In My Mailbox #79: 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 cool - lots of good surprise books arrived, and I also bought some from the one and only Amazon. I'm so glad they stock US imports! I didn't read much this week, I kind of had a break. I think it's done me good!

Anyway, here are this week's books, including a couple of duplicates:



For review:
  • Being Billy by Phil Earle (UK proof/ARC. Signed. Thanks Phil!)
  • Reckless by Cornelia Funke (Look at that cover!)
  • Jealousy by Lili St. Crow (I'm quoted in this one! Yay! Pic below..)



Bought:
  • Forget You by Jennifer Echols (I had to buy a lovely finished copy. My ARC review is here!)

As mentioned above, I noticed I was quoted inside Jealousy by Lili St. Crow. It's so cool, and I had no idea!



Happy reading, everyone!
