Showcase Sunday #7

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Books, Biscuits, and Tea, inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren. Its aim is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week.

I got some really good books this week, as well as... well, some not so good ones. Overall, I'm happy about everything that I got.

 The Iron King, by Julie Kagawa
The Iron Daughter, by Julie Kagawa
The Iron Knight, by Julie Kagawa

Finally - finally! - I own the entire Iron Fey series. I read this series last year on my e-reader, and I always wanted to have physical copies of it. There was a bookstore here with all the books in stock, and I just couldn't pass this opportunity. I'm re-reading The Iron Daughter right now, and boy, let me tell you, this series is as good as I remembered!

The Iron Legends, by Julie Kagawa
Foretold, edited by Carrie Ryan
Vanquished, by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié

Two anthologies that I've been looking forward to for months now. The Iron Legends was pure perfection, but Foretold was a complete disappointment, unfortunately. I hope Vanquished will be as good as I'm hoping. I'm not a big fan of this trilogy, but Crusade was fantastic, so fingers crossed that this one will be good!

Over You, by Emma McLaughlin
Heaven, by Alexandra Adornetto
White Cat, by Holly Black 

Over You sounds ridiculously cute, and I adore the cover. I really need some fluffly contemporary novel right now ^-^ I tried to read Heaven, since I enjoyed Halo and Hades, but I couldn't get past page 70. My taste in books must've changed a lot, because honestly, this book was awful. I've heard really good things about White Cat. Really hoping it'll live up to its hype!

So, that was all that I got this week. What about you guys? Tell me in the comments, or leave me a link to your post, and I'll check it out! :D


  1. I so need the Iron Fey series! They look amazing! :@ I hope you enjoy your other books - happy reading! :)

  4. Love the cover for Over You and the summary sounds so GOOD! Hope you enjoy it. :D

  5. WHITE CAT! YESSSSSS! Gosh, I LOVE that series! One of my all-time favorite for sure! :) I wasn't a huge fan of The Iron Fey Series, but I heard that The Lost Prince, which is the first in a spin-off series, was amazing, so it's a good idea to read them! I hope you enjoy all your books, Beatriz! :D

  6. I love the Iron Fey books as you know! I need to re-read them all one day. :) Can't wait to see what you think of Over You and White Cat. I really love the cover for WC. Great haul, Beatriz! :)

  7. I bought the Iron King a few months ago and I've heard such great stuff about so I'm excited to read it! :) Enjoy your new books!
