In My Mailbox (#18)



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!! 

***


As you all loved Terry last week, he's here again, but not for long... I'm taking him to work with me tomorrow so he can sit on my desk! :D 


For review:
Undead - Kirsty Mckay 
The Butterfly Heart - Paula Leyden 
thank you to Chicken House for sending me a GORGEOUS finished copy of Undead... I've already read and reviewed it on my blog here but then gave my ARC to a friend so I'm glad I got a finished copy! :D 
Also thank you to Paula Leyden for sending me a copy of her amazing sounding book, The Butterfly Heart, I read about this one on Viv's blog, Serendipity Reviews, and it sounds just incredable! 

Gifted:
Elsewhere - Gabrielle Zevin
Wintercraft: Blackwatch - Jenna Burtenshaw
Thank you to my LOVELY blogger friends, Cait (The Cait Files) and Emma (Book Angel Booktopia) for sending me these!! Elsewhere sounds beautiful and I've been told by lots of people that I need to read it and the Wintercraft series also sounds great... the author is from my hometown and I love to support anyone "local" (I've since moved away!) so I cant wait to read this series and hopefully love it and promote it to everyone! 

So what did you get in your mailbox?

Also, today is the final day to enter to win a book to the value of a fiver on my blog! Go here! The winner will be announced on Tuesday!

I have been told Elsewhere is amazing. I have a copy but I haven't read it yet.

I'm loving the new blog look by the way. I haven't been around much lately so this may be a change from ages ago for all I know but I love it.

I'll let you know how I get on with Small Town Sinners.
