Showcase Sunday #6

Showcase Sunday is a new weekly Meme that I am taking part of. This weekly meme is hosted by Vicky over at Book, Biscuits and Tea and for more info click on the SS image which will take you straight to the blog. Click on the images of the books to take you to Goodreads.

Swap Books

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

I did a swap a couple of weeks ago but instead of a book I received a gift card for the postage and when this book went down to £2.80 I just knew it was the book for me. I have had it on my wishlist for ages but never got around to getting it but at that price who was I to refuse.

Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison

Another swap book and another one that I have been after. I love re-tellings so I'm hoping I will love this too.

Review Books

Velvet by Mary Hooper

This book arrived yesterday but I wasn't expecting it at all as it was a few weeks ago when Bloomsbury emailed to see if anyone wanted to review it so I just thought there wasn't enough books available. Thanks to Emma over at Bloomsbury.

Vampire Shift by Tim O'Rourke

Tim O'Rourke contacted me through Facebook to see if I wanted to review his books and seeing as I have been dying to read this series I jumped at the chance and has now sent me an ecopy of it. Also we have been talking about me hosting a giveaway for this book so watch out for that :) A big thanks to Tim O'Rourke.

So that's the books I received this week. What did everyone else receive?
