Showcase Sunday #3

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea. It is an opportunity to show off the books you have recently acquired. Whether it was purchased, gifted, borrowed or sent for review, you can display it here.

Books for review:

 Come to the Edge by Joanna Kavenna
In Her Shadow by Louise Douglas
The Devil's Cave by Martin Walker

Books purchased:

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

Yes, I purchased the entire collection of this series. I had read books 1-9 when I was 10 or 11 but lost/sold/gave away the books (why??). I had a sudden urge to find out the ending once and for all so I decided to see if I could find a cheap set of these books. I found a second hand set on eBay for under €50 (inc. s&h charges) which was great! I am beginning the series all over again and so far I have completed The Bad Beginning. I had forgotten how completely amazing this series is. Despite the fact it is aimed an age group way below my age, I still love and enjoy this series. 

Also, sorry for the lack of comments back and/or failing to comment on your MM, TT or SS. I have been really busy with personal things this month. I'll try and be more active from now.


  1. I hope you'll love Come to the Edge just as much as I did! :)

    1. I hope so also, I'm excited to read it. :)

  2. I also have the same situation with ASOUI! I can't wait to have it completed and read it all the way through :)

    Here is my weekly round-up post

  4. Great books this week! I read a few of the Series of Unfortunate Events books when I was younger but never reached the end books so I hope you enjoy them and I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of them! they're just so strange and creepy but so good!
    Enjoy your books! :)

    1. Yeah, they're creepy but awesome. I will probably be doing an overall review of them once I finish the series. :) Thanks!

  5. I hope you enjoy your Series of Unfortunate events :D

  6. I never read A Series of Unfortunate Events, but I did like the movie. :)

    Happy reading!

  7. I have only read the first three Unfortunate Events books so far. My daughter loves them and I think has loaned all of our copies out to her friends at some time. I'll get around to reading the rest of the series at some point.

    I'm not sure if you accept awards or not, but I nominated you for one today:
