In My Mailbox #141: 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 had an amazing week this week! I spent two days in London, met Christopher Paolini 3 times, visited various publisher friends and received many exciting books. It'll be hard to top this week for a while! I'm also glad to say I think I'm finally out of my reading slump. This calls for a Snoopy Dance a la Xander Harris!

Here's what was in my mailbox (and my trusty S&S tote bag) this week:


For review:
This sounds funny and is illustrated by the brilliant Pete Williamson!

  • Eve by Anna Carey
Love the sound of this!

I am a HUGE Gemma Malley fan. Can't wait to read this.

I've heard really good things about this one.

I've been waiting for this for AGES. I'm sure it will be hilarious!

I enjoyed the first book in this series and am looking forward to the sequel.

I think this is a dystopian thriller. Sounds good and great cover!

I had heard nothing about this until Hodder gave me a copy. Looks intriguing.

Duplicate copy which will be going to a good home.

  • Fever by Lauren DeStefano (US ARC)
I still need to read Wither!

Another series I enjoy - hope this one's as good.

This will also be going to a good home as I have a US hardback already.

A lovely paperback edition of this brilliant book. And I'm quoted on the inside back cover!

This sounds GREAT!

Another book about Titanic. Really looking forward to reading it.

Reading this at the moment and really enjoying it. I love Lisa McMann.

Sounds ace!

  • Advent by James Treadwell (UK proof/ARC)
This is another I'd heard nothing about, but it sounds SO GOOD.

If the book is as good as the cover, I think I'm in for a treat!

Sam at Headline basically sold this to me in 2 sentences. She's good, she is. It's a pretty proof copy too.


This came in at work and ended up costing me about £6. Not bad at all.

I went to The Cinema Store in London and found these two gems. They're both AMAZING.

Something about this book just keeps calling to me, and I think it's the overall look of it. Basically I just need this book on my bookshelf.

It's The Inbetweeners. It's hilarious. What more can I say?

Happy reading, everyone!

Oh my goodness! Such an amazing mailbox... your Fever ARC looks so pretty! :)

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Mind blowing mailbox! From the whole list I'd love to get my hands on Kenneth Oppel and Daniel Polansky's books plus The Night Circus. You might have heard of The Straight Razor Cure as Low Town which is US name of the book. Enjoy your reading!

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

I might have to launch some sort of coups to steal your arc of Fever!! How have you not read Wither yet? Get on that woman!!!

So many other things on this post I want to steal, too. Hmm.

BrittLit said...

Wow. Completely lovely books this week. I would have no idea where to begin, there are really so many amazing titles in that stack. Happy Reading!

Bella said...

You have a Fever ARC?! I want, I want! ;) You HAVE to read Wither soon - it's AMAZING, and Fever looks just as good! Happy reading!

Bungle said...

I got The 13th Horseman a week or so ago, also looking forward to this one.
I have Night Circus put aside in work, it's my birthday on Wednesday so it will be my birthday present to myself :)

Happy reading!

TG said...

I haven't even read Wither yet myself and I'm still excited to see someone with Fever. You lucky thing, you!

Congratulations on getting a quote in My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece. You deserve it - you've really talked up this book and made me want to read it.

I agree that the Night Circus is a book you want to have on your shelf. Those black-edged pages? Gorgeous.

Cicely said...

You have Fever?! I'm so jealous! And The Night Circus is soo pretty. Eve and Variant look great too :) Happy reading!

Cliona said...

WOAH! You got amazing books! I'm not even going to name the ones In jealous of!

Great books this week! I love that cover for The Snow Child. I hope you enjoy them all :)

I Want To Read That said...

WOW! Ace week! How on earth will you choose what to read first? And there are soooo many there I absolutely can't wait to read!

Hope you enjoy - and Yay! So glad you are over your reading slump:)

I love Lisa McMann, I really want to read her next one.

The Killables sounds interesting, and I'd love to read a summary of When You Were Mine.
