Showcase Sunday #17

Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week.

Welcome back everyone to this week's Showcase Sunday post. Before I move on to the books I got let me tell you that this week was (and will be until Tuesday) the most exhausting time of my life. I spend all my day in Uni working on a paper I have to submit tomorrow and I have no time for anything else. But today I decided to take half the day off, since it's Sunday and all, and I am currently catching up with my reading and a few tv shows I missed during the week. I can't wait for Tuseday. Tomorrow will be the most exhausting and stressful days of my life, so can't I just skip the day?

Anyways, now about the books.

Physical Books
I got the three last books in the Percy Jackson series!!! I loved the first two and can't wait to read the rest and then move on to the spin-off series. Percy Jackson is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite series.

Trapped: I found this one while browsing through Amazon's new Countdown Deals. Countdown Deals is a new feature on Amazon that offers low prises in selected kindle books for a specific time frame. In case you want to check it out click here. A couple of books by Jack Kilborn (a.k.a J.A. Konrath) were on that list and I checked the author and his book on goodreads and honestly, I am very excited to give him a try. Trapped seems so creepy and mysterious. And the first 5 books by Jack Kilborn can be read in any order and then the sixth one, Haunted House, brings characters from all previous books together. That's an awesome idea. If I enjoy Trapped I am definitely picking up the rest of the books.

That was all for me. What did you get this last week? Leave me links to your new book hauls in the comments and I'll make sure to drop by for a visit.
