In My Mailbox #61

Yay, I got some more amazing books, but that's hardly surprising since, y'know, I kinda bought them and I obviously wouldn't if I didn't think they are fantastic, LOL! So here's are some of the books I couldn't resist buying recently - those that have arrived in the past week:

HESTER'S STORY by Adele Geras - I came across this book quite randomly and I was immediately captivated by the cover and the premise - ballet and a mystery, totally my cup of tea! It's apparently mostly sold out so I was over the moon when it was still available at Book Depository, yay!
THE NAME OF THIS BOOK IS SECRET by Pseudonymous Bosch - This one is suspiciously similar to Lemony Snicket's ASOUE and the rumour has it this might be one of his alter egos! In case you didn't know, I thought ASOUE was positively brilliant and this book really does sound quite a bit like it so I just had to have it immediately! Knowing me, I'll probably order the rest of the series before I even read this book, lol.
THE SECRETS OF SOPHIA MUSGROVE: DANCING & DECEPTION by Janey Louise Jones - Look at this cover! Don't you just love it?! This sounds & looks like a totally cute historical YA read - another one that I just *had* to have as soon as I saw it, hehe.

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend, darlings!
Me? Oh, you know, I'll just be reading THE DISTANT HOURS!!! I started it today and I'm loving it already and my plan is to dedicate the whole weekend to it! :)

With the author name Pseudonymous Bosch I couldn't help but look up the series on Wiki. The cover definitely looks similar to the Lemony Snicket books, but apparently it was written by Raphael Simon (?) who used to write for Nickelodeon.... looks like a good read though! Cant wait to see your review. :)

Oh, nice new books! Hester's Story definitely sounds great and the cover - oh, so beautiful... Just pulls you in.

The Hester's Story cover kinda reminds me of one of the covers I've seen for The Distant Hours with that gate!

I've never heard of any of these, though all three sound great!
The Name Of This Book Is A Secret is exactly what Lemony Snicket *would* call a book- if it is him.
Happy Reading!
