In My Mailbox #69: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon.

I had a really fun mailbox this week, with some cool extras and some AMAZING sounding books that I can't wait to read. I am so spoilt for choice, and choosing a new book to read is getting harder and harder! I think I'm building my own library, which is very cool. :D If you want larger pics of the books, just clickity-click the image!

Hope you guys all had a great week and, as always, happy reading!



Bought
  • The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks (Bought the movie tie-in because I loved the movie and quite fancy Liam Hemsworth... how sad is that?!)



For review:
  • iBoy by Kevin Brooks (UK proof/ARC).
  • Genesis by Bernard Beckett (Reviewed the hardcover last year, click here to read).



Won:
(Thanks to Michael O'Mara Books!)


Gifts:

(From Carla - thanks matey!)



I also got some cool swag type stuff this week. My friend at Puffin sent me a lovely Puffin 70th Anniversary bag and a plush Moomin toy, which Tommy Donbavand has named Dennis. Suzanne Young sent me some signed Naughty List/So Many Boys bookmarks, postcards and cover image - I'll be giving some of these away soonish. Barbara Dee sent along a This Is Me From Now On bookmark, and my friend at Orion sent a huge Prince of Mist poster and bookmarks. :) Thanks, everyone!

Gah I want Birthmarked and Lies *soo* much!! Awesome looking books I hope you enjoy them (whenever you can possibly find the time to read all of them :P)

Stephanie said...

Great books this week! I just bought The Last Song today too--I'm just really intrigued by all the buzz! :) Happy Reading!

Steph Su said...

Woohoo for getting Birthmarked and Lies! I am so obsessed with the Gone series; need to get my hands on Lies real soon. And The Eternal Ones was one of those reads that, while I didn't rank too highly, I still enjoyed the heck out of and can't stop thinking about and want to hug.

Also, what does your home look like with all these books you get every week?? Haha. Have you done a post about your bookshelves already? Or can you do one soon?

Manda (Manda's Movements) said...

Wow Infinite Days! I haven't seen anyone get that ARC yet! You lucky devil, you. :D

Life After Jane said...

Wow! Great books! I got Birthmarked this week as well. I hope it's as good as it looks. Happy reading!

prophecygirl said...

Steph - alas, I don't have bookshelves. :( Well, I have one, and one dedicated to Buffy/Angel books. Other than that, I have storage boxes full, and piles on the floor, on my desk, on boxes etc... You get the picture ;)

One day I plan to have a room shelved and made into a library. I think I'll have to move out for that to happen, but y'never know!

Kathy Martin said...

What a great group of books you got this week. I am really looking forward to Raised by Wolves. I hope you enjoy all your new books. Happy reading!

Sarah said...

What an impressive haul this week. I want to read Birthmarked and Something Like Fate right now! :) One of these days I have to pick up Michael Grant's Gone series, they look sooooo good.

Kate at Read This Book! said...

You're indeed spoiled for choice, wow, your IMM is always twice the size of mine. Haha. I've heard many great things about Birthmarked! OMG The Eternal Ones and Raised by Wolves will be published in UK? FANTASTIC! And they will be in paperback too! Enjoy your books! Happy reading! =D

Ahh you got Infinite Days!!! I can't wait to hear what you think of it! And I hope you like Birthmarked as much as I did! Enjoy all your books!

Becky said...

Look at them all. It is super crazy and super fun. I love how you don't let it worry you. I need to get Genesis now it is out in paperback. I didn't spot it yesterday so I'll have to add it to my wishlist. Maybe you will get around to reading The Left Hand of God before me. Isn't it crazy that I bought it ages ago and still haven't got around to reading it. I need to take control!

NotNessie said...

Wow! You got a ton of stuff this week. I've heard really good things about Birth Marked, I hope you enjoy it.
