Showcase Sunday #18

As of last week I have decided to no longer participate in In My Mailbox. Instead I will be doing Showcase Sunday, a weekly meme that showcases new books you've received, borrowed or bought hosted by Vicki @ Books, Biscuits & Tea. Whatever book mailbox-ish meme you're doing (I've seen at least 5 others) feel free to to link to it in the comments.

Now, on to the super fantastic books I've gotten over this week! The last two weeks I did not get any new books, which was probably a good thing since I have AP exams coming up real soon. If you've noticed the less frequent posts during the week that's why I've been so out of the loop.

Book # 1 
Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
I bought this for my little sister since she hadn't read it yet. I'm really curious to see what she thinks about it. Usually books with more than 300 pages freaks her out. It took a lot of convincing to get her to say yes to this book.

Book # 2
Insurgent (Divergent # 2) by Veronica Roth
I've been dying to read this! It was on display when I went looking for it in the YA section. I'm glad the bookstore had the new releases out instead of locked away in the back room.

Book #3
The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze
The cover for this looks pretty neat! I've heard very mixed reviews about this book so I'm curious to see what it's all about.

Book #4
First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinky
I became more excited about this book after seeing its summary. It's way too adorable to pass up on. Honestly, I wasn't planning on getting this book until I read it. I love the classic She's happy and bright, He's dark with a scarred past bad-boy type of books. That is, when they're done right. Contrasting personalities are always interesting to watch!

UPDATE: I read the first chapter and I already am in love with the book. The voice is so real! You need to check this one out.

Book #5
Tiger  Lily by Jodi Lynn  Anderson + Swag
This book + swag was given to me by awesome-super-fantabulous Asher @ Paranormal Indulgence! *hugs Asher* I was dying to read it since I heard that it was based on the story of Peter Pan. Peter Pan was one of my all time favorite movies but I never fully understood what it was about. Hopefully reading Tiger Lily with clear that up.

Thank you Asher!!!

  5. I bought Divergent last week and I can't wait to finish it. First Comes Love sounds really good too. Great haul!

    Here's my book haul for the weekBought, Bagged & Borrowed (BB&B)

  6. I hadn't heard of The Last Princess. I love the cover for it.

    Loved Divergent and Insurgent!! Hope you enjoy your new goodies

    My Showcase Sunday

  7. TIger Lily looks amazing. I'm a huge Peter Pan fan as well. (To the point why I personify Peter with Peter Pan Syndrome. :P) I hope you enjoy it and that it clears up some of the Peter Pan story for you.

    I got Insurgent the day it came out and fought with my siblings over who got to read it first. Personally, I like Divergent better, but Insurgent was okay. :) It was actually a good book.

  8. I also got Divergent and Insurgent this week! I'm super excited to read them.

    Awesome books!

    My Showcase Sunday

  9. I'm really curious about The Last Princess too. I've seen 2/5 AND 5/5.

  10. Woohooooo for the Divergent series!! I have to stop being a little punk about reading Insurgent and just get on with it. The Last Princess isn't all that and a bag of chips, but that doesn't mean you won't like it more than me. And, even if you don't, THAT COVER makes up for it some :DD First Comes Love *sigh*. I love Kacvinsky's books so I really need to get on with it!

    And you're absoluteeeeely welcome! It was seriously and sincerely my pleasure to gift you the book. Hope you love it! And I'm so pleased you like the swag. I had a hard time deciding what to put into it :)

    1. My little sister can testify that I had a mini heart attack when I opened the package lol. THANK YOU SOO MUCH!

      I didn't know Kacvinsky had any other books, will have to watch out for those. Her writing is a bit addictive.

      Lol, I credit a lot of a books success to their cover makers. Some are really just too hard to resist. I literally stare and my eyes says "Need to get this *_*" while my brain says "Read the first couple pages first, you're probably getting conned"
