In My Mailbox #113: 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!

So this week was ACE! I got so many good books in the post and I have no idea what to read next. I'm leaning towards Wood Angel though, as recommended by Canadian Cat and Michelle Harrison. I also got to go to an event at HarperCollins in London, which you can read all about here. And I'm going to London again on Monday with Crooked Carla, to meet Lauren Oliver. *breathes*

Thanks so much to the publishers - I love you all!


For review:
Thanks to Jennifer for offering to send me Heavenly (wasn't expecting the other two as well!). I've heard good things about these!

I loved the first book in this series. Yay!

I read a proof of this a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. The finished copy is lovely!

I have the US edition of this but haven't read it yet. Again, heard good things!

This is for a Tundra Books blog tour, and it sounds like an unusual historical read.

I read the first book in this series, Infinity, last year and thought it was okay. This has another great cover!

I nabbed this from the HarperCollins event. I love fantasy but have never read this. Part of it is set in Alderly Edge, which isn't too far away from me!

Can't wait to read this!

Again, I loved the first book in this series. There's a fey hob!

I've never read one of Kelley's books (YA or adult), so I'm looking forward to this.

Sounds creepy!

These were originally published 10 years ago, and are being republished by S&S. I shall give them a go!

Another one I got from HarperCollins. It just sounded creepy, and I like me some creepy. It's adult though, not YA.

A shiny finished copy of this arrived, and I can't wait to read it!

My friend Lucy Christopher tells me this is amazing. She's usually always right, so I shall look forward to it.

I need to read this soon. Gillian's books are great!

I think this is technically adult, but one that could also be aimed at older teens. Sounds good. And dark.

Yay for YA horror!

I read the first one of these last year, and again thought it was okay. Great concept.

Everyone who attended the launch event was given a finished copy. It's so nice, and now signed by Will. Yay!

Oh how I love this series. And my quote's in the inside of this one again - woohoo!


Check out that cover! The book sounds ace too :D

I so need to catch up with this series. Pretty US edition though...

Ditto catching up with this one. I better get to it!

Happy reading guys!

Oh wow!! Love so many of these covers!
That Die For Me cover is gorgeous, and so is that cute autumn book I had never heard about. And OMG! You've never read Kelley? She's brilliant! <3 one of my favorite authors. And that cover looks a lot prettier than the weird blue US cover. I also like the green Dead Beautiful cover better than the US one I have, although I haven't read it either! Eager to know if you like it! :P

Liz said...

I keep hearing how good Clarity is. Maybe I'll have to try it out. I'm curious to hear how you like it!

Canadian Cat (ha!) said...

PLAIN KATE!! Read it, read it, read it!! Have tissues on hand because you will CRY. You will read it and you will tell me what you think as soon as you are done, you hear me?!

prophecygirl said...

Cat - Yes I certainly will! :D *salutes*

Vy said...

Can't wait to read your review of Die For Me! Super excited to get the book and hoping it won't disappoint.Great books!

Carla said...

How completely LUSH is Wood Angel in real life? And it is further proof that UK book cover designers are completely and totally frexing amazing.

And, TAKE A DEEP BREATH.........because guess what? WE GO TO LONDON TOMORROW!

Great haul. Some of these books look really good. One question though: How do you apply for Advanced Readers Copies in the UK?

Jesse Owen said...

Amazing books this week, I love the sound of Department 19 and Dead Beautiful sounds fab.

Bah, so jealous! The Gathering and Defiance look amazing, as do Clarity and Die For Me! Afterlife was great (I've got the paperback version though) and the Heavenly series too (still haven't read Absolution, but it's on my list). Happy reading!

The Library Owl said...

Wow, great books this week! Wood Angel, The Gathering, Defiance and Clarity are all high on my wish list. I just finished reading Afterlife today and thought it was a good end to the series. I hope you enjoy them all :)
