In My Mailbox #123: 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!

Another great week with lots of cool surprises in the post. Some of my highly anticipated pre-orders also arrived and my name is in an Elizabeth Scott book. Not sure how I'll top this week! Also, Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' ROCKS. I've listened to nothing else all week. *dances* Are you guys fans? If yes, tell me your favourite new tracks!

Here's what was in my mailbox this week:

For review:
I've never read a Cornelia Funke book. How bad is that?

Quite liked the first book in this series. Looking forward to this one.

I haven't read the first of these books, so I might have to track that down before I read this one.

This looks SO creepy! Brilliant idea to incorporate real photos. *shudder*

Yay! I do like this series. Can't believe it's up to book 5 already though!

Sounds fun!

I've been looking forward to this one for months and I'm reading it now. So far so good.

I'm not keen on the Drake Chronicles, but this sounds good.

I love this UK cover. Really looking forward to reading it!

Been wanting to read this for ages too. Must get to it before the film comes out.

I haven't read the first Stonewylde book yet but it sounds ace. Great covers too.


Yay yay yay! A new EScott book is like an event for me. And my name is in the acknowledgements of this one... woohoo!!! Thanks Elizabeth. :)

I also have never read anything by Libba. Time to rectify that me thinks.

I have the UK edition of this (titled Angel) but wow do I hate the cover. However, I really like this US cover so I bought it. It's also hardback which is even better.

Read this one the other month and really liked it.

It was 3 for 2 at work so I got this. I've had a proof for a while so will be reading it soon.

Tom came in to WHSmith where I work and signed his books. He signed one for me too so obviously I bought it. Cheers Tom!

I love the cover and I'm intrigued as to what this book is actually about.


A very nice friend sent me this (thank you!). The 13 series is one of my favourites (like in my top 10, maybe top 5) and I looooove the US hardbacks. The covers are so beautiful! If you haven't read this series yet, get 13 Treasures NOW!

Have a great post-BEA week, everyone!

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

I just finished Haunting Violet this afternoon! I enjoyed it more than I thought I would when I started it. The ghosty mystery was quite fun.

AHHHHHH Ultraviolet & Forgotten! If only I had money! Gah! Those and Blood Magic are books I am lusting for right now. Forgot they pub'd this month!!

I had never heard of the Stonewyled series before and now I must know MORE!

BrittLit said...

YAY new Michelle Harrison and Elizabeth Scott! Beauty Queens sounds so great. Hope you love all of them Happy Reading!

Sab H. said...

You just made me want to go buy and read 13 Treasures! That cover is gorgeous!! Cant wait to read them now ;)

Book Passion for Life said...

Great IMM - I really loved Angel :) Can't wait to see what you think of Haunting Violet. Donna

Chelsey @ Starry Sky Books said...

So many awesome new books! Can't wait to see what you think of them. :)

Here's my IMM!

kirsty at the overflowing library said...

awesome books - soul beach looks fab!

Sabrina said...

Great mailbox, as always.

Your comment about "Angel Burn" made me lol, I also read and enjoyed the UK version (Angel) but the cover is so ugly so I'm thinking about buying the US version because the book deserves a pretty cover. The UK cover of the next book in the series is even worse :(

SusanKMann said...

wow that is a lot of books. I can't wait to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, it looks awesome and creepy x

Ryan said...

Wow Jenny! You always get such good books! Jack Sampsonite sounds brilliant can't way trot my copy to come from Amazon! Angel/Angel Burn is also very good! 13 Curses looks amazing! Nigh have to invest in the US Hardbacks! :D have a great week and happy reading dude!!

bookmonkeyscribbles said...

wow the 13 curses US cover looks so much better than the UK ones! I also have Haunting Violet to read so will be interested to see what you think of it!

TG said...

Wow, you have the paperback edition of Unearthly! That will be mine! (Uh, not your copy, obviously) I'm just very excited, because I didn't think it would be in paperback so soon and it means I will be able to afford in sooner rather than later.

Sally@Always Lost in Stories said...

Wow- I am so jealous over so many of these books! Great mailbox (again!) I'll look out for your review on Haunting Violet.

TheBookMogul said...

You got loads this week, I love the cover for Reckless it looks better then the hardback cover. I have quite a few of the books that you have left to read so I look forward to what you think of them.

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

I REALLY want to read Beauty Queens. And how awesome is it that your name is in an ES book?! :)

My keeper shelf said...

I really enjoyed Forgotten and Starcrossed hope you do too.


Raimy-rawr said...

great books this week! I also love the US cover of 13 Curses! its sooo pretty! :D x

The Slowest Bookworm said...

That is a totally awesome book week. Lots of pretty covers, but I really do love the US cover of 13. I thought the UK versions were pretty, but that one is totally gorgeous.

BooksforCompany said...

Great books!
Unearthly + Starcrossed are both great books so l hope you enjoy them =)
I can not wait to read Reckless and Haunting Violet!
Rather jealous of Forgotten!

Lori said...

I loved Unearthly!! And I love that cover! So pretty! I agree that Miss Peregrine looks creepy and awesome! I can't wait to read it.

Enjoy your books!

Amber Griffiths said...

I love Lady Gaga! My favourite song on the new album is "Edge of Glory". It's probably one of my favourite tracks of the year!
Great books! I received Reckless and Haunting Violet as well. They both sound like brilliant reads!
Beauty Queens also sounds brilliant - I'm so jealous that you have it!

Books of Amber

nlmars said...

Wow, what an awesome haul! I'm so jealous!
I'm waiting for Beauty Queens to come in the mail. So excited for that!
And I've recently read Angel Burn, and actually really liked it. Hope you do too. :)
Happy reading!

Check out what's in my mailbox! :)

wordslikesilver said...

Whoah I have an ARC of Ultraviolet, but I live in the US. Has Ultraviolet already come out in the UK?

bibliophile brouhaha said...

Seriously amazing amount and quantity of books - I've been wanting to read incarceration for a while myself!

-Linds, bibliophile brouhaha

Amy Jones said...

Awesome mailbox! I've never heard of the 13 series but I am definitely curious. Is this series similar in style to the Percy Jackson and Red Pyramid series? I just love Rick Riordan.

Here is my link:

Happy reading!

lisa [the nerd] said...

i've got Peculiar Children too! i'm so excited to check that out.

happy reading!

Cliona said...

Do you give me permission to steal your copy of the 13 Curses and Double-Cross? You do? Great then.

You lucky thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The US cover for the 13 Curses is probably my favourite cover of all time! It's so beautiful! I envy you. I envy you a lot, Jenny Davies.

leanne_luce : YA FOREVER said...

Amazing Books as always!! I am desperate to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children sounds pretty epic!

Also saw Ultraviolet yesterday and was intrigued, be good to know what you think of it!!!


Jesse Owen said...

Great books - I really need to read the 13 series (don't quite know how I haven't yet) and Diary of Lottery Winners Daughter sounds like fun.

Happy Reading :D

Book Sake said...

Haunting Violet and Unearthly are two that I really want to read. Lots of great books this week!

Our Mailbox is at BookSake.

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

SO many great looking books - Angel Burn looks fantastic and I have my eye on 13 Curses too!

Karis Jacobstein said...

Reckless is a great place to start! I liked it best of all of her books, and the illustrations are fabulous. The Tailor is on of the creepiest book characters ever.

I loved 13 Treasures and am so excited for 13 Curses!

Great haul!
