In My Mailbox #20 - New Books This Week!

In my Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren in which bloggers share the books they have received each week.

A late IMM this week as I'm just back from London. The gig I had planned to go to was cancelled, (boo!), but I had fun nonetheless! 
For Review:

I was super excited to get an early review copy of Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan. I've been looking forward to reading this one for a while.  Love the UK cover art! 

New name, new town, new life. Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there's no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends ...when you're immortal. But now, after centuries of feeding from the lives of the innocents around her, of living with little care for others, Nastasya is ready to turn towards the light. 'After some of the events I've witnessed I felt like I was a shell with nothing alive left in me. I hadn't been going around killing people, but people were hurt -- the memories just kept trickling in like rivulets of fresh acid dripping into my brain until I wanted to scream. It was in my blood, I knew. A darkness. The darkness. I had inherited it, along with my immortality and my black eyes.' Captivating, intense and with an incredible and original voice, EVERLASTING LIFE is a haunting story of friendship, love and secrets, tragedy and loss. Sometimes life is eternal...

I also received Entice, the third installment in Carrie Jones Need series. The first two book in this series have been sitting on my shelf for quite some time now, so I really must get started on them soon!

Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that's not quite how things have worked out.

For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't just turned. She's Astley's queen.

From Bookmooch:

I've read a lot of mixed reviews of this one, but I really like the sound of it, so here's hoping it works for me!

Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers — normal, at least, for identical “mirror” twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn’t know existed has died and left them her amazing flat in a building by Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin … but they have no idea that they’ve been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the OCD-suffering crossword setter who lives above them to their aunt’s mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the mother of the girls — her own twin — and who can’t even seem to quite leave her flat….


  1. Immortal Beloved looks awesome!
    Enjoy :)

  2. I loved Her Fearful Symmetry so much it's a must if you like gothic ghost stories! Love the cover for Immortal Beloved very envious of that one! x

  3. Oh my gosh, you have Entice. I can't wait for that one. I read Need and enjoyed it but have yet to read Captivate which is still sitting on my shelf. I can't wait for your Immortal Beloved review - hope it's a fabulous read. I have to say I love this cover for it!

  4. fab books! I got entice last week and need to get it read soon

  5. I am yet to read the series by Carrie Jones.Its been on my TBR for a long time. I am looking forward to your review of Immortal Beloved

  6. Both of those first two covers are incredible! I almost picked up Her Fearful Symmetry the other day but didn't. I've heard mixed reviews about it as well. Can't wait to hear what you think!

    My IMM vlog

  7. I keep seeing the Carrie Jones' books. They look, well, "Enticing" :) I'll have to put them on my list.

  8. What a gorgoeus book cover week.
    Yes I am totally that shallow where books are concerned ;)
    Happy reading honey :D

  9. How do you do the pictures with the side by side bordered text? Photos always seem to mess me up.

  10. Immortal beloved looks great. I really need to read the Entice series. Great IMM

  11. i want to read entice!! they all look great!

  12. Three gorgeous covers!! I am so jealous of the UK covers for Fearful Symmetry and Immortal Beloved---like them both so much more than the US covers! Guess I'll have to visit book depository soon! :) Enjoy all your books!

  13. I’m loving the covers for Immortal Beloved and Her Fearful Symmetry! I thought Immortal Beloved was really good. Her Fearful Symmetry was a strange one, but I liked it more than The Time Traveler’s Wife. I really need to read Captivate. I keep putting it off :)

    Enjoy your new books!
