Sunday, August 25, 2013 books

Showcase Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits & Tea which was inspired by In My Mailbox from Kristie at The Story Siren.
It is a possibility for us to show what amazing books we got during the week.
I should be in Amsterdam right now and have an amazing time with some fellow bloggers but unfortunately I got sick on Friday and was not able to go. That's what I call timing. 

To make me feel a little bit better I went book shopping yesterday and got some books I really wanted. 

The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud
The Golem's Eye by Jonathan Stroud
Ptolemy's Gate by Jonathan Stroud

 One of my students recommended the Bartimaeus series to me and I read the first one in German this week. I loved it so much that I bought all books in the series in English as soon as I saw them in the shop. 

It Had To Be You by Jill Shalvis
I love Jill Shalvis' books, own the first six and had to buy the seventh even though it will take some time till I will read it.

As a huge Terry Pratchett Discoworld fan I had to have this one. 

The Land of the Stories
The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer 
The second book in the Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer. I really enjoyed the first book and as soon as the second was out I went and bought it. It was the last one in the shop.


  1. So sad you couldn't be there :( I hope your book shopping cheered you up!

  2. Sorry you couldn't make it to Amsterdam, but hopefully the books make up a little bit for it. I recently read The Enchantress Returns and enjoyed it, I hope you do too.

    Here's my round-up of the week.


  3. Awww sad you culdn't go, it looked like a lot of fun. Book shopping is a good cure!

  4. I'm so sad you couldn't make it, but I hope the books make you feel a bit better!
