In My Mailbox #96: 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 another ace week for books! I've already read a couple of them, and they have got me straight out of my slight reading slump. Yay! There's so much good stuff coming out next year, I'm really excited - it's looking like it might even be better than 2010. And no, that's not *just* because Markus Zusak finally has a new book scheduled to be published... *whistles*

Here's what landed in my mailbox this week:




For review:
  • Rosebush by Michele Jaffe (UK proof/ARC)
  • Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann (US ARC. Read it and loved it! Thanks K!)

~



Bought:
  • War Horse: Special Edition by Michael Morpurgo
(I really liked this book, so I bought the new hardcover illustrated edition).


~



Borrowed:
(Borrowed from the lovely Mr. Phil Earle, January debut author of Being Billy. I've been meaning to read this for years but wasn't sure about it. Cheers Phil!)


~



Won:
(Signed. I won this in Firelight author Sophie Jordan's 'Jacinda in the Wild' contest. Thanks so much, Sophie - it looks great! My picture is the second from the bottom, by the way, titled 'Firelight & Friends'.)



Hope you all had a good week, and happy reading!

OooO Nightshade's cover is gorgeous!! I really like Nothing Like You's cover as well. Might have to look into that one.

Great week!

MichieBee said...

These all look great! :) I love the UK cover for Nightshade.

Also, a new Markus Zusak book!?! That's ridiculously exciting. He's me and my mom's favorite author (The Book Thief and I Am the Messenger also being our all-time favorite books.) :D

Nikki-ann said...

It's great to hear that Markus Zusak has finally got the new book scheduled. He seems to have been writing it for ever! :)
