In My Mailbox #78: 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!


Another great week for me! I received some books I've been really looking forward to, so I can't wait to get stuck in :)



For review:
  • Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld
  • Losing It by Various Authors (New finished copy, because my proof had pages missing. Review here).



Bought:



Gift:

Firelight by Sophie Jordan (US ARC)

Rebecca Maizel, the lovely author of Infinite Days, sent me this ARC as well as some Infinite Days postcards (and dried lavender. Yay!). I read Firelight the day it arrived and absolutely LOVED IT. So much so that I haven't stopped talking about it yet! Thanks so much Rebecca!


I also got some other cool stuff this week. My friend Leanne sent me a signed bookplate that Michelle Zink asked her to pass on...



...and Lori from Pure Imagination sent me some Bree Tanner swag, along with some other YA book swag and signed bookmarks. I love bookmarks and stuff, so big thanks Lori!

Great books! Looking forward to seeing what you think of The Poison House in particular cause I have it on preorder.

Sab H. said...

OMG I think you will REALLY enjoy The Maze Runner! I LOVED it! It's one of the best post-Hunger Games dystopian sci-fi adventures. And yay for Shadow Hills. Cute bookmarks! Love the Bree Tanner ones.. :)
Happy Reading!

Natasha said...

I want theses books. Can I have them? hehe jk! Lucky!

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

Stupid Twilight - but those books marks are awesome. :)

LOVED Guardian of the Gate!!!

I have Firelight but have not started it yet since it's due Fall-ish and I am trying to get other reading done. ;)

Raíla said...

I heard about Firelight only this week and I really liked the premise. Wondering whether I should read or not. Also, Shadow Hills sounds like an awesome book as well, which I can't wait to put my hands on! I love the Bree Tanner swag! Hope you have a happy reading week. :)

The new ARTEMIS FOWL! OMG!

Fracky said...

Besides Artemis Fowl I don't know these books. :( But I liked Prep's cover.

You tweet so much about Firelight on Twitter that I'm dying to read it. When it will be released?

Lea (YA Book Queen) said...

Awesome books! I've heard so many great things about Prep through the years. Great swag, too!

Happy reading! =)

Erika said...

you have some awesome things this week especially all the swag (I love freebies). I'll be interested to what you make of some of the books as several of them are on my wishlist

Becky said...

Ooh, I am excited to hear what you think of Accomplice. The premise for that is intriguing and I think a little sinister. Enjoy!

Rhiana said...

I can't wait to see what you think of Shadow Hills. I got The Poisoned House, it sounds good!

Lauren said...

Oh, how I adore The Maze Runner. If I don't get my hands on the sequel soon I'm going to spontaneously combust, I'm sure of it.

And that bookplate from Michelle Zink is the *coolest*. I'm so envious!!

Lori said...

You had a great week! The Maze Runner is amazing! Really, it is! I read Prep years ago and really loved it! I have even reread it! I'm happy you like all the swag!! :)

Ryan Woods said...

Wow. Good haul this week, Jenny. :)

I've got The Maze Runner (AMAZING, you need to read it!!!! Like seriously!!!) and Dead Man's Cove and Flood & Fire. Looking forward to reading them too! Look forward to seeing what you think of them. :)

Hope you have a great week this week. :)

Life After Jane said...

An amazing week for you! I hope you enjoy each and every one of them!

Liz. R said...

I am so jealous! Artemis Fowl! I'm in love with that series. I don't care that it's aimed at twelve year olds :P. Looking forward to that review. And I hope you enjoy The Maze Runner! I really liked it. If you get the chance, check out the US cover too. I quite like the UK one, but I think I prefer the US one. Firelight looks great! Enjoy your week :).

Lillie (AliseOnLife) said...

Great books and swag! I must remember to order Shadow Hills! I can't find it in store, but seeing it here reminded me again how much I want to read it.
Enjoy!

The cover for Dustbin Cat made me laugh! AWESOME books, as usual for you. :) You're one of those people who make me have blogger envy.
