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.

Okay, I’m not sure this is a comeback. I miss blogging…and reviewing. I’m constantly thinking about what I could say in a review and then I remember that I’m not really reviewing anymore. I don’t miss the stress I put myself under from it though. I can’t decide how to proceed. What I do know is that I placed an absurdly large Book Outlet order last week that arrived this week and I wanted to share the pretties with you!
Into The Dim (Into The Dim #1) by Janet B Taylor – I adored this book when I read it earlier this year. It’s a YA time-travel novel set in Scotland. Think Outlander in YA form. I’m overjoyed to finally have a copy of my own.
Touch Of Frost (Mythos Academy #1) by Jennifer Estep – This series is a quirky urban fantasy series that I desperately need to finish. It’s been quite a while since I read it, but I remember it being really good!
TITLE (SERIES) by AUTHOR
#Famous by Jilly Gagnon – This freebie section is brought to you by the ARC shelf at Malaprops bookstore in Asheville. I’ll be honest, this was an impluse grab because the cover is so cute. All I know besides that? Quirky, cute YA contemporary romance.
The Valiant by Lesley Livingston – Female gladiators? That’s enough to grab my attention.
Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner – Beauty and the beast retelling where beauty is even more of a badass? Enough said! I remember hearing Meagan talk about this book when I saw her on tour for This Shattered World and I’ve been interesting in reading it ever since.
The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli – I cannot believe this was there. I cannot believe I have this. I loved Becky’s previous book, Simon Vs The Homo Sapians Agenda. I drove 4 hours to attend her release launch of it and then drove 4 hours back home afterwards. I honestly still haven’t even read the synopsis of this because there is no need. Anything Becky writes will be fabulous.
The Careful Undressing Of Love by Corey Ann Haydu – I’m both excited and nervous about this. I adored Haydu’s first 2 novels (OCD Love Story & Life By Committee), but was disappointed with her last book (Making Pretty).
No Holding Back (Dodge Cove #2) by Kate Evangelista – Gay contemporary YA romance? Gimme.
Sparks Of Light (Into The Dim #2) by Janet B Taylor – Like I said above, I LOVED Into The Dim and I cannot believe I got access to this. I mean, I requested it, but I was completely expecting to be rejected!
Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – I’m about 3/4ths of the way through with this and I adore it as much as the first. It’s so fucking good!
Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon – I really enjoyed the first season of the show so I thought I should give the book a try. This thing is monstrously huge. The audiobook is almost 33 hours long!
Dragonfly In Amber (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon – Audible was having a 2 for 1 sale so I got both books for just one credit.
That’s it! That’s my 2 week haul! What did you get lately? Let me know in the comments!
