In My Mailbox #47

I've had a slightly book week this time, but there are still a loooot of books I'm waiting for and I'm getting a bit worried since they still haven't arrived ... Anyway, let's focus on the positive and here's what *did* arrive in the past week:

ENCORE VALENTINE by Adriana Trigiani and PICTURES OF LILY by Paige Toon are review copies from Simon & Schuster UK (thank you!) - aren't these two covers just incredibly beautiful? I loooooove them and I'm so excited about these books, especially Pictures of Lily, woohoo!

PRETTY LITTLE MISTAKES by Heather McElhatton is a do-over novel, meaning you can choose your next step (so to speak), like a choose your adventure thing for adults, and the back cover says you can become a "homemaker, heartreaker, cake baker, drug taker" among other things, heh. I love the sound of it and I've actually just featured the author's book (written in the same style) in my latest WOW post.

I've been wanting to read THE PERFECT MAN by Sheila O'Flanagan since it came out last year, but I decided to wait for the paperback, which was finally published, yay! Sounds like the perfect summer read!

So that's it - awesome books, don't you think? :)

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else got!
