Showcase Sunday #2

Sunday Showcase is a cool new meme created by Vicky @ Book, Biscuits, and Tea! It's a great new way for bloggers to showcase the books they've gotten in the past week, and I'm excited to take part. :)


Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls by Mary Downing Hahn
I've never heard of this one before, but doesn't it sound really good? It's about a guy who gets accused of murder even though he's innocent, and the girl who believes him. Yay for mysteries!

Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Tell me you didn't look at this book and think, "That is SO Mimi!" Because even my mom took one look at the cover and pegged it as my kind of book LOL. I'll be starting this one soon! :)

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
I actually already read & reviewed an ARC of this one a few months ago (you can read my review HERE), but I loved it so much that having a gorgeous finished copy come was a really nice surprise! I'll probably end up gifting it to a friend to share the love like I always do with extra copies :)

The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze
I just finished reading this one last night and surprisingly enjoyed it! I'll be reviewing this book sometime this week, so stay tuned!

Winter White by Jen Calonita
Soooooooooooo excited to read this one! I crazily-adored the first book, Belles, and you don't even know how pumped up I am to be able to meet up with my favourite girls, Mira and Izzie, again! It may not be coming out until October, but I'm starting it ASAP! ;)


A signed A Temptation of Angels bookmark and book plate from Michell Zink! Thank you so much, Michelle! They really go perfectly with the copy of A Temptation of Angels that I already owned. I still haven't read it yet, but as soon as my review schedule clears up, I definitely will :)


New Girl by Paige Harbison
This book was heavily hyped up by the usual blogs I follow when it first came out, some good, some bad... But I have to admit that the main reason I want to read this book is because I've heard that the MC's name isn't revealed until the very end, and I really want to know what it is! x)
Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
This is going to be my first book by Maria V. Snyder! I tried to get Posion Study but they don't seem to have that one in my library anymore... Still, I've been recommended MVS since day one, and it's about time I found out what the hype's about! :)

I will never, ever, EVER get tired of getting books! You have to be a hard-core reader to understand that, which I'm sure all of you are too ;) Thank you so much to the fantastic representatives of Thomas Allen & Son and Hachette Book Group Canada for sending these squee-worthy books to me, and to Michelle Zink for the sweet bookmark and book plate!




  1. Wow. What an awesome haul, Mimi ;) I need to get A temptation of Angels. I have the fridge magnet of it, it's such a beautiful cover. Dying to read it, as well. And congrats on the bookplate and bookmark. Michelle Zink is the coolest. So lovely to her readers.

    Happy Reading, hun :)

  2. Soooo many amazing books like usual, Mimi! I can't wait to hear what you think of The Last Princess. Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink looks very interesting too. Love the title! <3 Judt like Belle, Winter White has such a lovely and elegant cover. I bet they would look very beautiful together! :) I LOVE Maria V. Snyder's Study series, but I haven't got time to read Touch of Power. I hope you'll enjoy it because your review would definitely influence me to start reading it! x)

    Happy reading, Mimi, and enjoy your books! <3

  3. winter white looks really cool! Enjoy!

  5. Looking forward to your review of The Last Princess, I hope you enjoy all your books ! :)

  6. I love your Sunday Showcase Button! its beautiful! All your books sound awesome! I just discovered Enchanted last night and it sounds like an incredible book! I hope you enjoy the Belle's sequel, I really need to buy Belles sometime, it sounds fantastic and I love Jen's other series!
    Enjoy all your new books!

  7. Temptation of Angels looks really good. I haven't read that book yet myself even though I have a copy, so I can't wait to read your review! Maybe it'll convince me to bump it up the reading list. ;) Awesome haul this week, Mimi! The Last Princess looks great and I've been wanting to check that out. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Gah! So jealous that you got Pilgrims and Winter White. Awesome haul! :D

    Fara @ Tumbling In Books

  9. I heard Mister Blue Eyes is a really intense read! AND AHHH JEALOUS OF ENCHANTED! I haven't read it yet but I really want to, you make me so excited to read it!! The Last Princess also sounds really good. I hope you enjoy your books, Mimi x

  10. You got The Last Princess! I'm dying to get a copy of that. :D

    ComaCalm's Corner =^.^=

  11. The Last Princess sounds really good from the synopsis, can't wait for your review :)

    Enjoy reading them all!

    Check my mailbox? :)

  12. The Last Princess, A Temptation of Angels Enchanted look 10 kinds of amazing. Can't wait to read them <3 Love Touch of Toper TO DEATH. You MUST read Poison Study soon.. *jumps around* ENJOY!!

    All Hail The Mail!

  13. Oooh great books! Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink sounds really fun, and I just won a copy of Belles today, so that's exciting!

    Too bad your library doesn't have Poison Study! That one is really good, but I do really want to read A Touch of Power. :D

    Here's Mine @ Pinkindle Reads & Reviews

  14. Oooh what an exciting haul this week, Mimi. :D I'm so happy you got a copy of New Girl... I LOVED that one so I hope you do too! I did a double take when her name was mentioned in the book as I wasn't really expecting it! ;)

    I definitely need to read Belles, eh? I don't think I've seen a bad word about it!

    Happy reading! :D

  15. Ooh! Some really nice-looking books! I got 'the iron king', 'the iron queen', 'ashes', and 'goddess interrupted' for my kindle this week as there's a sale on for the queen's jubilee :)

  16. Oh, I hope you love Maria V Synder - she's one of my favourite authors and I adored Touch of Power!

  17. Eeeeeeeeeep, New Girl!! I still need to read that one - it's been on my Kindle for ages. Lots of fabulous books this week! :)

  18. I did not realize that the Belles sequel would be coming out this year-I think I will probably wait so that I can read both in one go! The first sounded really enjoyable and I know I would enjoy reading them back to back.

    I also really like the sound of Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls; hadn't heard of it before but just added it to my tbr-list.

    Hope you love Touch of Power and Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink-I thought both were pretty amazing!

  19. You got so many good books this week. You are so lucky! Maria V. Snyder is a wonderful author. Her Study-series is amazing! I have not read Touch of Power yet, but I know that it is set in the same world as the Study-series, but with different characters. There might be some spoilers for the Study-series or confusing moments. Probably not... :) Although I would recommend starting with the Study-series. I'm sure you'll enjoy them either way :)

  20. I absolutely LOVED Touch of Power, so I'm hoping you also really enjoy the book too! It had just the right amounts of action and suspense, plus a touch of romance too. I'm really excited for book two in that series. Enjoy your new books! :)

  21. I want Enchanted so bad! Love stories with a frog turning into a prince! Awesome that you got Winter White. I know you loved Belles and that series sounds so good! Nice Temptation of Angels swag. I still need to read that book as well as New Girl and Touch of Power too. lol So much reading to do. I hope you enjoy all your new books. Happy reading!

  22. OOO, you've got The Last Princess, Mimi!!!! I so want to read it! :) Great bookhaul this week (but your book hauls are usually awesome anyway ;) Enjoy all your reads, sweetie!

  23. OHHHHH, Mimi, you really have the most amazing mailboxes everytime. Pilgrims don't wear pink does look like something for you. I don't know you so well (yet?) but I think you're going to love it. I have been reading some great reviews :) and I think I'm going to give it a show myself.

    AND OH YOU GOT ENCHANTED. I'm dying to read that book, but I don't have the money right now. I've been spending too much already, haha. I hope there's an ocasion soon, so I can grab a copy myself. It sounds SO good and something I really going to love :D Fairytaaaaaaales <3

    The last princess has such a pretty cover and it sounds great!

    And A temptation of Angels, wohoehoehoe. I still haven't read that book, but I loved her Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy.

    Happy reading sweet Mimi! You have a mailbox I dream about, haha.

  24. I've never heard of Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls but I always love an mystery and romance together! Pilgrim's Don't Wear Pink does look exactly like a Mimi cover! So sweet and super-cute!! Can't wait to see what you think. Nice haul Mimi. :)

  25. I still need to read Belles! That is one I am hoping I can read this summer, but how awesome to have the next book! I will be on the lookout for your The Last Princess review! Enjoy!!! :)
    You can check out what I got this week HERE!

  26. Wow, wow! So many pretties :D The Last Princess and Winter White look really great. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them. And Enchanted! Ever since I read your review I knew I had to read it. I'm still waiting for my chance to do so, but it'll be very soon! :)

    A Temptation of Angels seems pretty interesting, too. And Touch of Power! <3 That was the first book I read by Maria V. Snyder and I LOVED it. I hope you do, as well! <3 I haven't read New Girl, though.

    Have an amazing week, Mimi! Here it's bound to be hectic with exams coming up and all of that, but I'm hoping I'll still find time to read :)

  27. Omygoodness The Last Princess and Enchanted? SOOO jealous! ;) I still need to read Belles - it's on my "soon" list!

    Ok and New Girls - ick. I hope you like it more than I did, but there was something just super duper offensive about it. All the language and sex and drinking and BLECH. It filled the book and I wasn't able to care for anyone at ALL because they were all doing stupid things to get back at people. Talk about petty.

    But anyways. Touch of Power, on the other hand....whoooohooo Kerrick!!! You're going to love him, and this book. I just know it. At least, I hope it. ;)

    Enjoy darling! :D

  28. Where do I start?!?!?!? LOL all of those books look absolutely fabulous!!!!! And I feel like such a loser because there are so many series here that I have not even started like the Prophecy of the Sister series (that is what it's called right...please say yes or that would be so embarrassing!). And I know I'm not supposed to judge a book by it's cover and all but Enchanted looks so...GOOD...! Love your haul and I am definitely looking forward to your review of Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink ;-)


  29. sweet week..Winter White and the Pilgrim book have piqued my interest, look forward to your reviews. You can see my books and news on The Sunday Post

  30. Oh I can't believe I still haven't gotten to Temptation of Angels. I love Zink's other books and was so excited for it to come out! Soon, though! Great books!

  31. I love the cover of Touch of Power. I've been wanting to grab that one for a while now. Maybe I'll find it on sale somewhere.

  32. I've been seeing the last princess everywhere and it looks so good! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week =) Here's my IMM!

    ~Paige @ Comfort Books

  33. Mimiiiiii!!!!! You got Winter White!?!!?! I want it! I'm going to have to put in a request :P Because I loooooved Belles! I think Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink looks pretty good as well, so I'll have to check that one out too :)

    I also enjoyed The Last Princess, it was a good read. And I think I need to check out A Temptation of Angels. Ugh, so jealous of your new books, I hope you enjoy them all!

    Happy reading!

  34. Lots of great books here! Enjoy them! :)

    Thanks for sharing,

  35. oh wow! another wonderful week for you Mimi! =)

    I have not even read or purchased Belles yet and you do have the sequel of it, how lucky you are =) Enchanted do sounds like a fantastic read

    have fun reading them all!

  36. I so totally love the cover of Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink. And I've had New Girl on my eReader for a long while ... just keep forgetting to get around to reading it ... happy Sunday.

  37. I haven't read BELLES yet! You got me really intrigued... :D

  38. Great haul! I want to read The Last Princess.
    Happy reading!
    My IMM

  39. Awesome haul, Mimi! The finished copy of Enchanted looks so pretty with the rest of your haul. I really want to read Belles. I'm sure I'll love it! And I'm equally excited to hear what you have to say about the sequel! Belles gives me such The OC-vibes. Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink looks pretty cute as well :D Hope you have an amazing week, Mimi!!!

  40. Oooooh, Mimi! I really hope you like New Girl. It was an odd book... it was fascinating... I disliked someone of the characters SO much, but I enjoyed it regardless? AND TOUCH OF POWER! I cannot even EXPLAIN how much I love this book. Maria V. Snyder is one of my absoltuely FAVORITE authors! I have NEVER heard of Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls, but the name alone is reason enough to check it out--awse!

  41. I'm very intrigued by the last princess I didn't know this one, but I can't wait to learn more about it. enjoy!

  42. Everyone's always raving about Touch Of Power so I can't wait till you review it. Will wait for you thoughts on The Last Princess as well. Sounds like an interesting one. I like the title anyway!

  43. I can't wait for your review of The Last Princess! I've been interested in that for a while. I MUST READ BELLES SOON! Especially since you're starting Winter White soon, thus you'll make me even MORE eager to read this series. It sounds like so much fun! <3

    YAY FOR YOUR FIRST MARIA V. SNYDER BOOK!!! I've only read Touch of Power and the Insiders series (everyone loves Study, so I NEED that soon), but I absolutely love her stuff. I hope you become a fan!

    ENJOY! <

  44. Oh you had an awesome book week! I'm really wanting Enchanted so hopefully my library has it in soon. I agree, I can never get tired of getting books!

  45. LOL, I was totally the same about the name in New Girl! I so wanted to know what it was. Then I barely noticed it was missing. x) Hope you enjoy it! And I absolutely loved Touch of Power. :D Hope you enjoy!

  46. So excited for The Last Princess and Enchanted. I have A Temptation of Angels coming, too! Can't wait for it to arrive!


Thanks so much for leaving your thoughts! I love hearing what you have to say, and I always try to comment on one of your blog posts in return! :)

It's really nice to meet you!
