In My Mailbox #136: 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 some really exciting books in the post this week. I've heard lots of good stuff about Ashes and Virtuosity, so I hope I enjoy them as much as other people have. I also bought loads of Marvel graphic novels but I'm feeling too lazy to type all those up. I had a bit of an Amazon spending spree in celebration of Monday's bank holiday. Well, that's my excuse anyway ;)

Here are my new books this week! (Oh, and sorry for the bad pics. My camera's charging).


For review:
I need to read the first one of these, and soon!

Sounds cool and I've never read anything by this author. Will give it a go.

  • Pure by Julianna Baggott (UK proof/ARC)
Looking forward to this one, and love the shiny new proof!

  • Ashes by Ilsa Bick (UK proof/ARC)
Can't wait to read this one!

Also need to read Birthmarked...

Been looking forward to this one for a while. Hope it's good!

This sounds fun!

Yay, I love this series! *dances!*


These two films are possibly my favourites of the year so far, and these books are beautiful. It's really interesting to see the whole process of bringing these comic book heroes to life.

Saw this for £2.99 so obviously I bought it immediately!

This is going to keep me busy for a LONG time!

Saw this for £6.99 in one of my favourite shops: The Works. Same again on keeping me busy for a while.

Marcus Sedgwick recommended this book to me the other month. It sounds ace and right up my street.

Happy reading!

I just posted about Virtuosity this morning on my blog! It was a pretty nice read. I really liked the main character a lot.

Jealous of Prized.. I loved Birthmarked! I can't wait for that to come out in stores.

I shall now check out a few other of those titles to see what I might be interested in...

I love comparing UK covers to the North American Covers. I received Virtuosity about a month ago-haven't read it yet- but I am eager to get to it. I hope you enjoy.

Here's my mailbox for this week-->

Happy Reading!

I loved Avatar and The Art of Avatar should be something amazing no doubt. Eyeing your Ashes & Prized. Great set of books :)

Shelter is awesome! But then I'm a major fan of Harlan Coben's other books.

And Pure looks amazing! Hope you enjoy them all:)
