In My Mailbox #159 & #160: 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!

Thanks to all publishers who sent me lovely books to review this week!

I had a blog tour last week so couldn't do IMM. For that reason, there's two week's worth here. 


IMM #159

For review:




The children's edition of The Book Thief was recently republished in the UK with a lovely new cover that I bought a couple of weeks ago. However, this first edition seems to have been completely replaced by it - I couldn't find it anywhere! My friend Clare at Random House tracked it down for me and sent it for my Book Thief collection. Thanks Clare!!


IMM #160

For review:



Bought on Kindle:
  • Dark Eden by Chris Beckett
  • But I Love Him by Amanda Grace



This Australian edition of The Book Thief is now my most treasured book possession. Markus sent it to me all the way from Sydney, and it arrived this week. He's signed the title page with a lovely dedication (I *almost* cried) and also sent a very nice card. I've already thanked him, but, well... THANK YOU. I haven't been able to stop staring at it yet, but maybe soon.

Happy reading, everyone!

Love your new Book Thief editions, I adore that book. It got me back into reading!! It's also the last book I shared with my nanny before her dementia progressed so it will always mean a lot to me. And both are so gorgeous. Always loved the Australian edition.

I WILL read The Book Thief! The finished copy of Dangerous Girls looks gorgeous - need to read it soon!
