In My Mailbox #44

As you all know, IMM is hosted by The Story Siren and here are the books I received in the past week ...

FOR REVIEW:


  • THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE by Jandy Nelson (Thank you, Walker Books!) - This is the UK edition, which comes out soon (June 7th!), and it literally looks amazing with the elastic band and different format and all the pictures etc. inside, it's quite special (more in my review). I expect the inside to be just as unique - look out for my review soon!
  • ALL THAT MULLARKEY by Sue Moorcroft (Thank you, Choc Lit Publishing!) - I love the sound of this one and the cover is so pretty! Can't wait to read it!
  • THINGS I WISH I'D KNOWN by Linda Green (Thank you, Headline!) - I was instantly hooked by the great premise of this one, but I'm a tad worried I won't get all the 80s references, seeing how I was born in 1985 and have absolutely no recollection of that decade, lol. I'm sure I'll enjoy it regardless seeing how I've heard nothing but praise soon far! Oh and this book arrived with a fab 80s-themed press release, yay!
BOUGHT:


  • THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE DUMPED by Jenny Colgan - I've seen mixed reviews about this one, but I'm still very excited about it, seeing how I absolutely loved my previous Jenny Colgan reads. Oh and Amazon has the next Jenny Colgan book listed as The Cupcake Cafe, but on Twitter Jenny said it'll actually be called Welcome to the Cupcake Cafe or Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe - how totally AMAZING are these titles?! I'm already in love! And can you just imagine how cute the cover will be! :D Can't wait!!
  • GIMME A CALL by Sarah Mlynowski - This is the UK edition and I think it's much prettier than the US one, plus it's in paperback, yay.
Hope you all had a great book week as well!
Oh and those of you who are attending BEA - have fuuuuun and don't forget to take a lot of photos and post a full report on your blog when you get back!
Happy reading, everyone! :)

ps: Don't forget to enter my contest to win a copy of DELLA SAYS: OMG! - it's international and it ends on May 31st!

Looking forward to your reviews of "Things I wish I'd known" and "The Good, The Bad and The Dumped"..I've ordered both a long long time ago and they still haven't arrived! So I'm thinking of saving them until the holidays...beach-reading.

I agree with you about The Sky is Everywhere - it's honestly one of the nicest books I've seen. The presentation is amazing.

I also can't wait to see what you think of Gimme a Call. You've just reminded me that I need to get that one ;)

Have a great week! :)

Nice new reads! Everything has such a pretty cover too! I think I like the cover for Gimmie A Call for the UK better than the US!

I just finished my copy of The Sky is Everywhere (courtesy of Walker) and the emotive narrative is really something special. It is a beautiful book. I don't know what I was expecting, but I read it in ONE sitting. Started it and finished it without getting up once! Very poetic. Hope you enjoy!
