In My Mailbox #68

Ooh, another awesome week - check out all the goodies I got below!

BOUGHT
BEAUTIFUL CREATURES by Lulu Taylor - Yaaaay, my copy finally arrived! You all know how much I adored Midnight Girls and I've already said how much I look forward to reading this one! I'm planning to dedicate a whole weekend to it asap because it's massive!
UNBELIEVABLE by Sara Shepard - I think this is like the 4th book in the Pretty Little Liars series and I haven't even read the first one, but I'm planning to and I can't help buying these books, heh!
ROOM by Emma Donoghue - I've seen this one around a lot and suddenly I just got the urge to read it. It sounds horrifying, but at the same time fascinating? Plus it's like the #1 bestseller pretty much everywhere so I want to see what all the fuss is about.

FOR REVIEW #1
DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver - The books was released this week and I've already read it (my review here), but I was kindly sent the pretty UK finished copy.
TO THE MOON AND BACK by Jill Mansel - This one was a surprise and even though everyone keeps praising her books, I just don't see myself ever reading them. Why? Because the covers are absolutely hideous - the colours, the text, the illustration, everything is just EW. I'm sure the stories are great, but the covers are just too horrible for me to give the books a chance - no offence.
TO TOUCH THE STARS by Jessica Ruston - I've posted an excerpt from the book here and there you can also learn how to win a copy of this book yourself!

FOR REVIEW #2
I also got a lovely goodie bag to promote RIVA, the new Mills & Boon imprint! Inside the package were the face mask, the chocolate bar aaaand two books:
MOLLY COOPER'S DREAM DATE by Barbara Hannay
SURF, SEA AND A SEXY STRANGER by Heidi Rice
I have to say, I am LOVING their new covers and they make me want to buy the whole series! Absolutely gorgeous so well done, Riva, I'll be keeping an eye on you! ;)

I've heard so many good things about Delirium, it's on my TBR list.

Great to see all these lovely books, and I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of some of them!
Hee, I got the Riva pack but my choc immediately disappeared. *glares at family* ;)
I've read one of the books so far (the surf one) and enjoyed it!

Now that goodie bag is too good to believe.

Sighing at the sight of your Delirium and Room.

Kiss them both hello for me :)

You must read a Jill Mansell novel, you're seriously missing out! She's amazing and you shouldn't let the cover come between you finding that out! I'm expecting my copy of To The Moon and Back this week, woo!

Yay for the PLL book although I HATE those UK covers! I hope you enjoy them!

Jessica Lawlor said...

My Jill Mansell copy is still on it's way in the post! Honestly, don't let the covers put you off, I have enjoyed all of her books that I have read!

Jill Mansell's new book is so lovely, really emotional and touching, please don't be put off by the cover (I love it myself!). I loved Jessica Ruston's and Lulu Taylor's, I'm sure you'll love both!
