For this week In My Mailbox post I decided to feature only the books that are recently released. For the fast few days or weeks I’ve been hunting copies of books that will fit for reading challenges that I joined to such as Debut Author Reading Challenge and Contemporary Reading Challenge which all requires books that were released this year. Here are the books I got that can be considered for the reading challenges:
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Thanks to Louisse for pointing me where to buy a signed copy of John Green‘s latest novel, The Fault In Our Stars. I’ve been waiting for this book since I found out about it. I almost pre-ordered a copy from Book Depository but when I found out that local book stores will be selling a signed edition, I decided to just wait till it become available locally. Which is a right choice since there are some issues that not all pre-ordered books that were delivered are signed, and waiting orders from book depository will take longer not to mention that there’s no guarantee that the book will arrived in perfect condition due to postage handling . My copy has a purple signature in it, no yeti or hanklerfish doodles. I’m not sure if there were copies with John Green‘s doodles that reached here in Manila. But if I saw one I’ll definitely buy another copy. I want one with the yeti doodle.
Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer
I’m also surprised to see these three books above available from local book stores which are all perfectly fit for Debut Reading Challenge. I didn’t expect to see these books to be available here this soon since it is not always that our local book stores get copies of recently released books. I guess our local book stores are improving. I really don’t know what to expect from all these books but I’m excited to read Cinder because of Fiktshun‘s high rating review for this one.
I’ll be posting the other books I acquired in my next IMM post. Some of those books I acquired earlier than these books but since they don’t fit under new releases I decided to separate them. What about the rest of you, what books did you get this week?
