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. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here ~Vicki at Books, Biscuts, and Tea
Accomplish by Eireann Corrigan – It sounds very interesting, plus the cover makes me think of Roswell. XP
Anatomy Of A Boyfriend (Anatomy #1) by Daria Snadowsky – Interesting concept, adorable cover, and cheap price? Gimme!
Dairy Queen (Dairy Queen #1) by Catherine Gilbert Murdock – I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this for a while. 🙂
Abandon (Abandon Trilogy #1) by Meg Cabot – I used to be a big Cabot fan, I loved the first few Princess Diaries, but I haven’t read any of her newer stuff. I’m excited to get a chance to!
The Debutante by Kathryn Williams – I LOVE the cover and it reminds me just a bit of She’s The Man.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Master Of The Clow, Volume 1 (Cardcaptor Sakura #7/Master Of The Clow #1) by Clamp – I LOVED the show as a child and I’ve been looking for a copy of the first one of any of the mangas for a while. I’m so happy to have found it.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Master Of The Clow, Volume 2 (Cardcaptor Sakura #8/Master Of The Clow #2) by Clamp – They also had #2. 🙂
Heiress P.I. by Amanda Mahan – Veronica Mars meets Gossip Girl? GIMME!
Perfect Couple (Superlatives #1) by Jennifer Echols – I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so I can’t wait to dive into this!
A local(ish) Barnes And Noble was having a big future event promoting swag giveaway and they had a whole table full of these goodies. I especially love the dragon poster. It’s so gorgeous. I may have grabbed a thing or two extra to for the giveaway pile for you guys. 😉
That’s fine in normal bookish news, but this week I have some other things I’d like to show off. Plus, I like the personal touch of sharing some of my fangirling with the world.
So last weekend I finally gave in and watched Doctor Who. I had been avoiding it because I knew the actor changes would bothering and the whole fact that the first “series” starts with the 9th Doctor. Shouldn’t it be the 9th series? I get that it’s a reboot and TV show/film makers don’t like to spell that out, but it still bugs me. Also, I don’t always get along well with things that have super mainstream success. Anyway, I blew through the “first” series pretty quickly. I love Christopher Eccleston. He’s just fantastic! I’m only a little ways into the second series, but so far I don’t like Tennant as much. I know that’s blasphemy because it’s pretty agreed on that he’s the best Doctor, but thus far, I like Eccleston a bit better. We’ll see if that changes. I made a point to try to get some Doctor Who paraphernalia this weekend and I might have went a little overboard. Above are the three shirts I got and below is my jewelry and buttons.
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
I have been a MLP fan for a good bit now and a few months back, you could find these little packets with dogtag necklaces EVERYWHERE for $3 a pack. I bought a bunch, but before I knew it there were all gone (except from Hot Topic where they wanted $5.50 for them) and I was sad. This week, I saw a few packs at my local WalMart and I just had to grab them. I was even lucky enough to not get any duplicates. ^-^
Lastly, I got the adorable Toothless sticker and the robot necklace. I love both to bits and I couldn’t resist sharing them with you.
That’s it for this week! What did you get? Are you a Doctor Who or My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan as well? Let me know in the comments!
