Showcase Sunday #22

Weekly meme hosted @ Books Biscuits and Tea

Good evening peeps! *yawns* Can you believe I just got out of bed?! But don't get me wrong, this morning I woke up at 6am to go to work and I just took a "little" nap as soon as I got home! This week has been a full one, I am finally starting to work and I just got my first employment contract - even if it lasts only for two months, because after I need to start school, again. But it's already something, isn't it?
Speaking of books, this week I just bought two books at the usual bookshop I always talk you about - the one that sells used books - and I found two awesome titles. Some of you may have heard that I loved the Hypnotist by Lars Kepler and, can you believe that I found the third book in the Joona Linna series? I thought it was a sign of destiny because I can swear that this book wasn't there the morning I looked at the shop windows and then, that afternoon, when my friend asked me to bring her there, it was there.. Just great! 
The other title I bought is from Philippa Gregory, The Other Boleyn Girl, the second book in the Tudor Court series - I had already bought the first book last week, do you remember? 
The other two titles I got are from my local library, Looking for Alaska by John Green and Red by Kerstin Gier.

And that's all for this week! Link me up your showcase!

  1. I didn't like Alaska that much; I found it the weakest of Green's books. I hope you like it more than I did ;)
    Lovely haul!

    1. Being sincere, I probably had too high expectations for this book and even if I did love the author's style, the story was in fact a little weak. The thing I loved were Miles' thoughts but actually there was not an eventful plot or a great finale - well, I have mixed feelings! ^^
