Showcase Sunday (2)
Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Vicky @ Books, Biscuits and Tea where you can showcase your newest books and book related swag for that week and share it with everyone.
I didn't expect to get any new books this week, but I popped into The Works and couldn't resist their 2 for £3 sale! I also got a new yoga book :)
Yoga to the Rescue Ageless Beauty is the second book by Amy Luwis. I love her first book (Yoga to the Rescue) and this is really similar. The illustrations are of normal women, and the book not only covers various yoga poses with a ton of information but it includes various routines as well. The routines are based on need/mood so you have joy, serenity, rage-a-holic and even supergirl :)
The Fifth Victim was a last minute "what else to fill the offer" pick. I've been in the mood for some crime lately so a book about a serial killer who kills in sets of five before disappearing sounds really creepy. It even has a psychic so it's not too far from my usual paranormal picks.
John Green is one of those authors I've heard a lot of great things about but never read so when I saw Looking for Alaska in the sale section for 50p I had to pick up a copy. I don't read a lot of contemporary books but I'm interested to see why he is such a well loved author so I'm hoping to read this soon.
Night School is a book I remember seeing the cover for but couldn't remember much about. The blurb is really vague so I decided to risk it and after checking online it appears that this is a mystery set in a boarding school.
Insatiable sounds awesome. I've loved Meg Cabot's writing since I first read some of her negotiator books when I was about 13/14 so I'm excited to read this. It's a retelling of Dracula (yay for books that work for my Classic Doubles challenge!) focusing on Mina Harker and it sounds awesome.
Last but by no means least is The Day Watch. It's the second in the Night Watch trilogy (the first has been on my TBR forever) and so far the last of the three made into some pretty awesome movies. I love the movies so I keep meaning to read the books. Maybe getting this will be the push I need.
So what have you got to showcase this week?
