In My Mailbox #128: 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've been off work on holiday this week,as it was the second week of Wimbledon and I have the same week off every year so I can watch it. I haven't done much reading, but I have finally read the whole Spiderwick Chronicles series which I really enjoyed. No idea what took me so long, actually. Some exciting books arrived this week (Liesl and Po!) which I can't wait to get stuck in to!

Oh, and everyone go and wish Carla a happy 25th birthday for yesterday! :)


For review:
This book is AMAZING. Review coming soon.

I've never been a big Roald Dahl fan, but I might give this a go as I haven't read it for many years. It's a really nice illustrated edition to mark the 50th anniversary.

Yay, a new Keren book! I'm two thirds of the way through and loving it.

I was lost for words when I opened this - excitement got the better of me. And it came with a cut-out theatre set! (You can see it above). Brilliant. Can't wait to read it.

I haven't read any of this series but I like the covers. Super shiny!

Second copy. I might give this one away this month sometime.

A nice paperback edition of this, which I still haven't read. Now I've got no excuse.

I have this in hardback but haven't read it yet. Another one to move up the pile.

  • Legend by Marie Lu (UK proof/ARC)
Very excited to read this one. Puffin are publishing it in December!


I couldn't go to the Puffin author party in London this week so my friend Sarah gave me one of the classic editions from the goodie bags. It's lovely!

Happy reading, everyone!
