Showcase Sunday #3

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Books, Biscuits, and Tea!

Books, Biscuits, and Tea just started this meme a few weeks ago, and I'm very excited to be participating!

I didn't have anything to showcase last week because I was super busy with work and by the time I got home, I usually fell right asleep! But over the past two weeks, I have gotten books... even though I'm technically on a book buying ban. :(

I bought Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I was trying to find a signed copy, but none of the places she was touring was very helpful in finding out how to get one. Then, a week after I got Insurgent from my local bookstore, Barnes and Noble in NY called saying they saved me a signed copy. I was like, really? You told me you didn't have one. It wasn't inscribed, but it was going to cost $3+ to ship, and I didn't think it was worth it to have two copies, even if one was signed. It's not that I wouldn't love a signed copy, but it's not the end of the world. I'm sure they'll have them eventually at V. Roth's local bookstore. My copy of Divergent isn't signed, so it would throw off the collection, anyways! haha

I also bought Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi from They were selling signed copies with 20% off, and shipping was only $.91, so the book came out to $13.91, which I consider a bargain, so I bought it! It shipped really quickly, and I got it about 4 days after I ordered it. I love how she signs every book with "Be extraordinary" with her name. It's a good book catchphrase for the story!

I hate saying I've been too busy to read, but it's true! That's why I haven't posted any reviews or been on here lately. Memorial Day Weekend was our big first weekend out here where I live, and we had a lot of preparation and anticipation. For the past 3 days, I've worked 8:30am - 10pm, so the end of the day usually means bed time. I'm hoping to get back into Pure by Julianna Baggott soon enough. I literally bring it everywhere with me so that if I get a spare minute, I can read it, but that hasn't happened!

Happy Reading!


  1. Insurgent! Yay! It's okay you didn't get a signed copy. Sometimes I protect my signed copies a little too much, like their fragile and may burn when in contact with air. So un-signed copies usually prove more useful for me. I can read them and not feel guilty about flipping a page, lol :) I still need to get a copy of Insurgent. And great bargain on Shatter Me. I thought Shatter Me was okay, but I think the sequel will be better. I hope you get more time to read. Busy months suck!!

  2. You know Mafi is coming out with a novella called Destroy Me and it's in Warner's perspective in October! I'm so excited!!! And yes, Unravel Me in February will probably be a lot better than Shatter Me, but I still did love Shatter Me. Love me some Warner!

  3. It was a shame that Insurgent wasn't as good as the first one, but I still liked it more than enough to want to read the last one ^^

    Happy reading!
