In My Mailbox (#21)

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!!

This week was a bit of a quiet one for me compared to the last few weeks… well for actual books anyway… I’ll get to my Ebooks later! 
For Review:
A Gathering Ligght – Jennifer Donnelly
Midwinterblood – Marcus Sedgwick
These two both sound amazing. I am going to an exculsive brunch with Jennifer Donnelly in October (so exclusive its invite only.. eek!) and to prepare myself the lovely Emma at Bloomsbury sent me A Gathering Light to read… It came out a few years ago, like… 2003 I think, so its older now but sounds great, I cant wait to get it started!! Also the wonderful Nina from Indigo has sent me Midwinterblood which comes out in October… This one sounds amazing and the Indigo imprint in general is awesome, there are some fantastic books coming out of this imprint! 
Nobody’s Girl – Sarra Manning
I won this over at Heaven, Hell and Purgatory. I was so happy becuase I LOVE Sarra Manning but this one came out just after I stopped reading YA so I never got round to it! I cant wait to read it, Lynsey’s review was awesome of it too which makes me even more excited!! 😀 
Amy & Rogers Epic Detour – Morgan Matson
2011/2012 diary
I had a ten pound voucher for amazon come through from a friend for my birthday and I spent most of it on ebook, but when Id exhusted my search for ebooks I had just enough left over to buy myself Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour! This book sounds AMAZING and music-y!! just my cup of tea! I also bought a mid year diary because I am determined to get myself, and the blog, organised! Wish me luck!!  


These are ebooks that I got over the past week and a bit, as you know I got my kindle last weekend so I went on a bit of a spree!

Dead(ish) – Naomi Kramer

Waterfall: A Novel – Lisa T Bergren
