In My Mailbox #74: New Books This Week

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

The only way I can describe this past week is: AMAZING. I went to London for 3 days, to interview authors, attend a trade dinner, go to Sarah Rees Brennan's launch event, and visit some publishers. I still can't believe the week I had, and the books I came back with. I'll be posting a London report on Monday, if any of you guys are interested in what I got up to! :)

Here are the books I got this week:



Bought:
  • Crank by Ellen Hopkins (Lovely new hardcover edition. Review here).
  • The Spook's Secret by Joseph Delaney (Bought in London after I met Joseph and he signed a copy for me).



For review:
  • White Cat by Holly Black (Finished copy - very nice!)
  • Annexed by Sharon Dogar (UK proof/ARC. So excited to read this!)
  • iBoy by Kevin Brooks



From London, for review:
  • I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore (UK proof/ARC. It's a really nice hardback in a slipcase!)
  • Matched by Ally Condie (UK proof/ARC)
  • Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan (Already have the HB but it's huge, so going to try the paperback!)
  • Trash by Andy Mulligan (UK proof/ARC. Came packaged in a brown paper bag!)
  • Grace by Morris Gleitzman (AU edition. Published here in February).
  • Fallen by Lauren Kate (Lovely new paperback. Review here).

Happy reading, everyone! :)

That's an impressive haul! Glad you had a good time in London. Didn't realise Sharon Dogar had written a new book - just looked it up and it seems so different to her previous books. I'll have to get it when it's published.

Just seen too that my blog is your 'blog of the week'. Thank you so much - very kind of you :)
