In My Mailbox #135: 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 very out of the blogging loop this week as I went to Bath for 3 days with my friend. We visited the Jane Austen Centre, the almost 2000-year-old Roman Baths (which were AMAZING - pic above!), Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent and lots of other random places. I came home to a huge pile of books waiting for me, most of which I can't wait to read.

Here's what was waiting for me this week:

For review:
  • Fury by Elizabeth Miles
A LOVELY finished copy. It looks amazing! I'll be posting my review this week.

This is a fun book!

Can't wait to read this!

These are all part of a new series of novels for teen girls. Looking forward to them!

This also sounds right up my street!

This was a nice surprise - really looking forward to this one.

I've never heard of this but it sounds like a powerful read.

I enjoyed Bright Young Things, so hopefully I'll like this one too.

I still need to read Angel...

Another one that sounds like an important book.

Duplicate copy - my local school library will be having this one.

A very nice finished copy, and the first title from the Indigo imprint!

This paperback looks aces and I'll be reading it soon(ish).

Duplicate copy. I'm reading this at the moment and enjoying it so far.

I already have a copy of this from when I visited Alnwick Castle for the launch. Will be reading soon.

Looking forward to starting this series!

Bought:
I saw this as soon as I got to Bath for £5. Needless to say I grabbed it and hauled it home!

I love this show and I saw this in HMV, also for £5. I'm seeing the movie today - can't wait!!

Won:
I won this from one of Waterstone's Deansgate's Twitter giveaways (@wsdeansgate). I'm reading it at the moment - yay!)






Happy reading, everyone!
