In My Mailbox #112: 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!

There were so many exciting books in my post box this week, and most of them were a complete surprise. I'm particularly excited to read Spirit of the Titanic, as I'm really interested in the Titanic and everything to do with it. Chime also sounds really good... yay!

Here are this week's books!


For review:
I need to read these - I love angels!

I don't read a lot of adult chick-lit, but this sounds funny. I had no idea I was getting a copy, but hey, I'll give it a try!

  • Chime by Franny Billingsley
This sounds amazing, and I've heard some great things from other bloggers. The jacket is lovely too. Well done Bloomsbury!

Yay Tamsyn!

This is a UK book from new publisher Phoenix Yard Books. Very cool.

Sounds funny and light. Just what I'm in the mood for.

I need ot read the first book in this series. It's on my shelf waiting, and has an equally lovely cover!

It's Captain Jack Sparrow. 'Nuff said.

Like I mentioned above, I'm a bit of a Titanic nut so I can't wait to read this.

Sounds like an episode of Gossip Girl gone wrong... looking forward to it!

I love Vanessa's Zelah Green series, and I'm hoping this new book is just as good. No Zelah, but Lilah May sounds just as cool.

How good does this sound?! And it's Australian. Thumbs up.

Read this already and laughed my way through it. I'm rather fond of this series for 7+. Hehe.

I LOVE Carol Lynch Williams. I'm reading this at the moment and so far so good. This woman is brilliant.

This is my second copy of Divergent, which is going to one of my lovely friend's homes. I read it this week and let me just say WOW. Fantastic book. Buy it when it's out! (I am - a shiny finished copy will be mine!)


I went to the discount book shop again this week (yes, the one responsible for introducing me to Gail Carriger and Soulless. I love that place!) and noticed these sitting on the floor. I've been meaning to read this series for ages, so I bought them. US editions for £2.99 each... yeesss!!

After seeing pictures of this online, I had to buy the US edition. It's beautiful.

Yay Eragon! This was also £2.99, and it's pretty amazing. Lovely book.

Happy reading, everyone!

Ooh, niiice! I got Divergent and The Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook too. Chime looks great, and the US version of Across the Universe is very pretty. Plus, I like the look of Vulture's Gate. Another great set of books! Enjoy :).

I'm intrigued by Vulture's Gate... because its Australian. But I'm not in the mood for dystopia so I'll wait and see what you think before I order it.

It seems there are a number of books on the Titanic being released for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking. I just finished a new one called The Band That Played On, about 8 brave musicians who gave their lives by playing music to keep people calm while the Titanic was sinking. Here's a link to the Amazon page, if you're interested:
