Showcase Sunday 31. Maria Snyder haul.


This secondehand bookshop is very bad for my wallet and space, but I found some great things this week. I'm now having true bookworm problems: I have no idea where to put them! I'm now making stacks on top of my clothing closet, because my bookshelves are full. Are you guys interested in things like: a book tour? Or pictures from my shelves?

After reading this review from Books of Amber I was interested in the book. I also want to read it before I see the movie, so when I found a copy for 2 euro I couldn't resist it: Beautiful creatures by Garcia & Stohl. I found a cheap copy from Silence a while ago and now I stumbled on the first book: Hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. The interesting promise and the lovely cover made me buy Malinda Lo - Ash.
Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)Ash

And I keep hearing awesome things about Maria Snyder and her Study series, so when I found them for a good price, I decided to pick them up. I always love a good High fantasy series.

Poison Study (Study, #1)Magic Study (Study, #2)Fire Study (Study, #3)

That's it for this week guys. Show me your haul!

  10. Great haul! Ash looks really good! I actually tried reading Beautiful Creatures once but never finished it... I didn't like the pacing at all! It was just too slow for me, unfortunately! :(

  11. I feel I need to read Maria Snyder too. I think I might have one of her books lurking on my Kindle.

  16. Great books! I'm currently reading Fire Study the third book in the Study series. It is really an amazing YA fantasy series, definitely going on my favourites list! She's also now one of my favourite authors, you should check out her newest books Touch of Power and Scent of Magic as they were amazing! Enjoy :)

  22. I bought Beautiful Creatures a while back, but have yet to read it. I need to get it done so I can see the movie! I also want to read the Study series, and the Hush, Hush series, but have not gotten to it yet. So many books so very little space and time! I hope you enjoy your new books!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the Hush, Hush series so far it's so good! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week!

  24. Hush, Hush is really good! The second ones is pretty good, and the third one is okay, but I wasn't a huge fan of the end book. Maybe it was just me though. Hush, Hush was the best one, in my opinion. I need to read the Beautiful Creatures series! All of them are in the public library near me - maybe I should take a trip :D

    Enjoy all of your lovelies! <3

    Check out my STS post!

  27. I hope you like Beautiful Creatures and Hush, Hush! I really liked both of those, yet I have not finished either series yet. O.O Soon, I hope! :)

  28. I wasn't that big of a fan of Beautiful Creatures, but I've heard great things about Maria V. Snyder. Great haul this week! Happy reading :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've heard awesome things about the Study books as well. Hope they live up to your expectations!

  30. I've also heard that Snyder's Study series is great. I liked Hush Hush. It's not perfect, but it was a fun read. I love the cover, too :) Happy reading :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Poison Study is one of my favorite books of all time-I didn't think the sequels were quite as good but they're worth a read at least once. Meanwhile I give my favorite chapters of Poison Study a read every couple of months...

  33. Beautiful Creatures was better than I expected! I hope you enjoy it, Mel. :) And I've been hearing so many contradicting things about the Hush Hush series that I don't think I'm going to be picking it up anytime soon! Nevertheless, I hope it works out for you. Wonderful haul, and have a fab week, darling!

  34. I absolutely LOVED Maria V. Snyder's Study series!! Trust me, you will definitely enjoy those books! Thanks so much for stopping by my STS. : )

  35. I've heard great things about MVS's books as well. Hush Hush is kinda my guilty pleasure. I'm not supposed to love it so much, but I do. The last book was brilliant! I didn't give a lot about Beautiful Creatures though. For me the sequel was so bad, but the third and the fourth book were very, very good. It's a different exciting world and I liked it, but I wasn't crazy about Ethan's POV since he was so whiny and clueless.

  36. Oh gosh, I love the Study series. It is one of my faves and I hope you love it. Bad-ass! Happy reading, Mel!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really loved Ash, I loved that it wasn't a typical romance story and had more depth to it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. wow these are AWESOME books! Hope you end up enjoying them all! will be looking forward to your review!

  44. OMFG MEL I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE THE STUDY SERIES UP THERE!!! I still need to read Fire Study (and I have this on my shelf so shame on me) but I really like Poison Study and Magic Study! I'm crossing my fingers that you feel the same! I also liked Beautiful Creatures, but Beautiful Madness was a little frustrating. Enough ranting.. ENJOY YOUR BOOKS :D :D

Ahhhh The Study Series *drools* I've only managed to get a hold of book 1 myself (still haven't read it yet) but it's a series I am beyond eager to get into - like you I've heard TONS of praise for the series :D Beautiful Creatures is another one I need to read! Fabulous haul, wow ♥ I hope you enjoy all of these & congrats!!
