In My Mailbox #8-2011 aka Christmas in the Mail [ : D ]

In My Mailbox is hosted by the lovely Story Siren every week.

This week has been the most fantastic book week EVER.
I am only showing a bit of what I had as I went nuts on the book buying this week and it is going to have to last me for the rest of the month. Thank goodness I am back in the library on Monday; still surrounded by books without spending anything, lol.

For Review (No I can't believe it either) Much screaming and happy dancing took place [ : D ]

For Review: I felt really really bad requesting this on Twitter - I don't know how people have the courage too. Anyway I am eternally grateful that I have it. Started it last night and all I can say at the moment is WOW. I really want my pupils to read this series, so I will be taking it into the library when I have read it, and hopefully tracking down a copy of The Body Finder for them { no budget left until May :( }

Pre-Order I had totally forgotten about:

(the last book of the series - can't wait to find out how this one ends)

Swapped via RISI

From UK Book Tours - Lynsey you are totally AWESOME

So there we have a small snippet of the books I received this week. I will be doing the rest next week - squeezing every last drop of book goodness out of half term. Apologies for the site being down this week - but now we have the lovely domain name Asamum Booktopia with loads of thanks and hugs to Susan K Mann for sorting out all the technical stuff (beautiful and intelligent).

I have also been under the weather this week and not been able to comment much - I am hoping to make up for that today {2nd day of antibiotics, feeling slightly better if it wasn't for the blisters on the roof of my mouth :( } Also debating writing a personal post about why I HATE February, you let me know what you think. Thanks for sticking with me - you guys ROCK [ : D ]


  1. I'm so jealous, you have Blood Magic! I really really want that book :L I look forward to seeing what you think of it. =] Happy reading!

    Here's my IMM:

  2. what a great week! i think u should do a personal post, i love it to know a bit about the bloggers as well as the blogs they write.

    also i would never be brave enough yet to request a book. maybe after the blog has grown a bit :-)

    feel better

  3. all the random house goodies! I think my postman has lost mine :(

    glad your name is finally sorted!!

  4. Aww Emma, I send you a zillion hugs and hope you'll feel better soon!!
    And great bookish week :)

  5. Great IMM!! If you're up for a borrow/swap of Desires of the Dead...I've got The Body Finder which you're welcome to have...I'd love to read and return DOTD in exchange? No pressure - just pop me an email....hate seeing books sitting on my shelf after I've read them knowing others can read them is far better :)

  6. Desires of the Dead was really good- I hope you enjoy it! I also got Where She Went and can't wait to read it. If I Stay was one of my favorites! Enjoy all of your books!

  7. Great book week this week and I'm glad you got the domain sorted.

    I hope you're feeling better soon.

    Happy Reading :D

  8. Great books, and congratulations on your newly sorted site! Susan is brilliant - and so are you! :)

  9. I want Blood Magic :( Where She Went is supposed to be pretty good too! Have a great week!

  11. Wow, great books! I can't wait to read Where she Went and Across the Universe!

    Happy Reading!

  12. Hi Emma! So many great books! Thanks so much for dropping by. I'm so sorry to hear you are under the weather! I hope you get feeling much better soon! HUGS!!

  13. Where She Went! Hunger! BLOOD MAGIC! Virals! It's like you received all my top want-to-reads for 2011... Also Desires of The Dead is awfully good - it has a lovely feeling of old school crime thriller about it.

  14. Happy Bookmas! Awesome stuff this week, I really hope you love Across the Universe and Where She Went, which I thought was fantastic! Feel better!

  15. Yay! I can comment and see your blog again. Fantastic list of reads hon. I can't wait to read your review for Across the Universe and Desires of the Dead :) HOpe you enjoy all your reads.
