In My Mailbox #134: 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 received so many exciting books this week that I just don't know where to start. Dark Inside, Naked and Dust and Decay are all high on my list to read soon, and I'm beyond ecstatic that my copy of Chain Reaction showed up from Amazon. What a week!

Here's what was in my mailbox:


For review:
I need to read The Haunted before I get to this one. Lovely cover though.

This sounds ace!

SO excited to read this - it's next up on my list!

  • Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan (UK proof/ARC)
Really looking forward to this one too!

Thanks to Keris for this! :)

I'm looking forward to seeing what I make of this one as I like Carrie's Need series.

Mary Hooper is excellent!

I've never read this book but I'll definitely give the graphic novel a go.

This also sounds very good. Looking forward to it.

I loved Ian's last book, Pastworld, so I'll be reading this one soon.

YAY! Rot and Ruin ROCKED!

  • Naked by Kevin Brooks (UK proof/ARC)
I'm a big Kevin Brooks fan and I've heard many good things about this one. Plus, the British punk scene is aces - what a great setting!



I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Inbetweeners. That is all.

Also loved The Eternal Ones and I have high hopes for this.

I read this the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it as always.

Ah, FNL. Please marry me.

Susie Day was raving about this one on Twitter, so I thought I'd investigate.

Happy reading, guys!

Wow that's a lot of books! So lucky, I'm dying to read the Hidden. Hope you enjoy all of them, Happy Reading! :)

I ordered All You Desire but it's going on a trip before I get it ;) It seems like everyone (except me) got After Obsession. I didn't care for Need, but curious as to maybe I would like this one.
I've had Glow for a few weeks and can't wait to get to it!
Great book week!

Great week! They all sound fab and I think I have Pretend you love me but mine is called Far from Xanadu? Or I could be completely wrong! Either way it looks great!
