In My Mailbox #82: 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 amazing for a number of reasons. I got some great books in the post, read an amazing book (Matched by Ally Condie, in case you're wondering), and went to London on Saturday to meet John Green. Yes, *the* John Green (along with a couple of debut author friends who go by the names of Kaz Mahoney and Cat Clarke!). A mini report and pics will be posted soon! Let's just say it was AWESOME.


Anyway, let's talk this week's books!




For review:
  • Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (UK proof/ARC)
  • Scarlett Dedd by Cathy Brett (Yay! And I'm quoted at the back! Double yay!)



Bought:


Have a great week everyone!

*________*

Fracky said...

OK, I was so freaking out with the fact that you met John Green and received another arc of Crescendo that I forgot to mention that I love Meg Cabot's books.
I loved Airhead, I havent read Being Nikki but is already listed as a MUST READ.

Jesse Owen said...

I have Scarlett Dedd on my wishlist (congrats on the quote). Love the look of the Air Head books.

Happy Reading :)

I just finished INPYSE 5 mintues ago!! I LOVED it! I laughed through the entire thing, and cried a little too...

You had a great week!! Enjoy all your new books!

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

Hey, I think I am getting What I Learned From Being a Cheerleader this coming week with something else.

I might be the only person on the face of the earth who isn't interested in I AM Number Four or that Crescendo book. Hmm.

I saw a movie trailer for Guardians of Ga'Hoole in May and broke out in tears just from the trailer! It was stunning but I had never heard of the book series before. Is it a UK thing?

Liz. R said...

I really loved the Airhead series! I bought the American versions because I couldn't be bothered to wait for them to come out in the UK :P. I hope you enjoy them! I Am Number Four looks really good too, happy reading!
