Showcase Sunday 26. Bargain books.


I feel good, because I haven't requested any books from Netgalley! I'm currently trying to read all the e-ARCS I have and I want to continue reading my own TBR-pile. I couldn't resist buying these books though, because of their bargain prices.

The Stepsister Scheme (Princess, #1)The Mermaid's Madness (Princess, #2)Red Hood's Revenge (Princess, #3)The Snow Queen's Shadow (Princess, #4)

  1. Graceling and Unwind both look really good. I totally understand about not requesting more e-galleys from Netgalley. I'm trying not to as well but I just can't stop myself! ;-) Enjoy your new books!

  8. I've got GRACELING waiting right on my shelf, too! I'm kind of hesitant of starting it, since it's been getting so much gushing reviews from readers, so I guess I'm afraid that I'll set my expectations too high and I'll end up disappointed. :/ Also - UNWIND! I haven't read it yet, so I can't wait to hear what you think. :)

    Have a lovely week, Mel!

  10. Lucky for me, I haven't quite figured out Netgalley which I usually think is a good thing because I don't go crazy requesting books. Graceling is also on my never ending TBR list. And, I really like the covers on Jim C. Hines's books.

  12. Yay for bargain books! I've had to ban myself from Netgalley, because I end up requesting just about everything and then I have no interest in reading most of these books... so no Netgalley for me until I finish what I requested already. I really want to read Graceling and Unwind, I have both of them, but I just haven't had time to read them. They sound good though. :)

  13. Good job on not requesting any books! I gave it up for Lent but now that's over so I just requested a whole bunch. Graceling is amazing so I hope you can fit it in soon! I also think the Hines books look right up your alley so I hope they're as good as they look.

  15. Well done on not requesting anything from Netgalley - great self-control! I adored Graceling when I read it and the Jim C Hines books look so cool!

  19. I think I totally need to stop requesting books from NetGalley too, I have so many to get through! I've had my eye on Unwind for sometime so I can't wait to see how you get on with it! I hope you enjoy all your reads Mel! :)

  20. I ma very jealous of your Jim C.Hines pile of books, Mel! had the first one one my wishlist for absolute ages! :) Happy Easter break and hope you enjoy all your reads!

  21. Some of my friends have started Kristin Cashore series and they told me it's brilliant! Nevertheless, I still haven't pick that series up, and I hope to do it soon.

    I know, Netgalley is a drug, isn't it?! I have a huge to read pile and so many review requests, but I still continue to request e-ARCs nonetheless.. I guess I will have to stop, just as you did! ^^

    Happy reading!

  22. Ah NetGalley - I gave it up for about 6 months last year and then fell back off the wagon when a few books I was hugely excited about came up.

    Enjoy your books and have a great week :-D

  23. Oooh, Mel, I really can't wait to see what you think of Unwind and Graceling! Both have been on my TBR FOR-E-VER and sound amazing ;) But somehow, I haven't picked them up yet...

  25. I LOVED Graceling. I have an inkling that you will love it too :) I also really liked Unwind but the premise is a bit unsettling. I can't wait to see what you think! :)
