In My Mailbox #89: 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 great, 'cause I got a job! Yay! I now work in the book department in WH Smith. :D I'm sure most of my blogging friends know I used to work at Borders before it shut last Xmas Eve, and have been looking for a retail book-related job ever since. It's quite a relief! Besides that, I also got some cool books in the post and finally watched the first series of Misfits. What could be better than that?!

Here are the new additions to my book collection:



For review:



I also ended up with a few duplicate review copies this week...

Happy reading!

I've heard rumors, but I didn't actually think Hilary Duff would have a novel out.

The Half Line of Planets sounds really good and I loved Rules of Attraction!
