In My Mailbox #80: 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 epic for me. Crescendo, Buffy, Kiss Me Deadly... need I say more?! I feel very old/excited that early Buffy books are being reprinted. I first read 2 of the omnibus titles back in 1998, so it's all making me feel a bit nostalgic. I love how they've come up with new covers for a new generation - spreading the BtVS love is so cool!

Here's what I got this week:




For review:

  • Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (US ARC. YAAAAY!!! Thank you K!)

Won:


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

Wow. Crescendo. Argh! Have a great upcoming week. :)

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

Do not like those Nicholas Flammel covers. :( Sad because I tend to like UK covers the best.

Do not like that Buffy cover. Blech. Why does every book need to be Twilightized when they publish or republish it. Bad publishers!

Misty Gordon - MUST GET THAT BOOK. Looks fab. As does In the Dead of Winter. Ooooo. Ghosties!

Your IMMs always make me so happy!

Lauren said...

Buffy, Crescendo and CANDOR? Fantastic week. And you've just reminded me I should be able to pick up a copy of Candor when it comes out here tomorrow, which is a bonus. So exciting!

I'm liking the new Buffy covers too. And I'm also feeling old. Meh.

asamum said...

Yay so glad you got Buffy ;)
Another truly awesome book week - I may have to hug your mailbox :D
Enjoy

Library Mice said...

Oh cool, Buffy? Did not that was coming, are those re-editions if the old ones?
"Martha, No" is really great!

Kate said...

Enjoy the books! Happy reading!

Carla said...

Is it crazy of me that I really really want to itlick the cover of Candor even though there's a wasp on it. Because I really want to lick it. One of my favourite UK covers in a long time, I think the image they have used is just so fitting for the book. Plus I know how excited you were for Crescendo, so I am breaking out the awesome dance in honor of this *dances*

Lori said...

You had a great week! Enjoy!!

Jesse Owen said...

I'm glad you got Buffy - can't wait to read them (I only read a couple when they originally came out)

YellowBanana said...

Crescendo! :O can't wait to read your review of it!

Lyndsey said...

I've had The Fallen (the old version) in my TBR for months now but havent gotten round to it. Now I know they have re done it and a Vol.2 to be released, I think I want that version. So many great books for you this week!
