In My Mailbox #75: 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!


I had another great week for books. I received some exciting surprises in the mail, a couple of which are duplicate copies. I'll probably give my UK edition of The Dark Divine away in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out. :)

Now onto the books!




For review:
  • Angel by L. A. Weatherly (UK proof/ARC)
  • White Crow by Marcus Sedgwick (A lovely finished hardcover with a great interior design!)
  • Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready (I read this a couple of months ago and loved it. Review coming in late August).
  • No and Me by Delphine de Vigan (I really liked this too, and I'm quoted on the press release. Yay! I might give this one away as well. Review here).
  • The Dark Divine by Bree Despain (LOVE this book! It was one of my '09 favourites. Read my review here).



Bought:

Edit: I forgot to mention (no idea how!) that I also received a manuscript copy of Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel for review. YAY!!


Hope you all have a great week, and happy reading!

WOW - awesome week! Angel, Shade, Claire de lune and She's so dead to us are ones I can't wait to read! Loved the first Zelda Green and really like the new covers!

Hope you enjoy them all:) Looking forward to your reviews:)

Tina said...

The paperback for She's So Dead to Us looks so cute! :)

I think I'm one of the few who didn't really like The Dark Divine? Eep. It wasn't my kind of novel, I guess.

Lovely stash, so many books! How do you find the time to read all these? :)

Jan von Harz said...

Just got The Passage this week too and hope to start it soon. It is a monster book and I will need to spend some time on it. Lots of other great books this week enjoy.

Lori said...

I can't wait to read Glimpse!! Enjoy all your books! And I love the UK cover of Claire de Lune! It's prettier than the US one!

Kate at Read This Book! said...

Tons of fabulous books! Can't wait to hear your thoughts for The Passage, that one looks really interesting. =D Happy reading!

prophecygirl said...

Tina - Some of these aren't published for a few months, and a couple I've already read. I just get to them when I can!

Jan von Harz - Yes, I'm so excited about The Passage. Fingers crossed it's as good as it looks!

Bookalicious Ramblings said...

Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading) said...

Wow! That's a lot of books! And I'm totally jealous about the Clockwork Angel. :)
Happy reading!

asamum said...

My book envy knows no bounds :D Should really think twice about looking at your IMM posts, lol.
My offer of adoption is still open - swap you for the hubs ;)
Congrats on the manuscript how awesome is that :D

Mrs. DeRaps said...

Wow. A manuscript?! That's just amazing. I am eying The Passage right now--I've heard so many great reviews/ promotions for it. I can't believe how many books you got in one week! Have fun reading them all.

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

Ok, I just have to say that the cover for SHE'S SO DEAD TO US makes much more sense in the UK! As much as I sort of like the simplicity of the pearls on the cover of the North American one, it doesn't match the story at all!

I much prefer the UK cover. Maybe I'll buy it for myself over Christmas and give away my arc. ;)

Fantastic Book Review said...

Awesome week as always! I'm looking forward to reading Clockwork Angel (I've pushed it to top of my list - lol). Loved Shade and The Dark Divine. Enjoy your books!

Ryan Woods said...

Wow. A great week. Happy reading.

Clare said...

I am so insanely jealous of Zelah green 2! LOVED the first one! I'm now off to stare longingly at my amazon pre-order page!

Corrine said...

Great mailbox this week! I hope you enjoy all of the books you received. Happy reading! :)

Wow, nice books! And a manuscript copy of Clockwork Angel!! Cool :)

Hope you enjoy them all!

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

A Clockwork Angel?! Wow, I hate you! (Just kidding!) The Passage looks really interesting and the cover is very creepy.

Lauren said...

You always get such great books! Shade and Claire De Lune were both great so I hope you enjoy them. Also, I love the UK cover of She's So Dead To Us. Happy reading! :)

Jess said...

I couldn't help it! Last night I started The Passage (even though I have a book club book and a review book I should be reading instead). The curiousity was killing me, have you started it yet?

prophecygirl said...

Jess - I haven't started it yet, I've got so many other books to read first. It'll be something to look forward to :)

Hope you enjoy it!
