In My Mailbox #81: 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 received some great surprise books in the post this week. I think I'm most excited about The Legacy by Gemma Malley, because I LOVE that series. I hope it's is a worthy ending!

On to the books...




For review:
  • Lost by Gregory Maguire



Bought:

There were also a few cool things in Scholastic's Linger package - a Linger sell sheet type fold-out thing and postcard, and a Mockingjay postcard. 17 days, people!!



Happy reading!

Oh my God, The Legacy. Has anyone ever told you you are an extremely lucky person? I hope it's good! I was a bit disappointed with The Resistance. I loved Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy, I hope you enjoy it too! Plus - Lost Dogs! I've read the first book in the series, I'd be interested to see your opinions if you review it!

I really hope you enjoy Holes! Also I see the Sarah MacLean book in that pile - woot!! I hope you get as much laughter from that book as I did! I was certainly surprised that I loved it as much as I did considering it's romance.

Also I LOVE Gregory Maguire! Fun Fact About Me: His sister lives near Montreal and used to shop at the bookshop I worked at and one day she was buying a GM book and I went and raved and raved about it and how Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister was one of the best books ever. She then told me he was her brother and she brought him in when he came to visit and he signed my books and the ones in the store!

The end!

PS - also notice Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls book - YAY! READ IT!

Fracky said...

OMG, look all this cool things about Linger that you received *-* I'm jealous! lol
and Linger UK cover, I gotta say I love the UK covers of Shiver and Linger, I think they call more attention than US covers.

And Almost True is this book somehow sequel of When I Was Joe? Because the cover is similar, huh?

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

Great books this week! And I'm counting down for Mockingjay too...can't wait!

Rhiana said...

I'm hoping The Legacy might be one of my parcels at the delivery office this week! I can't wait to see what you think of nine rules... after reading Carla's review I am so tempted to buy it!

Jenny N. said...

Nice mailbox, the Linger swag looks really nice. Happy reading!

17 days! I think Mockingjau will be a perfect way to end summer! Holes, love the movie and I can only imagine the book is 10x better.

Alison said...

Great selection. I loved Linger and the Ally Carter books. It's always fun for me to see British covers.

What a great selection! I too am pretty excited about The Legacy - interested to hear your thoughts on it. I didn't know that they were bringing out the Famous Five books again. Five Go To Owl's Den was the first library book that I ever got out (I was five). Love it!
