In My Mailbox #77: 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!

This week was pretty ace! On Monday I went to the Simon & Schuster offices with some other bloggers, to watch a book presentation and meet some of the S&S adult team and their authors. It was a really fun day, and it was great to see Carolyn from Book Chick City and Sophie from So Many Books, So Little Time. *waves* Thanks S&S! Then on Tuesday I went to a Justin Cronin signing for The Passage, where I also got to interview him (hopefully that'll be posted next week). So all in all, it's been a fun but busy week!

Now for the books!



Bought:



For review:
  • Cathy's Ring by Jordan Weisman, Sean Stewart and Cathy Brigg
  • Torment by Lauren Kate (A proper UK proof/ARC!)
  • Fade by Lisa McMann (Already read this last year, my review is here).



From S&S event:






I'm really excited again, because I'm quoted on two new S&S books: the front of Dark Life by Kat Falls and the back of Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles (along with Becky from The Bookette). I almost fell over when I saw them! I hope you all don't mind me mentioning it, 'cause if I can't share it with you guys, who can I share it with?!





Happy reading, everyone!

Kay (Dead Book Darling) said...

Congrats on the quotes!!! I just read Rules of Attraction last night and it kept me up till 6 am - I read the whole thing straight through. I loved it about 100 times more than Perfect Chemistry (which was brill), so let's just say you are in for a treat. :)

Squeals! I am still in shock over that little picture of delight! I cannot wait to see what the front of the UK cover looks like. I am drooling just at the thought.

Anyways, I think you are doing a fantastic job with your blog and I really hope it leads to many more exciting things.

Sounds like you had a great time and that's a whole load of books! I'd love to hear what you think about Getting The Girl when you've read it... I've read 3 of Markus Zusak's other books and loved them. I need to get that one too :)

Love all the spoils! Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading) found you today through IMM and I found you in Twitter...lol... So we are both happy to have found your blog, it's great!

Marie said...

So many great books! What is the S&S event? I'm attracted to Paige Toon's books but I'm from the US and well they're hard to get (thank goodness for BookDepository though)!

I keep hearing about Dark Life, it sounds interesting (and jellyfish are my fav sea animals)!

Have a great reading week!
