Showcase Sunday: 17 June 2012


Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday 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. 

This is organized by Books, Biscuits & Tea.


Okay, this is going to be a cheat post because it's going to be really short. 

But, still, just because it's short doesn't mean you won't be able to see a Sel-trademarked post with amazing books galore!

So, stupid stupid me couldn't resist buying a book, and even with the mountainous pile of review copies in a corner, I went to the library. 

I know it's kind of dumb to visit the library in such a situation, but I did it anyway and came back with four books that I've been eyeing on Goodreads for quite some time :)


Snow White & the Huntsman (bought)
I watched the movie and was absolutely blown away by the stunning visuals. Unfortunately, there were some loose ends in the film which I hope the book will patch up. So, undeniably, I'm beyond excited at how the words will convey the adventure of Snow White and the very hot Huntsman *grins*

The Rest (from the library)
Well, hopefully I'll finish them before they're due. Expect some good reviews!

Just before I end, it's time for some last-minute advertising!

My Birthday giveaway is ending soon!

Drop by before it is too late and win some 16 amazing YA titles :D

Click here to go and I'll remember you forever. Really. 


Lots and lots of goofy smiles,
Sel

What's your swag this week? ;)

  7. I am the exact same way when I go to the library. I can't help but pick up a bunch of books, even though I have so many sitting at my house, waiting to be read. I have limited myself to 1 book a visit this summer. Let's see how that works. LOL Enjoy! :)

  12. This may seem a little stalkerish, and feel free to ignore me if you want to keep this private, but are you from Singapore??? I noticed a link to movie times on your sidebar. I'm new to this whole blogging thing but I'm so glad to have stumbled upon another Singaporean book blogger, even if I haven't lived there in years. :)

    Also, great haul! I haven't read any of those yet; am perpetually behind on my TBR.

    1. 1. Finally! Somebody who reads my sidebar links :D

      2. I am from Singapore ;)

      3. This is not stalkerish, it's called curiosity *grins* are you a Singaporean too? If you are, I'm going to give you a huge virtual hug! I'm as glad as you to stumble upon another SG blogger, trust me!

      *runs around in circles* this is so exciting!

  16. You got a ton of great books! And visiting the library/bookstore when you already have a pile you have to read & review, I know how you feel haha. ;)

    Oh my god, Sel! So I read that you watched and loved the Huntsman movie but thought there were some loose ends (like me). Well guess what! I found out that they are officially making a trilogy, so that's why they didn't finish everything up!!! :D So happy!

  17. Haha I see a lot of library stuff!(; our school's popular is pretty cool check it out soon yea :D haha but chill on the book buying yo. Otherwise popular might see you as a potential bookstore fella/fellow competitor and not sell stuff to you :p
