In My Mailbox #127: 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 didn't think I'd be getting many books this week, but then I had two huge deliveries which included lots of cool-looking surprises! I also went to see Glee Live this week which was so, so good. I saw Darren Criss on stage, people: my life is almost complete!!


And here are the books I got this week:

For review:
This one sounds fun!

I've never read a Karin Slaughter book but I might give this one a go one day.

Such a lovely book - a hardback proof! I need to get cracking and read I Am Number Four.

These sounds like great books for younger readers.

I'm interested to read this one as it sounds like an exciting thriller!

Second copy. Will be going to the local school library. :)

I think this one could be really funny, and I do occasionally read adult rom-coms. Another complete surprise in the post!

My friendly neighbourhood book fairy sent me this as I've never read them and I like fantastical creatures. Thanks K, you rock!

I love the sound of this one. Yay Egmont!

This is the fourth book in the Young, Loaded and Fabulous series. It's like a UK Gossip Girl which is ace!

Never heard of this one but it sounds good!

Another one I've never heard of. Think this could be one for my mum.

Melvin Burgess!!! That is all.

I still need to read Firebrand, which I hear is amazing. I'm so very behind!

Bought:
Everyone has been raving about this. I hope it lives up to the hype!

I'm quoted in this and Curtis mentions me and my blog in the acknowledgements. Wow!!

I just bought this to complete my collection, even though I'm pretty behind on this series. I'll read it eventually, I'm sure.



Happy reading everyone!

Okay... now I'm really jealous. I want 'The Power of Six' too! I really liked 'I Am Number Four', so I've got to read the sequel! :D

You saw Darren Criss? So jealous! I've loved him from his A Very Potter Musical Days :). And great books this week - Girl Parts is supposed to be really good and you got Everlasting! I love that cover. Happy reading :).

OMG I heart Darren Criss! One of my fave glee characters and I love his voice.

Really need to get my hands on a copy of The Power of Six. Hearted the movie and the book!

SO COOL that you got to see Glee Live! I'd imagine that Daren Criss was just as amazing in RL!

Loads of books up there that I haven't heard of. I didn't realise I am Number Four already had a sequel in the works... saw the film and wasn't overwhelmed. I think I'll wait for you to read it first!

Ellie said...

I'm looking forward to Fallen but I do think her writing works best when read in order as the characters develop over several books.

Amy @ Turn the Page said...

Lots of great books! Im really intrigued by Girl Parts! Though it does sound a little disturbing lol!

Enjoy!

Wow looks like you got some great books you weren't expecting :) I would like to read Girl Parts (does sound fun. Not sure what its about though) and what is I'll be there about? Looks good though. Have fun reading all those great books.

Alison said...

Great set! The Jack Splat books sound adorable. I really want to read the Spiderwick Chronicles.

You really need to pick Firebrand off your shelves and read it today. I'm rereading it. I love it even more (if that's possible) the second time around. I got Bloodstone too. There may have a very over-excited Bookette!

I really need you to read We Can Be Heroes so you can tell me if I will love it. :-)

Cliona said...

Would love to read The Immortals, they look great. I'm going to see Glee next week *screams and does happy dance*

Lauren B said...

I've only read one of Karin Slaughter's books - Blindsighted - but it was really good. i have to look into getting others.
