In My Mailbox #70: New Books This Week

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


I had such an amazing week this week, and I'm still really excited. Most of these were complete surprises, and it was a little bit like Christmas opening them all. It was a crazy week for review books, but I've already read 3 of them, and some aren't published until August. Thank you very, very much to all the lovely publishers & publicists!

Click on the book titles to go to their Amazon pages.






For review:
  • Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Enjoyed this one!)
  • Torment by Lauren Kate (Bound manuscript. Woohoo!)





Bought:


Happy reading, everyone! And if you're going to BEA next week - ENJOY!

You, my little partner in book crime, are bloomin marvellous!! Just look at all these books, I want to come over to your house, and bask in the glory that is your book shelves.

I'm halfway through reading The Sky is Everywhere, and its beautiful and jarring, and weird in a good way. I love that the finished copy looks like a diary, it's so pretty, and the cover is divine!!

And The Lighter Side to Life and Death sounds amazing, love triangles are fab, and it's a refreshing change to have one guy and two girls for a change. Am ordering this one right now.

Rock out, fo shizzle

Holy cow! Now that's an amazing book week!! I cannot wait to see what you think about Torment. I didn't really care for Fallen, but they way it ended made me think the second book could be better.

I LOVED the Dark Secrets books (all four) when they were first released as separate books. I hope that you really enjoy the two in volume two.
