Showcase Sunday #26

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme held by Books, Biscuits and Tea. It allows fellow bloggers to show off any books or bookish things they've compiled over the week.

You know what pisses me off? Pre-ordering. What's the point of doing it if you're not going to get the books? I had 4 books pre-ordered that came out on the 4th(what book didn't come out on Tuesday?). I have two of them in my possession. And they didn't even get to me on Tuesday. I ended up cancelling my other two and re-ordered them through another store. I don't want to name names *cough*Amazon*cough* but that is not the terms of your pre-order guarantee.
Rant over. On to books.

  5. Amazon SUCK when it comes to pre-orders. I've completely stopped pre-ordering things from Amazon (unless is kindle books) because they always show up late.
    Half-Bad! It's so pretty in hardcover! I wasn't a major fan of How I Live Now, but I hope you end up enjoying it more! Ooh! I haven't heard of OCD Love Story before and now I want it. One Man Guy sounds really good too!
    Great haul, Brittany! Happy reading :D

  6. I hate it when pre-orders take too long to arrive. Half Bad and Fire & Flood look really good, I can't wait to grab them myself. :)
    Happy reading.

  7. I always pre order but agree that they should come quicker!!! I so want Half Bad!! It sounds so good. I also need to get The Shadow Throne. Enjoy them all!
