Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea. It aims 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.
It’s a happy time for Fully Booked frequenters like yours truly this week because of its marked down books in almost all of its branches. Their branch in Bonifacio High Street is also celebrating its 6th anniversary, so there are tables of books for as low as P50, and the rest of the items are 20% off. Yesterday, we also had our monthly book club session so that also meant more books to add to my pile. 😉
Here’s what I got for myself this week:
THE BRONZE HORSEMAN and TATIANA & ALEXANDER are from Gabi, as she promised to lend me these two when, a few months back, I casually mentioned I was in search of a great Russian romance story. These books came highly recommended, adding I will be a crying mess afterwards, and that, “It will be a cryfest like you’ve never cryfested before.” Hahaha 🙂 Let’s see, let’s see. They’re chunky books and you know how I struggle with chunksters! So I promise to conquer these two soon. I like crying over a great romance story so that should get me through.
LEVIATHAN and PATIENT ZERO I bought in Fully Booked for 20% off. I couldn’t wait for the upcoming book sale season where they will still be 20% off anyway. I’ve been eyeing Leviathan long ago, and Patient Zero, well let’s just say the zombie apocalypse theme won me over. I only tried Maberry’s Rot & Ruin zombie YA series (not even done with it yet), but so far, I like how he writes his zombies and other accessory characters. I may even finish Patient Zero earlier than my current reads (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN included, I have my ‘I like morbid violence’ moments, but cannot really sustain it, oh well).
I could say these acquisitions are pretty conservative considering there’s a very generous book sale going on. Sometimes this makes me nervous because I may have to make up for it soon. LOL.
What books did you get the past week?
