Sunday is when I sit back with a lovely cup of tea and write about all the wonderful new books I've received and purchased in the past week. This post participates in fab memes Showcase Sunday and Stacking the Shelves.

• Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull (gift)
• The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera (review copy)
• The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (gift)
• The Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan (review copy)
• The Memory Book by Rowan Coleman (competition win)
• The Naughty Girls' Book Club by Sophie Hart (competition win)
• The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer (review copy)
• Tiny Acts of Love by Lucy Lawrie (ebook, review copy)
Last week I moaned a little about the lack of new reads, so of course since then I received ALL THE BOOKS! I'm stoked with my new review novels as they're all titles I've been wanting to read for a while now, either because I've been hearing nothing but great things about them or they're written by authors I absolutely adore (Clarke, Colgan). I've already read a few of them and they were amazing but I'm reading quicker than I can review - so I'll post longer thoughts in the next few weeks.
I'm also very happy with my copies of The Naughty Girls' Book Club and The Memory book, which I won in pre-birthday on Shaz's book blog giveaway, I can't wait to start reading them! The big stack of Fablehaven novels were a belated birthday gift. They look very interesting and different from the type of novels I normally pick up, has anyone read this series yet?
On Friday (also known as book giving day, ahum) Penguin held an brilliant campaign at St Pancras International station for The Fault In Our Stars. I read about it on Twitter and took an early lunch break to check it out. There was this huge display of the book on the lower concourse, an artist was drawing this amazing TFIOS art, I had my photo taken and I received a free copy of the book (which is brilliant because I only owned an e-copy so far) with matching book mark. It was a fantastic literary lunch outing and brightened up my otherwise dull work day.
So in all my week was pretty awesome, hope you guys had a lovely bookish week too! ♥
