In My Mailbox #103: 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!

Woohoo for new UK releases and publishers being back at work. I missed talking to all my friends over the Christmas holidays, though I'm sure they're not as happy about being back at work ;)


----------




For review:
Cool cover... I need to catch up with this series one day!

I've had the US edition of this for ages, and still haven't read it. Now I have some new motivation and I can't wait!

I read a proof copy of this last month, and my review will be up soon. This is a lovely finished copy with the beautiful cover. There's no way anyone can walk past it in a shop and not stop and stare!

This sounds like a great thriller, and I'm looking forward to starting it. I haven't read many books in this genre, but here's hoping Long Reach is a good one.

Bought:
I think I first saw this one over at The Story Siren a few weeks ago. It sounds fun, and quite similar to Anna Godbersen's Bright Young Things.

Yay! This is the series that inspired my blog name, and I can't wait to see where it ends. Also, isn't the cover amazing?!

Gifts:
Everyone at WHSmith, where I work, was given a free copy of this because the Richard & Judy book club is exclusive to us. It's set in WWII are sounds like a good read, even though it is adult! I do love my WWII stories...

This is a late Christmas present from my mum and dad - I have the rest of the series in US hardback, so I had to match.

I also have to mention this cool set of 13 Treasures top trumps cards I won from my buddy Michelle Harrison's Facebook page. I'm a HUGE fan of her books, and these are very cool. Thanks Michelle!


Also, thanks to Stephanie Kuehnert, who sent me some signed I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone and Ballads of Suburbia bookplates and bookmarks. High five to you, dude!



Happy reading!

*shivers* Are these the cards you were talking about on twitter? *drools* Soooooo beautiful!

I had wanted to add Entangled to my preorders when I was ordering Christmas books but it wasn't available to add before January! It only became available after I had placed my orders. So I will be ordering it for my birthday. ;P The cover is GORGEOUS!

I'm reading Entangled now and I can't decide how I feel about it. That cover, however, is gorgeous. I hope you like The Iron King, because that book is great!

Kay (Dead Book Darling) said...

Those cards are FAB. You got some fantastic books this week.

Also, I had no idea that Wondrous Strange was the inspiration for your name! Now that I've written that out, it seems rather obvious... but still! If you enjoyed it so much, I must read it asap.

I know what you mean about the Entanglec over..I've seen it a million and one times but I still managed to stop and stare in the shop for ages..:D

Vixen sounds great! I really enjoyed BYT so I might have to grab a copy of this one soon!

And those cards? Stunning! Just the idea of them makes me smile!

Love the top trump cards! I think I really need to try the Lesley Livingston books and I'm so tempted to get the Need series in HB - love that series!

Looking forward to your reviews:)

I've just finished Entangled, loved it! Finding writing a review on it difficult though for some reason. I really want to read The Iron King.
