In My Mailbox #139: 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, including Diamonds and Doom! Yay! I also got addicted to Downton Abbey and watched Series 1 just in time for the new series starting tonight. All in all, it's been an excellent week!

Here's what was in my mailbox:

For review:
YAY!! I love love love this series, but I'm sad this is the end.

I read, reviewed and enjoyed this one when I first read it in hardback. Great music-themed book.

  • Pure by Julianna Baggott (UK proof/ARC)
I think this is now my third proof copy of Pure. Better read it soon.

  • Sweetly by Jackson Pearce (UK proof/ARC)
Looking forward to this one!

I had never heard of this until it arrived but it sounds right up my street.

Already read and reviewed this one, and of course loved it. I keep all the paperbacks too though.

Looking forward to finally getting to this one too.

This was a nice unexpected surprise!

Sounds fun!

I read this one almost 3 years ago and am glad to see it now published in the UK!

I already read this months ago and it's one of my favourite contemporaries of recent years. I, along with some other bloggers, am quoted in this proof too. Ace!

Bought:
I love Sophie Kinsella's books but have never tried these ones. The boxset was £5 - bargain!

As I mentioned above, I got addicted to this show this week. The companion book is fantastic.

This looks like my kind of thing, and Pete Williamson has done the illustrations. Double cool!

Just had to complete the Raven Mysteries collection. :D





Happy reading everyone!

I really want to read The Warrior Heir. I think it will have to wait until payday though. I seem to be have been treating myself far too much this month but I mainly bought adult fiction. (Oh and I got the car serviced too. Boring!)

Ooh, so many great books this week! Pure and Envy look especially good so I'll be looking forward to seeing your thoughts on them. Oh, and I've heard lots of good things about Sophie Kinsella's Madeleine Wickham books before so I hope you enjoy them as well. Happy reading! :)

Sweetly sounds awesome and I think I'll have to try and track down the Madeleine Wickham boxset - bargain and I haven't read those ones yet.

Hope you enjoy:)

Great week! I really want to read Cinda Williams Chima stuff at the moment, in a massive fantasy craving mood and I think her stuff would hit the spot.
