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.
This week Steve the Stegosaurus says hello… you will be introduced to all of my dinosaurs… I assure you of that.
I got some really cool things in my mailbox this week… with lots of thanks to a couple of awesome bloggers!
First of all I got signed copies of Fallen and Torment by Lauren Kate! These were won from Sarah at Feeling Fictional in her 1st Blogoversary give-away. It was such a surprise to win and I was so excited! thank you so much Sarah!
Then the wonderful Becky The Bookette was really kind and sent me her extra ARC of Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott. I can’t wait to start this one, I’m currently reading Zoe’s Daughter of the Flames and whilst I’ve been told they are totally different Zoe’s writing is so so beautiful I don’t mind the stories being completely different!
Of course my book addiction is strong so when I went into town yesterday I HAD to go into the Oxfam book shop… I cant help myself! Luckily the pretty hardback copy of Inkheart by Cornelia Funke that I saw last week was still there and my will power wasn’t as strong as last week so I bought it! For only £2 I couldn’t say no really could I?!
Then last but not least is a book that I bought under the guise that it’s for my boyfriends son. Lord Loss by Darren Shan. This book came out just as I thought I was getting a bit old for Darren Shan. I read the Saga of… books when I was younger and I loved them. Unfortunately being the kind person I am I gave all of them, yes all… 🙁 to my younger cousin and never got them back. I loved those books but when Lord Loss came out I was a teenager and too cool for it obviously… I have heard good thins about the lord loss series though so I bought it for L and I plan on borrowing it from him at some point 😉
So that is my haul this week. Hope you enjoyed, and of course I hope you like Steve… He might cry if you don’t… he’s a sensitive stegosaurus!
