Showcase Sunday #9

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea where you show what books you've purchased, borrowed, checked out from the library, received from giveaway, etc.

Bought: Melissa is currently addicted to anything written by Jennifer Armentrout. She downloaded the entire Covenant series. She also bought Ocean at the End of the Lane for our book club and Mentoring 101 for a work book club. I purchased the below three self-help marriage books at a secondhand store. I'm not married but they contain interesting discussion topics and are very informative about relationships in general. In addition, I had a New Year's resolution to read 6 self-help or self-motivating book in 2013. I haven't completed one this year so I need to get at it.

Borrowed: I borrowed two more books from the library this week, which is a little bit less than normal, but I have a pile on my nightstand so I should be good for a while. I am currently finishing up The Hunt. It's about a human pretending to be a vampire in a vampire dominated pretend or to be eaten is the question he faces everyday. I also picked up Tiger Lily which is a book I heard good things about from fellow bloggers. It is the story of Tiger Lily from Peter Pan. I wonder if I should read Peter Pan before this or  if the Disney's version will give me enough to go off of. Any thoughts from people who have read it?

Freebie: I downloaded this one as our Friday's Featured Freebie pick. It is about a fifteen-year-old girl and Hades' twin sons, Hypnos and Thanatos.
