I was away last weekend and didn't get a chance to post my mailbox so you get two weeks worth today! Actually though, the last two weeks have been pretty calm which is definitely a good thing as I have a billion books (only a slight exaggeration) to read as it is. Definitely looking forward to all of these ones though.
Alone in the Classroom by Elizabeth Hay (Random House Canada)
The London Train by Tessa Hadley (ARC) (TLC Tours)
Really excited for all of these, Ashes is a YA dystopia that's supposed to be fantastic, while Alone in the Classroom is new Canadian Fiction. The London Train is for an upcoming book tour, and although it is an ARC isn't that cover gorgeous?
I read the first 100 pages of Divergent online and got SO hooked, combine that with the fact that I've only seen rave reviews and I knew it was time to order my copy. Then I had to wait for it to arrive anxiously. Totally worth the wait though, this is easily one of my new favourite books. I'll be reviewing it soon.
I am SO excited for Awaken, I just love my YA dystopia and this one- a love story set in a world where everyone communicates via computers instead of in person- definitely has a creepy and believable premise.
To be honest, I didn't really know what The Sack of Bath was about when I pre-ordered it several months ago. I just knew it was by a publisher, Persephone, that I'd been hearing really great things about and it was available for $1 (I think that was a mistake as other ones are around $19) so I hit buy. It actually has a lot of black and white photos instead to accompany the text... still not completely sure what it is about but I will definitely be finding out more in the future.
What was in your mailbox this week? Or in your suitcase, if you went to BEA in which case I am insanely jealous! I'm hoping I can maybe make it in 2013...
