In My Mailbox (#2)

In my mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren as a way of letting people know what books you picked up this week, either from publishers or in the shop/library yourself. You can find more out about it here.



My IMM this week is presented to you by the lovely Tony T-rex… Ain’t he a cutie?! hehe  

So this week I got a couple of books through the post and today I went into town. This means I was naughty and not only did I visit the library but I also bought a couple of books from a charity shop! (I couldn’t resist, 99p for a Holly Black book!!!) 
First of all I have to mention that I got Rockoholic by CeeJay Skuse this week! (cue me bouncing up and down going “YAYYYY”) I won this from the awesome Mostly Reading YA blog and I cant believe I won, its signed to me and everything argh! Its my first signed book too so I will cherish it forever! 😀 Thank you!!! 
The wonderful, amazing being that is Michelle from Fluttering Butterflies is a saint and so nicely sent me Choker by Elizabeth Woods. This book has been on my wish list for a while and I’m so glad I’m finally gunna get chance to read it!


Then on my trip to the library today I got Eighth Grade Bites (The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod #1) by Heather Brewer and the second in The Midnighters series, Touching Darkness, by Scott Westerfeld. I loved the first of the Midnighters that much that I had to actually get my library to get this book in for me otherwise I was gunna go crazy! I cannot wait to read this one either. So many good books and so little time!!


Unfortunately for me, my library is just opposite the Oxfam bookshop in my town. This is a problem because every time I go past that place I have to go check what they have in! I went in today and was shocked to see Tithe by Holly Black for only 99p…. I couldn’t let that gem go so I had to get it!
As I was quickly scanning the shelves (T so didn’t even wanna come into the shop with me so I thought I best be quick!) my eyes rested upon a book I’ve never thought I’d heard about, I didn’t recognise the author or the book but I did kinda recognise the title. This book is beautiful. It is hardback and it has like a elasticated binding round it like a diary or notebook sometimes has. Its called The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. I picked it up and couldn’t put it back down, flipping through the pages there are some amazing images and the feel of the book is gorgeous… I just had to buy it!


Anyway that’s everything from me. I cant wait to get reading these books, in fact I don’t know which to read first!! 
  • I loved Tithe with all my heart. But then I love Holly Black! I am reading Rockoholic and being really slow with it. I don’t know why as the book is kinda funny and sad. Must just be me having a slow reading week!

  • I am yet to read any Holly Black so I guess Tithe might be a good place to start?
    I cant wait to read Rockoholic. I will be reading it this week! 😀 X

  • tithe is excellent and also had to say YAY FOR ROCKOHOLIC!!!

  • The Sky Is Everywhere is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read! Hope you enjoy Choker and isn’t Tony T-Rex adorable?!
