Lots of books I'm excited about this week! I received Confessions of a Chelsea Boy (review here), Spencer Matthew's autobiography, Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma and Crash into You by Katie McGarry for review. Dare You To wasn't as good as Pushing the Limits but I'm still really excited to read Crash into You. I'm a massive fan of the British reality TV show Made in Chelsea, so I couldn't wait to read the autobiography of it's lead playboy, Spencer Matthews. It wasn't as good a read as I hoped but it was still really interesting to read all about his life so I'd recommend it to all fans of MIC. I've just started reading Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma and so far so good. I'm not really sure what it's about to be honest but it seems like there's a big mystery in it and I can't wait to find out what it is! Now that I've got Dance with Dragons I, I'm one step closer to owning all the current books in the Game of Thrones series. It already takes up an entire row on my bookshelf - it's that long! Can't wait to read this series but it'll probably be a while before I start it because I'll need a lot of time to get through these fat books. 

This could be my last Showcase Sunday for a while as I'm heading off to university next Sunday and I'm not sure how much time I'll have for reading and blogging as I settle down. *sadface* As a mini sorry-in-advance I'm holding a giveaway so you can win a book of your choice from TBD worth up to £8/$12 - enter via rafflecopter below :D

  3. I still haven't read Dare You To. I loved Pushing the Limits but when I started hearing about the second book i got a bit put off...think I'll wait it out and not rush for the new one.

  8. I've got all bar one of the A Song of Ice and Fire books, and have only read two. I really need to get moving with them!

    Great haul - I've never seen Made in Chelsea, but that's because I know I'd get addicted if I started watching.

    Here's my round-up of the week.

  13. I would probably pick George R.R. Martin's new book " A Dance With Dragons" because I am currently reading the A Song Of Ice and Fire series. But I do also want the new George D. Shuman novel "Rattleman" because I ahve read all of his other novels. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  22. I just bought the first Game of Thrones book and it is a FAT book :) My Harry Potter, Percy Jackson & Twilight collection takes up one row of my bookshelf (but that's mainly because my shelf is quite long)!

    Have fun in university, Laura ;) I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

    1. IKR! The second one is ever bigger aha .. I have a tall and skinny bookshelf so it's pretty much one series per shelf.. I've officially run out of space and I've been begging my mum for a bigger bookshelf but she hasn't budged (yet!)

      Thanks so much :)

    1. I loved the first book, but the second one wasn't quite so good so I'm slightly nervous about reading Crash into You. Been reading some glowing reviews today though so it should be good! Thanks for stopping by :)
