In My Mailbox #126: 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 for books! The rest of my June pre-orders arrived, as well as some exciting surprises in the post. I'm looking forward to reading all of them - I can honestly say that every single one looks or sounds brilliant!

For review:
I haven't read the first in this series but I've good things!

This sounds really creepy and dark. Looking forward to it.

I haven't the read the first (Mercy) in this series either, but I do have it. I'll rectify that soon.

YAY!!! What a great surprise. Can't wait to dig in to this one.

  • Edda by Conor Kostick
A second copy which will be going to a good home. Great cover, eh?

I'm reading this at the moment and enjoying it, though I do have a few problems with the timeline and show continuity.

This sounds good and quite similar to Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall.

Hot cowboys! Texas! I'm in.

I really like this series and was even more excited to get this one as I noticed I'm quoted on the back and on the inside cover. SO COOL.


I hear this one is good for fans of Gossip Girl. Which I am. :D

Bought:
This sounds amazing and I love the cover. So pretty and velvety!

Another one that sounds like it'll be a great read. Dystopian too!

I thought this was a contemporary, but I've recently heard other things. I'm interested to see what it's actually about. Lovely cover too.




Happy reading and have a great week!

You're quoted on practically every book I pick up! I bought Here Lies Bridget last week, I read the galley last year and thought it was pretty good. :)

awesome books this week, you have a lot of reading to do!

Especially yay for Texas Gothic...I'm really looking forward to that one! I loved The Splendor Falls.

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

I can no longer look over your IMMs and drool and add things from the UK to my wishlist since the Book Depository seems to have made ALL UK editions unavailable for me now. Which is a real bummer. So many books I can't order that I have been waiting for. Sigh. I'd go Amazon but I don't want to pay for shipping!!

Congrats on your quote, lady!! So cool :)

And OoOo Imaginary Girls! I almost bought that this week, but decided to wait until my TBR pile goes down a bit. I can't wait to see your thoughts on it!

Great IMM! I'm so glad Texas Gothic is coming out in paperback, I've been dying to read it for ages!

Amy @ Turn the Page said...

Book Angel Emma said...

Fantastic books as always. The Celebriteens looks fun - I shall keep an eye out for your review to see if it would be good in the library.
Your reviews always add to the library wish-list if you hadn't noticed lol.
Have a great week :D

Vicki said...

I have Hourglass on it's way and I so can not wait. Especially excited now about the velvetty cover *imagines much stroking*

prettybooks said...

I saw a review saying Imaginary Girls wasn't contemporary too. I just thought contemporary fiction was anything written after 1945? I decided to Google it after reading your IMM and can't find any definition!

But, basically, they use mobile phones in Imaginary Girls so I can't see why it's not contemporary!

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

I really want to read Hourglass and Imaginary Girls and I just started Here Lies Bridget and I'm really enjoying it. Though it is really like Before I Fall.

Nikki-ann said...

I haven't read any of those books, but they do look and sound good! :)

Enjoy them!

We have good times and we have slow times Puppies and dogs, as mentioned, are social creatures Similarly, check with the appropriate state Sex Offender Registries (most state's now have free on-line checks available) The one thing they had in common besides money was the feeling that they were totally unfulfilled
Peoples fears to do a partnership business coz bad history, It is also true that two minds can work much better than one (but only when both intellect matches as a blue print) Just when you believed having a puppy was simpler than an infant, he'll learn to pull those cupboard doors open! Think about installing locks or "child-proof" devicesMany of you may have at least come to believe that this is true for overt behaviors, but still struggle with applying it to thoughts
