In My Mailbox (#4)

In my mailbox hosted by The Story Siren. IMM is a way of letting people know what books you picked up this week. You can find more out about it here.



aww Trevor the triceratops is showing off my books this week 😉


So this week I have to send out a HUGE thank you to Keris Stainton. She is absolutely wonderful and offered to send my Die For Me by Amy Plum. This is one of my most wanted books of the year and I really wanted to read it so when she said she’d me her copy I was literally bouncing in my chair at work! 
I bounced again after I picked up the parcel from my post office yesterday morning and I realised that there were actually two books in the parcel… OH yes…. Keris also sent me my very own (signed yay!) copy of her new book, Jessie <3’s NYC, which is coming out in July! I read it yesterday and seriously… go pre-order, now!! 😀 


I was also very naughty in town today and bought Chime by Franny Billingsley (for only 2.99!!) and Sprout by Dale Peck. I couldn’t resist, a fiver for two books, one of which has not long been out and the other sounding really good… I have an obsession! 


Then my weekly trip to the library meant I managed to pick up Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce and Clubbing by Andi Watson and Josh Howard… I’ve never heard of this one and I have to be honest, I only picked it up cos the cover really grabbed me but considering its a graphic novel and it sounds like it’ll be a bit of a fun read, we’ll ignore that I was judging by its cover!! 


Also I keep forgetting to share what books I receive through NetGalley with you guys. Over the past two weeks I have been sent The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch and The Blackhope Enigma by Terresa Flavin.

And Finally… I thought I’d share with you my new bookcase which I, em, comendeered from my boyfriends mums 😉 I never say no to free furniture! lol

    I definitely need a bookcase! All my books are all over the place, but mostly in cupboards, where no one can see them.. Books are meant to be seen! I love how Harry Potter dominates your top shelf!
    I’d love to read all of the books you got this week! Hope you enjoy them all! 🙂

    @Viv; we shall have to compare notes 😉 lol I mentioned I needed a new bookcase in front of T’s mum and there you have it! 😉 she is a saint!

    @Phanee; Thank you for the blog follow! Books are meant to be seen, I couldn’t put my babies in the cupboard! lol and yes, HP was stuffed in with all the others but for now I have enough space to have them on one shelf in their own! 😀
