In My Mailbox #48

Wow, I've had a fantastic book week - I got seven books and bought only one of those whereas the rest were sent for review, how amazing is that?! I've never had anything like this happen before - it's usually the other way around, i.e. I always buy more books than I get for review!

Sooo let's get down to business, shall we?
Firstly, here are the adult books I got ...

  • SAINTS v SINNERS by Katie Agnew was sent from Orion and I just loooove the cover, it's really eye-catching and the book sounds like a fab bonkbuster - perfect for the summer!
  • MY NAME IS MEMORY by Ann Brashers arrived for review from Hodder - I've heard so many great things about this one and I can't wait to read it! It's just been published actually so I'm hoping to review it soon!
  • SECOND HAND HEART by Catherine Ryan Hyde was sent by Transworld and I was sooo happy to receive a copy since the book doesn't come out until September! I've featured it in my WOW post a couple of weeks ago and quite a few of you agreed that it sounds like a very interesting read. :)
  • SUFFRAGETTE GIRL by Margaret Dickinson is the book I couldn't help buying as soon as I saw it. I'm quite fascinated by the suffragettes and very eager to read everything that's been written about them (so far I've reviewed Falling Angels by Tracy Chevalier and Crooked Pieces by Sarah Glazebrook, but I have a couple more books to read).
And here are the YA books I got:

  • DON'T KNOW WHERE, DON'T KNOW WHEN by Annette Laing was kindly sent to me by the author herself and it sounds like a fantastic time-travelling adventure that takes place in modern times as well as in Wartime England - very excting!
  • DEAR DYLAN by Siobhan Curham was also kindly sent to me by the author and based on the reviews I've read recently, I expect great things from it! It's written in emails between a young girl and her idol, an actor, and people say they were quite surpised by how this novel turned out and what an impact in had on them so I can't wait to see what it has in store for me, heh.
  • WORLD CUP WAGS by Anonymous is the third and last installment of the WAGS' WORLD series, which I've read recently and reviewed here. I loved the first two books and I expect this one to be just as awesome. In fact, I'm off to start reading it right now, if you'll excuse me. ;)

Lastly, I'd like to thank all the lovely authors and publishers who have kindly sent me such amazing books and I hope to have the reviews up asap!

Hope you've all had a great book week too!
Have a great weekend, everyone! :)

Great week. Seems to be a nice mix of adult and YA books. "My name is Memory" and "Second Hand Heart" look especially good.

I recently moved my blog to a new url and would love to welcome you at my new home.

All of them sound great! Saints v Sinners doesn't sound anything like you would imagine, judging by the cover. Second Hand Heart looks especially good.

Hope you enjoy your reads!
