In My Postbox #24

In My Mailbox idea from Kristi @ The Story Siren, and all links take you to Amazon UK.

Hello everyone! First off, let me apologies for the relative silence the last week or so. I've been sick with the cold/flu/lergy and haven't really had the time or energy to do much besides lay in bed feeling sorry for myself and reading! Getting better though, and the review list is growing and that needs to be sorted out, so I'm hoping this week won't be so quiet! Anyway, I got some very cool books this weeks, so without further or do, here is this week's In My Postbox!

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting.

"Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies – or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world...and the imprints that attach to their killers. Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift, but now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him. Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer – and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling in love, Violet is getting closer to discovering a killer...and becoming his prey herself."

I'm reading this now actually and loving it! The cover is so simplistic and beautiful. It really stands out! Thanks to Sam at Headline for this! :D (Published 11th November!)

Entice by Carrie Jones.

"Zara and Nick are soul-mates - they're meant to be together for ever. But that's not quite how things have worked out. For starters, Nick is dead, and has been taken to Valhalla, a mystical resting place for warriors. If they can find the way there, Zara and her friends will try to get him back. But even if they do, Zara has turned pixie - and now she's Astley's queen! Meanwhile, more teenagers go missing as a group of evil pixies devastates the town of Bedford. An all-out war seems imminent and Zara and her friends need all the warriors they can find..."

I haven't actually heard of this series before, so I'm looking forward to reading this! Thanks to Emma at Bloomsbury for this! (Published 4th January 2011!)

Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
UK Proof/Advanced Reader's Copy

"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.

Captivating, intense and with an incredible and original voice, IMMORTAL BELOVED is a haunting story of friendship, love and secrets, tragedy and loss."

This sounds really good and I am thoroughly looking forward to reading it. The cover is really cool, and so is the envelope that the book actually came in. Check it out below (Massive white bit in the middle is where my address was, deleted for obvious reasons, ha!). Thanks to Hodder & Stoughton for this! (Published 6th January 2011!)

So there you go! Those are the awesome books I got this week. Big thanks to all the publicists/publishers! I appreciate every book I get sent! Thank you! Hope everyone has a great week!
