In My Mailbox #131: 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 this week - SO many good books that I can't wait to read! Also, let it be known that my blogging friends are the best! :)

Here's what was in my mailbox this week:

For review:
  • Between by Jessica Warman (UK proof/ARC)
This sounds great - it's been called 'The Lovely Bones for teenagers'!

Now *this* is exciting! Thanks to Penguin USA for shipping it all the way here!

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

These sound like The Famous Five so I'm really looking forward to reading them!

I need to read Linger...

I started this and didn't get very far. I loved Genesis but this is very different and I couldn't get into it at all. I might come back to it sometime.

I need to read the first one in this series too!

This looks kooky. Hope it's as funny as it sounds!

This was a nice surprise - yay angels!

I love these new paperback editions - they have coloured page edges!!

Read this the other day and it was brilliant. Suzanne is a fantastic writer.

Bought:
I like Lauren's other books so fingers crossed I like this one too.

Another book to add to the undead collection!

Lovestruck Summer was one of the best books I read in 2009, and I can't wait to read this!

I read Skellig this week: it's a lovely book. I look forward to My Name is Mina!

I've read this but I buy this series in paperback so I had to buy a copy. It was half price though so not too bad.

Gifts:
The lovely Sab from YA Bliss sent me these. The Dessen is... wait for it... SIGNED!!! Ahhhhh! It says my name and everything. I did a dance when it arrived and I think my dad thought I'd gone mad! The Always War sounds good too, so a big thanks for that!



My Canadian BFF Cat from Beyond Books for this book for me, because it was only published in Canada and also cos she's the awesomest. Thank you, Cat! :D




Happy reading!

Between and Once Every Never both sound great, I really want to read them! And I loved The Truth About Forever, it's one of my favourite Dessen books :). Happy reading!

Cat the Canadian BFF said...

Those Eragon books are so pretty! I read the first and second and then waited forever for 3 to come out in pb. Only now I don't recall what happened in the first two. =

So happy the OEN got there so fast. I guess airmail is worth the cost. It might still be on a boat somewhere if I sent it surface. By the time you got it it might have been out there by then. hehehe So happy I could send you this! As always, let me know if there's anything here you're trying to get!
