Sunday Showcase!

It's time for Sunday Showcase!  The time of week where I link up with Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea to list out all the books that managed to land in my lap this week!  It's always a little horrifying to realize how many I managed to find.  

Actual Books:

The Cadaver Game by Kate Ellis - about 100 years ago I discovered a Kate Ellis book in a used bookstore, loved it and then could never find another book by her.  Thinks to paperbackswap I now own 2 more.  This was the 2nd one and I can't wait to read it!

I have 2 more actual books on their way so they'll be in next weeks list.


Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott
This was my favorite Alcott when I was a little girl and I discovered that not only was it available on Kindle but it was free!  Then I kind of went on an Alcott binge.  I also ordered:

Rose in Bloom - the sequel
An Old Fashioned Girl
Jo's Boys
Little Men


Then I got a few approvals from Netgalley that I'm really excited about.

The Word Exchange: A Novel by Alena Graedon - this was an invite but it looks really interesting.

Chateau of Secrets by Melanie Dobson - French Resistance, Granddaughter going to uncover her grandmother's secrets at an abandoned chateau 70 years later.  Seriously this should have just had my name on it.

Louisa Catherine: The Other Mrs. Adams by Margery M. Heffron - a biography about the wife of John Quincy Adams - the first (maybe only?) first lady to be born outside the U.S. I'm really looking forward to this one.

At Home with Modern June by Kelly McCants - One of the most comprehensive sewing projects I've ever come across.  Makes me want to learn how to sew.

Secrets of the Lighthouse by Santa Montefiore - A woman goes to Ireland to discover her families' past and figure herself.  There's a castle with a ghost.  I literally squealed out loud when this approval came through.


  1. I hope you enjoy all your new reads, I particularly like the sound of The Word Exchange.

    My Showcase Sunday:

    P.S. You have the best blog name ever!

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping The Word Exchange will be good. I've had really good luck with invite books so far.

  2. Ahh this is the second blog I've seen The World Exchange on! It looks like such a good book, I'm adding it to my wishlist right now! Hope it's a good one and that you enjoy all the rest of your books :)
