In My Mailbox #114: 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 brilliant 'cos I met many cool people and went book shopping in London. I love you Foyles! I bought great books, all of which I'm very excited to read. Same for the ones I received for review - all sound great!

Here are this week's new books:



For review:
I don't usually accept self-published books for review, but I've heard good things about this one. Thanks, Ramona!

Does this book have the longest title ever?! I think it does. It's been called 'Adrian Mole meets The Inbetweeners', so I'm sure I'll love it.

I liked the first book in this series, and I'm looking forward to what happens next. Also my review is quoted on the back of this proof which made my Thursday a happy day. Pic below.

Another UK debut novel coming later in the year. I'm really looking forward to reading this one, and the proof is signed! How cool is that?!

Bought:
I have heard nothing but good things about this book. I hope I like it as much as everyone else!

This just sounds brilliant. Full stop.

Another great cover for a Carrie Ryan book. Now I just need to catch up with the series.

This sounds fun, and I really like Abby's writing.

This anthology includes many of my favourite authors I saw it in Foyles and I had to buy it. I think I'll be dipping in soon!

I read this last week and absolutely loved it, so I had to buy a US hardcover copy. If you haven't read this yet, please do!

I saw this in Foyles, and it was a signed edition. Yay!

I already have the hardback of Infinite Days, but I bought this because I'm quoted in it (!), and that always makes me very very excited. It arrived at work and I was just flicking through it when I saw it. :D Also, this new paperback cover is lovely!



[I think I've only ever used the term 'kick-ass' a handful of times in my reviews. Maybe I should say it less. Hehe]



Happy reading everyone, and have a great week!

fab books - I totally agree about between shades of gray!

Kay (Dead Book Darling) said...

Oooh, Wither! It does look so very shiny - but I shall wait for your review before I splurge.

You did indeed have a kick-ass week *snorts*. I am totally down with every review you write using the words "kick-ass", especially if the books actually kick ass. :)

Vivienne said...

I saw your name and quote on the Blackwatch and thought it was fab. I can't wait to hear about Tom Clempson's book. I think it is going to be fab.
