I’ve been easing up on the additions to my book collections because unless I quit my job and read for a living (anyone paying people to do that? I’m available.) I have no hope in hell of ever catching up and it’s a bit daunting at times. It doesn’t help that I have yet to get a handle on my library addiction either but I’m happy to say that I’ve stopped requesting ARCs for the most part so, progress. SO! This is my monthly Showcase Sunday showing off the new books I bought, won, got for review, got from the library, etc. I hope everyone is doing well and got lots of new book goodies too! Leave me a link to your post and I’ll be sure to stop by. 🙂
ONLY ONE! But I’m extremely excited for this one. The Last Policeman trilogy is about a detective that is still out solving crimes even though there’s an asteroid headed for earth. World of Trouble is the final installment and I can’t wait to see what happens.
See what I mean? Too many damn library books. But my excuse is my participation in Bookish Bingo which has been beyond freaking fun! For those of you that joined, how are your cards looking? I’ve been able to check off 7 squares for the month of April… only 2 months to go and 17 more squares to complete it! Clockwork Orange was also a buddy read with the lovely Christina.
Okay, I lied. This next one didn’t have anything to do with Bookish Bingo. I decided to give this series another try and holy crap I loved it. Can’t wait to make time in my reading schedule to finish the remaining books. They take a serious time commitment but even if you’re not a fan of fantasy (I am not typically) I still highly recommend this series!
I picked up two new audiobooks in the past month. One I was grateful to get from Christina (different Christina) over at Reader of Fictions. I won her Comment contest for March and I opted for Written in Red which will definitely be my next audio. The second is The Darwin Elevator which I hadn’t heard anything about but it’s blurbed by Kevin Hearne and it’s about ALIENS. Plus, Simon Vance narrates and he’s the man.
I also won a $25 for Christina (back to the first one, lol) @ Christina Reads YA from helping to celebrate her recent Blogoversary! I haven’t used it all yet but I’ll be using most of it for the new Gabaldon (btw, have you guys seen the new trailer? So. Excited.)
So I think that’s it! Big thanks to both Christina’s!! 😀
