Showcase Sunday #3

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. :)

The Blessed by Tonya Hurley
Doesn't this one look so creepy-cool? I'm a sucker for stories about stories about sisters, and this one has three of them. That counts for a triple whammy, right? ;)

Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh
Oh my gosh!!! Isn't it beautiful?? When this one arrived in the mail, I literally gave a thousand-amped squeal because Nevermore was one of my favourite reads of 2010, and this was one of my most anticipated of 2012! I can't wait to start it tonight!

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce
I have this HUGE love for Jackson Pearce because no matter what she writes, it's always absolutely beautiful and creative. This one's about the sea creatures we know and love, but I'm postive she'll make it her own. :)

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
I already read and reviewed this book last week, and it was SO SO good! People are saying it was a lot like Dexter (which I don't know), but I DO know Criminal Minds, and if you love that show like I do, then you'll love this for sure! ;)


Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I won these from Jennifer L. Armentrout, and she was awesome enough to sign them both to me too! Both of these books (and everything else JLA writes) are five star reads for me, so it made me happy to have signed finished copies next to my ARCs!


Bewitching by Alex Flinn
Gilt by Katherine Longshore

Getting books that I'm always excited about is SO bad for summative month at school, but I wouldn't trade them in for the world! Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster Canada, Hachette Book Group Canada, and Jennifer L. Armentrout for the beautiful books!

And I couldn't be at BEA this year because of school and me being Canadian and all, but I hope everyone who did go had a blast! I would love to hear all about your epic adventures. Maybe we can meet up next year? ;)




  1. Oh my God, you're so lucky to have the JLA books! I've been DYING to get my hands on them and still haven't gotten them yet. GAH!

  2. Mimi, gorgeous book haul as usual!!! I hope you have a nice time reading all these bookish delights, especially The Blessed! It does look very creepy...

  3. Don't know what Blessed is about, but I have to admit the cover looks intriguing :) I'll be waiting to read you review! And wow, Nevermore! Yet another series I plan to read this summer.

    I still have to read something by Jackson Pearce, but I hope to do so soon. I'm having mixed feelings with Half-Blood and Pure, not sure if I'll read them T_T And, yay! Gilt! I hope you can read it and like it as much as I did. You'll see, it's something else entirely. Oh, and Bewitching is also on my wishlist :D

    Good luck on all your end-of-school work! Don't worry, you'll do just fine <3

  4. I still want to get my hands on the JLA books! Everyone seems to love them! Hope you enjoy your books since you've got such an awesome haul!

    Here's my Showcase Sunday

  5. Wow you got so many great books! I feel like I'm the only person who hasn't read Half Blood but Gilt looks great! Have fun reading!

  6. Oooh nice haul! You are so lucky to have won Half-Blood and Pure! And to have gotten an ARC of The Blessed. So jelous! I hope you enjoy your fantastic books!! :)

    My book haul for the week

  8. I'm so excited to see you have Enshadowed! I loved Nevermore and can't wait for you to tell me how amazing the sequel is. ;) And I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on The Blessed too. I got that a couple of weeks ago and haven't really been able to get into it yet. I hope you have better luck! :P

  9. That Blessed cover is so creepy that it is cool! Haha, my weird tastes. School's starting for me too but what the heck, books are educational distractions! Haha.

    Nice haul, Mimi :D

  10. Oh my gosh you got Enshadowed Mimi! I'm absolutely dying for that one, Nevermore was a favorite of mine the year before last and I feel like I've been waiting forever for this one! Blessed definitely looks creepy but oh-so interesting, and I'm a complete Jackson Pearce fangirl so I can't wait for Fathomless:) Awesome group this week!

  11. OMG you got Enshadowed you're so lucky :D ! I read Nevermore last year and I loved it. I already pre-ordered a copy of this second book and I can't wait to read it.
    Oooooh and i'm jealous you got the two first books in the covenant series signed by the author :p that is awesome ! I love this series and I can't wait to read Deity :). I don't know if you've read her other series Lux but it's awesome as well !
    Happy reading !

  12. You lucky thing! I desperately want Enshadowed and Fathomless . . . now I'm really jealous of you. haha. Anyway great books! Again you're lucky! :)

  13. Congrats on getting so many books! I absolutely love your sunday Showcase picture! (can i use it next week and give design credit to you) I can't wait for Enshadowed to finally come out this summer! Blessed has one of the scariest covers ever; i also like stories with sisters! Good luck on your exams Mimi!

  14. The Blessed does look creepy cool! I am curious about those Armentrout books but I feel that it's too young for me but we'll see, book one of the series is on sale in Amazon so I might check it out.

  29. I really do love the Showcase Sunday picture-it's so pretty!

    I'll be eagerly awaiting your review of Enshadowed-I mostly enjoyed the first one but thought it was a little long so I hope this one is more tightly paced.

  30. *woooo* Epic haul of books Mimi! Congrats on the signed HB and Pure <33 JLA is amaaazing! I LOVE Criminal Minds too and thats why I'm DYING to read I Hunt Killers. You're right about Blessed.

    Jessirae @ Words, Pages, and Books
    My Book Haul

  31. Congratulations to your win, Mimi!! I need to read Pure ASAP! And yay on I Hunt Killers, which I know you liked and I can't wait to read now. :D As a Criminal Minds fan, I'm super intrigued! I've only watched a few Dexter episode's but they're definitely not bad! Hope you enjoy your new books. :D

  32. Enshadowed!!! I can't wait to read that one. I loved Nevermore and I can't wait to see what happens. That was such a cliffhanger ending. I still need to read Half-Blood and Pure. Can you believe I haven't. I have had Half-Blood on my kindle forever. I've heard such amazing things about it. I know you loved I Hunt Killers so I am really excited about reading it. Sounds like something I will love since I love Dexter and serial killer books. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  33. You got Enshadowed!! That is awesome! I just finished Nevemore this week (review up soon) and it was just amazing! Gah, such great stuff. :)

    Anyway, looks like you had a wonderful week of books, so yay for that! I really want to read I Hunt Killers. I haven't seen Dexter (though I want to watch it/and read the book) but I LOVE Criminal Minds as well.


  34. Ahh, HALF-BLOOD and PURE! I've read ARCs of each one, but I did giveaways of them and so I actually don't own finished copies. I'd love to, one day, since like you, I love JLA's books.

    BLESSED DOES look super-creepy-good. And while GILT wasn't my favorite book, it was very good, so I really hope you love it!

    My Once Upon a Book Haul

  35. WOW! you have Enshadowed! I want that book! =)

    So lucky that you won those JLA books, I heard amazing things about her books. Too bad I can't find her books in my local bookstore...

    All of your books Mimi is just awesome! have fun reading them all =)

    here's mine:

  36. The cover for The Blessed looks so eerie. I actually really like it !
    Is it bad that I still haven't read Nevermore although I've heard fabulous things about it ?

    Yeah for The Covenant series ! :D The covers are absolutely gorgeous!

    I have I Hunt Killers, but I haven't read it yet. I really need to get to it soon.

    I hope you enjoy all your book, Mimi ! :)
    Happy reading and have a great week ! <3

  37. OMG the movie sounds so good :D ! Ok I'll come find you when I'll read that line ;). I can't wait to read the book and see the movie after.
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment Mimi <3

  38. You got the awesome-est books this week! Especially from JLA! Awesome haul! :D

    Drop by my Showcase Sunday?

  39. Ahhh MIMI! YOU WON SIGNED COPIES OF HALF-BLOOD AND PURE?!?!? SOOO LUCKY! The Blessed sounds AMAZING - but is it just me, or does the girl on the cover look a little...freaky? Ooohh GILT! I love ANYTHING to do with the Tudors (wait...I THINK that's what Gilt is about..right?) ANYWAY, I think I've EVERY Tudor-related book from my school library...sooo I'm really looking forward to reading Gilt :) I Hunt Killers looks CREEPY! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much :) It's a little terrifying for me, but I'm still excited to read it :) Ohh...and don't kill me, but I haven't read ANYTHING by Jackson Pierce *hides* I DO plan to though :DD hehee

  40. Oh, you LUCKY, LUCKY girl!!! You've got some raally nice books here! I especially like the Armentrout books. That's a series I'm dying to get started on!! Thanks for sharing your super cool haul with us!! : )

  41. HOOOOOOLY CRAP ENSHADOWED! Oh my gosh that's beyond awesome!! I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on a copy! :) Enjoy.

    Here's what I got!

  42. The Blessed looks so creepy!! I'd totally turn the cover face down at night before I go to sleep haha. It sounds so good though, I can't wait to hear what you think!

    Ahhhhhh and you got Enshadowed! It feels like forever ago I read Nevermore (when in truth, I think it was only early last year) but the sequel! Finally! I hope you love it! Varen <3

    I SO want to read I Hunt Killers, especially after your freaking AMAZING review. Ugh, you're a money vampire. My bank account hates what you're doing to it :P

    I hope Gilt is amazing - I've been so feeling the historical vibe lately and a blogger friend LOVED this!

    ENJOY, MIMI! <3

  43. I'M DYING TO READ NEVERMORE!! No, seriously, every single time I see a cover or review or comment about the series I star to flip out. I'm just going to buy it, ok? Because no matter how much Poe I read, I never get enough.

    Blessed - ummm that cover scares me. Just sayin'.

    And Bewtiching, Gilt, Half-Blood, I Hunt Killers - man those all look GREAT!! :D Great showcase, darling!! :D <3

    Sierra @ Yearning to Read

    1. Totally butting in here, but yes. YES. Go read Nevermore!

      & yay, another Poe fan! :) He's the reason my career is what it is.

  44. AMAZING mailbox, Mimi! I'm so excited to read JEA's Half-Blood books, and GILT LOOKS AMAZING! Can't wait for your reviews, lovely! ♥♥♥

  45. I absolutely love the cover for Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh!!!
