Showcase Sunday #73

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.

Home skillets, what's up? This week has seemed ridiculously long. Possibly because it's been super freezing. Like -30, my fingers are literally falling off freezing. Thankfully it's the Family Day long weekend. I also finally got in to see my doctor. And he set me up with specialist appointments and I also had to get blood work done. So I went to get it done right away and they're like there's a problem with your health card. And I'm like ummm...WTF?(Canada friends, I was still holding on to my red and white one). And than there was problems getting a new one. And so I just spent my day off driving around and getting nowhere. So I did the natural thing and bought books. If I hadn't of gone to Chapters people would have been getting throat punched. I just saved some strangers a lot of pain by buying books. #legitreasoning
Good haul this week. Besides my unexpected book purchase, pre-orders came in. Fantastic review books. And I finally caved and bought Dirty Rowdy Thing. I was trying to wait for it to go one sale. But I couldn't hold off any longer.


Rebound(Boomerang #2) Noelle August: Read it. Really enjoyed. A lot more than the first book.
Salt & Stone(Fire & Flood #2) by Victoria Scott: THERE BETTER BE A THIRD BOOK! Obviously I read this one this week as well.
Tangled(Tangled #1) by Emma Chase: A friend recommended this one because I like Alice Clayton's book. So many LOLZ. Just finishing it up.

Station Eleven by Emily St.John Mandel: Heard soooo many amazing things. Plus it takes place in Toronto. So on my Canadian reads list it is.
My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga: Another hard hitting YA that tackles mental illness and suicide. Been wanting this one since the cover was revealed. I will have tissues ready.

E-Books Purchased

Dirty Rowdy Things(Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren: I caved and spent too much money on it. But I couldn't wait for it to go on sale. Loved it. Even more so than the first one.


The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: Thank you so much Raincoast for sending out this beautiful finished copy. I've read a handful of Hannah's books and have loved them all. So I'm sure this will be no exception.


The Trouble with Destiny by Lauren Morrill: This one isn't out until December. So although I love the premise, I'll be a good girl and hold off reading it for quite a few months.

What did you guys get this week?

Happy reading!



  1. Oh The Nightingale! Read it because I want to know what you think! The bit about the health card sounds crazy and oh so frustrating. I hate going to the doctor at the best of times but throw in administrative red tape and I would've needed bookstore therapy as well. Hope all is well healthwise and everything gets take care of soon. And seriously -30? I don't think I would leave my house!

  2. Great haul this week. I am determined to get to Rebound soon, I thought Boomerang was such a quick, fun and easy read. I really hope Rebound doesn't disappoint. I hope you enjoy them all :)
