Showcase Sunday #8

Showcase Sunday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Vicky at the Books, Biscuits and Tea blog. It is a meme inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren. The goal of this meme is for us bookish peeps to showcase & highlight the books that we have either bought, borrowed, won, downloaded, or received for review the past week :)


1. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly - paperback edition

2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Sidenote: I have actually read both of these already and both are really good. Revolution is a profound YA novel, that is extremely well-written and unique in it's plot-line. I own the hardcover of it but wanted to get the new paperback with the new cover (which I love) and because the hardcover is just a bit too big to carry around. And well, what can I say about Pride and Prejudice. Not only do I love the book, but I love the 2005 film and the BBC mini series as well. Pride and Prejudice is timeless.

What book loveliness did you receive this week? :)


  1. Hi Jennifer

    I'm hoping that Revolution is released for Kindle in the UK, but it's been a while since it was released.

    Ah well, enjoy your reads.

  2. I love Pride and Prejudice :) My favourite Jane Austen is actually Persuasion and this week I'm reading a YA novel inspired by it - For Darkness Shows the Stars.
    Thanks for stopping by YA's the Word

  3. Pride and Prejudice definitely is timeless...and I'll have to look into Revolution!

  4. Pride and Prejudice is an all-time favorite. My Austin paperback collection is back home in Alaska with most my other books. :( But I was happy to score the complete works of Austin FREE on Kindle so I have them near at hand until I settle down somewhere long enough to have my mini library mailed.

  5. Oh Pride and Prejudice sure is timeless! I haven't come around to read it yet, though, but I will.
    Thanks for adding my button to you list *gives bear hug*, but I'm afraid you have to redo it coz the link changed. Sorry about that.
    *still bear hugs*won't let go for a week* ^.^

  6. I haven't read Pride & Prejudice but I do love the BBC miniseries! Revolution was amazing--I'm glad you enjoyed it, too!

  7. Great books but I haven't read Pride and Prejudice but I have watched the film and the series. Hope you enjoy your new books and thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  8. Awesome! Revolution sounds unique! I haven't heard of it but I like the cover! Enjoy :-)


  9. Interesting books you have there! I can't wait to see what you think of them.
    Happy Reading,

  10. REVOLUTION looks great! Believe or not, I haven't read PRIDE & PREJUDICE, though it's supposed to be really good. :P

  11. Ohh, pretty covers :D Lots of awesome. :) I'm glad you loved them both ;) I have never actually read or seen Pride and Prejudice.. But that is because I know some things about it, and at the moment I hate so many things that I know are in it :p Hih. Maybe when I get older. :) Anyway, have an awesome weeK! :D
    Thank you for commenting on my mailbox. <3

  12. Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books too! I just watched the 2006 movie and I thought they did a great job at bringing it to the big scene. :)
    I haven't read Revolution, but it sounds very profound.
    Happy reading !

  13. Oh, I LOVE Pride and Prejudice! Both the book and the film - and the soundtrack! They're fantastic :)

    I'll have to check out the other book because I haven't heard about it yet but it looks really good! I hope you'll enjoy both of them. xxx

  14. My sister has Revolution. I don't believe she's read it yet, but she's excited too...she loves history so it seems right up her alley.
