Showcase Sunday (2) ~ Book Fair!

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
It's been so long since I did one of these posts! It's not that I didn't buy books in so long. It was just a few books here, a few books there so I never felt like I should do a haul post for only a couple of books.

Well, there was a small book fair here and I found a really nice stall of old books so I bought 6. Here are my buys this week:

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

I honestly have no idea what this book is about. But I've heard so much that I feel like I need to read this too...

The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

Again, a book everyone loves but I haven't read yet. So I bought it... Also, I love this cover!

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

I've wanted to read this book from the day I saw the pilot episode of Supernatural. I don't know if there is a connection or not but this is supposed to be a mystery classic so why not give it a try?

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan

With the new Percy Jackson movie coming out, every bookstore that I visit, the people there try to persuade me to buy these books. So I finally did! Yaay! But I'm not going to start this series until I finish the Harry Potter series.

One Day by David Nicholls

I've seen the movie and I liked it so I wanted to read the book too.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith

This is probably my favorite book out of the ones that I've bought and I started reading it as soon as I got into the car. It's good so far. I love Pride & Prejudice, something about it feels like home (though I'm no where near English nor have I ever been to England).  I haven't really read any zombie books so I'm really looking forward to this. I'm a few pages in and I'm loving it so far. Plus I'm really enjoying the illustrations!

And that's the list of books I got this week. What books did you get recently?


  1. Fabulous books!

    The Woman in White is excellent, and arguably one of the first popular mystery novels written. Some of it is in the form of letters, I seem to recall. I loved it! <3

    1. Really? I'm looking forward to reading it now. :)
      Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! :D

  2. You have some amazing books there. The Time Travelers Wife made me cry, and The Catcher in the Rye and The Lightning Thief are two of my favorite books. I hope you enjoy them, happy reading!

    1. I hope I enjoy them too! Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting :D

  3. I really liked The Time Traveler's Wife. Much more than the movie. I hope you end up enjoying it!
