Showcase Sunday: 27 May 2012


It's time to showcase the pretty books you've received or bought!









Compared to the flood of books last week *not that I'm complaining*, this week my mailbox has been relatively more peaceful. Instead, I couldn't resist buying several books with cover eye-candies. :)




Illuminate
This was on my Top Ten for 2012 list in January. Guess what I said then? ;) "Sounds like Ouran High School Host Club meet Another Faust!"  And we all know that with a spice of magic, romance and darkness, Illuminate promises and delivers!


Crave
I know, I know. This is the typical forbidden romance novel. But, just because it's clichéd, doesn't mean I can resist it's allure! *indignant*

"Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams..."

Sorry, but I just couldn't refrain myself from buying this after reading the blurb.

Who cares? I demand a good old romance with fizzling chemistry and Crave is my cure!


Tiger's Curse
I saw this quite some time ago, but I didn't think much of it. After some raving reviews, I'm going to take the leap-- into the world of hot Indian princes, ancient curses and forest magic! Aren't you excited? *squeals*


Harbinger
Frankly speaking, I didn't appreciate the cover design. Not at all. It turned me off at first. But, really, after reading an excerpt and the blurb, I think the cover doesn't do this book justice. Well, I'm going to! With a raving review, of course :)


For Review




This doesn't say much except that I have to get my butt down to reading this series soon! I've got this and the second book. Now, it's time for me to search for the first one!

Well, that's all I've got this week. My wallet is bleeding but my shelf is singing songs of joy!

What swag have you got this week? :)

  6. I haven't read any of these myself, but they look awesome! Especially Illuminate and Crave in my opinion. You'll have to let us know what you think! And I'm so jealous of The Goddess Legacy! I hear that's really good and even has some funny stuff in it. Enjoy!

    1. Rest assured that the book-buying spree satisfies a shopaholic book lover like me. But my wallet is feeling the exact opposite of bliss. :/ oh well, the pretty covers are absolutely worth it! :)

  12. Great books! I can see why you picked them. I haven't read any of them- but they are all on my list, except for Crave. Before reading your post I hadn't heard of Crave. Looks like you have some fun reading ahead of you. :)
