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!) 
Bought: 
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! 
Gifted:
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!! 😀 
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! 
Book Tours: 
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! 😀 
What was in your mailbox this week? 
  • Any time darling! I may have to borrow it from you if you say its good!

    And a New Funeral for a Friend album?! woo excited for you!! =)

  • I bought XVI ages ago and still haven’t got round to it yet! The Swan kingdom is so pretty…it’s in my basket to buy after the London trip!

  • I have Bermudez Triangle too and am really looking forward to reading it. BT sounds like such a good book 🙂

    Make sure you read You Against Me soon because it is really, really good! I am a bit bias though becuase since I read Jenny’s Before I Die I’ve been somewhat obsessed with her books 😛

  • It looks like you’ve got some great books this week! 🙂

    I really see what you mean about the redesign for swan kingdom – it looks fab!

  • What a lovely haul. I got The Seven Sorcerers on Amazon Marketplace too for about the same price a few months ago. What a bargain eh?

  • Great haul! I’m really wanting to read You Against Me.

    Hope you enjoy your books!

  • Great haul, I keep seeing XVI recently and I can’t wait to get it myself, it sounds really good!

  • The Boyfriend List is SO funny. Absolutely hilarious. I hope you enjoy all your books!

  • Awesome books! I’ve heard awesome things about The Boyfriend List and I really want You Against Me 😀
    Happy reading!

  • Awesome books! I can’t wait to see what you think of them. Especially You Against Me and the Seven Sorcerers! Enjoy!

  • I really enjoyed “You Against Me”, though I didn’t adore it like I did “Before I Die”. Looking forward to hearing what you think!

  • I’ve been wanting to read XVI for ages, it sounds really interesting (plus I love anything set in the future :P). As for The Cursed Ones, I liked it but didn’t love it – I hope you enjoy it though! Happy reading 🙂

  • I hope you like The Swan Kingdom! I didn’t see the re-designed cover before now, but it is very pretty!

  • I’ve wanted to read Bermudez Triangle for a while now, but I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I can’t wait for your review. I’d love to know what you think 🙂

  • So your the one that got XVI! I requested it then got the email saying it had been swapped already! SAD!

    The Swan Kingdom is amazing! Hope you enjoy as much as I did 🙂
