My Book Haul / Showcase Sundays

This is Books, Biscuits and Tea's Showcase Sunday where I share my lovely book hauls each week. Have a look back at Vicki's link up to see what everyone is up too!

It was another icy week in London with the snow from last week causing all-sorts of traffic and commuting hassles. Added to which I was struck by a cold at the start of week so my reading suffered as I just wanted to sit on the train and focus on making sure my nose didn't drip at all. As a result I only finished one book - Changeling by Philippa Gregory at the start of the week and am only half through Pantomime by Laura Lam at the moment. Luckily it was a slow week on the book front as well and I only received one from Netgalley!

Devil May Care - Patricia Eimer
Publisher: Entangled Select
Weddings are hell…
After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt—the youngest Crown Princess of Hell—wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost from Matt’s past walks through Faith’s apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that’s keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow.
Which is about when Matt’s zealous mother declares war on Faith’s family.
Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she’s got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil's spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she's at it.

I read the first book in this series, Luck of the Devil last year and had a lot of fun with it so when I saw this on Netgalley, I couldn't resist!

So what have you picked up this week?


  1. Oh no, you too? Looks like many of us were ill in the past two weeks. :( Hope you feel better soon - and hope you enjoy the book! x

  2. I'm in Hampshire in the South and our snow has melted in the last few days luckily, I hope yours doesn't cause too many more problems.

    Fab book - Sounds like something I'd enjoy :) Hope you feel better soon!

  3. I hope you are feeling better, Mel! How are you with Pantomime? Liking it so far? The snowfall was horrendous on Friday where I am but it's almost all melted by now. I hope you get out of your reading slump and start enjoying more books, sweetheart! I find that big long fantasy or historical romance usually help me to take a break when I need it. Maybe try Charley Davidson series? :) Hugs x

  4. Was confused for a second because Devil May Care is also the name of a Bond novel haha .. Looks like a good read anyhow .. enjoy! :)
