Showcase Sunday (4)- The Shadowhunter Edition

SSsmall

Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to 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. It is hosted by Vicky from Books, Biscuits and Tea.

I’ve decided to do Showcase Sunday again because I like the interactivity of it and talking to new bloggers is one of my favourite things to do.

I have a really good haul this week with some very exciting books featured. I can’t wait to read them all! Sorry for the bad quality of photo; the place where I usually take them is messy and I wanted to show the covers of some of the books.

Bought:

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Official Illustrated Movie Companion- I saw this and couldn’t think of buying anything else because it has the most gorgeous pictures and offers a real insight into the making of the film.

 I’m really looking forward to reading it cover to cover.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Shadowhunter’s Guide- This has really good character descriptions and pictures of all the runes which will come in handy very soon!


The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (film cover edition)- 
This came with a free rune charm which I’ve since added to a chain and wear as a necklace.

Brooklyn Girls: Pia by Gemma Burgess- This one sounds really good and I’ve heard good things about it. I’m really enjoying reading NA at the moment, too.

Gifted- Book Swap:

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead- I’ve read the first Vampire Academy book and am looking forward to starting this one. I really want to meet Adrian Ivashkov! Thank you, Hawwa!

e-Books:

Bought:

Losing It by Cora Carmack- Review coming soon! I loved this so, so much!

Faking It by Cora Carmack- This was just as good as Losing It and I really want more by Cora Carmack now!

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West- This was a really cute and sweet read that I really enjoyed.

To Review- Netgalley:

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman- This sounds so good and I’m so please I was accepted. Thank you, Disney Hyperion and Netgalley!

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes- Another one that sounds fab. Thank you, Disney Hyperion and Netgalley

Waiting on the Sidelines by Ginger Scott- Thanks to the author and Netgalley for this one! I’m really looking forward to starting it.

    Ooooh I hope you enjoy TMI, those covers are interesting – I can’t say I’m fan of book covers that have the movie poster though :/ – wait have you read TMI or did you just buy another copy because of the necklace lol? Such dedication with those film tie in books too!

    Bloodlines is pretty good but wait til you get to The Indigo Spell omg 😀

    I love Losing It and I’m sooooo glad you like it too! I have Faking It and I need to get around to read it. Not sure how I’ll feel about Cade because I’m a Bliss x Garrick girl.

    The Distance Between Us is AWESOME. I loved the MC’s voice and her sarcasm. Xander (;

    Annnnnddd THESE BROKEN STARS YOU MUST READ IT ASAP SO WE CAN CRY AND DISCUSS OUR FEELS. I heart that book so much, it’s amazing. Tarver’s sarcasm and Lilac’s prose are gorgeous. Kaufman and Spooner did a really good job me thinks.

    Fantastic haul, enjoy!!!

      I’ve already read all of the TMI books but I really wanted the charm that came with the film cover. It’s my second copy of the book! I’m a Shadowhunter and proud!

      Faking It isn’t as good as Losing It but is absolutely amazing, nonetheless. Cade really comes into his own in it and Max (the love interest) is very interesting too. I loved her so much!

      I WILL! I'm planning on reading it sometime this month so will let you know once I've finished it so we can fangirl.

      Thanks for stopping by, Jaz!

    Wow, Lucy, your blog you’ve changed again. Its looks really nice and different from the other one. How comes you decided to change again?

    I really love the patchwork theme though it so nice. Right onto your SS, I can see your a huge Mortal Instruments Fan, I can’t wait to read City of Bones or watch the film. Eeek, after all I did love The Infernal Devices! 😀 I too received The Naturals, These Broken Stars from Netgalley. Oh and Losing It/Faking It is my all time favourite NA series, I can’t wait till Finding It! Not long now… NA is so addicting isn’t 🙂

    Great Haul, Lucy. Here’s My SS

      I wasn’t happy with the design before because it didn’t feel very warm and welcoming. Also, some people were getting confused with the slider. I hope it’s a good change, though!
      Thank you!

      I can’t wait either! Two days! I’ve got it on pre-order! Bliss and Garrick are the cutest!

      You must read City of Bones right away!

      Thanks for stopping by, Emma!

    I am SUPER jealous, Lucy! I kept eyeing those City Of Bones movie books in WHSmith’s the other day. Another one I want is the little book of shadowhunter quotes. Have you seen that yet? It’s so beautiful!!
    Oh, and Snap! I bought CoB again just for that charm, though I’m wearing it on my bracelet. 😀

      I have seen it and was close to buying it but didn’t in the end. I didn’t have enough money!

      We can match now! Haha!

      Thanks for stopping by, Georgia!

    Ooh I love your header at the top! I really adore Cora Carmack, and so glad you enjoyed them! Can’t wait for her next 🙂 TDBU sounds really cute and I’m dying to get my hands on a copy. I actually haven’t read of TMI series, but I’m hoping the film will inspire me!

      I can’t either! Only two days until Keeping Her! I love Bliss and Garrick <3

      It is really cute and a quick read. It only took me a few hours and was definitely worth it.

      Read the books before you watch the movie! They've changed a few little things and you'll be able to appreciate it more if you've read the books.

      Thanks for stopping by, Debbie!

I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy and love the TMI books, I may have to buy the movie companion, I know I will be an excitable little fangirl lol. That chain is really pretty too!

      I’ll be posting a review of Losing It, but probably not Faking It. I’m not too sure yet! That’s if I can put my thoughts into coherent sentences!
      I was a total fangirl after I bought them! I was sat in this food place squealing my head off.

      Thanks for stopping by, Danielle!

    I’m definitely getting myself a copy of the City of Bones Illustrated Movie Companion – I love those kind of books! I really want to read The Distance Between Us, I’ll have to get myself a copy of it soon. These Broken Stars looks really good as well, so I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

    I’ve read mixed things about Brooklyn Girls – some people didn’t like it at all which worries me a bit. (I got a copy about a month ago but haven’t managed to read it yet) Let’s hope it’s not that bad!

    I have yet to read The Mortal Instruments, however, every time I see a trailer, poster, or the City of Bones new covers it always makes me want to pick up the book. Great books, I’ve heard such good things about The Vampire Academy series. Happy Reading!

    I received These Broken Stars and The Naturals too, so far I’ve read These Broken Stars and I really liked the beautiful imagery/writing style the book had. I’m glad you enjoyed The Distance Between Us, it’s on my TBR list and sounds really good! 🙂 Happy reading!
