In My Mailbox #107: New Books This Week (+ vlog)


In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon. Click images for a bigger picture!

I had such a good week this week! On Wednesday I went out to dinner with Barry Hutchison (author of the Invisible Fiends series) and Tiffany from HarperCollins, and on Thursday I went to London to a Simon & Schuster blogger event. We met authors, listened to a Q&A session and got to chat to bloggers, said authors and lovely S&S people. It was a great 2 hours!

I've attempted a vlog this week, though it isn't very good quality. I'll post it anyway, but go easy on me... I'm not at all good with videos ;)

For review:
  • Stories by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio

Gift:

A local accent! Great vlog Jenny.

How amazing it must feel to have your words quoted in the actual books. Congratulations!

Fab vlog Jenny - way more brave than me - I cower and hide and generally try anything to get away from a camera let alone a video camera (even an iPhone based one) :D

Great books this week, I love the special edition cover of The Iron Witch and I can't wait for Raising Demons.

Plus huge congratulations on the quotes, happy reading :D

Kate said...

Ahh, I wish Divergent would hurry up and get published for the rest of us :)
Its so cool that you get quoted on all these books. When I found a quote from you on the back of Before I Fall I got a little excited on your behalf :D

I started watching this as soon as you posted it last night but then dinner arrived and we watched a movie and I never finished - just did now! Yay video blog! :)

Yay being quotes all over the place! Good heavens! I'm so proud of you! I'll be able to tell people "I knew Jenny when she was just a blogger and not a professional reviewer and I got her hooked on books" heheh don't forget me when you're all famous and stuff, ok?
