In My Mailbox #90: 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!

So, this week was pretty amazing! I ended up with a lot of cool books, some of which I am very, very excited to read (Hellooo, Delirium!). I went to London on Monday and Tuesday, to go to Jennifer Lynn Barnes' Raised by Wolves launch party and to visit some publishing friends. I'll write a proper report soon, but I ended up seeing Quercus, Orion, Hodder and Headline. *waves* Anyway. It was a great trip, and I also got to hang out with the lovely Justin Somper, who writes the Vampirates series. Oh, and it was also my first proper week at my new job - all went well, and I'm so happy to be a bookseller again. :D

Now, here are this week's books:

For review:
  • The Beasties by Jenny Nimmo and Gwen Millward (Read this and the Beasties are very cute!)


For review, from London:
  • My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult (The Hodder ladies were shocked I'd never read a JP book, so they threw a couple of titles at me).
  • Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild (This is a nice new collector's edition - will give it a go!)
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver (UK proof/ARC. OMG! etc. It also has my Before I Fall quote in it!)


  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (I've always bought the US hardcover editions of Cassie's books, so I had to get this one too!)
  • Torment by Lauren Kate (Again, a lovely US hardcover edition).
  • Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales (I've heard good things about this one, and I love the cover).



As always, hope you all have a great week and happy blogging/reading!

Oh, that cover for Beautiful Darkness looks SO good in the final hard copy version. I can't wait to pick it up (I read the ARC, but need the final copy for my collection).

I want Search for WondLa too. It looks very cool.

Yay, books!

Luisa at Chicklish said...

And yay on the Before I Fall quote in Delirium, you star!

Catherine (On The Nightstand) said...

Another great week for you. Lots of books that I hadn't heard of before, so definitely checking those out.

I'm a big Cate Tiernan fan, so if you do like Immortal Beloved I definitely recommend you check out her Sweep series and Balefire quartet (when the bind-ups are out).

Rhiana said...

Oh so many great books I don't know where to start! Can't wait to see what you think of The Replacement, Immortal Beloved sounds fab.,, and the cover is gorgeous! Yay for Delirium, I'm reading it online and it's really good so far. The Beasties sounds right up my little Lu's street so I've wish listed that one for her Christmas list!
