Showcase Sunday #50

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.

Hey guys. Can you believe this is the last weekend of August? Where does the time go? Actually my one year blogaversary is coming up in like two weeks. That just flabbergasts me. I've been doing this book blogging for a whole year. Wow.  
Books, books, books. There's always books here. I got my pre-orders from Chapters in(yes Silver Shadows has been out since July but because I ordered it with Revenge of Seven it only just came). Plus I may have accidentally ordered from Book Outlet. Again... To be fair, these are some really good finds. They were cheap. I already own/read City of Bones but my copy is a paperback, and I've wanted to pick up the first three in hardback to match the rest of my series. So when I found it on there for so cheap I couldn't pass it up(spoiler, I'll have another Book Outlet order next week that might have another MI book). Obviously.
Netgalley was also good to me this week. I'm excited for all three of those books. As Long As You Love Me is actually for the blog tour. And you're welcome for getting BSB stuck in your head. :)

The Revenge of Seven(Lorien Legacies #5) by Pittacus Lore

Because Samantha is an awesome person and likes to spoil me, she sent me these lovely presents. She went to a Sarah J Maas signing and was beyond nice enough to get the three books that are currently out in the Throne of Glass series signed for me(yes, they had Heir of Fire out early for the event). She also stuck in some other little gifts. The Scottish teddy is adorable and now sits on one of my book shelves. She was also recently in London, so she sent me a key chain and a time turner necklace. Which I display with my Harry Potter collection. Thanks again, Samantha! You are the bestest! <3 <3

What did you guys get this week?

Happy reading!

    I'm so glad you liked your little extras in your package :)

  5. WOW! Just... WOW! I am totally jealous of your signed copies of the Throne of Glass series... I WANT THEM!!! :) Ahhh! I don't know if I could meet Maas though. I'd feel compelled to ask her why she keeps destroying all of my feels.
