Stacking the Shelves/Showcase Sunday (4)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's ReviewsShowcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
These memes are is a replacement of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox.

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

Here's a quick reminder to join in my new meme From The Review Pile and to enter my 800 Follower Giveaway! Now, here's my books:

 I received three really exciting books for review this week! Those were The Selection, Saving June and Against All Odds. I've already finished Saving June and I really enjoyed it - I'll be posting the review for it tomorrow. I'd also like to thank Aliaa El Nashar for sending me her book!

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the show Mrs Brown's Boys, but I watch it and find it absolutely hilarious! I was really lucky this week as I walked into a bookshop that had the trilogy which the books, that the show was based on, on offer! I didn't even know the series was based on books, so that was a really pleasant surprise. I bought The Mammy, The Chisellers and The Granny in their new paperback editions (unfortunately I can't find the covers online). I have started The Mammy and I was nearly crying with laughter after reading only 10 pages, so needless to say I'm enjoying it! 

 I hope you've all had a really great week and I'm excited to see what books came into your home this week - leave a link!
