In my Mailbox (57)

Thank you as always to Kristi www.thestoryiren.com for hosting IMM


I had an awesome book week this week



The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (UK paperback)
I found this in The Works in Cambridge . I love that shop.

Soul Beach by Kate Harrison (UK signed proof)
Abandon by Meg Cabot (UK proof)
Dark parties by Sara Grant (UK signed proof)
White Cat by Holly Black (UK paperback)
Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick (Bound manuscript)
the selection below came from Nina at Orion. They are all new releases for the new YA imprint Indigo which is launching in September. All the books they have lined up look awesome.

Fury by Elizabeth Miles (UK paperback) 
Passed onto me by Sarah as she didn't get on with it.

Evermore by Alyson Noel books 1 - 6 (Signed UK paperbacks)
A fab late birthday surprise from Macmillan along with a tote bag and a TShirt.

Lottie biggs is (not) tragic by Hayley Long (UK paperback)
I've not read this series - any bloggers that are UK based and willing to guest review it for me let me know.


The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood (UK paperback)
Nightshade by Maryrose Wood (UK paperback)
The Poison Diaires by The Duchess of Northumberland (UK hardback) 
I got these three during my epic stay at Hogwarts Alnwick Castle. I had such an awesome time - come back later in the week for a post on it but as a very short summary the highlights included: staying the night at the Castle, Having afternoon tea with the Duchess of Northumberland in the state dining room and having Dinner in a Tree House!

Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink (UK paperback)
Hades by Alexandra Adornetto (UK paperback) 
I also got a lovely little package from Atom this week which are always awesome.

Yeah, it seems like lots of people haven't taken to FURY.

What a cool surprise from Macmillan! The covers look beautiful when together like that.

This is the first time I'm seeing the UK Dark Parties (which will probably also be the AU cover when/if it comes along here, I don't know what publisher is publishing it over there in UK). It looks really pretty and definitely appeals more than the US cover.

And The Poison Diaries!!! I need to get my copy of Nightshade.

Happy reading!

I love the UK cover of White Cat! I haven't tried Fury as it didn't completely grab me either, but now I'm curious to see what you'll think of it.

Wow! What a great week for you!

I can never find anything decent in The Works at all, so I'm impressed that you found the Iron King - I've wanted to read that one for a while.

Macmillan must love you to send you all those goodies!
