In My Mailbox #33

Hey, everyone, and welcome to another installment of IMM (hosted by TSS). I'm happy to say that some of the books I've been waiting for have finally arrived, yay! Here are the lovely books I received in the past week - a great mix of chick lit, YA and historical books:



Firstly, DAUGHTERS OF FORTUNE by Tara Hyland - I've been excited about this book ever since I first heard of it and now it's finally arrived and it looks even more stunning in person! So elegant and posh, I love it! I'd like to thank Tara and Ally from S&S for sending me this for review, I cannot wait to read this one!

I also bought a hardcover copy of I WAS JANE AUSTEN'S BEST FRIEND by Corra Harrison, which looks adorable both inside and out - the cover so pretty and it even has all these cute illustrations inside, yay!

I ordered THE GYPSY CROWN by Kate Forsyth after I read & loved The Puzzle Ring, which made me want to read more by this wonderful author so I bought this one. It also has a great cover and I hope it's just as good as The Puzzle Ring!

I pre-ordered LOVE LETTERS by Katie Fforde a while ago as it sounded like a great read, but I was waiting for the paperback to come out. I've heard great things about Ms Fforde's books but I haven't read any myself so I hope Love Letters is a good one to start!

THE COUNTERFEIT GUEST by Rose Melikan is the sequel to The Blackstone Key (gorgeous cover!), which I bought ages ago, but still haven't read as I'm waiting for all three books to come out in paperback. This historical series sounds fantastic though and I really can't wait to start reading it!

That's it from me! Can't we to see what everyone else got! Isn't IMM like the best meme ever? :) Have a great weekend, everyone!

Jane Austen's best friend really is a gorgeous cover. I'm so visual I feel bad for judging books by their covers but I can't help it lol.

Hope you enjoy these! :D

Good books this week! What really got my attention was Jane Austen's best friend. I'm an austen fan. The Gypsy Crown as a nice over. It looks really interesting.

The cover for the Gypsey Crown is gorgeous! i've not read The Puzzle Ring, though, it sounds like it'd be a fun read.

Fab books this week, hope you gobble them all up. yum yum

I nearly bought I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend this week, but then I decided I should read a bunch of reviews first. I'll look forward to yours!

Love the sound of The Gypsy Crown too. Hope you enjoy.
