In My Mailbox (#5)

In my mailbox hosted by The Story Siren. IMM is a way of letting people know what books you picked up this week. You can find more out about it here.

As you know I like to show off my dinosaurs when I do my IMM, however because this week's is a little smaller than that past few weeks I have decided to use my teeny dino, can you see her? She's so small she doesn't have a name... if you wish to give her one then please do!

Anyway! This week was a quite week, I only got two books from the library. Meg Rosoff's The Bride's Farewell and 13 Curses by Michelle Harrison.
I have heard great things about Meg Rosoff so I can't wait to read this one, my sister is kindly going to send me How I live now too so my Meg Rosoff experience is due to drastically grow! That's always a good thing!
13 curses is one that I have been after since I read the first in the series. The Library catalogue said it was there but I couldn't find it. Amazingly I managed to find it over in the children's section! I was so annoyed that I didn't think of looking over there but I seriously thought it would be in the teen bit, where its predecessor was!
The bookmark you can see is highlighting the short-listed books for the Lancashire Book Of the Year awards. I got very excited when I saw it and tweeted it through to one of the wonderful authors who has a book on there! Its very pretty and on the other side features the words "reading is precious" which we all know is true!


I was also accepted for review of two awesome sounding books on Netgalley this week! Ultraviolet by RJ Anderson and In Trouble by Ellen Levine. Unfortunately my phone seems to have freaked out when using it to read ebooks lately but hopefully it'll fix itself because these sound really really good!
