Showcase Sunday #26

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea.

If you follow me on Goodreads, you might have noticed that I have launched into a reread of the Harry Potter series, so this week's Showcase Sunday is a little bit Potter-heavy...

I picked these up from home when I went to visit my family last weekend. I also picked up Agatha Christie's The Murder At The Vicarage (borrowed from my stepmum), which is my second attempt at a Miss Marple mystery this year. I normally prefer Poirot, but I decided to give Marple a go for a change. Unfortunately, the first Marple book I picked up from the library a while ago was The Moving Finger, which hardly features Marple at all - this is meant to be more of a classic!

I also got My Mad, Fat, Teenage Diary by Rae Earl from the library. This is the actual diary of Rae, and was the basis for the recent E4 programme My Mad Fat Diary.

Recent reviews:
All That I Am - Anna Funder (7/10) - based on the true story of German citizens who resisted Hitler's rise to power in the early 1930s
Dare You To - Katie McGarry (DNF for making me go ARGGGGH throughout the first few chapters)
The Whole of My World - Nicole Hayes (6.5/10) - Australian YA with a footie backdrop
Twerp - Mark Goldblatt (7/10) - funny MG featuring Julian and his journal

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'd forgotten how huge some of those Harry Potter books are. To think, they are meant for little hands?!

  2. There's nothing wrong with a Potter heavy haul! I hope you enjoy re-reading them. Happy reading! :)

  3. I don't even remember Marple appearing in The Moving Finger. o.O I didn't really like that one, to be honest. I don't think I've read The Murder At The Vicarage yet so I'll be looking forward to hearing what you think :)

    And yay for Harry Potter!

  4. Potter and Christie rock! I am making myself a Christie collection. :)
    And I'll be rereading Potter soon as well. :D

    My haul!

  5. I LOVED Mad Fat Diary on E4! I really hope you enjoy reading the book so you can tell us about it later! Great haul :)

  7. Harry Potter is always good, anytime. :) I wish I could reread the books, but I just don't have the time.
