In My Mailbox #130: 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 had a GREAT week this week, for many reasons! I received lots of surprise books in the post, I went to London for a blogger's launch of new Orion imprint Indigo, I saw the new Harry Potter film at midnight, met Alyson Noel and sat on the Game of Thrones iron throne. Awesome!!


Here's what was in my mailbox this week:

For review:
Yay, I really enjoyed the first one of these!

I saw this at work and thought it sounded good. Then it arrived today!

Been looking forward to this one!

Yay! Dark Life was ace, and I'm quoted on the back of this one. Very cool.

I still need to read Nightshade so I better get a move on.

I didn't know much about this before it arrived but I'll give it a go.

This sounds fun and I like the cover.

Big Morris fan here so I can't wait to read this!

I will be starting this series very soon so I'm glad I have them all.

Again, I need to read Claire de Lune before I read this. Must catch up!

See above... I started Neversuch House but didn't get far back at the beginning of the year. Will go back to it soon.

These books are creepy!

I haven't read the first book in this series but it sounds pretty good.

I'm really excited about this one. I met Sara on Tuesday in London and she signed this for me. It sounds ace!

Another cool cover!

I'm very behind with the HoN series but I believe you can read this regardless.

YAY! I looove Marcus Sedgwick. He signed this for me on Tuesday, can't wait to read it.

This is a lovely paperback edition of one of my favourite 2011 books so far. And I'm quoted inside with some blogging friends (Carla!).

I really enjoyed The Spiderwick Chronicles when I read them the other week so my friend sent me these Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles books, as well as the Field Guide which is brilliant!

Another I didn't know much about but that sounds quite good.

I'm behind with this series too, but I will catch up. This cover is great, and I met Alyson on Friday in Manchester. She's lovely!

This sounds fun!

I'm looking forward to this, it's YA urban fantasy I think.

Bought:
I haven't read the A Song of Ice and Fire series yet but this was on offer at work so I bought it while I could. It's HUGE.

Read and loved this. Review here.

I bought this at Alyson's signing. Sounds good.

I needed to buy something to make it up to £15 with ADWD, so I got this (got both for £9.70. Can't argue with that!). It sounds pretty good and creepy/weird.




That's it from me this week. Happy reading everyone!
