Showcase Sunday! (1)

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky from Books, Biscuits, and Tea! This is where I (the blogger) tell y'all (the blog readers) about the wonderful books I got this week! For more information about Showcase Sunday, you can click HERE. (I am not participating in IMM anymore, for reasons we have all heard about. I will support these types of things, and that is all I have to say on the matter.) Now let's see what I got this week!

(Just click on the covers to go to the Goodreads page!)

FROM THE LIBRARY (Usually my main book source - I love that place!):
Coffeehouse Angel
Coffeehouse Angel by Suzanne Selfors. I LOVE Suzanne Selfors. She is one of those authors that I will read pretty much anything by (as long as it's YA).

The Probability of Miracles
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder. I've read a few good reviews on this book, and it looks really good. So I thought :what the keck," and grabbed it from the library. I think I'll like it. I suppose we'll all see, yes? ;)

Diabolical (Tantalize, #4)
Diabolical (Tantalize #4) by Cynthia Leitich Smith. I never read the first book of this series - Tantalize (my library does not have this book). I HAVE, however, read the two books after that - Eternal and Blessed (my library DOES have these books). I really enjoyed those books, so I am SO glad my library got this book so I could read it. Plus, this author is from Austin!

A Little Friendly Advice
A Little Friendly Advice by Siobhan Vivian. I TOLD you I'd read another one of Siobhan's books! And now here I am about to live up to my word. We shall see what I think about THIS book as well, yes?

I didn't get any books in the mail this week, but I DID get a gorgeous jumbo Remembrance bookmark from Michelle Madow.
Remembrance (Transcend Time, #1)

I honestly think this one deserves a drum roll because I am INFINITELY elated to have gotten this book this week. Ready for it? *Drumroll*

The Selection (The Selection, #1)
The Selection by Kiera Cass!!!!!!! I swear, I was at Barnes and Noble, and this book was, like, calling to me. Does that make me sound crazy? It probably does, but those of us who LOVE books have probably experienced this before. Even if you haven't, you could probably at least UNDERSTAND what I mean here. I picked up this book and just KNEW I'd be taking it home with me. Now I can't wait to get to it on my TBR list. I think I may have to bump it up a bit, seeing as how this book is mocking me from my TBR pile right now.

All right, that's all I got this week! Thank y'all for checking out my post, and please feel free to leave links to your own weekly haul posts and whatnot!

Until next post, Friends!



  1. JUMBO BOOKMARK! Gotta love those, right? OH. Dude. I LOVE YOU! YOU GOT THE SELECTION!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! I have been itching to read The Probability of Miracles. Lucky! My library sucks ...appreciate it, Jessica. Appreciate it very much.

    1. They're so . . . jumbo. :) And I can't wait to read THE SELECTION! And my library's okay. In some ways it's amazing, but in other ways, it is very lacking. Like how it has the last three books of the Tantalize series, but not the first one. Grrr.
