In My Mailbox #64

I've been so busy lately that I didn't get to do an IMM for a while so here are all the brilliant books I got & bought recently:

FROM NOTHING HILL WITH LOVE ... ACTUALLY by Ali McNamara - I bought this mainly for the goooorgeous cover. I'm not a huge film buff so I don't know if I could enjoy this book properly, but I just had to have it because of the cover! Wow!
50 WAYS TO FIND A LOVER & THE (IM)PERFECT GIRLFRIEND by Lucy-Anne Holmes - I bought these because I've heard SO many great things about them. They're meant to be hilarious and goodness know that's my favourite kind of books!
THE SECRET SHOPPER'S REVENGE & THE SECRET SHOPPER UNWRAPPED by Kate Harrison - These just sound cute and look absolutely adorable so when I saw them in real life, I just couldn't resist them!
SINFUL DECEPTIONS by Zoƫ Miller - I'm quite intrigued by this one and I've been waiting for the paperback for aaaages!
THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY by Lucy Dawson - Sounds like a good read so I just bought it.
BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY by Ruta Sepetys (ARC) - This one is bound to be horrifying. It takes place during WWII in Siberia. I've read a few pages and my heart was instantly broken. I know this won't be an easy read, but I still feel it needs to be read. You can find about this book at the website.
THE JEWEL OF ST PETERSBURG by Kate Furnivall - Another one I love the sound and look of! Had to have it.
LAKE OF DREAMS by Kim Edwards (ARC) - I wasn't expecting this one but the synopsis sounds quite good so I look forward to reading it!

That's it from me - what did YOU get? I can't wait to find out! :)

ps: I invite you all to check out Nadine's blog THE READING QUEEN. She's been blogging for quite a while and she's one of my favourite book bloggers out there, but since she's not really promoting her blog much, she doesn't have many followers yet. I think she definitely deserves many more so feel free to check her out & follow her. :)

Thank you, thank you so much for your nice words about my blog *blushing*! I really appreciate it!

I like your IMM - wonderful covers (and books :) ). I loooooooved '50 Ways to Find a Lover', it took a few pages until I got into it, but then I couldn't stop! It's hilarious, with so much heart, I loved it. I haven't read the second one though, the Ending in the first was so perfect, I didn't want to spoil it with a second book. But some day...some day I'll read it :)
Happy Reading!

Lots of lovely books this week! I agree, Between Shades of Gray sounds very sad (and I've just read the synopsis).

I'm going to check out the blog you recommended. I trust you to have excellent taste in blogs! :)

I've read the Secret Shoppers Revenge a while back, and I enjoyed reading it! I love the covers (I wasn't aware that there was another book!)

Between Shades of Gray is my number 1 book that I want to read next year. It's on the top of my wishlist and I've already preordered it.. Can't wait to read it and to hear what you think of it.

Happy reading! My In My Mailbox is here :)
