Showcase Sunday 4

Showcase Sunday is a weekly feature inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea, used to showcase the books we bought, borrowed, got for review...

 

Won

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
The Lost Saint by Bree Despain

Bought

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

This is my mailbox for the past two weeks. My dear twin sister won an art contest hosted by Bree Despain, and these are the books that she got! (Plus a $30 giftcard... still thinking which books to buy!) And then there's The Golden Lily which I still haven't read, just because if I start I won't stop until I'm done and I still have to study. And last but not least, Something Like Normal which I'm expecting to be an amazing read.

Sorry I haven't been replying or commenting much, finals are too much at the moment ;; But tomorrow is my last one, and I'll be free. An entire month of finals. I think I won't know what to do with myself after (lies! of course I'll be reading ;) ). I hope you have a nice week and enjoy the start of the summer <3

Great haul! I've heard nothing but praise for Something Like Normal so I hope you enjoy it. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on all of these. :)

And good luck on your final exam tomorrow! :)

The Bree Despain books look really good, the covers are gorgeous! The Golden Lily is apparently really good and I hope to read Bloodlines this summer! I've heard a lot of praise for Something Like Normal so I hope you enjoy that too :)

Good luck with your exams tomorrow, Sophie!

GOOD LUCK, SOPHIE! Imagine me wearing my cheer uniform right now to cheer you on while you study for your exams -- you're so much stronger than me to be able to resist reading the amazing books you got this week LOL. The first thing I did was sit down and finish two of mine, and then I realized I have exams tomorrow too that need studying for... :')

But I have a feeling you'll do AMAZING on your exams, and then you'll be home free for the summer! I think reading is the perfect way to spend that extra time ;) Then you can catch up with Adrian's amazingness and remember why we all love him so much! Isn't the cover even more gorgeous in person? <3

And congrats on your win, Soph! I hope you and your twin sister have the most amazing Sunday and another thousand wishes of good luck for your exams tomorrow! I heard that cookies are good brain food -- grain and milk products all in one, right? Hehe x) <3

Good luck with your last exam, my dear, and be sure to enjoy the free time afterwards! :)

And YAY! for such awesome books. I got a copy of THE GOLDEN LILY as well and already read and loved it. ♥ Happy reading!

Hey Sophie! I hope you do well on your exams! Exams are tough, but you'll be free! Great books this week, I also have Something Like Normal, but I have yet to read it. I wish I could read Golden Lily, but I haven't even read the VA series yet. I KNOW. Well, happy reading. :)

That's wonderful that exams are almost over for you! I love the exultant feeling after exams end! So many great books! Enjoy them all!

The Golden Lily is AMAZING. Hehe, I definitely understand your worry, Sophie - it's impossible to tear yourself away from The Golden Lily once you read it! x) Something Like Normal sounds lovely too. I read awesome reviews about it and can't wait to add it to my shelf! x) It's amazing that your twin sister won books from Bree Despain's art contest. Please pass my congrats! x)

Happy reading Sophie! :)

Something Like Normal sounds like such a great read, the cover is super cute.

Congrats to your sister for winning the art competition, and have fun deciding on which books to buy... I wouldn't know how to pick!

This is probably a little late, but best of luck on your exams, Sophie.<3
