In My Mailbox #11

Hosted by the lovely Story Siren : D

I had a great haul from the library this week. The only problem I find when I borrow from the library is the time constraint, although I really want to read these books I don't like having to re-priorities my TBR pile to move them all to the top. Hey Hoe : D

Pop Princess by Rachel Cohn (30p in a charity shop)
Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld (30p I just couldn't leave it there)

I have a lovely book swapping chain happening at the moment with some of the lovely people I have got to know through RISI, it makes me all warm & fuzzy to share the book love : D

From the lovely people at Random House Children's Books (you guys can stalk me anytime, lol)

This is the fourth book in The Nicholas Flamel series, I have read the rest of the series and love the way it combines fantasy, reality, history and adventure. I am really looking forward to finding where this story is going to take us : D

Finally, finally Linger turned up at my doorstep on Friday : D Maggie if you look at my blog *in my dreams* how can you do this to me. I have to read this most awesome book in small chunks due to the emotion you have woven into the narrative, which hits me like a tidal wave as soon as I open the book. I turn each page with trepidation, my heart pounds with the tension. Maggie thank you for such a fantastic book *will now stop acting like teen fangirl : D*

Sorry the post is late this week but we went out for the day yesterday with the girlies and I forgot to schedule it. The Big Cheese Festival in Caerphilly. If anyone is wondering *like my hubs* why it is called The Big Cheese it is because Caerphilly is quite famous for its cheese : D J thought it was an actual cheese festival until I explained it to him *sniggers*


  1. Never bite a boy on the first date is good. I enjoyed that one. So many books this week!!

  2. Enjoy Linger (I know you've been desperatly waiting for it to arrive ;) ) It reminds me I really must read Shiver!

    Seeing Caerphilly Castle brings back memories - used to visit it so reguarly when I was younger, I hope you had a good day.

    Happy Reading!

  3. Oh, how jealous I am that you have Linger. I loved Shiver and desperately need to get back into that world again. Fabulous books on your list this week - hope you enjoy all your reads!

  5. The Demon's Covenant is really excellent and Numbers has some truly chilling moments... Looking forward to hearing what you think!
