The Sunday Post (#17) and Showcase Sunday (#3)
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren. They're a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, highlight our newest books and see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, or bought.

Books I added to my shelves:
From the library:
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich
Paper Towns by John Green
From a PR:
This is a coffee table book about the history of Centre Point, a massive building in London, on Oxford Street/Tottenham Court Road. The authors have picked a different subject for each "floor" (chapter), and explore that subject and what it was like at the time Centre Point was built.
The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence, published by Hodder, won through a Twitter competition run by @HodderFiction.
Red Winter by Dan Smith, published by Orion, through a competition run by Lindsay at The Little Reader Library. Thanks Lindsay!
