In My Mailbox #70

LOOKING FOR LEON by Shirley Benton - A surprise review copy from Poolbeg. Sounds interesting and looks great, although I wish the title was really sparkly, but otherwise the cover's lovely.
CRYSTAL BALLS by Amanda Brobyn - I fell in love with this cover as soon as I saw it and I can't wait to read it! Thanks for offering a review copy, Amanda!
RSVP by Helen Warner - A surprise review copy from S&S UK. It came wrapped in this blue and brown paper that you can see under the books and the cover was sprinkled with little silver hearts that you can also see above - adorable! I love it when people put in an effort like that! Well done, Ally. ;)
FAKING IT by Lotte Daley - I've been waiting for this book for aaaages and now I finally have it, yay! It sounds fantastic and I wish I could read it NOW, but sadly I have no spare time. :(
GETTING AWAY WITH IT by Julie Cohen - Another book I've been VERY excited about, but decided to wait for the paperback and now I got a surprise review copy from Headline - thank yoooou! I cannot wait to read this - it sounds brilliant, plus LOOK AT THE COVER!!! This is hands down one of my absolute favourite covers EVER! Outstanding! Amazing! Beautiful!
MERMAID by Carolyn Turgeon - Another surprise review copy from Headline! I'm not sure how I feel about novels that feature mermaids, but this one looks interesting ...

That's it from me, what did you get? :)

Mermaids haven't come up as a YA genre much yet so be curious to see what that's like! Some great books there!

Chloe - chicklitreviews.com said...

I've got all of those bar Lotte Daley's one. You'll love RSVP, I wasn't overly taken by Crystal Balls, I can't wait to read Looking for Leon and take a look at the back of Getting Away with It... Leah's review is quoted as Chick Lit Reviews on the back :D

Cathy said...

Wow! Look at all those fabulous (and new) books! Great selection. Have fun reading!

Queen N said...

HI, it's such a shame that you don't have much time to read :( You've got some cute and wonderful books there! Hope you'll love Getting Away With It as much as I did! I definitely have to get Looking for Leon (it was out of stock a few weeks back when I wanted to order it, but now it looks like it's back in stock) even though I've read some mixed reviews about it.

Thanks for your comment on my IMM yesterday, yeah, I love my kindle, and it's so much fun to read on it and it really looks cute with the pink leather case, I'm thinking about buying one in every colour :P haha. Yeah, Swept Off Her Feet is really cute, fluffy and a wonderful read (I'll try to get a review up later this week) - it definitely seems to be your kind of book!

Have a nice week, with hopefully some free time for reading!

Great books!!, So jealous you got Getting away with it for review. Happy Reading, can't wait to see what you have to say about them :D

Kelly Moran said...

great list there. great post.

I woke up Sunday a.m. to find my blog, my 500 plus followers, my 100plus author interviews, and my 200 plus reviews gone. Blogger gave no explanation, but I think the account was hacked. Change your password often!

I have reloaded the interviews and reviews, plus redesigned the blog. But if you could, please hit the "follow" button so I can reclaim the fellow bloggers I miss. I'm still following you, as my account remained--thank goodness!

Thank you!

Wow, what a lovely lot of books you've got there. Do you buy most of them pr get a lot donated from publishers etc etc. Who do I have to blackmail/threaten/kidnap to get such booky treasures dropping through my letter box??
