Showcase Sunday (4)


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 e-Readers each week.

It’s been a busy week at work so I did not have time to swing by bookshops until today. I bought two YA books I’ve set my eyes on long ago but because of availability and size reasons (I’ll explain in a few), I only bought them today.

Pardon the glare: GOLIATH by Scott Westerfeld and CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare. Finally, editions that will fit the rest. Both are third books in a trilogy, too!

First is CLOCKWORK PRINCESS, the third book in Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices series. I bought Clockwork Prince long ago and told myself I won’t read it until Princess comes out. Early last year, it did, and for a long time I did not buy it because the available size of the editions in my country are not the same one as Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince! Yes, for that shallow reason alone. [They wouldn’t look good together with one being taller, right? Hehe.] The hardback and large trade copy editions went for as cheap as 250 pesos (almost $5) but I didn’t buy, no matter how tempting [the size! the size!]. But today, I finally saw a copy the same size as the first two installments! Yay!

Second is GOLIATH, the third book in Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan trilogy. I featured Leviathan when I bought it last year and two months after that, I bought the second book, Behemoth. It took a while before I saw a copy of Goliath because it was always out of stock. I found a lone copy of it today and I snatched it immediately.

I have a hazy reading plan that does not include these (now complete) trilogy in my TBR pile. Because of this unplanned completion, I may bump them up soon. 🙂

For e-books downloaded to S. Eloise, here are the books I got for free from Amazon, thanks to Book Gorilla:
