In My Mailbox

It's time for In My Mailbox, a weekly meme by The Story Siren!

This was a great bookish week - I received three books for review and went book shopping with a good friend. The Selexyz book store in Maastricht is amazing. You can see a picture here. It's built in an old church and even though their English selection is tiny, they got some very surprising books there.

Click on the cover to go to the Goodreads page.

For Review: 

A big thank you to Cedar Fort! It's a young-adult shifter book, and it looks pretty good. I'm looking forward to read it.

I was invited by Bold Strokes Books to read this title, and of course I can't say no to that. I've read one book by them before, They mainly publish LGBT books which I think is awesome. Even though Love Life doesn't really look like my thing, I'll give it a try (:

This week this huge manuscript came into the mail. It's a review copy printed on A4. It's a first, but the book looks interesting!


I heard so many great things about this book, so when I found this cover (it's so pretty! it has these awesome red swirls around the title) I knew I had to buy it. The size of it is pretty intimidating though... I hope I can find the time to read it soon

I was so surprised to find Cinder here in the Netherlands! Usually we don't get the new young-adult releases. I wasn't planning on buying it, but that cover kind of forced me to take it home anyway. I'm really looking forward to read this, it sounds awesome (:

What do you have in your mailbox this week? Leave a comment! (:

So we're EU neighbors, then. ;D Well, if you squint, we are, since I'm from Poland.

Jealous of your copy of Cinder! We don't have stuff like that here, and if we do, it's pretty pricey.

Happy reading!

Here's my IMM. ♥

I've never bought anything from Selexys, but wow is that an amazing place to have a bookshop!  I'd be too busy looking at the ceiling to notice the books....maybe not ;-)  It's great to see you found Cinder there - I've noticed that the selection of English books available, even though incredibly pricey is rapidly expanding - makes me happy :)

Enjoy your books!

I find it's always a race to finish before the book falls apart with unbound proof copies! Hope yours is more sturdy.

OMG! I want to read Cinder so bad, but it probably will never arrived to Uruguay. Great Imm!

Michelle Chew said...

Great set! Cinder is fab. The ShapeShifter book is new to me, but looks great.

Hannah said...

Shapeshifters are <3 and I have that edition of Discovery of Witches as well! Don't know when I'll have time to read it though. :(
And wow, a printed manuscript. That is unusual!

Ashelynn @ Gypsy Book Reviews said...

oh wow The Shapeshifter's Secret has an amazing cover! Love that. And hooray for Cinder! I bought that one when it released and have yet to actually read it. One day! :) 


Nicole M said...

I loved Cinder, and I really like the cover you have over there in the Netherlands! I also really want to read A Discovery of Witches. Great haul! :)

Great books! That books store is UNBELIEVABLE. I would be there every free moment I had! :)

Cinder looks sooo good! I need a copy for myself. Do you use the Book Depository? You'll have access to so many more books. :)

Happy Reading!LuciaiLive, iLaugh, iLove Books

I have just started A Discovery of Witches! It seems good so far. The cover is gorgeous but I'm reading it on my kindle, but I think if I really like it and would read it again I need to buy it in paperback form! I also need to get my hands on Cinder!
Great haul of books this week :)

Here's my mailbox post!

Ooooh! Looks like you got some yummy books this week! 

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely cover for "The Shapeshifter's Secret." I don't have a couple of "A Discovery of Witches" yet but yeah, I read it's good too. While for "Cinder" I went thru its blog tour and it piqued my curiosity especially when Cinder repairs and old house-bot. She has this WiFi ability in her head. It was cool. 

Leah @ The Pretty Good Gatsby said...

Yay for shapeshifters! I'm not sure how I feel about that cover though..

On the other hand, that's a gorgeous cover of A Discovery of Witches! It's been on my to read list for ages and I've heard absolutely wonderful things about it! :) Enjoy!
