In My Mailbox (Feb. 7th, 2010)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren ( inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) and explores the content of your mailbox.  Or bookbox as they should now be called!

All YA books this week!

I was very picky about the covers I got for these books.  I wanted to avoid the whole race debacle surrounding Magic Under Glass -  so bought the UK cover.  I thought the US version of Knife (which is called Faery Rebels in the US) looked like it was designed for a three-year-old - so, again, bought the UK cover.  And I was annoyed that the UK publisher completely changed the cover and title of Hearts at Stake (called My Love Lies Bleeding in the UK) - so I bought the US cover!  *sighs*

But what was amazing was I was able to pick-and-choose from these covers in London bookstores!  One luxury I think US readers don't quite have... !


  1. I have been trying to find the series Beautiful Dead but i cant find it anywhere - so frustrating.

    Knife looks awesome I hope you like all your books!

  2. I didn't even realize that My Love Lies Bleeding was the same as Hearts at Stake! Huh. Learned something new every day!
    Personally I love UK covers more than the North American ones - GENERALLY. Without even knowing about the whole race issue about Magic Under Glass I just really loved the UK cover from the start. I now know that when I do get it it'll be the Book Depository sending it to me. ;)

    I loved Knife and 13 Curses (the latter you already know heh). I hope you enjoy them!!

  3. what a fantastic group of books! fabulous! love the uk covers. hope you enjoy them all! happy reading!

  4. Nice selection :o) I really enjoyed Beautiful Dead. I've not read any of the others but quite a few of them are on my wish list so I'll be watching out for your reviews

  5. I saw Hearts at Stake on a bunch of IMM posts and was inspired to put it on hold at my library. Enjoy your books!

    What Book is That?

  6. Great books you got this week. Knife looks really interesting. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  7. Oh jealous of Beautiful Dead! All great stuff this week!
