't resist! I loved the Lost Prince and even though I read them in the wrong order, I'm looking forward to getting to know Puck! *Swoon*

This may be my last Showcase of this Year... So I'll look forward to many more to come in 2013!

I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Piatkus, Random House Publishing, Pan Macmillan, Hachette Children's Books, Mira Books, INscribe Digital, Harlequin and HarperCollin'sUK and Laura Bickle! 

Well... What do you think? Have you read any of these novels? I would love to know... Leave me a link to your Sunday Post and I will be sure to see what you received!?

This week I have reviewed Find You In the Dark, Dance of Shadows and Fate's Wish. Be sure to stop by...

  2. I've just finished reading Confessions of an Angry Girl actually (I got it on Netgalley). So GOOD. It was a really nice read actually, a nice contemporary that's easy to read on a Sunday afternoon or something. So I hope you enjoy it!
    I got Geek Girl too, looks very good :)
