In My Mailbox #23

Thanks to the wonderful Story Siren for hosting this terrific meme.

I am extremely grateful to my blogger friends for sharing their books with me. For some reason I don't get an awful lot of books for review (do you feel sorry for me). I don't like to contact the publishers direct as I feel cheeky and think that they must get loads and loads of requests for review copies, especially as there seem to be new bloggers every week (great for promoting books/authors & publishers). So again thank you to my awesome book buddies for feeding my book addiction - YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY ROCK.


Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman
(thank you Lyndsey at Heaven, Hell and Purgatory for the loan)


Shiver by Maggie Steifvater (signed)


Thank you so much Caroline at Portrait of a Woman

See what amazing friends I have *hugs*

  11. Nice! Love the UK cover of Shiver, I may have to get me one to go next to my US one, lol.
    I don't like to request books from pubs either. I'm happy that there's netgalley for me to use. I do get lots of review requests too though and I have to turn most of them down. It's probably different since your in the UK though :(

  12. I've got Shiver on my TBR pile - I wish I could have got to a signing while Maggie was over here.

    I know what you mean about requesting books - I don't ask because I haven't been blogging very long and I don't want to seem pushy.

    Boys Don't Cry sounds brill too - enjoy x
