Showcase Sunday #137

Showcase Sunday

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, Biscuits, and Tea

I meant to post this weeks ago, but life and procrastination got in the way.  Anyway, this is where the last bit of my Christmas/Birthday money went.

Books

A Conjuring Of Light (Shades Of Magic #3) by V E Schwab – I’m only 50 pages from the end of this and I know it ends well because my husband has finished it and he didn’t fly into a fit of rage, but I’m a little scared to finish it. What am I supposed to read after this book is over?

City Of Saints And Thieves by Natalie C Anderson – We went to the release event of this novel at Malaprops last month and there ended up being an ARC on their giveaway shelf, so I grabbed it to get it signed. It sounds interesting!

Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl – This book is either going to be really good or really horrible. I’m excited to find out which!

Lucky In Love by Kasie West – I have really enjoyed all of West’s books so far and I’m really looking forward to this! I was so excused to find it on the freebie shelf.

The Fashion Committee by Susan Juby – I’ll be honest, this was mostly a cover grab. Contemporary YA with a fashion angle? I’ll give it a go!

No Good Deed/Eat Dirt by Goldy Moldavsky – I grabbed this because of the bright color and because I’m really interested in Moldavsky’s previous book, Kill The Boy Band.

Get It Together, Delilah! by Erin Gough – The was a complete cover grab. This is the cutest cover I’ve seen on a book so far this year. Plus, I’ve yet to read a really good queer woman romance, so I’d like to give that a shot.

Graphic Novels

Goldie Vance Volume 1 by Hope Larson, Brittney Williams, & Sarah Stern – Lauren gave this to me. She’s gotten the first bind-up so she didn’t need the single issue anymore. I don’t really know what it’s about, but I’ll give it a try! Also, I couldn’t find a GoodReads page for the single first issue, just the first bindup, so I didn’t link one!

The Mighty Zodiac Volume 1 by J Torres, , Corin Howell, & Maarta Laiho – I don’t really know much about this, but it was a Volume 1 on clearance for $1, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Fluff My Life (I Hate Fairyland #2) by Skottie Young – I adored Volume One of this graphic novel series and I’m interested to see where it goes.

Saga Volume 1 by Brian K Vaughan & Fiona Staples – I’ve only read a few pages of this, but I love Alana. She’s so awesome.

Nnewts Volume 1: Escape From The Lizzarks by Doug TenNapel – This was just a couple dollars at a used bookstore and the art looks cute so I’ll give it a try!

SWAG

So I got the Winter gloves and tattoos, the Wonderful Valentine & buttons, the Furthermore guide, the cardinal coloring sheet, the glasses, and the I Am A Child Of Books pen all from the freebie shelf at Malaprops.  The Shades Of Magic book sleeve thing I got from pre-ordering A Conjuring Of Light by V E Schwab.  I’m really sad about it because it’s torn right through Lila’s side.  You can’t see it super well in the picture, but if you check my instagram (@piratevanrock), you’ll see a much better picture showing the tear.

 

That’s all I’ve got in the past few weeks.  What have you gotten?  Let me know if the comments!
