In My Mailbox #50

Wow, I can't believe this is my 50th installment of In My Mailbox (hosted weekly by The Story Siren)! It seems like I just started doing this yesterday, but I guess this shows I've been around for quite a while now, heh ...

Anyway, I got an incredible bunch of books this week and I'm so excited to share them with you all! Here they are in all their beautiful glory ...

FOR REVIEW

OMG, I've been waiting for these two for too long so no wonder I was over the moon when they arrived! :D
BOUGHT - part 1

I ordered all these on the Amazon UK marketplace (there was no other way as most of these titles are sold out) and sent to the awesome Luisa Plaja, who kindly agreed to collect them and send them to me - isn't she just the most amazing person ever?! :) Thanks a million, Luisa!
  • WISH UPON A STAR by Olivia Goldsmith is a title I came across on Novelicious a while ago and just had to have it, it sounds like a great read!
  • I learned about A HIDDEN LIFE by Adele Geras in a bookshop in Sardinia, but I didn't buy it as I thought I'll just order it online when I get home - where, to my utter horror, I realized that the book was sold out, eek! Well, now I got my hands on a copy and this one has an even prettier copy than the one I saw in person, yay!
  • LOSING IT by Sandy McKay came to my attention recently and I just ordered it immediately as it sounded just like my cup of tea. Not the most cheerful read, but sometimes I just crave poignancy over cuteness.
  • Last but definitely not least, I got a copy of CLUELESS by H. B. Gilmour, a book based on *the* film! Hands up who loves this awesome movie classic?! :) Yeah, me too and that's why I was so excited when I found out there was a book too, whoop whoop!
BOUGHT - part 2

Phew! So yeah, that's it from me - can't wait to hear what you all got! :)

Novelicious said...

You bought loads! So glad you got WISH UPON A STAR - one of my all time faves. So charming and escapist. Let me know what you think! xx

Luisa Plaja said...

Yay! So many wonderful books! (And thank you for giving me the opportunity to be the bearer of good books! :) )

I'm dying to read all about what you think of all these! (And I loved A Little Wanting Song SO much!)

LOVE the first cover. I totally want that dress.

What a great week! I'm reading Alice Love very soon, so it's good to hear you enjoyed it. :) Also can't wait to hear what you think of Fortune, Tweet Heart and A Little Wanting Song. Fab!

Enjoy!

The Liberation of Alice Love looks really good. Unfortunately it isn't available in the States. I really like the Gallagher Girls series. I've read the first three books but haven't got Only the Good Spy Young yet.

Lots of great books! I really liked Single In The City so hope you do too, a good light hearted read! Leah loved Abby McDonald's book too so you're in for a treat with those two! xx

Wow, I don't even know where to start! Those all look like excellent books. I'll be waiting for some reviews!

Wow! You did really well this week :-)

Single in the City sounds like fun and I really like the sound of A Hidden Life.

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

I'd tell You... is really good and I'm reading Fortune at the moment: addictive! I read Wish Upon a Star years ago and really enjoyed it. Happy reading!

Fab book week. I really want to read Losing IT. Happy Reading :D

Nina said...

Lots of great books. I can't wait to read your reviews for them. Love the covers, nice!

Michelle said...

Amazing week for sure. You always pick such great books I always have to come back and goodreads pretty much all of them. And woohoo Clueless! I love that movie. Didn't know there was a book based on it.

Enjoy! :D

Tweet Heart sounds like good fun - I love the idea of being told through tweets and emails.

Happy Reading :)
