In My Mailbox #91: 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 had another great week this week, 'cause the new editions of The Twilight Saga are out! Woohoo! I also got the new Rick Riordan book, which is lovely in person and much better than I thought it would look. I haven't been around the blogosphere much because I've had a really busy week at work, but hopefully things will settle down soon. (Sorry for the lack of comments etc.!) Also, I'm at the fourth Eternal Twilight convention next week, so my IMM will be the week after. Yay!

Here are the books I received this week:



For review:
  • Matched by Ally Condie (UK proof/ARC. Already read this so I'm giving this duplicate copy to my friend!)

Bought

Gift:
  • Maggie Stiefvater UK Lament sampler (Signed)

I was invited to a dinner with John Boyne a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't make it :( Kelly at Random House got me a signed copy of his new book instead, which is ace! :D Thanks Kelly! I also didn't get chance to meet Maggie Stiefvater, so my friend Leanne got me a signed sampler from one of her public events. Cheers matey!


Happy reading, everyone!

I admit, the Twilight books are pretty. But I prefer the black. Hadn't seen them before though, not a Twilight fan so when I heard they were being re-released, I didn't bother checking them out. Awesome haul of books though! Happy reading :)

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

I wish the internets had a summary for The Mourning Emporium because that caught my eye right away! I have wishlisted it anyhow because I love the cover and the title. ;)

I just saw that new Rick Riordan book in the store this week. I had passed on caring about it because I thought the series seemed forced but holding the book in my hands I was all "I NEED THIS IT IS SOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!" but I couldn't buy it. I will have to though. Gah.
