Showcase Sunday #24

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicki at Books, Biscuits and Tea. Its aim is to showcase 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 this week.

Shades of Milk and Honey (Glamourist Histories, #1) by Mary Robinette Kowal  
I heard this referred to as Jane Austen with magic. Enough said, am I right?
Shadow Scale (Seraphina, #2) by Rachel Hartman
So I mentioned that I received an eARC of this in my last Showcase Sunday, but I couldn't resist buying a pretty finished copy as well.
Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol
Read for my YA Lit class. This reaffirmed my love of graphic novels.  
BoxersSaints by Gene Luen Yang
Read for my YA Lit class. So, so good. I need to read more Yang stat.  
Texts from Jane Eyre by Mallory Ortberg
Very funny! Well, those stories/authors I was actually familiar with. The Little Women one was priceless.  
The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain by Peter Sis
Read for my YA Lit class. Not much to say about this. An important story, but it is a picture book for teens told in a weird, cartoony style.  
The Invention of Hugo Cabaret by Brian Selznick
Read for my YA Lit class. An interesting combination of pictures and text, but ultimately not for me.  
The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of Imperial Russia by Candace Fleming
And my interest in the Romanov family has been reignited. Overall, I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook.
Until We Meet Again (Bluford High, #7) by Anne Schraff
To read for my YA Lit class. I'm pretty sure this is an example of hi/lo fiction (high interest, low reading level).
What books have you recently acquired?

Amanda loves few things better than sitting down with a cup of tea and a book. She frequently stays up far too late, telling herself she just needs to finish one more page. When she's not wrapped up in the stories of others, Amanda works as a children's librarian in a public library.

  1. You have YA Lit class? That's so beyond neat! Shades of Milk and Honey has looked mighty interesting to me too but I have yet to pick up a copy. Looking forward to reading your thoughts! :) Happy Reading!
