In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren, you probably already know that but if you don't, go here and find out more!!
Now before any of you say anything. I know I'm on a book buying ban BUT I put myself on this AFTER I bought the following books (I'm highlighting this as T already had a go at me for these books!)
The Boyfriend List - E Lockhart
Seven Sorcerers - Caro King
I decided to give myself a bit of money from my wages when I got paid and this is what I bought. I got both The Boyfriend List and Seven Sorcerers used from Amazon... The Boyfriend List was £1.80 and Seven Sorcerers was £2.81 (for hardback!) I think I got two bargains here!
You Against Me - Jenny Downham
The Swan Kingdom - Zoe Marriott
I love the sound of You Against Me and knew I had to get it pretty much as soon as I could, so I pre-ordered the PB and it came this week
I had also been holding off buying The Swan Kingdom as Zoe had mentioned it was getting a re-design when her new book Shadows on the Moon came out and I have to say I LOVE the new cover! Its gorgeous!
The Bermudez Triangle - Maureen Johnson!
As you may know this was highlighted on my "On My Wishlist" post last week (I think!) I wanted it because I loved the sound of it but also when I heard about Portrait of a Woman's Lesbian in YA Lit week I wanted to read it for that, but I had JUST put myself on my ban so I couldn't buy it. Thankfully I have an amazing friend, Steffi (who has a new blog here) who knew I wanted it and bought me it as an early birthday present! Thank you Steffi!! :D
XVI - Julia Karr
The awesome Vickie at ComaCalm's Corner won a signed copy of this book and I expressed my jealousy at her, so when she was offered it in a swap on RISI she took it to send to me! Thank you Vickie!
The Cursed Ones - Nancy Holder & Debbie Vigue
I asked for this one from the UK Book Tours site before it stopped. I don't know much about it but the blurb intrigued me so I cant wait to read it.
I wanted to share with you my CD that arrived this week too but I cant seem to get the picture to upload the right way round! stupid thing. It was the Special Edition version of the newest Funeral For a Friend album Welcome Home Armageddon. It came with artwork cards and in a box. its so awesome! :D
