In My Mailbox (#8)

In My Mailbox is hosted by the lovely Kristi, The Story Siren, if you wish to learn more please visit her page here.
OK, so by Friday I only had one book… Tesco BOGOF on Children’s Chart is evil! and I had to visit my new library so I picked up a couple of books there! 
Bought: 
Running In Heals – Helen Bailey
The Missing – Lisa McMann 
Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy – Ally Carter
Don’t Judge a girl by Her Cover – Ally Carter 
I bought these from Tesco with the BOGOF offer – but they screwed up and didnt deduct the 6.99 for either The Missing or Running in Heals, so I complained and they gave me both of them free! So the four books cost me a grand total of £2.99! WOOP! 
Giveaway:
The Poison Diaries – Maryrose Wood 
Won from Teentoday when they gaveaway 500, yes 500!, copies. Glad I got one as it sounds great! 
For Review: 
Prisoner of the Inquisition – Theresa Breslin
Sent in exchange for an honest review by Random House Children’s Books 
Borrowed from Library: 
My Soul To Take – Rachel Vincent 
Uncle Montague’s Tales of Terror – Chris Priestly
I have been wanting to read the Rachel Vincent series for ages! and I had to get the Tales of Terror as I’ve been hearing such great things! 😀 

Galleys: 
The Day Before – Lisa Schroeder
Spellbound – Cara Lynn Shultz 
The Day Before was on the May Galley Grab from Simon and Schuster – It sounds amazing, can’t wait to read it! Spellbound was from NetGalley 
 
As many of you know I moved house this week so I thought I’d include a few pics for you of my new place… I hope you don’t mind!  Due to lack of furniture we’re sleeping on the floor! But as always I made sure my Dino’s and books were unpacked first! 😀

    Your new place looks great. Once your furniture arrives you’ll be so comfy!

    On my word I’m not sure about Tales of Terror. Sounds far too scary for me! The others all sound great and you got yourself a real bargain at Tesco!

    I love your dinosaur obsession! Have you not managed to get a bed in yet? Can’t be comfortable!
    Thanks for the explanation as to why I’ve seen so many copies of The Poison Diaries around today!

    Your new flat looks beautiful. I <3 your books and dinos 😀

    Happy reading 😀

    Shelving books is probably the most exciting thing about moving!

    BTW, I’m glad me & my bf aren’t the only ones who sleep on the floor b/c of a lack of bed. We just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    Your new flat looks great! I love the fact that you take care of all your dinosaurs first!

    4 books for 3 pounds?? That is a really good deal. Though I have no idea what a BOGOF is… Never seen one of those any of the times I’ve been to Tesco…

    Prisoner of the Inquisition sounds great and I have been wanting to read My Soul To Take for quite some time! Looking forward to hearing what you thought of them!

    Hope you enjoy all your books and that all your furniture gets there soon, so that you don’t have to sleep on the floor for much longer!

    Ok, I can’t NOT follow your blog with all the cute dinosaurs everywhere. Super cute. 🙂

    I love that you out all your books and dino’s first.

    I really want to read the Soul Screamers series. I love the UK cover!

    Your new place looks wonderful, I hope you’re settling in nicely 🙂 And what a lot of wonderful books! I keep meaning to see if the Tesco nearest to me has The Missing as I’ve not seen it anywhere else, but that Tesco is kind of a drag to get to… argh. Anyway, happy reading to you 🙂
