In My Mailbox #16

Wow what a week!!!!! After trying to catch up on some reviews - that being a complete narna and not making notes on a few books I have read *doh* I had the most unbelievable book week - lol catch up to catch up I think.

Hosted every week by the lovely Kristi at The Story Siren - click the button to visit her brilliant site.

The Story Siren 

As You Wish by Jackson Pearce (swapped with a lovely lady called Jenny who put a gorgeous note into the book for me - it really made my day)
Revealers by Amanda Marrone (another swap - thank you Claire - she sent me the book even though I didnt have a swap for her but I lent her some of my permanent collection - so kind)

Sya included this fantastic bookmark with the book - isn't it amazing. *Show-off* I now want to attempt to make one with my blog button on : P

This was included with the book from Jenny. It had a lovely message on it. Thank you again Jenny.

From the library:
Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink (looking forward to this one - Prophecy of the Sisters Review here)


Huge thanks to Lyndsey Newton for setting up this site. It gives UK Bloggers like myself a chance to read some fantastic books. How I ended up with 3 tours turning up on my doorstep Friday this week , I have no idea. Have a guess what I am doing next week.

Like I said so much for me trying to get organised.
Phew - what did you guys get - off to feed my addiction.

Update: Ok I thought I had finished this post last night, but I was awakened to the rustles of packages from the postman this morning.

The most awesome people at Atom Books sent me not one but two copies - so I am having a giveaway here

From the wonderful Keris Stainton - your book is on the way ;)

From Usbourne for me & asacheekymonkey to review : D
