"In My Mailbox" was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren. This is something I started blogging about last week and have now decided that it will be a weekly feature (posted on Sundays) where I will let you know what books I've picked up in the week!
First up is "The Line" by Teri Hall. I'd been interested in this book for a while now and was dissapointed to find out that it wasn't stocked in any of the UK bookshops. Waterstones told me it was because it had no UK rights. Therefore, I bought it from Amazon and it arrived shortly after the release date!
I LOVE the cover for this next book, "The Dark Divine" by Bree Despain. I actually bought this book a while ago but won another copy in a recent contest! YAY! Now I can give this to my best book pal who hasn't got a copy of it. Heard good things about the book and I believe a sequel is now on its way.
I tell everyone that when I get ARC's or review copies, I will always BUY the book if I like it. Just to prove my point, I recieved an ARC of "Hourglass" by Claudia Gray a little while back and reviewed it here on the blog (if you haven't read my review, why on earth not?! And what are you waiting for, go find it now! Go!). Basically I LOVED it and so I had to have a nice hardback to go with the others.
I am currently on an ARC tour for "Rising Shadow" by Jacquelyn Wheeler. It looks really good (the synopsis sounds interesting) but I've had such a hectic week at work that I have barely had a chance to start reading yet! I'm hoping to get an extension before I have to send it on to the next reviewer!
I also received "Forget Her Nots" by the very lovely Amy Brecount White (thanks for following Amy!) I've been really keen to read this book as I think the premise is quite unique and beautiful. I was very lucky to have won this in a contest so I got some bookmarks and postcards too! YAY! Looking forward to reading this :)
Last but not least is "Hex Hall" by Rachel Hawkins. Heard LOADS about this book and I thought it sounded really good! I don't think it's officially been released in the UK yet but that never stops me! I went with the US instead of the UK cover art for the simple reason that I prefer the US version.
Look out for future reviews on all these books (except Hourglass as I've already written it).
