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!

The eagle eyed among you will also spot that this week I joined Twitter! I'm still figuring the whole thing out but I was surprised and delighted to find so many friends on Twitter and within minutes of joining I had followers! Thank you so much to those of you that made me feel welcome straight away. Now I've joined I'm actually more hopeful and positive about the whole thing (although part of me is slightly worried about that I'm being brainwashed by a cult!). So if you would like to follow me on Twitter check me out @Random_MelS

This week has been a very mixed week for me in terms of different genres I've read! I finished The Red Tree by Caitlin R Kiernan - a spooky and atmospheric read and Always There by Carol Ann Albright-Eastman - a beautiful book about opening your heart to love. I also finished Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon - an interesting YA SF story and a short story Doubled-Crossed by Ally Carter which mixes up characters from her two series - neither of which I have read!

The other good news is that for once this week I have less books coming in than I read! Yay me! Four books down and only one in for review...not bad.


A Cursed Embrace (Weird Girls #2) - Cecy Robson
Publisher: Signet
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls—with one tiny exception: They are the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that made them, well, a little weird…
After Celia Wird and her sisters help master vampire Misha save his family, their powers are exposed to the supernatural community of the Lake Tahoe region. But fame comes at a price, and being “weird” isn’t always welcome.
To make matters worse, Celia desires the love of Alpha werewolf Aric, but his pack is bent on destroying their relationship to preserve his pureblood status. And once weres start turning up dead—with evidence pointing to the vampires—she must face the prospect of losing Aric forever. But the chaos only masks a new threat. An evil known as the Tribe has risen—and their sights are set on Celia and her sisters.

I adored Sealed with a Curse so I'm looking forward to catching up with the Wird girls!
