In My Mailbox #125: 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!

I'm very late posting this week's IMM because I was out late seeing Take That last night and had a blog tour to post today. Anyway, here it is! I've wanted to see Take That with Robbie since I was 5 or 6 years old in 1993, and this was the first time they've all toured together since 1995 I think. One more thing I can tick off the life to do list! They were AMAZING.

Now onto the books!


For review:
I really like B. R. Collins' books so I hope this new one is good!

I've never read any of Mary's books so I'm looking forward to giving this one a go.

I read the trade paperback last year, and Walker have quoted me in the paperback along with some other UK bloggers. Very cool! My review is here.

Never heard of this one before but it sounds good.

  • Epic by Conor Kostick
  • Saga by Conor Kostick
  • Edda by Conor Kostick
This is another series I'd never heard of before this week. It sounds brilliant though, and I love the covers, especially Edda!

I already have a copy of this so this one will be going to a good home. Sounds like a hard-hitting read.

Half-mermaid! Cool!

I just finished this and enjoyed it. It's kind of a detective story with a great MC.

Looking forward to reading this!

I'm noticing a bit of a trend with YA books about heart transplants. I got another for review last week!

This is my third copy of this (hardcover, proof, paperback) so I really will have to read it soon. I think it will be good but a bit sad.

Love the sound of this one!

Great cover - very Arthurian. Hope it's a good read.


This was £5 and is similar to the Vampires book I have. I can never resist a book about supernatural creatures, although wolves aren't my favourite. ;)

I love the cover and sound of this one. I first heard about the US edition over at Steph's blog.

I never bought the hardcover of this so waited for the cool paperback (with lots of blogger quotes on the back!).

Saw this for £4 yesterday and thought why not!

I think I've already mentioned my teeny tiny (ha!) obsession with the Game of Thrones TV show. I LOVE IT. Can't wait to read the books, I'm so so excited. And this is a nice US boxset which means I don't have to crease the nicely bound spines. :D

Hope you all had a great week! Happy reading!

Ah! Take That! I really wanted to see them, I love them so much. Glad you enjoyed it :). As for the books, I like the sound of The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June, and The Lover's Dictionary sounds good too. Happy reading!

Sally said...

OMG Take That! You are so lucky I have loved them since I was a kid too.
Great books this week.
Happy reading.

I've been wanting to read The Radleys for a while. How the Light Gets In does look good - that cover is so similar to the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks cover:

HL cover

BTW, I got the heads up from your previous IMM that Unearthly was out in paperback, so thanks for that.

Lots of great books this week! I've been really curious about Brother/Sister so I'll be looking forward to your review for it. I adored Tempest Rising and The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June so I hope you do too. Happy reading! :)

Game of Thrones Game of Thrones Game of Throoooones!

My original copy of Storm of Swords literally fell apart in the middle of a Jaime chapter from over-reading (or maybe from gripping it too hard with all the tension) and the first two books, let's just say, well loved. Hope you enjoy them!

Chrystal said...

WOW! Great IMM!

The Radleys and Half Brother look interesting. :)
